Moored at the picturesque Shelter Cove Marina, this double deck yacht provides for a stay that is both compact and comfortable. The top deck features a cozy sitting area of white leather, perfect for intimate conversations and a few drinks on the deck. Further up on the bow of the boat, those in want of a tan can get their fix of vitamin D on a cushioned sun pad.
Meanwhile, the lounge area of the lower deck provides a similar leather sofa and a mahogany table that folds down to form a sleeping space for two. More sleeping arrangements are located towards the aft (rear) of the vessel, where you will find a bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Throughout the yacht, you will find multiple TVs and DVD players for your entertainment needs. Heating and air-conditioning can be toggled via the on-board thermostat. It’s rather spaceship like! The yacht’s scaled-down kitchenette comes equipped with a coffee maker, microwave, cups, and a sink. With the hosts declaring the on-board toilet off-limits (lest you be charged with a 25 USD servicing fee), guests are expected to use this sink for washing and brushing teeth instead, as well as the expected washing up chores. Restrooms and showers can be found a few minutes’ walk from the boat.
While this may cause some inconvenience, take it in your stride – it adds to the experience, and even further provides a sense of living a sailor’s life!
Being docked near the heart of Hilton Head gives staying on this yacht its advantages, as experiences such as world-class dining, water sports, and shopping are just mere minutes away from the marina. If you’re staying for the summer, spend your Tuesdays on the boat for a firework show that will light up the evening sky!
