We present you Denise and Taylor Melton, this interesting couple married in St. John February 8th, 2017 and will be the crew responsible for your adventure aboard Sailing Yacht Blue Pepper. They will work hard to make sure your experience in the Islands will be something you will cherish forever.

CHEF:
Denise Melton, an award-winning chef at the Virgin Islands Yacht Show Culinary Competition, was born in Brazil where she bought her first sailboat at seventeen. Five years later she moved to Argentina and worked several years for an important family as a captain for a 60’ sailing yacht and a 70’ power yacht. She also accomplished dozens of deliveries between Buenos Aires and Rio De Janeiro. Crossing the Atlantic twice in her personal boat, her blue water experience is unrivaled. Four years ago, she moved to St. Maarten to be the Captain to an 87’ powerboat, and a year after that she decided to pursue her other passion, to become a professional chef. Now Denise has decided to join Taylor in providing the best culinary experience, aboard one of the most luxurious charter yachts available in the Virgin Islands, Blue Pepper. Her cuisine has the influence from Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Brasil. She loves the Mediterranean food and in the last few years has grown accustomed to a Caribbean flair. She specializes in personalizing any menu to a guest’s taste, and has an impressive knowledge to accommodate gluten free, dairy free, low carb, and paleo diets etc. She is fascinated with the art of presentation, a great host, and will ensure that your time spent aboard will be filled with flavor, aroma, and fresh experiences.

CAPTAIN:
Taylor Melton was born in Fort Worth Texas, he is a persevering, and enthusiastic individual. When travelling with his family through Alabama when he was 14 years old, Taylor ran across a CD in a small gas station bearing a cover art of beautiful white sands, turquoise waters, and a harbor filled with sailboats of all kinds. This CD was one of Jimmy Buffett’s live albums recorded right here in the Caribbean. After listening for several days, young Taylor told his parents that he would be a Captain in the Virgin Islands one day, they laughed, but after years of hard work, here he is. Taylor worked as a bartender for several years and learned the beauty of sailing in his free time, and finally with tickets in hand, he made it to the islands to begin his life on the ocean. He worked as a mate for several boats before completing his school to become a captain. From there he went on to deliver sailing yachts from the Virgin Islands to New York and Bermuda in the open ocean. For two years he drove powerboats all around the US and British Virgin Islands, making over 500 day charters. This gave Taylor an amazing insight to every bay and unique place and his curiosity about the local culture helped him learn even more about our Virgin Island Waters. Captain Taylor has a lot of rich history he enjoys sharing with his guests. Taylor met his wife while sailing the Virgin Islands shortly after purchasing his own sailboat. Sailing Vessel Isola Bella has brought Captain Taylor a lot of personal adventure and experience in the Caribbean, and now he shares the beautiful boat as a home with his wife, Denise. In the last couple of years he has been the Captain and owner of a power cat and teamed up with his wife for several term charters. Taylor’s service in fine dining and bartending compliments Denise’s accomplishments in the galley. Together they form an invincible crew. The safety and security on board will always be the first priority of your Captain, while fun and excitement never get left in the wake.

STEWARDESS:
Elizabeth is a creative and hard-working person who has always been great with people. We could describe her as someone
who actively wants to help people enjoy their experience wherever they may be. On board her job is to maintain a
perfectly clean boat, be sure that the glasses are always full and to help Denise excel in the kitchen.
Liz is Captain Taylor’s sister and has come to complete the Melton family crew. Liz and Taylor were super close when they
were kids. Taylor always used to bring his little sister for boat excursions on the lake and go for secret donut trips at 5am,
they are adventure partners for life.
After 7 years of a deep dedication for her family, her son Cade and her husband Cole agreed that mom deserved an
opportunity to grow and gain new skills on board Blue Pepper doing this wonderful work making beautiful memories in
peoples lives! Lizzy’s husband will take care of their house and their son, and Lizzy will go to work hard on Blue Pepper
making sure that even the smallest details will be perfect during your stay.
She worked as a housekeeper, sales representative and a Primrose early education teacher. All this work experience came
to complete the Blue Pepper team. Lizzy is an obsessive and organized person with professional and personal experience
with kids and an infinite patience with people. Nothing left to say but that the vibrant energy and lovely way that she does
everything will make you feel special and relaxed, as a dream vacation should be!

