“Experience ‘Southern hospitality at its best’... built in 1844 and situated ‘within walking distance of everything in Charleston.’ Guest rooms are ‘spacious and elegantly appointed’ and follow a traditional Southern design scheme with high ceilings, hickory furnishings, Audubon prints, and four poster beds.” — Conde Nast Traveler

Welcome to the Best of Charleston Hotels - Planters Inn

Wishing Star

One of the most exquisite wooden motor yachts ever made, Wishing Star is an impeccably maintained 84-foot Trumpy yacht offered by Planters Inn for a limited number of special events. Watch the sunset over Charleston's Holy City Skyline while enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at the custom teak table on the aft deck. No other experience comes close to seeing Charleston with this degree of style.

Called the “Rolls-Royce of American motor yachts by The New York Times, Trumpy yachts have been owned by some of American's founding entrepreneurs, including DuPont, Chrysler, Firestone, Guggenheim, and Dodge. Additionally, a Trumpy-designed yacht has served American Presidents dating back to Herbert Hoover. 

Available for private events in Charleston. Operated by a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain.
