Meet Esprit de Joy

"Esprit de Joy" is a French phrase that translates to "spirit of joy". The phrase conveys a sense of enthusiasm, positivity, and happiness.

"Esprit de Joy'' is so much more than a name. It represents the idea that sailing is not just about reaching a destination, it's about the experience of being on the water, feeling the wind in your sails, and enjoying the beauty of Charleston. There is a special “Joy” that comes from sharing the sailing experience with others and creating lasting memories– and that is what we aim to do at Charleston Harbor Sailing.

We hope that your experience aboard Esprit de Joy is filled with fun and adventure--and that you carry those uplifting feelings long after your excursion ends!


Esprit de Joy was built in 2018 in Marion, South Carolina. (We love to support SC businesses!) Joy is a 34-foot Jeanneau 349 Sun Odyssey. She is a high-performance sailboat with outstanding seaworthy qualities and timeless style. You will love the spacious seating area that creates a picturesque experience on the water.

Join us on Esprit de Joy and let the spirit of joy fill your heart as you sail through the stunning waters of Charleston. Book your sailing experience now!

We had a great time sailing with Kyle on a beautiful summer day. It was hot on land, so the breeze on the water was extra welcome. Kyle was attentive and knowledgeable -- great company! The boat is so clean and comfortable. We would definitely go again and would recommend to visitors and locals alike.
