The Moorings is a full service travel agency and can help you arrange all travel services to ensure your holiday is as seamless as possible.
We are able to provide you with low prices on airfare, arrange hotel rooms and land tours, and in many locations, book land and ferry transfers from the closest airport to our base. Book your flights with The Moorings and benefit from our ATOL protection.
Please contact your Holiday Planning Specialist to take advantage of this valuable service.
The Sleep Aboard option is a great way to customise your charter based around your travel schedule, while saving money. If you will arrive at your destination late in the afternoon, book a Sleep Aboard to stay on board your yacht at the marina that evening rather than paying for a full day of charter. This option allows you to settle into your new home on the water that evening, so you can get an early start the next day.
Contact your Holiday Planning Specialist to arrange a Sleep Aboard on your charter, or add it upon checkout if booking online.
Pre-pay your fuel ahead of time with our Fuel Package option and eliminate the worry about refueling your yacht upon return. The price of your fuel package is dependent on the location and number of days booked, this option is only available for bareboat charters in the Mediterranean. Please note if you use less fuel than the package outlines you will not get a refund on the unused amount. Discuss this pre-paid fuel option with your vacation planner to see which package is right for you.
Find more time to enjoy your charter when you hire a Moorings Skipper and/or Cook.
Add a skipper* – A charter with the option of a Moorings Skipper is an excellent choice if you have never chartered before, want to book a yacht that’s larger than you’re comfortable handling, or simply want more time for rest and relaxation. With years of cruising experience and a wealth of local knowledge, our Skippers are the ideal guides to your cruising area.
Add a Cook* – Let us take all of the work out of cooking and serving the meals, including cleanup in the common areas and the galley, leaving you even more time to spend with your family and friends sailing, snorkeling, or simply relaxing.

Make the most of your time on holiday by letting The Moorings take the hassle out of provisioning your yacht. With our personalised provisioning service, you can opt to select from customized food and beverage packages or purchase your items a-la-carte. We’ll do the grocery and deliver your provisioning to your yacht for you, saving you precious time and money when you arrive for your vacation.

Take your adventure at sea to the next level with a variety of watersports options.
