The Moorings Introduces New Charter Destination: Martinique

Published: Monday, April 8, 2019

The Moorings, the world’s premier yacht charter company, is pleased to welcome Martinique to their expansive menu of top-rated vacation destinations. Bareboat and skippered charters aboard sail and power yachts are bookable now for end-of-2019 departures. The Martinique fleet will feature mid-size Beneteau monohulls, spacious sailing catamarans from Robertson & Caine – including the award-winning Moorings 4500, and the flagship 514 Power catamaran.

Located in the heart of the Lesser Antilles’ Windward Islands, the volcanic-formed island of Martinique is a mountainous region that is part of the French Republic, making it a mecca for French-Caribbean culture, maritime history, and world-class sailing. Travelers from all across the globe can access the island easily by air, and throughout the cruising grounds conditions remain ideal all year long.

Following a 45-minute commute from the Martinique Aimea Cesaire International Airport, a Martinique yacht charter begins upon arrival to The Moorings base at the modern La Marina du Marin. This eco-friendly harbour features a wide range of services and amenities to accommodate visiting guests, including: a supermarket, bakery, laundromat, post office, tobacco shop, Currency Exchange office, medical center, car rental, tourism office, ferry service to Saint Lucia, seven shops, eight restaurants, and two bar lounges.

Nicknamed the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean”, Martinique is a cultural melting pot that effortlessly blends cosmopolitan appeal with local island charm.

“From hiking through lush rainforests to bathing in natural hot springs, strolling along exotic black-sand beaches to feasting on authentic French and Creole cuisine, this one-of-a-kind destination is worthy of every traveler’s bucket list,” says Josie Tucci, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for The Moorings. “A Martinique yacht charter with The Moorings is your all-access pass to French-Caribbean paradise in its purest form.”
