Moorings 4500 sail cat charter was an enjoyable experience.
Moorings Yacht Club Hotel was a 2-star facility at best charging 5-star prices for an aged facility. Location good but would never stay there again.

I can’t imagine a better vacation. Imogen and Ellen made this trip even more perfect. They took care of every detail and surprised us every day with an even more beautiful location and tastier food than the day before. I’m not sure how any vacation will ever be better. 😎

The 5000 catamaran was a fabulous boat with all the amenities and extra space. Water maker worked very well to replenish water supply. Best boat yet. Had a minor generator issue where generator had to be rebooted a couple of times. May was a little warmer time of year but less crowded. The BVIs speak for themselves in their wondrous beauty.

We chartered a full week on the 50' Cat out of Tortola with the best crew we could ever imagine! Imogen (Immy) and Ellen delivered the best experience possible for our group of 4 couples. The food prepared by Ellen daily was simply amazing! Each day, a different culinary lesson and amazing flavors. The drinks were all day, every day, with top shelf choices that we made. Actually the only decision I made all week was "what drink can I ask the girls to prepare for us?" And they always deliver.

The boat was amazing, the crew was even better. The snorkeling adventures in the most gorgeous secluded beaches in the BVI's made each day something to look forward to. Everyone in our group is well traveled with high expectations - and without a doubt I can say we all agreed that Immy and Ellen not only delivered well beyond expectations but really made the trip what it was for us! If you book with the Moorings out of Tortola, request these girls!!! Trust me, you will not be disappointed

We did 5 nights on the very new 4500 cat with Luca and Georgia as our co-captains and co-culinary chefs. We stayed on board (our unanimous choice) as opposed to visiting various restaurants and bars as we quickly doubted that any establishment could provide the wonderful foods and libations presented to us by Georgia and Luca. Their attentiveness and service was 5-star. The snorkeling was great at every stop. The various water toys were fun. We enjoyed mooring/anchoring in several quiet -and secluded bays. The most awesome vacay - largely due to Luca and Georgia!

My friends and family just completed a 2 week bareboat charter on a Leopard 4500L with The Moorings BVI. We could not be happier with the experience! From the initial planning, booking and pre-charter coordination to the BVI Charter and post charter checkout, the entire Moorings staff provided excellent customer service! The boat was amazing...all issues were fixed in a timely manner and the BVI staff was very helpful. I did find the Moorings online provision process a bit difficult/awkward and decided to go direct with Riteway BVI...no issues. I will not hesitate to book another bareboat charter with The Moorings!

Our Moorings experience was really wonderful. We sailed with Peter and Ally at the helm and couldn’t have asked for a more competent, personable crew. Our itinerary was great. We visited many islands in the British Virgin Islands to include Cooper, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Marine Cay, Scrub, Guana, Jost Van Dyke, Indians and Norman, starting and ending in Tortolla. The snorkeling was great. An unexpected but valuable part of our experience were the meals. They were 5-star. I would highly recommend this vacation and staff.

We sailed the BVI on the Knotty Toddy and had the trip of a lifetime. Capt. Richard and First Mate Shelly displayed exceptional professionalism, hospitality, and safety. The meals were incredible and the entire boat was cleaned constantly. We were taken to beautiful places that you can only experience on this type of vacation. 10/10

I'm more than a little disappointed that I feel the need to write this review, as I've been a fan of the Moorings for many years and have chartered many of their boats (both sail and motor). However, my recent experience prompts me to write an honest appraisal of the 464PC model (when compared to the 534PC). FYI, both are PowerCats (i.e. no sails) for the uninitiated - which we frequently prefer for "simplicity's sake".

FYI, we were 3 couples who normally charter the 534PC because we think 6 is the magic number (even when boats have 4 double berths, which both of these do) - more space, less tripping over each other, and fewer "crew dynamics" to deal with (e.g. one person or couple wants to do something different and you end up with more disagreements the more people you have). Sure, you can easily end up with the same problem with 3 couples, but the potential is much less, particularly if you choose your crew carefully.

Anyway, all that said we were unable to book a 534PC (none available in our chosen dates) - even though we were booking 3-4 months ahead. So we looked at the 464PC specs and decided they looked very comparable in the most important areas (i.e. galley configuration and what they probably call "luxury add-ons" like A/C and water-maker). The layout also featured 4 individual bathrooms, which has become an absolute necessity for us in recent years (after sailing for many years in very cramped quarters).

So, we discovered quite a few surprises when we arrived, and more to come once we got mobile. Here's the list (in no particular order)...

1. No fans in the saloon - which means you have to rely on the A/C even when you don't want to run the generator. And leaving the front door open when underway is a recipe for a wet saloon, plus there are no openable windows either.

2. The forward cabins are reasonably laid out (beds turned sideways to make them more accessible), but the aft cabins are a joke. Woefully short of room to move (you step right into the end of the bed) and no way to mount-dismount the bed except to crawl in-out. Also, only one side of the bed has anything useful in the way of a convenient shelf - the other is minimal at best.

3. On a related note, there is only ONE outlet in each of the aft cabins, so all your devices need to reside on the innermost shelf, and you'd better come equipped with a power strip. What would it have cost Robertson-Caine to add an extra outlet on the other side? Do the designers still live in the last century?

