Yes...there are no bridges across the masonboro inlet. There is however shoaling inside the inlet on the channel way to Wrightsvile Beach. Suggest getting some local info before proceeding on this route. Masonboro is OK in settled weather but is not a "class A" inlet so check inlet conditions before heading out.
Also...be sure to go ALL the way out to the sea buoy before turning.

54 ' is no problem. We came in that way about 4 weeks ago , our boat is 62 ' to the top of the mast and draws 6.5 ' Cams right about going all the way out. We came in at night in a bit of a blow with a delivery captain that was very familiar with the entrance and he seemed tense.

I live in Wrightsville Beach and use Masonboro Inlet all the time. You should have no problem getting in and out. Follow the navigation buoys and you will be in plenty of deep water.
