The Ultimate All-Inclusive Caribbean Sailing Vacation

A beach day at Soggy. A rum night at Cooper. Lobster dinners on Anegada. Beach hopping on Cane Garden Bay. Snorkeling around The Dogs. Enjoying the splendor of the North Sound.

Chartering a sailboat around the BVI remains one of the Caribbean’s bucket-list experiences — and one of the region’s most authentic vacations.

It’s something of a rite of passage for Caribbean aficionados, a box one must tick for advanced Caribbean travel credentials.

And for decades, The Moorings has been at the forefront, with a fleet of yachts for sailors and travelers to explore the wonders of the BVI. (In fact, this year the company is celebrating its 50th anniversary).

And now it’s gotten even better.

The Moorings has officially launched its 50-foot, six-inch Moorings 5000 boat in both four and five-cabin layout, the latest work by Robertson & Caine that lets travelers take an all-inclusive, crewed sailing getaway across the BVI.

The 5000 has four fully-equipped en-suite guest cabins, along with a fifth for the crew, with each cabin has boasting zoned air conditioning.

And the newest addition to The Moorings’ fleet features an expansive saloon and amenities like an onboard watermaker, a flatscreen TV/DVD, bluetooth connectivity, free Wi-Fi and even little touches like double USB ports in all of the staterooms.

A crewed vacation means you can focus on the adventure, on the exploring, on the views, while your captain and your on-board chef do the heavy lifting.

The Moorings’ all-inclusive vacations include all meals, snacks and beverages, a fully-stocked bar, free Wi-Fi and housekeeping.

The new ship is instantly the new flagship of The Moorings’ sailing catamaran fleet, and a company spokesperson told Caribbean Journal it has plans for further distribution of the yacht around the region, including in Belize in 2020. (The company also plans to launch the new five-cabin 5000s for bareboating in the next few weeks.)

It’s just a nice place to be.

This is the ultimate Moorings sailboat, and the ultimate way to experience the BVI.

In other words, it just might be the ultimate all-inclusive vacation in the Caribbean.
