Aboard three charter seasons, American captain Taylor Melton and his Brazilian wife Danielle have been stacking up awards at the charter yacht shows in St. Thomas for the last two years now – namely ‘best in show’ in 2019, best themed yacht hop in 2019, 2nd place dessert winner in culinary competition in 2018 and 1st place Save the Blue infused water competition in 2018. The yacht sleeps ten guests, and Danielle is an amazing chef. She also throws an amazing shipboard party, winning awards for it.
With the help of her very nice American husband Taylor and Taylor’s sister, Lizzie, their third crew, Danielle was up in the rigging stringing giant sized monkeys and giant sized palm trees and snakes for the broker yacht hop, when I boarded in November 2019, where the theme for her party was a “Brazilian rain forest.’ Danielle literally transformed the yacht into a scene from ‘Where the Wild Things Are.” She throws herself into things wholeheartedly, and she does them well. She won the yacht theme competition for this party that year. First and foremost a sailor, yet passionate about cooking and presentation, her talents are amazing and legion. She handles gluten free, dairy free, low carb, and paleo diets too. BLUE PEPPER is a happy and efficient ship, and Taylor has new things in store for guests too.
New this year from Captain Taylor is the yacht’s misting system. On a timer, jets of mists stream out of the ceiling on deck at strategic locations. “It goes off every twenty seconds,” he told me. Nice looking, tall and stocky, he has a commanding personality with handsome face, hair in pony tail, and his pretty sister Lizzie is new this year. The three of them wear blue and gray uniforms; they look great.
Another item that’s new this year is their brand new, Durango car in St. Thomas with three sets of seats. They use it to take guests to get fishing gear. They don’t use it to do airport pickups. “It’s got the Blue Pepper logo outside,” Taylor told me.
New in November 2020 are the new foiling boards, now offered to guests, and sea scooters for use with the snorkeling gear. Given the yacht’s spacious fly bridge lounge atop the cockpit, Captain Taylor now offers sunset cruising; in other words, he takes advantage of the sunset hours to move the boat to the next close anchorage.
When asked whether BLUE PEPPER could sail, Taylor said, “We lead the charge up the St. Francis Channel. If anybody creeps up on us from behind, too close for comfort, we put up more sail!” When asked what he likes best about living at sea, he said, “Watching the Man o War (frigate birds) soar high above the boat. They’re fishing. When they see a fish, swimming on the surface of the sea, they drop down suddenly out of the sky with a splash, and you can see it flap away with a fish in its beak.”
This 58 Ipanema catamaran that’s actually 60 feet overall sleeps ten guests in five staterooms with lots of AC, modern decor, and has beautiful teak decks. Spacious, with table along the aft end, the cockpit has L-shaped couch, bed outboard, bar to starboard, and boxes of liquor. The fly bridge has U-shaped couches aft around two coffee tables with baskets of fruit, bar, and settees.
Sleeping ten guests in five staterooms, this is actually a seven cabin layout with seven bathrooms total, Taylor said. Lizzie sleeps in the forepeak with AC, and Taylor and Danielle sleep aft to starboard. All the guest cabins are equal – three to port, two to starboard, all with Queen beds. One has a Pack N Play for a child – beautiful cabins with lots of AC, two aft with windows aft and alongside, letting in lots of natural light. A computer controls the light in the boat, and the two forward cabins are larger with centerline Queen beds, beautifully decorated with seafoam green and orange bedspreads, immaculate cabins with beds facing windows….
