We are happy to provide you a new yacht from our fleet! Please see our sister property Shook up Shark (property 3558041) for comparable reviews and a 5 star experience!
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 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, 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. Please read our sister property’s reviews (Shook up Shark property 3558041) to learn what other renters had to say about their stay.

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.
We would love to share our favorite place in Charleston with you!
We came to visit Charleston and wanted to experience the beauty of the water with a little more space than a hotel room. This yacht is very comfortable with air conditioning when it's too hot and has an amazing night breeze up top. It's comfortable beds and good water pressure in the shower is perfect for a nice vacation. Joel was available 24hrs for any questions we had but he gave us a good tour on arrival that we didn't need to contact him. I highly recommend this yacht.
What a wonderful experience this was! 2 girlfriends and I picked Joel's yacht back in March and he was ever so informational and was always available for any questions or issues (which there were no issues) for our stay in July - and let me just say, I have lots of questions as this was our first time staying on a yacht. The yacht is beautiful, roomy and right on the bay where dolphins were swimming and crabs a crabbing. It was easy to get to and had all the amenities you could ask for. We only booked for 2 nights and moved to another house after our stay on the Dolce Vita but we truly should have stayed on his yacht the entire time. Was absolutely THE place to be. Joel also offered us a chance to charter one of his smaller boats for a 3 hour tour, which we did and SO GLAD WE DID! This for me was the highlight of my entire trip. Our Captain Patrick scooted us all around and told us history and all kinds of facts about S. Carolina. The breeze from the boat and off the water was so refreshing, really THE thing to do in good ol hot n humid SC! I would definitely recommend staying at the Dolce Vita, if I ever visit SC again I will definitely book Dolce Vita again! Thank you Joel!!!
We booked a short trip not knowing what to expect.
After arriving on the yacht we realized we had made a terrible mistake. ......we didn't book long enough! !
What an amazing experience, my kids said they would be ok if we didnt visit any part of Charleston and just stayed on the yacht.
The wildlife alone was enough to keep us occupied. ...dolphins around and behind the yacht, birds hunting for dinner and of course the amazing sunsets behind us.
The sunset views from the yachts bridge were just amazing. Coffee in the morning or adult beverage at night....even storming in the late in the afternoon, it was my favorite spot on the yacht by far.
We surprised our good friend after she retired from teaching this year for 37 years. She was so overwhelmed and excited to be staying on a Yacht. Everything was wonderful and Joel Lavine is the most courteous host I've ever met. I feel like I've known him all my life. You can't forget him because he looks like Dale Earnhardt Jr. Can't wait to go back again and stay longer. Would recommend to all who love boats and the water.
Our five night stay on Joel's 40' yacht was outstanding. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable as well as more than sufficient for our needs. Joel was very accommodating and helpful. Our expectations, based on the description on the VRBO site and previous reviews, were more than fulfilled. We will definitely return for another visit in the future. We will definitely recommend this property to others planning to visit the Charleston area. Also we enjoyed the Charleston area, Patriot's Point, Fort Sumter, Boone's Plantation and especially Hyman's restaurant.
