Nennella Sailing offers sunset charters for up to six guests at a time on a classic 1964 Pearson Vanguard 32-foot sloop. Only about 400 of these yachts were built. Nennella is No. 109. When these boats were made, sailors navigated the seas using paper charts, sextants and the stars above.

Step onto the boat -- with her high bow and raised transom, big keel, original wooden boom, and teak-lined cockpit -- and get unstuck in time: for three hours you will be transported, literally and metaphorically, across the waters of Charleston Harbor and through the history of one of the most fascinating cities in the United States.

First settled in 1670, Charleston became the epicenter of rice production during the antebellum period, and the most significant port of entry in North America of the transatlantic slave trade.

Here is where the first shots of the Civil War rang out. Here is where Robert Smalls commandeered the Confederate transport ship CSS Planter and piloted it and its enslaved passengers to freedom. Here is where the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment fought so courageously the Second Battle of Fort Wagner.

The history is rich, troubling, fascinating. Learn about it, as well as the details of contemporary life in Charleston, aboard the classic sailing yacht Nennella!

I earned my captain's license in January 2020 after seven years of regular sailing inshore and offshore, mostly on a 38-foot Ericson sloop. I have been racing sailboats for years and have become proficient in all positions on the boat. I have raced to, in, and from Cuba, and participated in numerous offshore pursuit races closer to home, and too many harbor races to count.

Until 2020, I was an obsessive OPB sailor, but then came an offer I could not refuse: Nennella, parked in the Chesapeake, needed a new home. Now she's mine.

When I'm not sailing, I work at The Post and Courier in Charleston where, these days, I mostly write about race, history and culture. My newspaper experience has resulted in a deep knowledge of Charleston, and of South Carolina generally. Aboard Nennella, I'm happy to share what I know with my guests.

We had an incredible time on Nenella. The hosts were so welcoming and had a lot of knowledge about the Charleston area. We saw the most beautiful sunset over the Cooper River Bridge. It was a peaceful and relaxing experience that we will recommend to any of our friends or family visiting Charleston!

Had a very enjoyable evening cruise on this beautiful sailboat. Adam and Josh were friendly, knowledgeable and tolerated many questions from us amateurs. The boat is an older classic model but don’t let this deter you from scheduling a tour of Charleston harbor. She is classy, outfitted appropriately and moves quickly, you can sit without ducking as they maneuver the boat around the harbor, for a sightseer this is important. They ensure your safety. It was such peaceful and relaxing evening to sail and watch a beautiful sunset and surrounding landmarks. Go ahead and schedule your evening. We plan on going back when we visit Charleston again. Thank you!

Our Saturday night sunset cruise with Adam was one for the books. His responsiveness, hospitality and storytelling made the sailing excursion an all-around top notch experience if you're visiting Charleston. It was our 3rd/4th trip to the city and we were joined by our brother/sister-in-law who have never visited -- so it was such a special experience to share with them and a great way to learn about the city from the water. Adam's boat has plenty of space for a group of 4-6 and there was wine, snacks and plenty of space to use the restroom, enjoy the boat/surroundings and learn about Charleston's history. Book it!

This was amazing! I booked this experience as a birthday gift to my mom and we had such a great time. They were very fun, friendly, and knowledgeable about the Charleston area. I highly recommend booking this as a fun and unique way to tour Charleston!

Adam and his first mate were so incredible. Adam is so friendly and accommodating and his sail boat is like no other - classic and beautiful and perfect for a sail on the harbor or into the deep sea. We took my dad sailing for his birthday, and he has not been able to stop talking about how magical the experience was. From the views of the city at sunset to the peaceful sound of the wind in the sails, this experience is different than anything you could see from a motorboat. The boat fit my 4 family members and myself easily and comfortably in the cockpit, but Adam allowed us to roam all around the ship freely which allowed us to have several different views of the water and city beyond. We are all locals from the Charleston area but had never been sailing on a sailboat in the harbor. Despite having lived in Charleston for 12+ years, Adam was able to teach us so much about Charleston and it’s history that we never knew. He is incredibly knowledgeable and was an amazing captain and guide. I highly, highly recommend this to anyone visiting Charleston or living in the Charleston area.

This was an amazing experience! Adam and Earl are great hosts, they provided necessary safety instructions in a timely manner, historical accounts and fun facts, and were very accommodating to anything we might need. I would definitely book them again in the future. 10/10 would recommend!
