CAPTAIN
Captain Tim Shiaris
Speaks English
CREW
Crew Zara Browne

<b>Captain Tim Shiaris</b>

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. His calm demeanor, attention to safety, and dedication to his guests’ time in the islands will ensure the best experience for everyone aboard.

<b>Chef/First Mate Zara Browne</b>
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.



<font color="#e36532" size="+1"><b><center> .......... NEW CREW FOR 2024/2025 SEASON ..........</center></b> </font>


<b> Captain Arlene Mangold</b>
Fate, or perhaps favorable winds, brought Arlene and Jason together in the Sea of Cortez. Both share a deep love for sailing, preferring the quiet power of the wind to the rumble of engines whenever possible.

Without any prior experience, Arlene captained a 47ft ketch, earning her experience the hard way. Her first voyage was helping deliver a motor yacht from Mexico to Washington. This dreaded passage is called the baja bash, it is a difficult journey against wind, waves, and current. When she returned to Mexico she cruised for 3 years with her son on her sailboat. This took her from Mexico to Key West via the Panama Canal.

She conquered the dreaded Papagayo Winds, which blow with hurricane force, cruised 400 miles off shore, and visited amazing local towns along the way. During the Panama Canal transit her boat suffered mechanical problems she had to overcome. Using local knowledge she then sailed from Panama to Key West, taking advantage of favorable currents and winds to arrive in only 7 days.

Arlene's deep love for the ocean extends beyond the surface. Her dive computer boasts over 800 dives, encompassing wrecks, caves, the thrill of night dives, and the captivating world of underwater photography. A true water enthusiast, she embraces every aspect the ocean offers, from diving and snorkeling to fishing, exploring hidden coves, and savoring local culinary delights.


<b> Chef/First Mate Jason Hite</b>
Jason has spent over half his life at sea. Summer was spent offshore, fishing for pelagics like Yellowtail and Dorado. Winter brought the thrill of solo night diving for lobster, catching them by hand. In 2009, Jason traded the roar of engines for the sound of the wind. He joined a yacht club and improved his sailing by racing. The call of adventure grew stronger, leading him to sail south in 2015. For the next eight years, his 50ft ketch became his home, carrying him across 18,000 nautical miles of Mexican waters. He finds his escape in the cool embrace of the ocean depths, scuba diving to 200 feet, freediving, spearfishing, and turning the ocean's bounty into delicious dinners.

His sailing journeys weren't just about destinations, but about the people he met along the way. A melting pot of cultures filled his galley with international flavors. He learned to make a hearty borscht from a Russian crewmate, the art of falafel from Israelis, and savored the smoky goodness of South African Braaibroodjie. In Zihuatanejo, fate offered a unique opportunity: a chance to learn from a former head chef of the Monaco Yacht Club. Inspired by his fellow cruisers, Jason channeled his passion for healthy, natural cuisine into a self-published cookbook: "Secrets of Volare's Galley." This culinary guide empowers fellow sailors to create international dishes using fresh, local Mexican ingredients. Jason's philosophy is simple: fresh, whole foods, free from preservatives and artificial additives. Why make everything from scratch? Because you’re worth it!

Thanks to Captain Devan and Chef Tim for taking such good care of us. We cannot have picked a better crew to spend our week with, lots of laughing, dancing and awesome libation! we hope to sail with you again someday!

With Love Lexi ,Jake, Jessica, Quinn, Caroline and Linda

February 2021

This was my bucket list trip – it was beyond my expectations. The service – the food – the knowledge – the conversations – with our captain Devan and our Chief Ashely. They took such great care of us. Great Friends- views. All our moorings. Meeting their friends, the Terrance-drink-windmill the projector- such a great time great memory- so grateful and unforgettable- loved every second.
Love- Laureen and Myrtle

February 2021

This was in so many ways one of the most memorable trips. Laureen’s bucket list trip with great friends and a supper crew. Captain Devan and amazing chef Ashley provided great passage, anchorage, and super good, prepared food.
Thanks for the memories.

February 2021

We came into this trip very unsure of what to expect. We were not disappointed at all. Kevin who is not a fan of water did this trip for me since it was a bucket list trip. And this is the most that I have seen hi relax in a long time. No Phone and no work for 7 days. So, thank you both!! We were offered many options for activities (weather permitted). The food was spectacular!! And the company even better! You girls are special 😊 Keep up the good work stay sweet and always smile even with the difficult guests. The good fun guests will make up for the crabby boring ones. Lol like us!! Blessings to both of you and if you are ever in WV look s up….
Kevin; Jed and wheeling
Hope to see you again!

