5. DayChanger, Carolina Beach (from USD 1500)

Catch sight of dolphins or birds or watch the sunrise and sunset aboard this luxury yacht named “DayChanger.” It features two rooms, each with a bathroom provided with showers, towels, and free toiletries except for shampoo. Brew some coffee or cook up a meal for yourselves in the galley or relax in the workspace, where you can watch TV. It is highly recommended to limit your luggage to have more room as it can get a bit tight, so less is more when you’re here. Take into consideration that it is the captain’s home, so it’s best that some items in the fridge are left untouched and avoid opening the closets and drawers.
