Genuine hospitality and contagious enthusiasm for the islands are what Margaret and Taylor are all about. Having sailed their 30’ monohull extensively from Maine to Grenada and lived aboard while exploring the Virgin Islands, they know how to turn the dream of a sailing adventure into a reality.

Taylor grew up in Central Virginia, splitting summers between living on the lake driving ski boats and traveling in the family RV to every state with a road to it. After earning a business degree from Appalachian State University with honors, Taylor started pursuing his passion for living. Playing in a touring rock band transitioned to trekking in South America, which led to bartending in Breckenridge, Colorado. After a few years of the ski bum life, the dream of setting off for points unknown in a sailboat started to form. He jumped head first into sailing, taking American Sailing Association courses, walking the docks for crew work, completing safety certifications, and before he knew it he was working day sailing charters in the Virgin Islands.

Margaret also hails from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and has sailboat chartering in her blood from her Dad, who captained classic windjammers in Maine. She began traveling internationally early on and developed a love for traditional recipes and an appreciation for the way a good meal can bring families and friends together. An ambitious explorer as well, Margaret attended the National Outdoor Leadership school before earning her bachelors degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder. She is a certified yoga teacher and recently returned to where she received her training in India, joining a month long motorcycle expedition over the highest drivable passes in the Himalayas.

Despite being raised less than an hour apart and sharing so many passions, the two didn’t meet until they were both living in Colorado. Shortly there after their dream of sailing the islands took off and they moved to Saint John where they worked day sailing charters and eco kayak tours. After that season they bought their sailboat and began cruising full time, meshing into a dynamic team afloat. Having guests aboard ignited their passion for sharing the good life with others and providing a truly bespoke charter.
Margaret and Taylor offer a vacation experience informed by years of local knowledge and a menu of their favorite island recipes personally gathered from the Bahamas to Grenada. From diving for conch that are later served up as fritters to helping someone catch their first wave surfing, providing lasting memories in one of the world’s most special places is something this team never tires of. Together they bring personalized service and engagement, with true authenticity and passion for sharing the island experience with others.

How would you qualify skipper:
Taylor was a wonderful captain. His ability to just drop off the boat with our divers was a huge plus. He listened carefully to what each of our group wanted to get out of the trip and he made sure everyone’s goals were met - “100%:-)” - by the end of the week.

5

How would you qualify rest of the crew:
Margaret is so thoughtful about the menu. We had several special diet accommodations and she managed to create a menu that met everyone’s dietary needs while creating meals that were delicious for the entire group. At the end of the week, we all had a favorite from the menu and everyone’s pick was different! The fresh, locally sourced ingredients made it feel like we were eating in a different local restaurant every day.

4

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):
Two of the three bedrooms/heads were small. The master was very large.

5

5

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board:
We enjoyed the lily pad, paddle boards, and kayak. Having on-board scuba was a huge asset. Taylor was able to take care of the divers while Margaret went in the water with the snorkelers. They both worked to make sure we saw sea turtles, stingrays, and great corals.

5

How would you qualify the food and drinks:
Outstanding - both Taylor and Margaret have been bartenders so they mixed great onboard concoctions. They even did blender drinks despite the extra work. And I can’t say enough about the menu. Margaret put a lot of time and energy in the food and for our group of “foodies” we enjoyed 3 amazing meals a day with presentation like you would enjoy in a 5 star restaurant.

5

How would you qualify the entire experience of your trip:
This was a truly amazing experience. Enjoying the beauty of the Virgin Islands from the sea is an unmatched experience. Our crew made the biggest difference in our trip. They worked so hard to make our trip perfect. I can’t give a better recommendation for Taylor and Margaret!

How would you qualify skipper:
Taylor Smith was accommodating, knowledgeable, courteous, humorous and an excellent “man in charge”. I would sail with him over and over again!

Margaret was knowledgeable and an all around fun person to be with. The food she prepared, daily, was exceptional!

4

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):
This was my first sailing adventure and took several days to acclimate to the small living space. Taylor kept the entire space remarkably clean. If I had to do over, I would opt for more personal space with more power.
