We booked this yacht for a four night stay in Charleston back in January for March 17th weekend. We received a confirmation from Southern Comfort the following day. We are boaters and we were very excited for this trip. We assumed the other negative reviews on AirBNB were people who were non boaters and “just didn’t get boat life”. Two...

A group of friends and I were so excited to celebrate a special birthday and thought the unique experience of staying on a yacht in Charleston would be amazing. We should have known from the beginning not to book this trip after we initially started our trip search two months in advance and it took three weeks to even get...

I should have known from the very beginning that booking “Southern Comfort” was a terrible idea. We were obviously dealing with unprofessional, incompetent people when it took almost 3 weeks just to complete a simple reservation. Chris McIntire (the manager/owner) pawns everything off on someone named Angela and getting in touch with her proved to be next to impossible. Six...

Me and 6 girlfriends stayed on "Southern Comfort" for our friend's 40th birthday at the end of August 2016. First of all, they advertise as a bed and breakfast and we were told there would be danishes, drinks, water, etc. on the boat. None of that was there. The AC wasn't working well when we got there, the owner told...

Reading the other reviews I am laughing at how old I have suddenly become when I look around and agree that this Yacht would probably be an EPIC place to have a raging Bachlor/ette party - except for the fact that the owners of this place clearly love their boat and don't want it trashed by uncaring, drunken douche/ettes. For...

My wife and I had been married about 4 months, and we went down in January to get out of Charlotte for the weekend, the weather was a little cold, but the boat was so nice. We took advantage of the free taxi into town and went and walked around the shops. The boat was clean and a great spot...

My daughter just turned nine while we were on vacation in Charleston and we stayed on Southern Comfort for her birthday. It's a gorgeous vessel with lots of amenities and a great view! Chris, the owner was very accommodating with our scheduling and booking and promptly answered any questions I had. We had a WONDERFUL time! (My daughter even watched...

We booked the yacht for my friend's bachelorette party for the weekend of July 4th. We've had the reservation for quite awhile and just a few days ago they informed us that we could not use the yacht because the last group caused too much damage to it. We are now stuck, 2 weeks out, trying to find a new...

Let me start by saying that we did truly enjoy our stay on the Southern Comfort, and had plans to return. However, the memory of our trip has been tainted by Chris, the boat owners after charges. Our trip coordinator works in vacation rentals, and had the due diligence to contact Chris is advance to make sure our balance was...

As anyone knows there are charges for "extra guests" when staying at a hotel, bed and breakfast or even a resort. Every now and then someone with try to "sneak" aboard extra guests. The usual excuse is "they only stayed one night" or they just took a shower. In this case the excuse it "we didn't know we would have...

We loved the ship and had a wonderful time until the owner charged our credit card for charges more than a month after our stay and confused us with prior visitors. we had such high hopes for a return stay once our daughter goes to college in Charleston but will know have to find different lodging. Please beware and make...

MotorYachtSoCo, Manager at Motoryacht Southern Comfort, responded to this review

The guests requested additional food items, which were delivered to the guests. The additional items were charged to the mother-in-law's credit card after Alexis T's departure. As with any hotel, outstanding charges not paid at check-out are processed when the account is settled. The $100.00 charge remains in dispute. We encourage everyone to search the reviews on Southern Comfort. Ten...
