Capt Joe your skipper, owner and cook joined the US Navy at age 17 and has been Captaining ships ever since. He has run cruise ships, casino boats, worked in the oil industry, and the state run ferries in Louisiana, basically anything that floats he can drive.He moved to the BVI in 1999 and has been running a successful charter business since. Joe possibly runs one of the oldest charter businesses here in the BVI, needless to say his local knowledge and experience is second to none.
Michael is from the spice Island of Grenada, he also has worked on cruise ships (Star Clipper Line, P&O) and has traveled the world, Michael was running a ;local cargo boat when Irma shower her ugly face and ended up on the rocks of North Sound Virgin Gorda. Michael has been with Prime Time for over a year and loves taking the guests out with the tender, to dinner and drinks at night and fishing with the little ones from the back of the boat while at anchor (he does this most nights)
The crew want people to be comfortable, and act like they would at home, we are very laid back. Our Companies Motto has always been "Come as Guests...Leave as Friends..." that still holds true while running Prime Time but we have added a new one for the niche we plan on filling in this industry, "Yachting on a Beer Budget". With that mentality we also want our guests to "embrace the local culture", which is why we only do breakfast and lunches onboard we believe that a yacht charter here in the BVI is so much more than just being on a beautiful boat for 7 days. Your Crew wants you to enjoy the things that "we do", whether that be local BBQ or fish fry, drinks on the beach or just chilling on your own private beach we will make your time with us a memorable one.
Whether you choose to charter the entire yacht or join us for our monthly "cabin only charters" you will not be disappointed. The Yacht is totally comfortable and luxurious, the crews' attention to detail is what is expected in this industry and Joes' home cooked meals are maybe not as good as "Moms", but run a close second :)

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
