Yachts For Sale In Beaufort

Voted and rated by numerous media as one of the South’s Best Small Towns for its historical interest and natural beauty, Beaufort has so much to offer visitors to this amazing city in the Sea Islands of South Carolina. Although both Spanish and French attempted to establish colonies in the 1500s – mid 1600s, it was the English that successfully settled on St Helena Island and Port Royal Island in the late 1600s and founded Beaufort in 1711. The lowcountry plantation economy that brought success and wealth to Beaufort and the Sea Islands, was based on rice and cotton, a variety that only grew on the islands and was known as Sea Isle Cotton, with extra-long silky fibers. Today, Beaufort offers a bevy of boating opportunities along the South Carolina coast.

Beaufort’s rich history includes the Civil War and Reconstruction Period of 1861-1893, that birthed the Gullah culture as freed slaves transitioned their lives into a free America. Beaufort County was the first place in the south where descendants of former slaves who remained in the area, were able to claim land from abandoned plantations and open businesses. Over the years, they developed into private communities along the Sea Islands, maintaining their unique heritage and culture, expressed in storytelling, cuisine, crafts, music and other traditions derived from west and central African ethnic origins. Learn more of the Gullah/Geechee history at the 50-acre Penn Center on St Helena Island, one of four sites of the Reconstruction Era National Monument, a National Park. The Penn Center was originally Penn School, founded in 1862 as one of the first schools for former slaves. The Gullah Grub Restaurant features authentic, organically grown, seasonal farm-to-table fare. The restaurant’s owners grow their own rice, that had been the first crop to bring wealth to the South Carolina lowcountry area.