February 2021

Thank you Capt. Devan and Time for a wonderful week at sea. Your skill, warmth, and so much more made this a week ill always remember. Thanks!

February 2021

There's something about a ride. What a ride through the Caribbean surf, turquoise water, big winds and waves, painkillers and fresh poké. You guys outdid yourselves making us all feel welcome and special. Here's to keeping those good vibrations in a bottle. Onboard with love.

March 2021

We started to dream of this trip 1 ½ years ago...little did we know that a pandemic would have us stuck in our houses for the past year. We were so excited to be able to take this trip despite travel restrictions. You and Tim showed us the best snorkel spots and beaches. We were all looking forward to each meal – truly gourmet! But by far, our awesome Captain and first mate were what we will remember best with time. You two are the best – from dance parties and s'mores with all the kids to beating us all to cards – you made our trip fabulous!! We hope to sail with you again soon and challenge you to a rematch! We hit the jackpot with you two and Ocelot – thank you so much!! Skiing and tubing was also so much fun!! And the boat concert – unbelievable!!
xoxo

March 2021

Wow! What a whirlwind of great days, great views, great food and great company! This was just what the doctor ordered after at home for a year. You make running a charter look easy – we know its not! You're always looking for ways to add to a meal, a picnic, or a dinghy ride. The food was just fantastic. We appreciate all your efforts to keep us on the healthy side and keeping it super flavorful with out going overboard on heat! The kids had the time of their lives - tubing, snorkeling, kayaking and hanging out with you two. We couldn't imagine a more thoughtful, friendly, and hard working team to enjoy this amazing vacation, Thanks for making each day so special! With love and appreciation!

April 2021

Thank you making this week so awesome! Y'all truly made the trip even more amazing! Y'all really planned an awesome trip with a lot of really cool activities. There was never a dull moment and that is exactly what I was hoping. If we do this trip again I hope y'all are still around because I don't think it would be as fun without y'all! Thank you again for everything!

April 2021

We have had the best time this week with friends and family. And you two made it even more special. You broke my seasickness cherry and Ashley just likes to follow me so she had to join in. Ashley is an adventure/history seeker so you guys checked those boxes in St. Croix. And we are prepared now for the journey. We just helped with some lessons for your future charters. With each stop the trip got better and better. They were spaced out perfectly and exceeded our expectations. Tim, the food was top notch and that you for working around the food allergies. Until next time!

May 2021

This week was perfect! You both made it the best trip we have ever had. Everything was beautiful! Thank you for setting up all of the activities for us. This is a trip that we will never forget. From the amazing day sail to the amazing meals and the Monday that we all blacked out thanks to the taco bar! It has been a blast! I hope the both of you come visit us in the South Carolina. You are welcome anytime!

June 2021

Thanks for an incredible journey of wildlife underwater, delicious meals, sailing and great cocktails. We appreciate yall treating us like family. We had so much fum, thank yall so so much!

We finally found some turtles! Thanks for taking us on all the adventures! Hope to come back soon!

June 2021

Thank you for taking us to beautiful places and feeding us great meals. I wish you safe travels with your future charters and luck with everything you do in life. It was great meeting you and drinking a lot of booze with you! Stay safe, healthy, and fun, and I hope our paths cross again! Thank you!

June 2021

Thank you for such a great trip! I loved the food and entertainment. I don't think I will be able to drink anymore alcohol for a while. Thanks so very much for a fantastic trip. You guys were so awesome with your food, entertainment and hospitality! This was a trip we will all never forget!

June 2021

Thank you so much for such an awesome week! Our family thoroughly enjoyed all of the food, booze, sun, sea, and turtles! Just as much fun was getting to know you two and hearing all of your cool stories! You two make a great team and made our trip unforgettable! Til next time, St. Croix lol

July 2021

Thanks so much for a great week on the water! Had an excellent time snorkeling, water skiiing and checking out lots of turtles! Food was top shelf as were the bushwackers. The latter made it a lot easier to give all my money away in poker!