Best. Crew. Ever! Their every waking moment was spent making sure we had as perfect a vacation as it is possible to have. The strict and unusual dietary requirements of two of us were not a problem; Denise’s food was imaginative and delicious. Everything was made fresh, followed the dietary requirements, and was of 5-star restaurant caliber... McXXXXX Family

Captain/Chef Denise Made Our Honeymoon Amazing! My wife and I are just getting back and settled from our honeymoon with Denise on Bella Vita and I just wanted to reach out and let you know how absolutely AMAZING it was. Denise is not only an amazing Captain but she is also an insanely good chef! We could not believe the food that she was preparing for us, how good it was and all done in a small kitchen! Before my wife and I left, I realized that we were really jumping into this blind and neither of us really knew what it was going to be like but Denise blew us away and we could not have pictured it any better. We are really hoping on booking her and the boat again at some point so I sure hope you hold onto her! Thanks for the perfect trip! Jason & Kaitland

Awesome trip, our very first Virgin Islands charter, this was excellent! Great food, drinks, and amazing service! Steve and Cheryl
Amazing charter
I wanted to reach out to congratulate you on the amazing crew you have, with Taylor and Denise, on your catamaran Blue Pepper. My family and I spent last week aboard and had the most amazing experience. I have done three other prior charters and none equates to last week. The catamaran is beautiful and has an excellent distribution of space to accommodate all 10 guests comfortably. On top of that, Taylor and Denise are definitely the best crew. They spent every second of the week making sure everything was perfect and they did so with great smiles at all times. Denise cooking is just amazing and she was so versatile in accommodating preferences. I would chose her cooking over any restaurant. Taylor was great about facilitating all activities onboard and on the islands and planned a perfect route for our trip. I don’t think they ever took a break from making sure the catamaran was just impeccable and everything running smoothly. The two of them together make a great team and made everyone of us feel so pampered as they took care of every single detail to make our vacation just perfect at all times. Thank you! K.P.

February 16-20, 2020
This was my 3rd charter in the BVI's and by far the BP was the most comfortable and clean catamaran we have encountered. The crew of the BP (Taylor, Denise & Liz) could not have been more friendly and accommodating. From the moment we boarded till the last second of our charter. They were nothing short of AMAZING. For real.. The food on the BP was as advertised. Fresh, Fresh and more Fresh. The from the ingredients that went into each and every meal to the love that you feel from Denise's preparation and presentations. Could not have been more satisfied. They literally catered to each and everyones individual food needs.. There were four adults, three teenagers and one 5 year old. Taylor knows his way around the USVI and the BVI's we hit all the spots that we wanted and a few hidden gems! To sum up our 2020 BVI adventure, BEST TRIP EVER...The crew is what made the BP what is was.. BP is just the name on a boat...The heart and soul of the BP is and will always be its crew. Already booked BP for 2021 !!!!! Michale S. & Family

Was the crew friendly and accommodating? They were beyond accommodating. They took care of our needs before we even recognized we had a need. One example...we were going on a hike and a Captain Taylor saw that one girl wasn’t wearing socks with her shoes....so he went and got a pair of socks because he knew she would need them. He was right...she would have gotten awful blisters without them. 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? The boat was gorgeous. Immaculately cared for. Looks new! 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? AC worked great! 4. Was the food good and well presented? The food was insane! It was like art...beautifully plated and the way Chef Denise describes the meal made your mouth water! It tastes even better!! Beyond perfect!! 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Captain Taylor did a great job of keeping the views interesting and different even though the BVI was closed. 6. Additional comments on your charter? Captain Taylor, Chef Denise and First Mate Lizz made the trip the best trip of our life. They are eager to serve you. Patient with you and genuine. I cannot imagine any crew ever able to match their service.

