From June 2024, catamaran enthusiasts who don’t want to sail with their family or friends on the Adriatic coast in southern Croatia, but only want to motor, will have a great opportunity to do so. For the first time in its successful history, charter expert The Moorings is docking in Dubrovnik, Croatia, to meet the increased demand for motor yacht charters.
The historic film location of the fantasy saga Game of Thrones is expected to become the home port of a modern Powercat type 403PC by June 2024. On the completely redesigned motor catamaran, the crew glides comfortably, powerfully and yet fuel-efficiently across the turquoise sea through the mythical Croatian islands around Dubrovnik.
Plenty of space on board and high performance combined with environmentally friendly operation are the main features of the new Moorings 403PC, the charter version of the Leopard 40 from The Moorings. In 2023, the charter company introduced this type of boat in various areas around the world. Now the modern three-cabin yacht will also be available for yacht charters from Dubrovnik.
Until now, The Moorings was only represented in Marina Agana west of Trogir, now also in Dubrovnik from June
“Until now, The Moorings was only represented in Croatia in Agana, further north. The good global accessibility of Dubrovnik favored the decision of the charter company to expand its offer in this area,” says The Moorings. With the 403PC from the award-winning Robertson & Caine shipyard, The Moorings is bringing an innovative yacht to the charter market that meets the highest standards of comfort and performance.
The interior of this catamaran features elegant, high-quality fittings and finishes, from the fully equipped L-shaped galley to the three cabins, which offer plenty of space. The most striking feature, however, is the flybridge, which according to the charter company is the “largest flybridge ever on a 40-foot catamaran”.
The more powerful 320 hp Yanmar engines should provide even more fun on the waves
The aft cockpit, aft deck and sun deck are also ideal for relaxing and spending time together. The more powerful 320 hp Yanmar engines instead of the standard 250 hp engines are designed to provide more fun on the waves without losing sight of the issue of environmental protection.
Desalination and filter systems for water treatment not only make the crew less dependent on supply facilities in marinas, but should also make a significant contribution to environmental protection if The Moorings have their way.
From Dubrovnik, skippers and crew have the choice: there are many attractive cruise options from here
From Dubrovnik, the skipper and crew then have a choice: they can either head northwest along the coast and sail via Kolocep, Lopud, Sipan, Jaklian and Olpia to Peljesac (for example along the Stonski Canal to Ston / Mali Ston), take a trip west via Mljet, Lastovo and Korcula, or set off for southeast via Cavtat to Montenegro and pay a visit to Herceg-Novi, Tivat, the famous island of Gospa od Skrpjela (Mary of the Rock) or the old town of Kotor, which is well worth seeing.
Even for tourists with an affinity for water sports who simply want a room on the water in the immediate vicinity of the world-famous Old Town Peninsula Dubrovnik, chartering the new 403 PC motor catamaran from The Moorings may be a good – and inexpensive – alternative to comparable hotel rooms.
