2 Bedroom, 1 bath Yacht / Boat with living room / kitchen and flybridge
About Dara Liberatore
I has always had a love of the water and boating. Although I did not grow up on the water, and did not come from a family of boaters, I have been drawn to water sports - swimming, scuba diving, boating - both sailing and motor. Prior to having my own yacht, I did a lot of chartering, and often found the charter experiences to be disappointing - usually because the boat was not in great condition. After spending over a year in Charleston working with a client, the idea of having a yacht and having it in Charleston, as well as filling a need in the market for high end yacht charters all came together. So, I started Atlanta Yacht Charters in December 2012, with my first yacht - La Nina. I recently renamed AYC to Low Country Yacht Charters, to better convey the focus and value proposition that this business offers, especially as I start looking to expand. Outside of boating, my core professional focus is strategy and operations management consulting. After graduating from Georgetown University, I spent several years on Active Duty with the Army, both in the Middle East and Germany. After coming back from Germany, I started my consulting career, taking a two year pause to get my MBA from Duke and then going to work with Accenture. I currently work with Alvarez and Marsal, helping companies improve their performance, across multiple industries and functional areas, with a focus on strategy, supply chain, manufacturing, profitability improvement and M&A.I welcome you aboard my yacht - La Nina - and hope you have a wonderful experience!

Great getaway weekend
The boat was excellent .. the people we rented from were awesome. This was my first time renting a boat . I will most definitely do it over and over .. it was a total success and we enjoyed every second of it .
Boat is clean with good AC and very comfortable. It is docked in a convenient location at the marina as well. I did not meet the owner but she was very nice on the phone. I read other reviews and saw a complaint about a smell that made some folks leave. I'm thinking this was just the sewage tank. It is basically a camper on water and the summer heat will kick up a smell from the black tank and that is to be expected. If you have a camper you know what I'm talking about. The owner had a couple of bottles of Campa-Chem in the bathroom so it was never an issue for me. Also the marina staff are very personable. Will stay there again sometime hopefully.
I want to begin with saying that I read all the reviews, including the negative one. There is nothing negative to say about this rental. The boat was clean, the location was ideal, the bath house was clean, beds were comfortable, AC was cold and there was nothing to complain about. The Dara was wonderful for the check in process and offered us many ideas for places to eat and things to do. The marina was very nice. They offered courtesy shuttle during the daytime hours. The showers are clean and large. We did not use the shower on the boat only because it was easier to use the marina showers. I really don’t have a negative thing to say about this rental. Keep in mind that you are staying on a boat and not a luxurious hotel room. I would stay here again when I come back to Charleston.
Different way to stay in Charleston
I was there with my wife and 3 girls and it fit us perfectly. The space is tight in the way you would expect a boat to be. The bathroom was fine but when we needed to get ready to go out at night we would all go the the Marina's facilities which were only about 50 yards away. The AC was cold and the kitchenette was east to use. Overall it was great stay.
Wonderful experience! The boat was clean, comfortable, cool and in a great location. Dara was helpfull!
Davin, it was a pleasure to work with you on this stay! We truly hope you'll join us again in the future. Good luck with your new purchase!!!