We present you Denise and Taylor Melton, this interesting couple married in St. John February 8th, 2017 and will be the crew responsible for your adventure aboard Sailing Yacht Blue Pepper. They will work hard to make sure your experience in the Islands will be something you will cherish forever.

CHEF:
Denise Melton, an award-winning chef at the Virgin Islands Yacht Show Culinary Competition, was born in Brazil where she bought her first sailboat at seventeen. Five years later she moved to Argentina and worked several years for an important family as a captain for a 60’ sailing yacht and a 70’ power yacht. She also accomplished dozens of deliveries between Buenos Aires and Rio De Janeiro. Crossing the Atlantic twice in her personal boat, her blue water experience is unrivaled. Four years ago, she moved to St. Maarten to be the Captain to an 87’ powerboat, and a year after that she decided to pursue her other passion, to become a professional chef. Now Denise has decided to join Taylor in providing the best culinary experience, aboard one of the most luxurious charter yachts available in the Virgin Islands, Blue Pepper. Her cuisine has the influence from Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Brasil. She loves the Mediterranean food and in the last few years has grown accustomed to a Caribbean flair. She specializes in personalizing any menu to a guest’s taste, and has an impressive knowledge to accommodate gluten free, dairy free, low carb, and paleo diets etc. She is fascinated with the art of presentation, a great host, and will ensure that your time spent aboard will be filled with flavor, aroma, and fresh experiences.

CAPTAIN:
Taylor Melton was born in Fort Worth Texas, he is a persevering, and enthusiastic individual. When travelling with his family through Alabama when he was 14 years old, Taylor ran across a CD in a small gas station bearing a cover art of beautiful white sands, turquoise waters, and a harbor filled with sailboats of all kinds. This CD was one of Jimmy Buffett’s live albums recorded right here in the Caribbean. After listening for several days, young Taylor told his parents that he would be a Captain in the Virgin Islands one day, they laughed, but after years of hard work, here he is. Taylor worked as a bartender for several years and learned the beauty of sailing in his free time, and finally with tickets in hand, he made it to the islands to begin his life on the ocean. He worked as a mate for several boats before completing his school to become a captain. From there he went on to deliver sailing yachts from the Virgin Islands to New York and Bermuda in the open ocean. For two years he drove powerboats all around the US and British Virgin Islands, making over 500 day charters. This gave Taylor an amazing insight to every bay and unique place and his curiosity about the local culture helped him learn even more about our Virgin Island Waters. Captain Taylor has a lot of rich history he enjoys sharing with his guests. Taylor met his wife while sailing the Virgin Islands shortly after purchasing his own sailboat. Sailing Vessel Isola Bella has brought Captain Taylor a lot of personal adventure and experience in the Caribbean, and now he shares the beautiful boat as a home with his wife, Denise. In the last couple of years he has been the Captain and owner of a power cat and teamed up with his wife for several term charters. Taylor’s service in fine dining and bartending compliments Denise’s accomplishments in the galley. Together they form an invincible crew. The safety and security on board will always be the first priority of your Captain, while fun and excitement never get left in the wake.

STEWARDESS:
Elizabeth is a creative and hard-working person who has always been great with people. We could describe her as someone
who actively wants to help people enjoy their experience wherever they may be. On board her job is to maintain a
perfectly clean boat, be sure that the glasses are always full and to help Denise excel in the kitchen.
Liz is Captain Taylor’s sister and has come to complete the Melton family crew. Liz and Taylor were super close when they
were kids. Taylor always used to bring his little sister for boat excursions on the lake and go for secret donut trips at 5am,
they are adventure partners for life.
After 7 years of a deep dedication for her family, her son Cade and her husband Cole agreed that mom deserved an
opportunity to grow and gain new skills on board Blue Pepper doing this wonderful work making beautiful memories in
peoples lives! Lizzy’s husband will take care of their house and their son, and Lizzy will go to work hard on Blue Pepper
making sure that even the smallest details will be perfect during your stay.
She worked as a housekeeper, sales representative and a Primrose early education teacher. All this work experience came
to complete the Blue Pepper team. Lizzy is an obsessive and organized person with professional and personal experience
with kids and an infinite patience with people. Nothing left to say but that the vibrant energy and lovely way that she does
everything will make you feel special and relaxed, as a dream vacation should be!

Best. Crew. Ever! Their every waking moment was spent making sure we had as perfect a vacation as it is possible to have. The strict and unusual dietary requirements of two of us were not a problem; Denise’s food was imaginative and delicious. Everything was made fresh, followed the dietary requirements, and was of 5-star restaurant caliber... McXXXXX Family

Captain/Chef Denise Made Our Honeymoon Amazing! My wife and I are just getting back and settled from our honeymoon with Denise on Bella Vita and I just wanted to reach out and let you know how absolutely AMAZING it was. Denise is not only an amazing Captain but she is also an insanely good chef! We could not believe the food that she was preparing for us, how good it was and all done in a small kitchen! Before my wife and I left, I realized that we were really jumping into this blind and neither of us really knew what it was going to be like but Denise blew us away and we could not have pictured it any better. We are really hoping on booking her and the boat again at some point so I sure hope you hold onto her! Thanks for the perfect trip! Jason & Kaitland

Awesome trip, our very first Virgin Islands charter, this was excellent! Great food, drinks, and amazing service! Steve and Cheryl
Amazing charter
I wanted to reach out to congratulate you on the amazing crew you have, with Taylor and Denise, on your catamaran Blue Pepper. My family and I spent last week aboard and had the most amazing experience. I have done three other prior charters and none equates to last week. The catamaran is beautiful and has an excellent distribution of space to accommodate all 10 guests comfortably. On top of that, Taylor and Denise are definitely the best crew. They spent every second of the week making sure everything was perfect and they did so with great smiles at all times. Denise cooking is just amazing and she was so versatile in accommodating preferences. I would chose her cooking over any restaurant. Taylor was great about facilitating all activities onboard and on the islands and planned a perfect route for our trip. I don’t think they ever took a break from making sure the catamaran was just impeccable and everything running smoothly. The two of them together make a great team and made everyone of us feel so pampered as they took care of every single detail to make our vacation just perfect at all times. Thank you! K.P.

February 16-20, 2020
This was my 3rd charter in the BVI's and by far the BP was the most comfortable and clean catamaran we have encountered. The crew of the BP (Taylor, Denise & Liz) could not have been more friendly and accommodating. From the moment we boarded till the last second of our charter. They were nothing short of AMAZING. For real.. The food on the BP was as advertised. Fresh, Fresh and more Fresh. The from the ingredients that went into each and every meal to the love that you feel from Denise's preparation and presentations. Could not have been more satisfied. They literally catered to each and everyones individual food needs.. There were four adults, three teenagers and one 5 year old. Taylor knows his way around the USVI and the BVI's we hit all the spots that we wanted and a few hidden gems! To sum up our 2020 BVI adventure, BEST TRIP EVER...The crew is what made the BP what is was.. BP is just the name on a boat...The heart and soul of the BP is and will always be its crew. Already booked BP for 2021 !!!!! Michale S. & Family
USVI Charter July 2020

Was the crew friendly and accommodating? They were beyond accommodating. They took care of our needs before we even recognized we had a need. One example...we were going on a hike and a Captain Taylor saw that one girl wasn’t wearing socks with her shoes....so he went and got a pair of socks because he knew she would need them. He was right...she would have gotten awful blisters without them. 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? The boat was gorgeous. Immaculately cared for. Looks new! 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? AC worked great! 4. Was the food good and well presented? The food was insane! It was like art...beautifully plated and the way Chef Denise describes the meal made your mouth water! It tastes even better!! Beyond perfect!! 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Captain Taylor did a great job of keeping the views interesting and different even though the BVI was closed. 6. Additional comments on your charter? Captain Taylor, Chef Denise and First Mate Lizz made the trip the best trip of our life. They are eager to serve you. Patient with you and genuine. I cannot imagine any crew ever able to match their service.
