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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am writing this note to say how much we enjoyed our cruise on La Nina. She is a beautiful boat, and perfect for what we had in mind for a break during our two-day company meeting in Charleston. Our manager gave us a choice for a "team building" activity, and one of them was an afternoon trip on your boat. Our decision was almost unanimous, and what a great choice it was. It was sunny and slightly chilly, so we bundled up a little and spent most of the time on the flybridge enjoying the amazing views of Charleston Harbor and downtown, with our wine and h'ordeuvres. Our thoughtful captain had the heat on in the cabin for whenever anyone wanted to go below and warm up. I must say, I have been to Charleston many times, but have never seen the city from the water on "my own yacht". I hope you don't mind the reference, but that's what it felt like! Thank you for our wonderful time. We will certainly be back.

Beautiful Yacht

  • 5 of 5

Clean comfortable stay. Unique experience. Beautiful view of the harbor. Perfect location. We took Uber to downtown several times. Dara was available by cell phone for any questions or concerns. Met quite a few people at the mega dock that were very friendly and helpful.

Unique stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband is very much into boats so we couldn't resist staying on La Nina. It definitely is clean and convenient to downtown Charleston. We walked into town during the day and Ubered in the evening. Most of the time when we got an Uber, it was the minimum charge of $6 and change. The only time it was slightly higher was during surge times. We chose to shower in the private showers in the marina, which are a short walk from our slip. We would sit on the fly bridge with wine to watch the sunsets. It was a very relaxing time.

Dara couldn't have been more attentive to any needs we had. She is an awesome hostess.

Thank you for the pens. I am using them everyday! LOVE & EXCITED to have - I even sent a picture to my siblings;) XO

Great stay onboard

Organized, clean, tidy, easy to find. Easy to figure out boat stuff, even for someone totally new to boat stuff. Would love to stay again if we are in the area.

Sublime time in Charleston

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had never been to Charleston and it was on our "dream list" of things to do. Our dream is also to live on boat for a few years when we retire, so we accomplished two dream goals visiting Charleston. Staying on LaNina is wonderful. It was spotlessly clean and felt brand new new. Although the galley was small, it had all the bells and whistles. The wifi was an added perk and it worked very well. The owner is warm, personable, hospitable, and full of information about the area. She is always available by phone or text if you have any questions or concerns. We absolutely loved the location. It is minutes from downtown Charleston and the marina offers a free shuttle service into town. We also loved meeting all the different people that we met at the marina. We had the opportunity many times over to pick their brains about living on a boat. Great time! And we only have wonderful things to say about our awesome hostess. Would do it again!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Geri & Wayne! The flowers are beautiful...I'm still enjoying them. Thank you for leaving them! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in CHS. ...and that you were able to stay with us while in town. Staying on boats is a hidden gem. You will love your retirement on a boat, and the fun part is finding the right boat for you! I have a great boat broker if you need one. We look forward to seeing you again soon; hopefully, aboard LaNina. But perhaps along the ICW... BIG HUGS!!!

Loved the boat atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Overall property kept up nicely. Few issues with the A.C. in the sleeping area but stayed comfortable since it wasn't very hot. Husband could not stand in most areas of the boat because he is 6'8" but I'm 5'8" and was fine. Sitting on the upper deck in the mornings and evenings was the best, so serene. Would definitely do it again.

Owner's Response: Hey Julia, So glad you had a great time in CHS. Hope you got to use your SUP board around the marina... Thank you for your stay aboard, as well as accommodating our maintenance crews. The AC was fully repaired and back in fighting shape! Luckily in time for the humidity as it returned;) You truly had the best week here! Sorry about your husbands "ducking" issues. That was a first for us, but something I guess guest should think about... I am going to measure this week!
