Here’s what past clients have to say about their experiences booking through us:

  • My girlfriend and I just got back from a vacation in the BVIs thru Owner Time Charters and we couldn't be happier! We were greeted by our amazing Captain Lisa and First Mate Flair, who welcomed us with cocktails while they got our bags on board for us. We then set sail, and were soon served an amazing gourmet dinner (Linguine with shrimp and Mussels and Banana Flambé for desert!). Everything we ate on board was excellent. The boat was large and luxurious, with several different areas to lounge around in. Some in our party wanted to learn to sail, and Lisa and Flair made a point of showing them how to work the boat. The crew designed a great itinerary for us and tailored it to our particular needs, they were very flexible. We had several people in our party with dietary restrictions and they were able to accommodate us all.
    I'd recommend this company to all travelers looking for an unforgettable Caribbean experience.

  • I sailed on a Lagoon 52 around the British Virgin Islands in June of 2014. It was my first sailing trip. What a great way to spend a week. We sailed to a different island every day, picked out a quiet cove and dropped anchor for the night. During the days we visited the Baths at Virgin Gorda, the Bubbly Pool and the Soggy Dollar Beach Bar (You just can't get there without getting waist deep in water...hence the name) on Jost Van Dyke. Went snorkeling every day at some spectacular locations. And we wrapped things up with the Full Moon Party at Bomba's Beach Shack on Tortola. A great vacation from beginning to end.

  • I just wanted to write you and thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful boat. We treated it well, and Zagreb treated us well in return...everything ran flawlessly. We had beautiful weather, ...the best snorkeling I've ever experienced.

    I hope you will allow us to charter with you again next year, if all goes well. I wish you the best.

  • Attached is a picture of our crew on the last trip. I am the one all the way on the right. Looking forward to another trip next year. Might want to do the Abacos again around the same time. Keep me in mind…

  • Just got back from a great week of sailing. The yacht handled wonderfully, no problems, and we took good care of her.

    Let me know if there are available weeks in 2016 as we begin to plan our next adventure. Thanks again for setting this up.

  • We were part of an old group of friends who decided to take a holiday together on the open water. We couldn't have asked for anything better! The boat was one of the most luxurious things I've ever been on. There's six bedrooms total, each with their own bathroom and three common areas. We were guided by a wonderful couple: Lisa, the captain and Flair, the first mate and chef. Flair made us three gourmet meals a day: french toast and eggs for breakfast, salad and shellfish for lunch, and then for dinner, fish and veggies. We had a lot of dietary restrictions in our  group—everything from being kosher, to not eating sugar—but Flair was able to accommodate. Lisa was calm, collected and had a great sense of humor. She took us to the magical Baths, snorkeling, and Virgin Gorda, among many other beach trips. Honestly had the time of my life. My husband also celebrated his birthday on the boat, and Lisa and Flair created a little party for him, including a cake! At night we would put an anchor down on the open waters and stare up at the stars. It felt great to reconnect with friends, but was also very romantic.
    I packed a couple bathing suits and four sundresses and that was the perfect amount. We spent more time in our suits than real clothes, and even when went to land—like visiting the Soggy Dollar bar for their infamous Painkiller cocktails—I still only wore a bikini.

  • I think the Grenadines are pretty much the best yet for the total combination of wind, sailing fun and challenge, physical beauty, sea life, and diversity and charm of anchorages. We had a truly epic charter...A sailor’s dream.

    The Tabago Cays are paradise. Snorkeling off the boat at Mustique was the best snorkeling off the boat we have ever had, including in French Polynesia. It was just all good. I think we will be heading back! The boat was very clean and in great shape. The bases at Grenada and at St. Vincent were both very well managed, and both took excellent care of us, and sweated the details. And the facilities at both locations were also very pleasant and convenient. A very smooth experience indeed.

  • My wife and I sailed for a week out of Martinique last November (2017).  It was my third such trip in as many years as this form of vacation has become our favorite.  We sailed northward to Dominica and the Iles des Saintes at the southern tip of Guadeloupe.  Everything about the trip was five stars, especially the food from our cook from the south of France, Nina.  Plenty of time for snorkeling every day and touring some out of the way places you don't get to see from the big cruise ships.  Beautiful experience. Gorgeous scenery.  Highly recommended.

  • I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for setting up the charter for me. After the remains of Erika blew thru, we had great weather and had a great time!


  • Loved the water maker! No complaints at all. The 52 was perfect for our group. I am glad we were able to rent from you!

    Perfect Trip.

  • Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for EVERYTHING this last 14 months! I have so much appreciated all of you help. No question has been left unanswered! I just wanted to let you know what AMAZING trip we had!!!! Captain Liz was the best! Smart, funny, fun to be around, phenomenal skipper...all around, made everything so enjoyable. And that boat! I'm so glad we went with the 52 ft. It was so roomy and comfortable! We provisioned with Riteway and that was SO much easier than shopping ourselves. We ordered booze thru Caribbean Cellars and service was spot on. I would not hesitate to book through Owner Time again. You were so very helpful in all aspects. I'm pretty sure you're going to miss hearing from me every 16 hours, but truly, it's been a pleasure speaking and emailing with you!

  • I felt taken care of every step of the way by an impeccable crew who fearlessly accommodated the ever-changing needs of my group. The boat itself was supremely impressive and well-appointed with every amenity you could want. We went to some gorgeous places, ate incredible food, and laughed the night away under the stars. What a perfect escape from the grind of every day life, as well as a way to bond with friends and get in touch with nature. Truly what living is all about!

  • Just wanted to let you know we had a great family trip and really enjoyed Day Seven!! had a great sail down from North sound to JVD hitting 8 & 9 knots with 22 knot winds... Loved it!

    Thank you!

  • We sailed out of Grenada on a Lagoon 620. I love big cruise ships, but they can’t compare to the luxury and relaxation of a private sailboat vacation. Our Italian chef, Nirvana, created incredible meals and adult beverages were plentiful. We loved the experience of snorkeling in a sunken sculpture garden, and snorkeling with hundreds of sea turtles in Tobago Cay was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives!

  • Each morning, upon rising from our cabins we would find a beautifully arranged fruit platter in addition to a wide assortment of tea, coffee, juice, yogurt, cereal and toast. As the guests gathered we would have a more formal breakfast. Each day it differed, we had french toast, eggs, hash browns, bacon and veggie sausages. Throughout the day we’d have an assortment of snacks, a cheese platter, fresh-made pizza, as well as veggies and dips. Lunch varied, but some highlights included a mahi-mahi burger, Singapore noodles and a delicious Cobb salad. Our dinners were plated with an artful zest. We had seafood pasta, chicken with lemon butter sauce and blackened fish. The cook was able to meet all of our dietary needs with grace.
