Kismet Charters

Pronounced Kizmit,-met, is a custom made Williams 36 Deadrise motor yacht specifically created for private charter groups comfortably up 20 adult passengers. Over the years we have found many groups have 7 to 20 guests and there was no place for them to affordably go on a private yacht in Charleston. We thought about it for years and came up with Kismet. The name Kismet means Fate or Destiny and fits nicely with our sailing yacht Fate.

Perfect for large families with children of all ages, corporate outings for lunch or dinner cruises, birthday celebrations and bachelor / bachelorette parties. Most of these groups have more then 6 guests, Kismet is perfect for them.

A typical 2 hour harbor cruise will pass by Charleston landmarks such as The Battery, Waterfront Park, Historic Castle Pinckney, by the aircraft carrier Yorktown, under the Arthur Ravanel JR Bridge, and out to Fort Sumter where the Civil War Began. You will usually see dolphins playing in the bow wake or feeding in the shallows. If you are an avid bird watcher there are many species to be seen.

If its hot out we can anchor  to swim, float and jump off the boat near a beach in the harbor, we include inflatable floats and rafts for everyone. The Charleston harbor is the cleanest on the East coast with summer water temps reaching 87 degrees.

Complimentary soda and bottled water are provided.  Feel free to BYOB but we recommend catering through Caviar and Bananas, View the menu here Caviar & Bananas Maritime Menu, contact Heather Orman to set up your meal.

We strive to be provide the best charter yacht service in Charleston, already known for our exceptional 5 star service on the sailing yacht Fate we hope you will enjoy Kismet just the same.

If you are contemplating booking a charter but see the forecast is not looking absolutely perfect, book anyways, as it will most likely be a great day. Too many times people wait until the day before to see if the forecast improves and then its too late as others have booked or crew made other plans, last minute charters are difficult to put together. In the rare instance you are the 1% charter that we must cancel, we can either reschedule or give a full refund.
