Burgers and sparklers are a fun way to celebrate Independence Day, but we’re all about a July 4th Yacht Party here on Top Shelf!

Looking to spend your long weekend having incredible cuisine, ice cold drinks, more fun than you can imagine, and experiencing five-star service? 

Our yacht offers the perfect venue for a July 4th party, featuring every amenity you can imagine.

Every year, visitors flock to Hilton Head Island for summer celebrations. In fact, owners Jim and Julianne traveled here for decades with their family to enjoy its endless sun, sand and fun. As their children got bigger, their boats got bigger! Hosting friends and family aboard the boat has always been a special part of their lives.

Now that they’ve docked their most special vessel to date, Top Shelf, right here in Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina, the option to host your very own fourth of July yacht party has become a reality.

July 4th Yacht Party Rentals

Let’s elevate your Fourth of July BBQ by hosting it aboard our 80-foot luxury yacht, shall we? Our Executive Chef, Joel, will prepare any menu you desire.

Whether you’re looking for Hilton Head Island’s classic Lowcountry cuisine or your traditional July 4th all-American cuisine, we will curate any menu you like. Prefer sushi, Spanish tapas, or an all-vegan spread? There is nothing Chef Joel cannot do, and he will impress you and your guests beyond measure.

Of course, drinks can be personalized to your liking, with specialty cocktails and your preferred alcohol. Just let us know what brands you want on board and we’ll have them chilled and ready for you.

Chief Stewardess Sara loves to keep a drink in your hand and a plate on your table. How can we make your time aboard most enjoyable? Sara will be sure to accommodate your party however you need!

In addition to the top-notch food and drinks, there are many amenities available while aboard, including water toys and water sports such as jet skiing, wakeboarding, tubing and more. Plus, if you’d like to go somewhere specific, just let Captain Edin know and we’ll tour you around to see anything and everything you wish. 

We offer themes and décor to create a fun, exciting party for you and your guests. 


Hilton Head Island: July 4th Private Yacht Charter

Our private yacht charters will allow you and your guests to take a load off and enjoy being pampered. While we offer many fun amenities, if you prefer a quiet, calming ride, our yacht provides three sundecks with plenty of seating to lay back, relax and read a book or catch some rays. 

Enjoy the picturesque view of dolphins swimming in the distance, sea turtles, blue herons, and more. There is nothing more beautiful than Hilton Head Island’s natural wildlife. The only thing that might give our wildlife a run for its money is our fireworks show. 

Yes, we said shows. That’s because watching from the water guarantees you the best front-row seat to shows across the island, Bluffton and even Beaufort. The sky is alight with color from every angle and you have to see it!


If you are looking for a way to level up your fourth of July celebrations while making lasting memories, we think you deserve a cruise on Top Shelf. 

We wonder, is there a better way to spend time with friends and family than on the water?  

Come spend the Fourth of July in complete luxury, enjoying our water toys and five-star cuisine. Contact Karen, our Cruise Concierge, for all your planning needs:
