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.
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.
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!

Area Cruised: Virgin Islands
Overall Rating: 5/5
1. 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
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 !!!!!
