The Moorings Annapolis

The Moorings fleet at Annapolis Landing Marina includes mono and multi hulls. Elaine Lembo

The Moorings offers partial and full-term bareboat and skippered trips via sail and power out of its new base at Annapolis Landing Marina. I had a chance to check out the fleet of mono and multi hulls and shore facilities, which include a restaurant, showers, water taxi, and pool, during the recent 2012 U.S. Sailboat Show.

Choices in boats range from 39- to 40-feet or longer; itineraries run from three days to multi week throughout the largest estuary in the United States, a world-renowned destination approximately 200 miles long. The bay offers consistent southwesterly winds averaging from 5-20 knots.

Monohulls available for charter include the Moorings 40.3 (40-foot, three-cabin/2-head) and Moorings 42CC (42-foot, 4-cabin/2-head center cockpit), both by Beneteau. The new Moorings 3900 catamaran and Moorings 393 Power catamaran also join the Annapolis fleet, both featuring three-cabins and 2 heads, generator, and air conditioning.
