From The Moorings

Our Heritage

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 travelers 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.

Today, after almost 50 years at sea, The Moorings has established its reputation as the world's premier yacht charter company. Our award-winning charter fleet now includes more than 400 yachts in 20+ destinations across the globe. Whether it’s a self-skippered monohull; a Sail catamaran with a skipper at the helm; a high-performance Power catamaran or a Crewed yacht with a captain and chef—we’re here to make your time on the water truly unforgettable.
