NEWPORT, RI — Nicholson Yachts has teamed with a highly successful boutique-style agency in Charleston, South Carolina, bringing the experience to and from your luxury yacht charter easy and fun!
Front Porch Travel has been hailed by Charlestonians for creating custom holidays for families, couples, seniors, and groups with concierge-type services offered in a smaller, more personal business style. By working together, Nicholson Yachts and Front Porch Travel can tailor safe, efficient, and exciting ways to bring your yacht charter holiday plans to reality — from flights and overnight accommodations to and from the docks of your chartered yacht’s start and finish.
Embarking on your cruising adventure starts with planning. Elizabeth George, CEO and owner of Daniel Island’s Front Porch Travel, is excited about introducing her clients to private luxury yacht charters. Karen Kelly Shea, owner and CEO of Nicholson Yachts, said the team work is advantageous to many clients in the Charleston area.
“We are excited about working with Elizabeth and her company,” Kelly Shea said. “We have already enjoyed treating some of her clients to the wonderful world of yacht charter. They’ve learned to appreciate the yachting lifestyle — awakening to a glorious new island cove in the Caribbean or moored seaside near a quaint European village — every day aboard our yachts. Apart from the five-star amenities, our yachts are filled with fun! From paddleboards, jet skis, kayaks, and snorkeling gear, to tenders that race to fertile fishing grounds, we’re in the business of creating unforgettable adventures for our guests. We look forward to working with other Front Porch Travel clients,” she added.
The team at Nicholson Yachts, based in Newport, Rhode Island, works with national and international travel partners to bring yacht charter experts and travel professionals together. Since 1949, Nicholson has pampered guests aboard motor and sailing yachts (monohulls and multihulls) in destinations all over the world. In 2012, Nicholson opened an office that serves the Charleston and Savannah, Georgia, areas, sharing the joys of yachting with Southerners eager to make the discovery.
With comprehensive brokerage services in yacht sales, charter, charter fleet management, and new builds, Nicholson Yachts enjoys beneficial collaborative relationships with a range of distinguished partners in the hospitality, travel, financial, and marine industries.