4. An overall comment that strangely applies to ALL these Leopard boats (of which we've tried quite a few). Why are there no hooks anywhere to hang stuff (either to dry or just for convenience)?? My wife has resorted to packing a large collection of 3M Command Hooks every time we sail - and we leave them intact when we leave, on the basis that the next crew will certainly appreciate them. Again, how much would a few strategically-placed hooks cost? Maybe they have a deal with 3M that forces folks to buy their own? Mind-boggling.

5. Don't be fooled by the "Zoned A/C" line in the specs of the 464PC. Yes, it is zoned, but unlike the 534 (which has 5 zones - one for each cabin and another for the saloon), the 464 only has TWO (i.e. one for each side of the boat). So at night if the two couples on either side have different views of what a "comfortable" sleeping temperature is, you'll end up with midnight Mexican standoffs beside the control panel.

6. The Water Maker is a welcome inclusion (we love these since we first had one a few years ago). However, the 464 seems to have a low-end model rated to produce 17 gallons per hour, which means it takes a loooong time to top up even a half-empty tank. We also found that running the A/C at the same time as the water-maker tripped the generator overload, which severely limited the amount of time the water-maker could run anyway (particularly when parked enjoying the surroundings). One of the technicians told us "it's one or the other, so live with it".... which basically translates to poor design in my view.

7. Continuing the water-maker comments, the valves that control which tank the device delivers water into are hidden away under the floor in very inaccessible spots and you need to adjust both sides if you want to change delivery tanks (i.e. open one, close the other or vice-versa), which further adds to the complexity of making this system work - and much of this was not even mentioned in the "briefing" so we had to work it all out for ourselves. We also found that even though we set the system to draw water from Tank 1 (for example) it seemed to also draw from Tank 2 - which seems a little incongruous to this impartial observer. Software and boating often don't mix apparently.

8. Now for the crappy stuff (pardon the pun). Flushing the holding tanks is a physical challenge at best - you can either open/close a valve buried under the walkway between cabins (and it's a long reach for anybody but NBA basketballers), or you can open/close another valve hidden away behind a secret panel in each forward bathroom - impossible to see, and almost impossible to operate as it's placed up behind various other bits. It's almost as if they decided nobody flushes tanks anyway (shame!!!) so why make it easy?

9. The electric grill on the party deck (okay, flybridge for the serious folks) is quite adequate in some cases - i.e. if there's no wind (which is very unusual in the BVI). Anything like a breeze makes cooking very challenging because (wait for it.....) the lid on the grill is made of plastic, so you'd better not close it to capture the heat or it will introduce a new meaning to the word "condiments" on your food. Of course we haven't experienced this ourselves, but one such boat in our recent past had a very melted/twisted grill lid that clearly demonstrated somebody had tried to cook in "closed grill" mode and failed miserably. Hey, closed is normally a pretty common way to grill - but plastic and heat don't mix - so again I have to ask "what were they thinking?"

10. Bear with me, we're getting close to the end. The generator makes sleeping in the port-aft cabin an impossibility for anybody but the stone deaf amongst us... so be the first aboard and make sure you don't choose that spot for your nest. And if you're asking "why run the generator all night?", read on....

11. The answer to the above question is (partially at least) because the aft cabins have no hatches (you know, those convenient hinged windows in the ceiling that allow air to flow in, unless of course a sudden squall wakes you up with the gentle pitter-patter of raindrops on your forehead). So if you're stuck in one of those miserable boxes (sorry, cabins) at the back end that resemble Harry Potter's room under the stairs, you literally have no choice but to run the A/C all night to make it livable (sleepable). Given that the BVI temps often bottom out at around 80F overnight and you have no hatch to deliver a breeze, I doubt too many of us think that's a good sleeping environment (especially when accompanied by a friendly spouse-partner who thrashes around all night in a tiny bed trying to stay cool.

Okay, I've probably gone overboard a little with this review (boating pun intended) - but if I could offer one small piece of advice to ANYBODY considering chartering a 464PC, it would be this... DON'T!! Well, not unless you only have a couple of couples who can use the forward cabins and leave the entire back empty.

In fact, we came to the conclusion that this should probably have been designed as a "463" configuration (i.e. same length but 3 cabins). This is quite common where the "owner's suite" occupies one complete hull and the other hull is devoted to the "guests" - but we would still recommend leaving the 3rd (aft) cabin empty for all the reasons mentioned above. It's very clear that shrinking the 534 by 7 feet had some significant challenges that the designers failed to address with any success.

Sure, the 534PC is 7 feet longer (I'm a math whiz too) and it costs a bit more - but suck it up and your adventure will be significantly more enjoyable and less stressful, and isn't that why we go boating in the first place? I've normally held Robertson Caine (the builders of the Leopard range) in pretty high regard over many years, but I'm sorry to say they completely missed the boat on the 464 (another pun intended) - probably in the interest of a lower price point... but as they say "you get what you pay for".

Happy sailing/boating/swimming, folks... life's too short to have a crappy time on a crappy boat in an otherwise wonderful location.