July 2021

Thank you for an extraordinary vacation. It was exactly what we need – relaxation with adventure. Thank for always making us feeling safe at sea and for the delicious meals! Thanks for an amazing trip! And for all the really fun dives and places we got to eat! Thank you so much for an amazing week. All the dives were amazing and it was so nice to get to know you guys. See you around!

July 2021

I cant even put into words how great this past week on Ocelot has been! Ocelot is a beautiful boat, the USVI is an amazing place, but what really made our trip special was the two of you! Devan, you are an awesome Captain and role model for our girls. You enthusiasm for chartering and always being up for the next adventure made this trip so much more fun for all of us! Tim, in addition to being an excellent chef, you taught poker and always knew the perfect time to offer a cocktail! Both of you were so patient and kind with our gaggle of kids. They adore you! Thanks so much for giving us lots of happy memories from the week.
Take care,
Virginia

November 2021

Devan and Davis

Bon Temps! We cannot thank you enough for guiding us through a beautiful week of joy and laughter. Devan, your smile and confidence constantly impressed us. Davis, your stories and easy going manner warmed our hearts. Keep the sails high and the love flowing! God bless!

November 2021

Devan and Davis – Thank you for the best week in paradise – you are a class act crew and we enjoyed every minute of fun, mapping, trivia, sailing, talking, laughing, eating, snorkeling, sunset watching, and everything we are forgetting (probably because we had too much chardonnay :)) We truly appreciated your professionalism combined with playfulness, love, and knowledge :) We wish you the best for the rest of the season and life together – Be grateful for all of the small things :) We look forward to staying in touch!

November 2021

Devan and Davis,

We cannot thank you enough for making this 'bucket-list trip' for our family so wonderful. It completely exceeded our expectations and we 100 percent have you guys to thank for that. You are both so easy-going and could handle all of our varying interests, tastes, and personalities perfectly. Each spot you took us to, each activity we did, and each meal we ate was perfection! We will remember this trip forever and we will always be grateful to y’all for everything. Best of luck to you guys in the future...maybe we can meet us again in Wilmington. Thank you again for everything!

December 2021

Dear Devan and Davis,

Thank you so much for an amazing week! This was a much needed vaca following a tough quarter at school. You both were very welcoming and thoughtful throughout the trip. I really appreciate you guys showing us around. I loved the sunset on the beach and all the turtles/sealife! Happy Holidays!

Cabins, beds, bathrooms:

We had everything we needed.

Did you miss anything on board?

No.

What did you enjoy the most on board?

Everything was great. Some family members really appreciated the open water sailing. Others would say the friendliness of the crew. Others would say the swimming or the on-shore excursions such as hiking. Everyone loved the food.


Please describe your Captain (professional/outgoing/friendly etc.)

All the above. The captain was great.
What do you think about your itinerary, the places and bays you visited and the activities you have done?

Itinerary & activities were great. Our family was pretty flexible. The crew did great in terms of helping put an itinerary together for us.

Yes. The crew was very accommodating in terms of a few dietary preferences.


If you had children in your party, what did the crew do to make their vacation special (food, games, toys, etc)?

The crew was great with the kids. Especially in terms of preparing children food dishes and giving them some special 1 on 1 time when needed.

December 2022

Our family has had a fabulous and relaxing sailing vacation in and around The USVI. From the moment we got onboard Tim and Zara were incredibly friendly, thoughtful, professional, and a warm desire to be attentive to our needs as their 1st family charter on Ocelot! We have sailed before on a catamaran in Croatia, so we know what to expect of a week living and dining on a catamaran. Tim and Zara did not disappoint. Dining on the boat was delicious, healthy, varied, and beautifully presented. Zara was easily able to accommodate our family's dietary needs as well. Zara was an incredible host and bartender! Tim definitely knows his way around The USVI and every great beach, snorkeling area and routes to sail. Tim was flexible in giving us options for the day so we were able to pack in a lot during a day- snorkle, paddle, kayak, and hike all in a day. Tim and Zara became part of our family unit as the trip progressed which made it that much more special. We were absolutely blown away with nightly Hanukkah treats for us- really so unique and thoughtful. We would 100% love the opportunity to sail again with Tim and Zara

January 2023

Hands down best family vaca! Voted by all of us. Zara and Tim made our time on the water so special. The meals were above and beyond delicious and accommodating our family's dietary needs is not easy. Beautiful coves and water activities were perfect for our adventurous family. We hope to do this again and couldn't imagine any other crew to do it with. Thank you Zara and Tim for everything!!

