Customer Report on Buying a Used Moorings Charter Boat

In July, David Kory provided an informative review of the 2006 Beneteau Cyclades 51.5 he bought out of the Moorings Tortola fleet in 2011. He sailed her more than 20,000 miles, through 21 countries' waters, and through all sorts of conditions. If you missed that story, it's worth a look. Now Kory has produced an experiential report on buying a former charter boat, published in this month's Southwinds Magazine. For anyone wondering "what's the deal?" with buying a formerly chartered boat from the Moorings, Kory provides an answer. The article explains everything from the exceptional value of a used charter boat to the importance of research, the survey and sea trial, even considerations for resale value. Read the article in Southwinds Magazine.
