Growing up in the Chesapeake Bay area, Tim has been privileged to spend most of his time on a variety of boats, both motor and sailing. Tim is a fan of traveling and exploring the world around him in search of local adventures. Tim’s appetite for adventure and people has brought him to the Virgin Islands. His experience on racing yachts, enhanced his passion for crewing and sailing and encouraged him to pursue advanced certifications to expand his capabilities. In addition to sailing, Tim has other interests including snowboarding and restoring old houses. He is also known for taking home awards from BBQ competitions! He lives by the motto “It’s all about the experience” and looks forward to sharing and guiding guests to experience the beauty and adventure of the islands.

Chef Zara Browne
Zara was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to Long Island at a young age where she found her love of the water. She spent her weekends sailing with her Dad and exploring the North Fork of Long Island. When she wasn’t enjoying the outdoors she spent her down time at her family’s restaurant in Hoboken, NJ where her love of fresh quality food began.
Her professional background has always been in the restaurant industry and hospitality. She has over 15 years of bartending experience and another 5 years in luxury concierge services working closely with high profile NYC restaurants, planning extravagant events, and running private spas and gyms.
When Zara felt she wanted a change of pace she decided what better way to bring her love of hospitality and the water together than joining the yachting industry. She has been lucky enough to work under multiple yacht chefs where she has been able to add a new layer of knowledge to her personal culinary experience.
Zara has always had a passion for bringing a memorable experience to her guests and looks forward to helping form unforgettable memories aboard Ocelot through food, cocktails, and the ambiance of the islands.
