Luxury Yacht Downtown Charleston SC

Family-friendly Charleston houseboat in Downtown Charleston, near College of Charleston
Enjoy the beautiful sunset and watch Charleston's resident pod of dolphins as you stay on our 2 Bedroom/2 bathroom 40' yacht! Park for free at our fantastic location on the Ashley River and the peninsula of beautiful downtown Charleston, SC. Walk to a Riverdog's baseball game (single-A affiliated with the Yankees), or simply watch the stadium's fireworks from the comfort of the yacht's deck while sipping a cocktail. Cross the street to Publix to grab any groceries you need for your stay. We are right around the corner from the Citadel (go Bulldogs!), and minutes away from the shopping and nightlife of King Street. Charleston's southern charm, historic mansions, and world-renowned restaurants will be at your fingertips!

The yacht has a fully equipped kitchen (stovetop, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker) along with a gas grill on the back deck overlooking the Ashley River. In addition to the yacht’s grill, you also have access to a full-size propane grill located under a pavilion on the marina’s dock. We supply kitchen necessities, grilling utensils, and a fully stocked spice rack for those who like to cook. There are 4 flat screen TVS with two blu-ray players, and plenty of board games. No fear with children as there is a first class playground in the park adjacent to the boat 200 yards away. The Main Salon has a 40' Samsung Flatscreen if you decide to stay hunkered in for a movie night (the nearest Redbox is about a mile away). Both bedrooms have custom-made memory foam mattresses that feel like a supportive cloud. We also provide amazing down comforters and premium pillows. Take advantage of the boat's central heat and air, or open all the hatches and windows to let the sea breeze flow through. Fresh linens and towels provided. Cable and Wifi included.

We love our yachts and strive to create a wonderful vacation experience for our renters. This yacht is part of the Redfin Charters’ Fleet. RedFin Charters has been seen on Discovery Channel, Bravo and ABC. We were also voted best fishing Charter in Charleston the last two years. Please ask about fishing and sight-seeing charter options including dolphin, shark's teeth digs, eco tours, and sunset cruises on one of our many boats. We are happy to create custom charters to meet your needs. We will gladly offer you a discount if booked at the time of making your reservation. This is a dockside charter and not a short term rental. By booking you are chartering the boat to remain at the dock during your stay. If you would like to add some time at sea we will have one of our licensed captains who is on our insurance to show up and take you for a cruise on this boat or one of our other boats depending on your needs.
We would love to share our favorite place in Charleston with you!

Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Amazing space
This boat was the perfect size for our family of four. We had our own bedrooms and own bathroom except for showering (master only). The staff was very helpful. Sitting up in the captain’s area was my favorite part of the morning and evening…views cannot be matched by any hotel. We are so thankful for this experience!

5/5 Excellent

Described perfectly!!! Amazing view and enjoyed the sunsets and dolphins!!! Well book again!!!

5/5 Excellent

Excellent location
Staying on the boat was wonderful. It was hot and it ended up raining most of the weekend. But, the air conditioner worked great and we were able to enjoy the weekend despite the rain. Dylan was very helpful checking us in. Met some locals on the docks who referred us to the Variety Store for breakfast. This is a great spot for breakfast! The shower worked great. Everything you need is on the boat or Publix is across the street. Had a lovely weekend! Thank you for sharing the boat Joel! We will return!

5/5 Excellent

The Dolce Vita
This yacht is simply AMAZING! We were greeted at the dock by Tanner who was simply a doll! We had great “guests” every morning… a family of 3 dolphins! Don’t hesitate… rent this yacht ASAP!

5/5 Excellent

Great time on the water
We had a great time. Beautiful location with help moving our luggage in and out. We had a few issues but they were taken of immediately. It was small for five women but all in all the setting was worth it.
