Company looks to open boatel in Port Royal


A boat company is looking at another town in the lowcountry, still hoping to create a boatel after one city turned them down.

Andrae Boat Company owns the Charlestonian, a 93 foot yacht and now wants to turn it into a boatel.

The company took their proposal to Beaufort, hoping to operate out of the Beaufort Downtown Marina, but Beaufort shot down the idea last month.

Talks with Port Royal are in the early stages but town manager Van Willis says he doesn't know of an ordinance that would prevent the operation.
