Green Initiatives

Green Initiative:
Reusable Bottles:
Other Green Efforts: Nutmeg supplies reusable water bottles for guests to refill. The refill water station has a mineral supplemented inline filter. We do not purchase plastic bottles of water. We use locally made EC Soap products in refillable dispensers in guest bathrooms. This eliminates having lots of small containers of shampoo, etc. (and saves the guests on luggage). We do not use plastic plates or cups. We use cloth napkins. We have recently upgraded the electrical system on Nutmeg along with increasing the storage batteries. We now have the latest, state-of-the-art solar panel system with smart alternators. This allows us to have maximum charging with little generator use. We encourage our guests to open their hatches to avoid using the Air Conditioner. However, this is only a suggestion and use of the generator for air conditioning is not limited if guests request it.

Crew

Crew Information

Captain: John White

Max and Whitey (Maxine and John White) are entering their second season on Nutmeg but have over 20 years in the crewed yacht charter industry. Whitey is originally from Perth, Australia and Max from the mountainous state of Utah but they have made the Caribbean their home. After meeting in the San Francisco Bay Area and went sailing. They dropped their anchor in Cane Garden Bay, Tortola where they got married and then 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 power boat exploring the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and Belize.

Whitey takes the helm of Nutmeg as he sails you around the islands. He knows all of the anchorages intimately and takes pride in customizing the itinerary to the guest preference. He holds a RYA Yacht Master Ocean license and has been a PADI Dive Instructor for 25 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 stories of Whitey and Max’s travels while being served some original and classic beverages from the bar.

First Mate and Chef Max brings her years of extensive travel to inspire her meal preparation on Nutmeg. Max likes to use local and fresh ingredients and her primary culinary specialties are Latin and Caribbean as well as Asian and Mediterranean cuisines. In past international charter yacht boat shows, she has been a major award winner on two occasions. Max is also an avid diver as a PADI Dive Master for over 20 years. She especially likes to show her guests the underwater world and knows the best snorkel spots in the BVIs.
While sailing on a Nutmeg charter you can expect to have a specialized and relaxing sailing vacation with this very experienced and fun crew!

Hugh is a sheer delight to be with as well as an accomplished leader. It is clear he set the tone for the entire experience and Doris is an accomplished chef with a well tuned service ethic. Was truly a memorable experience and the service was a big part of that.

In any business the top 5% distinguish themselves through attention to detail and attitude. This is a top tier crew.
A family aboard catamaran NUTMEG for New Years 2020-2021 said:
Bottom line: I would not hesitate to recommend Nutmeg or its crew to others.

Max and Whitey are very easy to be with, and were great with the children. We all enjoyed their company, and they made us feel at home on Nutmeg. The food was fantastic and varied. There were not many instances in which someone did not fully clean their plate. Max made special effort with the food for New Year’s Eve, with lobster for lunch and steak for dinner. She also accommodated our youngest child with her preferred chicken when seafood (not preferred by her) was served. We ate very, very well.

As you know, the crew agreed to take the “drop down” forward cabin, leaving the four main cabins in the rear for our family of five. I did not previously appreciate what a significant difference this would make. It made the boat feel larger for us than it otherwise would have felt and provided some privacy that we may not have had otherwise. Their willingness to accommodate guests in that way really makes a significant positive difference in the experience.

Thanks for setting us up with the Nutmeg and its crew. We had a great trip.

Max and Whitey: THANK YOU again for such a wonderful trip. Your skill, experience, creativity, passion, personal chemistry – and the fact that you’re just great human beings, all made this a unique, memorable and superbly enjoyable experience for Melanie & I. I think I can safely vouch that Pete & Vera’s experience was the same.

Catamaran NUTMEG's guests in the Grenadines for early August, 2019, said:
We had a wonderful time with Max and Whitey. Everything was beyond our expectations, the catamaran was beautiful and spacious and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect holiday!!! Max and Whitey were absolutely wonderful: Whitey full of energy and with a great Aussie sense of humor and Max, the quiet force accompanying him, she made every meal truly wonderful: the food was delicious, varied and healthy!!! We were truly pampered (even our beds were made when we weren’t watching!!!), and we really appreciated their huge amount of experience both with sailing and in life. We miss them already!!! If we ever decide to sail again in the Caribbean we would choose them again, without hesitation!!!! Thank you for everything!!!
