This was my first winter away from the Chesapeake and I really enjoyed Charleston. That enjoyment was made possible by the excellent care , maintenance , and service I got from Captains Choice Yachting. Captain Heath was knowledgeable ,responsive , and very detailed in pursuit of all maintenance , but most important there was nothing they could not fix !  His hands on direct approach provided better care and maintenance than I get at my marina at home, and from my dealer!

After over 30 years in the yachting industry it is an absolute pleasure to come along someone like Heath Hackett. I first met Heath at our facility in Newport Beach Ca.  I was immediately impressed with the way Heath took his client through our vessel and looked into every detail as well as wanting to know about every aspect of the build process of the vessel his client was interested in building.

Our experience with Heath during the build process, delivery, offloading of the vessel, and commissioning made it obvious he brings a wide array of experience when it come to running boats, offloading new boats and taking them through the commissioning process.

Anyone considering getting involved with Heath will be impressed with the quality and the reactivity of the services that Heath’s management brings to the table.

Warm thanks to Heath who helped PMY with a lot of flexibility for the resolution of various warranty needs.Your dedication as project manager for the yacht was exemplary & appreciated by all of us here at PMY.

Heath and the team at Captain’s Choice Yachting recently completed approximately $65k in upgrades to our 43’ Tiara including replacement of electronics and IPS drives. CCY has always been extremely responsive as well as diligent in their work and in their preventative maintenance efforts. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone seeking comprehensive yacht management. A+ rating in my book.

We bought a 56-foot Carver yacht this past summer that is being docked at Charleston City Marina.  As this is our first boat larger than a 27-foot bowrider, we needed to hire a licensed captain to teach us how to safely and proficiently drive the yacht, as well as a management company to fully maintain the boat in top-notch operating and detailing condition.  We explored several options in Charleston and ultimately chose CCYM.  To date, CCYM has far exceeded our expectations, as Heath, Jason and their entire team are all highly experienced and dedicated in handling all aspects of yacht management for us.  Furthermore, it is very clear that CCYM takes great pride and pleasure is making sure every stay on our yacht is a pleasant, no hassle experience.  We would highly recommend CCYM to anyone seeking yacht management services in Charleston.

We have a new Hunt 29’ Surfhunter and have used Captain’s Choice Yachting for all aspects of being a boat owner.  They have helped us with learning the electronics, docking and the nuances of the Charleston waters.  In addition, they helped us trouble shoot and are excellent at detailing.  It has been a delightful, rewarding experience which we plan to continue.  They are an amazing, reliable resource that has made our boating experience fun and as carefree as possible.

Zula has finally sold. I didn’t realize that we have had her almost ten years. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you what a pleasure it was to work with you. You guys made boat ownership much less stressful by taking care of all of the stuff I didn’t want to deal with and I thank you for all of your help.



Jason and Heath were great managers to work with. They incorporate new technology products to achieve fast and affective results. I highly recommend their services.
