Taylor & Denise Melton

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. ..read more

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!

Reviews for Blue Pepper with Taylor & Denise Melton:

We could not have asked for a better crew! They really surpassed our expectations. They were friendly, always in a good mood, very attentive to our needs. You can really tell Denis and Taylor are good, genuine people that love to take care of others and do so in the best possible way.

Blue Pepper was very comfortable! It had everything we needed. At first, we thought we were going to get on each other’s nerves because of proximity on the boat and being a family of 9 (6 adults and 3 kids). But the way it's built, with the different chilling areas, we did not feel that at all!

Taylor really made sure the boat was clean at ALL times, which is pretty impressive with the 3 kids running around and misplacing stuff the whole day (the adults too haha!). The boat was well ventilated, we had no issues with humidity at all. Favorite aspects of the yacht: the different areas for different occasions and weather (front of the boat while sailing, back when cooler / eating meals, roof in the morning when it's calm, having a coffee), the quality of materials (couches, wooding, appliances, etc.) and the spaciness of it all!

The food was amazing. Denise really put her heart into her cooking and you can taste it. For the most part, every food was prepared from scratch - something we did not think possible on a boat! The presentation was always impeccable, oftentimes adding a quirky touch for the kids, which they enjoyed. As for customization of the menu, Denise really did a good job at sensing what we liked to eat, in addition to dealing with multiple intolerances and special needs in our group (one has an allergy to yeast and black pepper, one is pescatarian, preference for healthy dishes, etc.). We cannot thank her enough for that!

The itinerary we did was perfect, in accordance with our preferences. We told the crew at the beginning of the trip what we liked to do (snorkeling, beach chilling, swimming, sailing) and they figured out what best itinerary to do. They chose well!

Booking with Sailing Directions was done simply and in a timely manner. It was booked last minute on our part and we appreciate all the arrangements that were made for our trip to go seamlessly.

The crew, Taylor and Denise were friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating during the trip.

Yacht Blue Pepper was very comfortable, clean and well ventilated, I really liked layout of the cabins and their comfort.

Food was great! The chef customized the menu to our preferences 100%!

Everybody loved the itinerary of the area that we sailed.

Hope to be back next year and sail with the same great CREW aboard Blue Pepper.