January 2023

Thank you Zara and Tim for the best Camera Family 2023 vacation. You both went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and at home. Your meals were delicious and the cocktails tasty. Snorkeling the caves and Indians were beautiful. The Baths were glorious to enjoy! Who can forget our "Foxy's Facts" and late night living there. Your hospitality and little extra touches made for a perfect trip. We can't wait to come back! We can't thank you enough!

June 2023

An epic week of birthday celebrations who knew that a bunch of 60 year olds could shut down the Willy T and Foxys! What an amazing week of fun, sun, drinks, and karaoke. The food was fantastic, breakfast lunch and dinner. No other crew that we will sail with ever again. Thank you!!

An amazing week with Zara and Tim- Thank you for everything, delicious food, drinks (loved having a painkiller waiting when we arrived!) Sails we’re amazing, great snorkeling spots and island hopping. What a great trip!!

Thank you Tim and Zara for an outstanding trip and being super fun. Also thanks for putting up with our “help” crewing when you could have been but were never impatient with our incompetence!
P.s faves include Zara’s amazing apps and cocktails, the beanbags and float, and Zara’s incredible ability to get me outside my comfort zone.

Tim and Zara thank you for jumping in to provide a most amazing trip. This was truly spectacular. It would be hard to top this trip. Thank you for your hospitality, good natures and amazing meals. Lots of great memories thanks for making it so special. You guys rock!

Amazing trip Tim and Zara! Thank you for the fantastic meals and for transporting us from one magnificent spot to another. We appreciate all your work and thoughtfulness on our special 60th birthday vaca! So grateful for all the memories you helped us make together aboard Ocelot

June 2023

Bucket list/ dream trip USVI and BVI. Tim and Zara were a perfect match for our “Party of 5.” The food 10/10. Loved the attention to detail for the teens whether it came to chilling on the mat or Tim giving sailing lessons… as we write our reflection of the week, we cannot decide on if lobsters and limbo on Anegada or hiking the Baths or snorkeling the Indians.. all of it was pure perfection.
Thank you Zara for the attention to detail on our preference sheet and more!! We will miss paradise but are so grateful to have made lifetime memories.
All our love, The Crochet Family

Dear Tim and Zara,
Thank you for making my last break for a while so magical! Thank you for the rare opportunities (like water skiing and knee boarding) that even if we drove you crazy you still let us keep trying until we got it. The food was absolutely incredible along with the visual. You guys are so amazing and I will miss you both endlessly. Zara, thank you for letting me cook with you and showing me the behind the scenes in the kitchen. Tim, thank you for putting up with my stubbornness when I was attempting to waterski and then hyping me up when I went knee boarding. I would also like to thank you guys for teaching me how to sail, maneuver a boat as well as how to tie them off. I couldn’t ask for a better crew to spend my vacation with! I wish you the best and I hope to see you guys again some day!

Thank you for being the best crew we could ever imagine. Your cooking was top tier, the excursions were great and the cruising was simply spectacular. We wish you all the best for 2024 and hope the rest of your season goes as well as our trip did.

How can we begin to thank you for the incredible week we’ve gotten to spend on your incredible boat?! We will cherish every memory. The fishing, the snorkeling, the hiking and all the laughs! You offered unparalleled hospitality and treated us like family.
Thank you for curating the best stops, incredible meals, perfect cocktails, fantastic conversation but most of all for putting up with the Thornton family chaos and shenanigans! We miss you already! If you ever need a Texas ranch fix we’re a call away!

Zara and Tim,
We cannot thank you enough for the amazing time! From the moment we stepped on board we felt completely at home. You both are so warm and gracious. Your attention to detail is outstanding. Our every want and need was anticipated.
We will never forget all the different sites, activities and excursions you planned for us. We would have a difficult time picking a favorite. Each day was better than the last and the meals were so delicious that many nights we chose to eat on board rather than venture out. When we did go dine on land your recommendations were just right!
We hope to see you back in the states- you are welcome at our home anytime!

It was amazing!! Tim and Zara are the most gracious hosts! We had so much fun with them! The boat was beautiful! You could tell they took pride in their work! Zara is an amazing cook- Tim made a few yummy things as well! Tim had great knowledge of local things. Took us to the “popular “ places but took us to places we didn’t know about and we had some great adventures! I couldn’t recommend this trip enough- especially with Tim and Zara!!
