Have a different kind of day aboard the "Daychanger". Enjoy your stay in Downtown Wilmington aboard this beautiful 46' Yacht! A short, lovely walk along the river boardwalk takes you to the restaurants, bars, and boutiques of beautiful Downtown Wilmington! Enjoy gorgeous sunsets and peaceful nights on the river.

The space

The whole space is yours to use except the engines, but I'd be happy to show you how they can motor along at sunset!

The boat is located downtown at Sawmillpoint Marina. This accommodation is for people looking for peace and tranquility on a unique and beautiful boat. The setting of the marina is quiet and secluded. In your private slip, you'll have a stunning view of Wilmington Sunsets. FAQ: Q: Bathroom, (AKA the Head). The head, otherwise known as a toilet to land lubbers, is sensitive to what is put in it. It only likes 3 things, #1, #2, and a little TP. Did I mention a "little" TP! A: The boat is equipped with a house sized water heater ensuring you get hot water throughout the boat. Know, however, that you are staying on a boat. Long hot showers are defined differently in the Navy (not as long) 10-15 min.
Q: Heat? AC? A: The boat is equipped with BOTH heat and AC. Set the unit to your desired temperature. Q: What to expect that's different than a hotel? A: It's a boat, it is a unique FUN experience. There may be noises that are different, Pumps, motors, ocean water, etc., and the light switches are in weird places (they are marked) Q: Wave action? A: There is still a small amount of wave action and you'll feel a slight rock from time-to-time if another boat passes or if there is a storm. If there's a bad storm or the wave action gets to a point that your stay is no longer enjoyable, we will work out alternative accommodations for you if possible, but not guaranteed . Your comfort is our top priority. This offer is only if there is abnormal waves due to major storms. 99% of the time the marina is almost totally flat and calm. Q: Handicap accessible? A: No. You'll need to get on the boat which requires a 1-2' step and there are steps on the boat. The deck stairs are steep and you'll need to be sure footed. Q: Space? A: You'll find the layout of the boat extremely spacious and comfortable

Everything was great about our trip! It was a gift for my daughter’s 16th birthday. The sunset cruise was wonderful, our host/captain, Shane was terrific! I highly recommend the sunset cruise on the Cape Fear River.

The Daychanger is a Gamechanger! What an incredible experience, close enough to walk to an idyllic downtown setting with a nice stroll through historic downtown Wilmington and secluded enough on its own private dock to come together for the perfect getaway!! 10/10 would come again!!

We had an awesome time on the boat! Shane was very gracious to us. We brought our dog, Nessie, and she absolutely loved the morning walks on the boardwalk, and hanging out on the boat. We will definitely be back and plan on taking a cruise or a fishing trip with Shane.
