Moorings Opens In Corfu

Corfu, courtesy Greek National TourismThe Moorings announced before the 2012 Miami Boatshow that they are opening a new base in Corfu, just off the northwest coast of Greece, which opens the northern and southern Ionian islands for bareboat charters.

Called the “Jewel of the Ionian”, Corfu has consistently good weather and a choice of open sea sailing or short island hops and even some interesting ports along the mainland. 

Initially, the fleet will consist of Beneteau-built monohulls, including the Moorings 41.3 (3 cabin/2-head), 43.3 (3 cabin/3-head) and 50.5 (5 cabin/5 head).  Also available will be the Moorings 3900 catamaran, a private model of the Leopard 38, with an owner’s cabin in one hull with head and a pair of staterooms sharing a head in the other hull.

The Corfu base will be open during the primary sailing season from April through November, and charterers can expect 10-20 knot northwesterlies in the afternoons, air temperatures between 76F and 82F, and water temps of 78F.  The base is just ten minutes from the Corfu international airport.

Charterers can explore Ithaca, home of Odysseus, as well as the islands of Kefalonia, Lefkas and many more.  Expect great snorkeling and scuba diving, seafood tavernas, and quiet coves.
