When Charles Fraser developed the first plantation on Hilton Head Island in 1957, he instituted a master land use plan that blended with and accentuated the natural beauty of the Island. The second plantation to be developed for residential purposes was Shipyard Plantation. Much like its Sea Pines predecessor, Shipyard was developed with special consideration given to complementing rather than competing with nature.
There are approximately 2,100 density units in Shipyard Plantation with an unusual combination of resort, residential and commercial interests. Nestled among the trees are twenty-seven holes of golf, twenty tennis courts, a 338 room beachfront hotel, a world-class heath spa, 255 residential lots, approximately 400 interval ownership units and 1,000 condominium units.
Dual access to Shipyard Plantation on Highway #278 and Pope Avenue make Shipyard one of the most convenient locations on the island. Coligny Plaza is less than one mile and there is easy access to restaurants, stores, banks, movie theaters, a local hardware store, and the the post office. Shipyard residents love their convenient location and the simplicity of the plantation.
