Island Standard Time Description

The Bali 4.8 design was new to the market in 2020 and provided a fresh approach to sailing. The design is revolutionary in how space is accessed, with deliberate attention to flow and open space. It succeeds in producing a scale that feels less like a boat, and more like an upscale floating condominium. Bali catamarans are known and appreciated for their unparalleled success in blending luxury, space, and performance; producing a sailing experience that is unparalleled. This new design further capitalizes on that reputation with the advent of the “Bali garage door” that is the centerpiece of the yacht. It allows for the aft wall of the yacht to simply disappear, opening up the back of the yacht to an unobstructed view of paradise. This also affords indoor/outdoor dining options and gives the ever-present Caribbean breeze ample opportunity to make its way through the yacht with ease. With her solid foredeck gone are the forward trampolines, replaced by a large relaxing lounge area complete with cushions for sunbathing. A full-sized door provides access directly from the lounge area into the salon, allowing free movement through the yacht. A walk up to the flybridge unveils a seating area perfect for cocktails and taking in sunsets. There is also another area for sunbathing on the flybridge where you can take in the sights of the islands from the highest vantage point on the yacht. The Bali open space design is further complimented by the superior outfit of Island Standard Time. No detail has been left unnoticed from the fine linens, pillows and throws to the wine glasses, serving and flatware that make every day feel luxurious. She has been stocked full with every appliance and kitchen accessory to allow the chef to fully showcase the mastery of their art. And the water toys abound, allowing guests to fully experience all the Caribbean has to offer, both in and out of the water. Island Standard Time will accommodate 8 charter guests in 4 spacious queen cabins. She has solar panels, air conditioning, water maker, ice maker, full sized refrigerator, a fully customizable menu, Caribbean made ecofriendly and reef safe toiletries, a bar stocked to guest preference, coffee/espresso machine, rendezvous scuba diving, snorkeling gear, underwater scooters, subwing, wakeboard, stand up paddle board, towable water tube, 10 ft. floating dock, pool noodles, fishing gear, board and card games, television in the salon, Fusion 3 Bluetooth enabled sound system and Island Standard Time giveaways.

Chef/First MateMila Bertassoni


Born in Plettenberg Bay along the coast of South Africa Caydon grew up in a small town. His first year out of high school he spent in Australia working abroad.
It was there that he was introduced to yachting, coming onboard as a guest. He quickly fell in love with the concept and when he returned home he began his sailing courses and has been working on the water ever since.
Since then he has worked for several sailing schools and has been an instructor for both power and sailing vessels. He spent last season in Croatia working for Yachtweek where he fell in love with chartering and the experience of sailing with guests from all over the world. It was there that he was able to evolve his love of being on the water from teaching to accommodating and entertaining guests and showing them just how magnificent our sea landscape can be. He looks forward to continuing to share his love of sailing with others in the Caribbean.

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, amidst natural and sunny landscapes, Mila and the sea have a lifetime relationship. As a worldwide traveler, exploring new places and cultures are key to Mila, as studying and learning different subjects. Over 10 years ago, at Palma de Mallorca, Spain, was Mila´s first encounter with yachting.

Originally a graduated Veterinarian who also devoted a few of her years in a journalism major. She has a very diverse set of past work experiences: from a communication and marketing analyst, to handling and caring for pumas and jaguars in the Bolivian jungle, starting her own sustainability company, and becoming a yacht chef.

In 2022, in love with being a yacht chef, she took professional cooking classes at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in Sydney, and vegan cooking classes in Rio. She is passionate about vegan cooking and loves being able to provide vegan options for her guests!

After sailing and cooking through Spain, Brazil, Panama, the Virgin Islands, Antigua, Barbuda, and Croatia, Mila hopes to bring an innovative and sustainable mind to help her translate her passions and visions into cooking as a means to keep dazzling her guests in her third season in the Caribbean.

Island Standard Time Guest Reviews

Previous Yacht NameSunshine Baby 2
February 2024

Thank you so much for taking such good care of us during our week on Island Standard Time! It was beyond incredible and your hospitality is legendary. We´ll miss your delicious food, laughs and kindness. We appreciate you putting up with our rowdy group! You´re the best of the best!

February 2024

Thank you very much for the wonderful experience. We all enjoyed the week very much! Although we had a couple of rainy days you managed to make this vacation one we´ll never forget.

Mila, thank you for the delicious food (mentioning our favorites: mahi, mahi, spicy noodles, hamburgers, sausage with couscous and BBQ pork) also for being so cozy, welcoming and nice with all of us.

Caydon, thank you for taking us to all the amazing places. Thanks for teaching us how to jump to the waves and fly. Thanks for the incredible painkillers. You two have made this trip 10x better and comfortable. We appreciate your kindness and friendliness. We will miss you and we´ll never forget you or this trip.

January 2024

To Caydon & Mila, thank you for hte best 10 days at sea! Mila, the food has been delicious (my fave was the Mahi Mahi dumplings). Caydon, your competence at sea and making painkillers & cocolimes is unparalleled! We´ve had the best time in paradise, made even better with the both of you!

Mila + Caydon -
You make such a great team - Mila, your food was divine, so creative, beautfil and tasty. We were so excited about every meal, thank you.
Caydon, your confidence and competence made us feel like Kings of the sea. Thank you for taking us to the best places and for being so chilled and tolerant. The pair of you have made our holiday one to remember. Take care & stay well - with love & gratitude.

January 2024

What can the Kanzler´s say but wow!! Thank you so much for giving our family one of the most memorable, adventurous and fun-filled weeks together. Caydon you were so responsive and informative and found some great snorkel spots for us to enjoy. Mila, thank you for the 10 pounds we will need to work off when we get home - everything was so delicious and worth every bite!! Our 1st trip to the BVIs was a huge success and ya´ll were a BIG part of it!

December 2023

We just had the most wonderful week in the BVIs. Island Standard Time is a beautiful boat and Caydon and Mila were outstanding! Anyone who eats Mila´s delicious recipes is going to want to steal them and Caydon makes the best painkillers in the BVI. We had such an amazing time with the two of them and they definitely took us to all the best spots. The week was a great balance between fun activities and relaxing - we cannot wait to come back on another tropical destination on IST with Caydon and Mila!

Four Seasons level of quality and service - spring 2023

I’ll soon be writing a complete review but with zero hesitation I’d recommend Sunshine Baby 2 with captain Hugo and first mate Mila. This 4.8 state of the art Bali can be located through (*your broker). We stayed at Scrub Island in a gorgeous villa with the other couple and then literally walked onto our charter from the Villa. We’re fortunate to experience global travel at a Ten Dot, Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons level of quality and service and we can say with zero hesitation this was the best trip we’ve ever done. This particular Catamaran combined with Captain Hugo and Five Star First Mate Mila is the finest BVI has to offer.
