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!

I wouldn’t stay again

  • 1 of 5

There were all kinds of serious sounds that disturbed our sleep. This yacht is very old and even the heating system is very old and made serious sounds.

I wouldn’t suggest this yacht if you want to have a good vacation.

We enjoyed our stay on "Shook Up Shark", it was close to most everything we wanted to do.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our weekend getaway on "Shook Up Shark". The boat was cozy and clean. We even got to watch our favorite college football teams play. Close to all the shops and restaurants we wanted to visit. We will be back again in the future!!

Unique experience, but not the “luxury” we expected

  • 3 of 5

Shook Up Shark was our first yacht stay, and it had the essentials we needed, such as clean linens and hot water. The check in and out was very simple, and we were even allowed to check in a little early. The dock master was very accommodating. The location of the yacht provided unobstructed views of the harbor, and the TVs and DVD players were a nice touch. The bedroom we did use had a very comfy bed. The location is also only a few minutes from downtown, which was great! As for the actual yacht, it was cozy but not quite as luxurious as the pictures suggest. We were unable to use one bedroom because the AC was vented out of a window that wasn’t properly sealed and there is about a 3-inch opening in the window. We stayed in November, so it was chilly at night. The window opening let in the cold air, so we just had to shut that room off. The fridge was set at its coldest level but didn’t keep items cold. We didn’t really use it or pay much attention until it was time to leave. That’s when we realized it wasn’t cold. I’m a nursing mother and had to toss that weekend’s pumped milk, which is heartbreaking (if you’ve nursed, you know!). If you’re planning on actually using the kitchen, this could make that difficult! Other windows were taped as well and didn’t look professionally done. One of the shower doors kept getting off track and wouldn’t stay closed. It’s a decades old boat showing its age.

Great and so convenient to The Citadel

  • 5 of 5

The ship was fantastic as was Joel (the owner). It was an easy walk to The Citadel which is great for popular football and alumni weekends.

Great stay in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was looking for a unique experience during our recent visit to Charleston. This was everything we hoped for. Perfect location, close to downtown and not far from the beaches. Joel was awesome, he was easy to contact and answer questions. Would definitely stay again.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Everything went off without a hitch. Joel was as attentive as I could have hoped for - I really felt like he was available whenever we needed something. Check in and check out were easy. The boat was clean and comfortable. The marina had friendly people and a laid back atmosphere. Before arriving we were unsure if there would be substantial rocking on the boat, but there was not - particularly at night the water was calm and the boat stable. We visited in the middle of August when it was extremely hot but the boat was sufficiently air conditioned so that we always felt we could escape the heat by climbing below deck. Great experience.
