Capt. Stuart Mackie and Chef/Mate Hannah Angel
Stu and Hannah have been working on charter boats for over 5 years in the BVI and Bahamas. They have a passion for hospitality and strive to do their best to give their guests a vacation of a lifetime.
Stu and Hannah met in 2013 in their home town of Southampton in the UK. Stu was working on a mega yacht, and during his second season aboard, whilst on a period of leave, he met Hannah. They decided to pursue a career together, and after a season in Turkey, came to the British Virgin Islands to work on charter catamarans.
Having grown up in Scotland, a stone’s throw from the sea, Stu has loved being on and around the water since childhood. In 2011 he decided to pursue his dream of sailing. After training for a year including a Trans-Atlantic, he left the UK to work on 250 ft mega yacht. Stu loves to share his knowledge of yachting and the local marine life. He has a passion for free diving, spear fishing, scuba diving, game fishing and all water sports.
Hannah has worked in multiple areas of hospitality during her career and is a graduate of the award winning Ashburton School of Cookery in the UK, where she worked with many talented chefs. She loves creating fun, fresh foods that look and taste amazing. Hannah has a bubbly personality and loves the social side of her work. She adores meeting new people and will make you laugh with her funny stories.
Stu and Hannah are an easy going couple that will focus your charter around your ideas. They want you to do the things you enjoy most at your preferred pace - relaxed or what's next. Whether it is your first or fifth time to the BVI or the Bahamas, Stu and Hannah will help you explore the unique locations from the highlights to the lesser known anchorages and private coves.

To Future Guests,
This was our first charter cruise. Together with another couple and their child, my wife Patti and I enjoyed a wonderful experience on the Ohana power cat yacht. The vessel was exceptionally comfortable and well appointed. The ride was always smooth - even in high seas. The best part of the trip, however, was the care and attention displayed by our crew, Captain Dave and Chef Tayla. Both were very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. Besides Captaining the boat, Dave took care to ensure each of our island excursions were memorable including taking us to popular attractions as well as “off the beaten path” experiences. He was always mindful of our safety and enjoyment. Tayla runs an efficient kitchen and five star quality hotel experience. Each meal was flavorful and prepared to perfection. Neither her confined work space galley nor rolling tides diminished in anyway her always artful presentation and creative multiple course meals. Because of her, we limited our off the boat dining. Her constant smile and desire to please each guest was sincere and much appreciated. Overall, our experience was beyond our expectations. We highly recommend Dave and Tayla as your crew of choice on your next sea adventure.
Patti and John
This review is to applaud the excellent adventure we took with Tayla and David onboard the magnificent 60ft Power Catamaran, "Ohana".
There is not doubt in my mind that our amazing trip we had in early December 2020 around the islands of the Bahamas was due to the charter management skills and work ethic of Tayla and David.
We have chartered boats in previous years and I can honestly say that the crew is so extremely dedicated, professional and conscientious of their positions.
Taylas commitment to maintaining a clean environment while you are onboard does not go unnoticed. As well, she served some of the tastiest meals I have ever consumed in my life while onboard. I honestly believe the food she served made the trip unique and exciting, always excited for the next meal!
David's captain skills are remarkable, truly one of the best Captains we have ever come across. He is confident in his decision making, safety skills and his skills in knowing the ins and outs of remote location all around the Bahamas are so evident. He truly went above and beyond to make sure every location we visited topped the previous.
The crew worked efficiently and swiftly together, just as a well oiled machine would. I highly recommend booking charters with this outstanding team aboard the beautiful Ohana!
Cheers to a wonderful adventure. DVJ
Bahamas Charter August 2019
What an amazing vacation! Exploring the Exumas and celebrating High School Graduations. Stu, you are an excellent tour guide for finding the best snorkel spots and land adventures. Hannah, your laugh...it is infections! It makes us smile every time we hear it! And your food was amazing! You had our kids trying things they never would have eaten at home :-) We will never forget the adventures and memories made. Iguanas, turtles, sharks, caves, pigs, i think we saw a little of everything! And Exploding Kittens! We will never forget this trip or your wonderful hospitality! Thank You! Adam, Leslie, Noah, Abbey, Emma-Grace and Aaron.
BVI Charter April 2019
It is not an exaggeration to say that you have changed our lives this week. We boarded Ohana with some trepidation about whether we would enjoy a charter cruise; we will debark today not only having extended our first cruise from 3 days to 7, but with three additional future cruises with you already booked.
Every element of our experience has been a pleasant surprise, from Hannah's Michelin-level cuisine to he pleasures of "deep" underwater snorkeling, safely escorted by Stu, the expert underwater photographer. We are so appreciate your incredibly high lever of service, attention to detail, and over all kindness in accommodating our requests and making us feel completely at ease at all times. You have utterly spoiled us this week, and we are now charter cruise converts. Thank you most sincerely for absolutely everything.

Christmas Charter BVI 2018
The Goodwyn gang cannot begin to thank you enough for making our Christmas vacation so absolutely unforgettable! each port exceeded our wildest expectations - from snorkeling Diamond Cay and the Bubbly Pool, to The Dogs, To Anegada where we rode scooters and caught lobsters and conch. Fishing was a highlight catching 3 Wahoo and 5 Blackfin Tuna!!!! Our tattoos from Michael Beans show lasted the whole trip!
Dinner at The Wonky Dog did not compare to anything Hannah could magically whip up onboard. Jet skiing in Leverick Bay and the tour around the outside of the island was incredible! Christmas Day spent at The Baths and Little Harbour was unsurpassable! The sub-wing, turtles, night dive and Christmas DINNER!!! (Where Hannah finally defeated us) Made all Christmases to come a hard act to follow.
Snorkeling the Indians was among the best and our hike up Norman "mountain" helped prepare us for the next meal! We are sad to be leaving but we cannot thank you enough for making this the trip of a lifetime!!! until next time......
P.S The boys unanimously agree Hannah can make anything taste good!

Our entire family made memories with you two that will last forever. Its always a challenge to get 3 so very different young adults to have so much fun that they’ll remember it forever and you guys succeeded.
This trip went far beyond our expectations and it is because you gave us such impeccable service and so many laughs!
The food, the games, the places we saw together will forever be the fondest of memories. Thank you for that!
