Captain Jim & Lisa Ringland
Your Crew aboard the Catamaran ECLIPSE in the Virgin Islands
U.S. coast Guard Licensed Captain Jim Ringland was born in New Hampshire and attended Northeastern University School of Engineering. He is an avid outdoors-man and while in New Hampshire enjoyed sailing, water-skiing, dirt biking, camping, and hiking. He has won awards for downhill skiing and jumping, marksmanship, swimming, and business management. Jim is also a certified Scuba Master Diver.
Jim owned a successful real estate business and an automobile dealership. He gave it all up to cruise the southern islands on a sailboat and began his career of yacht charters in Florida and the Bahamas. After chartering as a single Captain in the Virgin Islands from 1983 to 1987, he moved back to New England to develop real estate, where he met his wife Lisa.
Born and raised in Keene, New Hampshire, Lisa attended Franklin Pierce College for Business Management and Accounting. Also an outdoor enthusiast, Lisa enjoys sailing, snorkeling, and hiking. She is also a certified scuba diver.
Lisa’s love of cooking began at an early age with a stepfather who attended the New England Culinary Institute and enjoyed cooking side by side with Lisa and her brother while teaching them the art. After college, Lisa began to work for a local CPA and started her own catering service specializing in private cocktail and dinner parties in the clients’ home.
Captain Jim has enjoyed entertaining guests on yacht charters since 1983 as a single Captain, and together with Lisa in the Virgin Islands since the fall of 1990.
Captain Jim and Lisa have welcomed guests together on their yachts Renegade, Southern Comfort, Obsession, Runaway, and now Eclipse. Their knowledge and extensive experience at navigating the waters of the US Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands have set them apart among those offering crewed yacht charters in the Caribbean. This experience, combined with their attention to the care and needs of their chartering guests, assure a fun, relaxing, and memorable Caribbean vacation experience.
