Captain Taylor Smith
Taylor grew up in Central Virginia, splitting summers between driving ski boats on the lake 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 pursued a passion for living outside of the box. Playing in a touring rock band transitioned to extended 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 and within a short period he was a licensed captain living aboard and traveling on his own boat.

Captain Mark Duncan
Having sailed since a teenager and fished and hiked from a young age, I have a passion for the outdoor life. Always happy, on, next to or in the water!
After years of operations management in the service industry, I embarked on a world tour for 12 months with Sally. We travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia. My yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean from the Bahamas to the BVI’S and the Windward Islands, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters, and a Transatlantic crossing. On returning from travelling, I turned the leisure activity I love into a lifestyle. After a season as Flotilla Skipper in Croatia, I have now captained various catamarans and mono-hulls, both as employed crew and for 10 years as an Owner Operator. My passion for the ocean and its wildlife, coupled with an extensive knowledge of the Caribbean and particularly The B.V.I. ensures my guests get a thoroughly immersive experience of the islands. I pride myself in giving charter guests an amazing time.
Chef/Mate Sally Duncan
I have always loved sailing. I was put in a boat before I could walk, and grew up crewing and helming various dinghies and keelboats, at racing events with family and friends. In more recent years, I have learnt the joys of larger yacht sailing with Mark at a number of destinations throughout the world, and running our own charter catamaran in the BVI for 10 seasons.
My passion for travel, sailing, cuisine and these beautiful islands and their people, ensures my guests always have a ‘Vacation of a Lifetime’.
Cooking with my Mum from an early age, I graduated in Food Sciences at university. Then developed my skills hosting dinner parties for friends and attending chef courses in the UK.
Guests often comment on how varied my cuisine styles and flavours are.
Protecting our fragile environment is also a constant pursuit, so that all the wonderful nature we have is preserved for the future.
In running various charter yachts in the Caribbean, I have found my ‘niche’. I excel at ensuring my charter guests want to come back again and again, which they do!!
Three times winners of yachting industry awards, we gel as a team. Guests comment on our attention to detail whilst being fun at the same time. We plan every charter to our guests specific needs, ensuring you have a bespoke vacation.
With 20 years’ experience and over 300 charters under our belts, we know how to give a great charter.
Our extensive knowledge of the islands and love of nature helps us share interesting stories and facts about them.
We love sailing, snorkeling and hiking together and love to travel extensively ourselves to many different countries. Enjoying great service ourselves we know how to give great service.
We look forward to being your hosts and sharing our passion for this place, where the sky kisses the sand and the sand kisses the ocean.

This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. 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.
