Overview

About the property

2 Bed + 2 Bath Floating Condo Downtown Charleston, Sc! Need I Say More...

Enjoy the beautiful sunset and watch Charleston's resident pod of dolphins as you stay on our 2 Bedroom/2 bathroom 34' 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 Crosby's Seafood to pick up some fresh fish and shellfish to throw on the grill for a special meal. 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, waffle maker, coffee maker, toaster oven) along with a gas grill on the back deck overlooking the Ashley River. We have access located on the marina dock for larger meals under a covered pavilion. We supply kitchen necessities, grilling utensils, and a fully stocked spice rack for those who like to cook. There are 3 flat screen TVS with two blue ray players, and plenty of board games. No Fear with children as their is a first class playground in the park adjacent to the boat 200 yards away. The Forward Bedroom has a 42' Samsung Flatscreen if you decide to stay hunkered in for a movie night (the nearest Redbox is about a mile away). The main bedroom in the Aft (rear) of the boat has a custom-made memory foam mattress that feels like a supportive cloud. Both bedrooms have amazing down comforters. 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.

Please ask about Sunset or Dolphin Cruise on this boat or one of our amazing fishing charters on any of our boats. We will gladly offer you a discount if booked at the time of making your reservation. Please see 'Detailed Price' on upper right hand corner to see published stay rates for your specific dates.

We would love to share our favorite place in Charleston with you!

Great fun place to stay in Charleston!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our 30th wedding anniversary (Thanks for the Champagne, Joel). Joel and Ethan made it easy and fun. It's a short drive to downtown Charleston with all its history, shopping, and great restaurants. Parking downtown is easy in one of the many garages, but if you're adventurous you can walk the 1.5 miles and save a few buck. The boat has everything you need if you want to explore all day and kick back with a home-cooked dinner and cocktails in the evening. The marina is easily accessible and quiet. Most evenings you can sit on the fantail and enjoy the pelicans and dolphins feeding. Parking is free at a nearby city park or at the marina. Just be sure to check the Riverdogs' schedule (A level minor league team) before you head out in the evening because fans park at the city park, filling it up quickly. You may have to park at the marina. It's also a short drive to the several plantations and gardens on the neighboring islands. We aren't big TV watchers but there's three TVs on the boat, and a nice sound system. There are two staterooms, fore and aft. We stayed in the forward stateroom. Nice bed with reading lights and a hatch if you want to let in the sea breeze, which is pretty much constant. The marina is wasn't busy so we felt as though we had it all to ourselves in the evenings. We are looking forward to staying again, and we recommend the Shook Up Shark without hesitation. One word of warning for those who have never been on a yacht or stayed on one for more than a day. The design of the yacht is excellent, but there are space constraints you won't find in a hotel room or condo. The heads and showers are small, and places to store clothes are at a premium. The boat will sometimes bob or sway within the slip; not enough to make anyone but the most queasy feel bad, but it is noticeable. We found it comforting. There are also noises to get used to, like the air conditioning and the bilge pump. None of that was an issue for us because we expected it and actually found it comforting. Joel is an excellent host and the Shook Up Shark was perfect for us. We're going to come back to Charleston as soon as we can, and stay on this boat or Joel's other boat. For our money you can't beat the experience. Simply a great place to stay.

Cozy yacht impeccable views on Ashley River

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. It was a really cozy yacht. Well furnished and very clean. Comfortable beds I slept like a baby. The slight rocking motion might have had something to do with. Joel the owner was extremely helpful, and easy to work with. He always got back to us promptly. I recommend this property to anyone. Perfect for a couple getaway.

Quite and comfortable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a weekend for our anniversary. We love visiting Charleston, and wanted to stay somewhere different. The yacht was very clean and comfortable, and in a secured marina. We enjoyed watching the sunset and the incredible view. My husband and I loved the peace and quite, and being so close to the restaurants and activities in Charleston. We didn't cook, but the kitchen has everything you need to do so. The cabin has heating and air, so we were able to keep it at a comfortable temperature. The beds were very cozy, and we enjoyed relaxing and watching some TV before we went to sleep. We didn't have to worry about noisy neighbors or housekeeping knocking on our door. Although we didn't need anything, we knew Joel was just a phone call away. We are even planning on returning next year. My husband and I highly recommend the Shook Up Shark for a getaway.

Thank you for the champagne, Joel.

Unique accommodation, not the normal hotel.

The boat was in a good location, close to downtown. It was a unique experience. It was well maintained and clean. Plenty of parking.
