Capt Joe, your skipper, owner, and cook, joined the US Navy at age 17. He has been Captaining ships ever since. He has run cruise ships and casino boats and worked in the oil industry. In addition, to the state-run ferries in Louisiana and basically anything that floats, he can drive.
He moved to the BVI in 1999 and has been running a successful charter business since then. Joe possibly runs one of the oldest charter businesses here in the BVI; needless to say, his local knowledge and experience are second to none.
Michael is from the spice Island of Grenada; he also has worked on cruise ships. Including (Star Clipper Line and P&O) and traveling the world; Michael was running a local cargo boat when Irma showed her ugly face and ended up on the rocks of North Sound Virgin Gorda.
Michael has been with BVI Motor Yacht PRIME TIME for over a year and loves taking the guests out with the tender to dinner and drinks at night and fishing with the little ones from the back of the boat while at anchor (he does this most nights)
The crew wants people to be comfortable and act as they would at home; we are very laid back. Our Companies Motto has always been “Come as Guests…Leave as Friends…”. That still holds while running Prime Time. However, we have added a new one for the niche we plan on filling in this industry. We like to refer to it as “Yachting on a Beer Budget.”
With that mentality, we also want our guests to “embrace the local culture.” Which is why we only do breakfast and lunches onboard. We believe a yacht charter here in the BVI is much more than just being on a beautiful boat for seven days.
Your Crew wants you to enjoy the things that “we do.” Whether local BBQ, fish fry, or drinks on the beach. Or just chilling on your own private beach, we will make your time with us memorable.
Whether you charter the entire yacht or join us for our monthly “cabin-only charters.” We believe you will not be disappointed. The Yacht is comfortable and luxurious, the crew’s attention to detail is expected in this industry, and Joe’s home-cooked meals may not be as good as “Moms” but run a close second.

Another fantastic trip! Captain Joe and Mike are so friendly, full of knowledge, and a great time! We wouldn’t travel on another boat in the BVI. Great food and drinks, and lots of laughs! Capt. Joe took us to all the spots on our list and a few more.
If you have ever wanted to charter a boat to see the Islands, Prime Time is the only way to do it! Already looking to book again for next year.
A once in a lifetime experience! While the first class accommodations, amazing food, great daily scenery and evening stars were enough to blow you away, every day, Captain Joe would share historical and informative stories about all of the islands. Michael (your attentive concierge & second in command) would make sure you had a great experience on each stop! Perfect trip in all ways possible! Each island held great snorkeling, food and drink and beautiful sunsets… the crew, the boat and the islands were all beyond my expectations! My favorite adventure yet!! Thank you Joe and Michael for memories to last a lifetime!! It was the best.

Captain Joe and his first mate Mike were nothing short of fantastic hosts. They mapped out amazing excursions that they felt we couldn’t miss, and jam packed them to make sure we got to experience as much as we could in only 3 days. We had the best trip we could have imagined and it was like out of our dreams. The food was fantastic, the drinks were always ice cold and ready, the ships common quarters were always spotless. We’re already trying to figure out how we can get back down there again! I promise if you book with these guys you will NOT be disappointed. They made you feel like family and never heard the word “no” from either of them. Give these guys the opportunity to show you a trip of a lifetime. Thank you again Joe and Mike, we’ll be back for a full week next time.
