With winding walkways and hanging Spanish Moss Trees, Shipyard is bound to become everyone’s new paradise. We are excited to welcome you and your guests to our community – even if it is for a short time. Shipyard offers flexible bookings via rental companies and property managers. All condos and homes offer unique views and features. Please contact a local Hilton Head Island Rental Company for property listings.
