The Moorings & Sunsail relocate to Marina Fort Louis in Marigot
Severe damage to The Moorings and Sunsail charter yacht base in Oyster Pond, St. Martin, has led the brands to relocate east to Marina Fort Louis in Marigot. It’s a good move for many reasons. First, the new location is now in one of the most iconic marinas in the Caribbean. With its unique circular shape and striking seawalls, Marina Fort Louis is exceedingly picturesque and often photographed from the historic hilltop fort nearby. Second, though the fort dates to the 18th century, the marina itself is quite modern with WiFi, shower facilities, a dive shop on site, and bilingual staff. Third, the marina is within walking distance to the numerous restaurants and bars on the Marigot waterfront.
“The Moorings offers charters of all types here, including bareboat sailing aboard both monohulls and sailing catamarans, power catamaran charters, and all-inclusive crewed yachts. Yachts in our St. Martin fleet range from 39- to 58-feet LOA,” says Marketing Manager Ian Pedersen. A week’s charter from St. Martin easily includes stops around the island, Anguilla and the Prickly Pear Cays to the north, the offshore islands of Pinel and Tintamarre, and down to St. Barths.
