The Moorings Opens New Chesapeake Bay Location
Cruising the Chesapeake just got a bit easier for non-boat owners. The Moorings newest charter destination is going to be in Annapolis, MD for bareboat sailing, power and skippered charters on the Chesapeake Bay. The fleet will include a range of monohulls built by Beneteau and catamarans from Robertson & Caine.
A world-renowned boating destination, the Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States, spanning approximately 200 miles long from the Susquehanna River in the North to the Atlantic Ocean in the South. This area offers fantastic cruising conditions with consistent southwesterly winds averaging from 5-20 knots, as well as a balanced mix of sights ashore including the Bay’s more modernized, bustling east coast cities like Baltimore and the west coast’s quaint, old-fashioned fishing and crabbing towns with wonderful maritime heritage.
The Moorings Annapolis base is the company’s first location on the Eastern seaboard, which is great because the Chesapeake Bay is literally the ‘backyard’ for many sailors. Here, guests can charter for as little as two days or as long as they’d like to enjoy a leisurely weekend getaway while still experiencing the same world-class customer service and meticulously maintained yachts that are the hallmark of a Moorings vacation.
The Moorings will offer a fleet mix of monohulls and catamarans for sailing charters. Monohulls available for charter include the Moorings 40.3 (3-cabin/2-head) and Moorings 42CC (4-cabin/2-head), which features a center cockpit with offset helm position that opens up the cockpit space, allowing for improved sail ability and an aft deck. The new Moorings 3900 sailing catamaran and the Moorings 393 Powercat will also join the Annapolis fleet, both featuring 3-cabins and 2-heads, including a spacious master suite in the starboard hull, generator and air-conditioning.
The Moorings new charters on the Chesapeake Bay will open May 15, 2012 from its new home at the Annapolis Landing Marina.
