The Lazy Livin is a private charter docked in the historic port town of Beaufort, North Carolina. We can comfortably accommodate 6 persons. Our standard charter begins with a cruise down Taylors Creek where you can take in views of luxury yachts docked on the Beaufort waterfront on the port side and Carrot island ponies and maritime forests on the starboard side. Then, we make our way to Shackelford Banks, part of th Cape Lookout National Seashore, where dolphin sightings are always enjoyed. So bring your camera!
If seas permit, we can venture into the Atlantic Ocean via the Beaufort Inlet and cruise along the oceanside of Shakelford Banks to Cape Lookout. Once inside the Bight, keep and eye out for loggerhead turtles!
The Lazy Livin' is a vintage 1971, 43’ Hatteras motor yacht that has been meticulously refurbished with all modern conveniences yet maintains her vintage charm. The yacht is a fine example of early North Carolina yacht building craftsmanship and the Hatteras brand is still a major industry in eastern NC.
The captain, Monty Groff, holds a 100 ton Master Captain’s license and has been boating on the waters of the Crystal Coast for over 20 years. He’s also quick with a joke, but don’t believe all of his tall tales.
If available, our cruises can also be customized for your special occasion, wedding proposals, anniversaries, small wedding. Captain Monty is also an ordained minister.
Let the Lazy Livin’ and crew welcome you aboard for a memorable and intimate coastal experience for your family and friends!
