A 191-foot yacht built in 2010 and refitted in subsequent years, Skyfall docks at Wrightsville Beach at the behest of Greensboro-based real estate developer and Skyfall owner Roy Carroll, who vacations in the New Hanover County beach town.

Skyfall, valued at more than $33 million, can be rented for a rate that starts at $290,000 per week.

The vessel built by Trinity Yachts has more than 3,000 square feet of exterior dock space, and on her sundeck there’s a  Jacuzzi, a splash pool and a basketball net. Six staterooms accommodate 12 guests.

“You and the captain set your itinerary. You’re not on a schedule,” said Carroll, who is planning to build a major mixed-use project on Military Cutoff Road in Wilmington. “You get to decide what you want to do, where you want to go and exactly what you want to eat.”

In a 2021 Greater Wilmington Business Journal story, Carroll said, “It is expensive vacationing, but it is the ultimate luxury in vacations.”
