As part of a $21m capital investment in fleet additions through next year, The Moorings recently announced plans to add a new flagship, the five-cabin Moorings 54.5, to its extensive range of luxury charter yachts. Available in 2010, the all-new 54.5 will be the fleet's largest monohull, representing an ongoing trend at The Moorings towards larger, roomier yachts.
Lex Raas, President & CEO of The Moorings commented, "Our market research indicates that today's charter enthusiast is seeking larger yachts with more creature comforts. Our fleet additions through 2010 respond to this trend, with both the new Moorings 54.5 and more Moorings 4600 catamarans entering the fleet worldwide."
The 54.5 has four double staterooms plus a crew's quarters. Packed with features aimed at making sailing easier and more fun, the 54.5 boasts a generator, air-conditioning, electric winches, bow thruster, electric toilets, and an inverter. Dual helms provide superior visibility while under way.
To meet increased demand for the comforts of home, the saloon of 54.5 yachts features an entertainment center with a flat screen TV, DVD player, and MP3 connectivity. A large cockpit, spacious guest cabins, and superior sailing performance make the Moorings 54.5 a standout.
