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.
