We are the only company with this policy in the area. Our ultimate goal is for the clients to maximize the time they can enjoy their boat without the headache of worrying about appearance or maintenance.

Company History

Erich Schmidt
Owner

Charleston Yacht is owned and operated by Erich Schmidt – a Wisconsin native – who moved to Charleston, SC in 2006. His goal of offering his expertise to local boat owners and marina management staff came with many sleepless nights. But after a few short seasons, Erich established his company in the area and since 2012 has been operating as Appearance Management. By 2020 the business offered its growing client base more than washing and detailing services. Charleston Yacht was created, to reflect the full breadth of turn-key yacht management Erich and his vendors are able to offer.
