Introducing The Moorings Newest Sailing Destination Antigua

The Moorings, the world’s premier yacht charter company, is pleased to announce Antigua as its newest sailing destination with charters available now. Bareboat and skippered sailing charters in this truly stunning cruising destination are available from £560 per person on the Moorings 48.4 monohull, with 4 cabins sleeping up to 10 people. Other monohulls on offer include the Moorings 45.3 and the Moorings 51.4 and with these yachts being designed by Beneteau and Jeanneau, they offer the thrill of sailing with the comforts of home.

Antigua offers a quintessential Caribbean appeal, and is highly regarded as one of the most desirable sailing destinations in the world, delighting visitors with its easy pace, friendly islanders, 18th century charm, and distinctive elegance. Antigua is the largest English-speaking Leeward island and is surrounded by 54-miles of idyllic coastline comprised of 365 beaches and secluded anchorages best explored by yacht.

The Moorings charter base is conveniently located at the historic Nelson’s Dockyard in English Harbour. A designated UNESCO site, this premier Antigua marina seamlessly pairs timeless architecture and naval heritage with modern amenities and stylish accommodations. Antigua also hosts a number of prominent sailing events and regattas, including the annual Antigua Sailing Week scheduled for April 28th – May 4th 2018.

When visiting Antigua, the possibilities of adventure are endless. What you do each day is quite simply your choice, which ensures that we offer a sailing holiday that is an unforgettable experience. The turquoise waters are home to some of the most treasured snorkelling conditions in the Caribbean, and also provide a safe haven for endangered Hawksbill sea turtles, which are a must-see when visiting Antigua.

“With steady trade winds and delightfully warm weather prevailing throughout the year, Antigua is a must-see sailing destination worthy of every traveller’s bucket list,” states The Moorings’ Vice President of Sales and Marketing Josie Tucci.

Back on land, visitors can indulge on Antigua’s rare Black Pineapple, famous for being the sweetest pineapple in the world. And it doesn’t stop there, come dusk, the vibrant party scene comes alive with island vibes that are impossible to resist.
