Green Initiative

Nutmeg offers containers for drinking water for refill from desalinated or large water bottle containers. The yacht does not buy small plastic water bottles. The yacht uses cloth napkins. We encourage our clients to open their hatches at night to avoid using the A/C. LED ceiling lights in salon and galley to reduce power requirements and heat output. We use biodegradable cleaning products. We limit packaging waste by purchasing in bulk.

Meet the Crew

Crew photo
John & Maxine White

Max and Whitey (Maxine and John White) have a long history as one of the most successful couples in the charter industry. Whitey is originally from Perth, Australia and Max from Utah but they have made ‘the Caribbean’ their home. After arriving on their cruising boat to get married at Cane Garden Bay, Tortola, they began their chartering career. They have hosted guests on large catamarans in the Virgin Islands, down the island chain and even a few years of ‘adventure chartering’ in the San Blas Islands of Panama and in Belize. The most recent years have been on a private yacht exploring the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and Belize. They are excited to now be returning to the beautiful British Virgin Islands where chartering began for them.

CAPTAIN John 'Whitey' Whitey takes the helm of Nutmeg as he sails you around the islands. He knows all of the anchorages intimately and will customize the itinerary to the guest preferences. Whitey's primary goal is to make sure his guests on Nutmeg have the best vacation in their life. He holds a RYA Yacht Master Ocean license and has been a PADI Dive Instructor for 24 years. Whitey has a passion for teaching, whether it be snorkeling or scuba diving, or introducing people to anything regarding life on a boat. At night you can expect more entertainment with interesting ‘Whitey stories’ of his many travels while being served his famous cocktails...read more

CHEF Maxine White

Originally from the land-locked state of Utah, Maxine had never been sailing until she met Whitey in San Francisco. She quickly took to it and before long she quit her job in the San Francisco Financial District to sail away under the Golden Gate Bridge with Whitey. Many sea miles later they were married at Cane Garden Bay, Tortola. Max has since completed over 45,000 blue water miles.

First Mate and Chef Max brings her years of extensive traveling to inspire her meal preparation on Nutmeg. Max likes to use local and fresh ingredients when she prepares her culinary specialties. In past charter boat shows, she has won awards with her Tamarind Duck! Max is also an avid diver as a PADI Dive Master for over 20 years. She especially likes to show guests all the special spots in the Virgin Islands.

While sailing on a Nutmeg charter you can expect to have a specialized and relaxing sailing vacation!
