Location, Location, Location!

Located at 1610 Ben Sawyer Blvd, Tolers Cove Marina, Slip D4, Alliance is Charleston’s only sailing charter walking or biking distance to Sullivan’s Island.  Spend a day at the beach followed by a relaxing sunset cruise down the ICW to Charleston Harbor or sail the morning and afternoon away and finish the day on SI at one or more of her Middle Street restaurants or pubs. Either way a perfect end to a perfect day.

Captain Mark Stetler

Over the past eight years Captain Mark Stetler has sailed the East Coast from Maine to Florida as well as the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico and Cuba. Mark’s licenses include 100 ton USCG Masters and he has served honorably in the United States Navy. His recent trips were the single-handed sailing of Alliance to the Abaco Islands for Abaco Race week in the Bahamas. A trip to Key West, Florida for The Conch Republic Cup Regatta and to Varadero and Havana, Cuba. Most of Captain Mark’s experience offshore has been single-handed sailing or short-handed sailing with limited crew. He also offers instruction on how to comfortably handle his 38 foot sailboat as well as the basics of sail and line handling. You will feel completely at ease and have total confidence with the boat and your safety as Alliance meets or exceeds all safety requirements by the United States Coast Guard.  Mark is an active member in CORA and charters and races his boat here in Charleston.
