About The Moorings

Our Heritage

The Moorings' Founders - Charlie and GinnyThe Moorings Founders - Charlie and Ginny

Our story began in 1969 when Navy veteran and sailing enthusiast Charlie Cary decided to turn his passion into a new business. Starting with just six Pearson yachts, The Moorings offered travellers a unique way to explore the islands and experience the thrill of sailing. The Carys worked tirelessly to make this new concept successful. Living out of a small hotel right next to their marina in Road Town, the couple cared for each customer like family and, in turn, earned their longstanding loyalty. Soon enough, The Moorings started to grow. Charlie and Ginny expanded their fleet, offering larger yachts and Crewed charters while hiring staff from the local community to help carry the company into the future.
