As an official supplier of the 35th America’s Cup, The Moorings will provide all-inclusive crewed sailing yachts offering spectators a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the world-class racing action. Guests will soak up the atmosphere from the comfortable deck of their own state-of-the-art sail catamaran in the exclusive on the water spectator zone. 

Sailing enthusiasts and America’s Cup fans alike are invited to charter their own private Crewed Moorings 4800 or Moorings 5800 yacht, complete with personal captain and gourmet chef, for the ultimate America’s Cup experience.
