The Spanish Virgin Islands: Now a Moorings Destination


Starting in January, The Moorings will begin offering powercat charters in Puerto Rico’s spectacular—and lesser known compared to some of her neighbors—Spanish Virgin Islands. The SVIs should be particularly appealing to U.S. residents, as Puerto Rico can be easily reached via direct-hop flights from many cities along the eastern seaboard. Best of all, no passport is required to enter.

The Moorings’ charter operation has been a long-standing tradition—dating all the way back to 1969—offering both captained and all-inclusive packages as well as bareboat charters for those of you who already know the ropes. For power cruisers, the Moorings 514 Power Catamaran’s platform sports four staterooms—each with en suite heads—a fully equipped galley, and the powercat’s pièce de résistance: huge and plentiful entertaining spaces from the main saloon to the flybridge deck.

The Moorings believes the SVIs are the real selling point of this new vacation charter destination, and a quick search online for photos of “Culebra” (snake), or “Culebrita” (little snake) Island will paint vivid enough scenes of the white-sand beaches and clear blue-green waters to encourage further research.
