About Shipyard

You could take any one of Shipyard’s many separate features and have a world-class resort and community. As if having an 830-acre gated oceanfront residential and vacation community on the Southeast coast of Hilton Head Island wasn’t enough, Shipyard also has three challenging nine-hole golf courses, the world famous Van der Meer Tennis Center that was designed by Billie Jean King, and over 2,000 homes and villas.

Shipyard is centrally located on the Southeast coast of Hilton Head Island in a setting ...of tall pines, rustic oaks, and tropical palms. It’s an ideal location for a family home or vacation getaway; a special place to enjoy Hilton Head’s white sandy beaches. The three nine-hole golf courses are spread over some of Hilton Head Island’s most beautiful settings. Most of Shipyard’s homes and villas enjoy breathtaking golf and water views.

And, of course, there’s tennis. Tennis Magazine calls the Van der Meer Tennis Center one of the “5 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts.” It’s true. This facility, designed by tennis great Billie Jean King, has 23 championship courts. You’ll play among the live oaks and beauty of Hilton Head Island just steps from the beach, golf, or oceanfront hotel.

A terrific place to sample Shipyard’s amenities, or perhaps to have friends and family join you on vacation without taking over your beach house, is the Sonesta Resort, located within Shipyard. It’s a terrific place to get pampered in a luxurious four-diamond (AAA) setting, enjoy fine dining, and experience care-free island life.

Shipyard is diversified, an unusual blend of residential and resort community that offers first-class living for those who choose to visit or reside in a scenic and secure oceanfront community. Shipyard is a beautiful alternative whether you come for just a while or forever.
