Ohana Crew Profile
Capt. Stuart Mackie and Chef/Mate Hannah Angel
Stu and Hannah have been working on charter boats for over 5 years in the BVI and Bahamas. They have a passion for hospitality and strive to do their best to give their guests a vacation of a lifetime.
Stu and Hannah met in 2013 in their home town of Southampton in the UK. Stu was working on a mega yacht, and during his second season aboard, whilst on a period of leave, he met Hannah. They decided to pursue a career together, and after a season in Turkey, came to the British Virgin Islands to work on charter catamarans.
Having grown up in Scotland, a stone’s throw from the sea, Stu has loved being on and around the water since childhood. In 2011 he decided to pursue his dream of sailing. After training for a year including a Trans-Atlantic, he left the UK to work on 250 ft mega yacht. Stu loves to share his knowledge of yachting and the local marine life. He has a passion for free diving, spear fishing, scuba diving, game fishing and all water sports.
Hannah has worked in multiple areas of hospitality during her career and is a graduate of the award winning Ashburton School of Cookery in the UK, where she worked with many talented chefs. She loves creating fun, fresh foods that look and taste amazing. Hannah has a bubbly personality and loves the social side of her work. She adores meeting new people and will make you laugh with her funny stories.
Stu and Hannah are an easy going couple that will focus your charter around your ideas. They want you to do the things you enjoy most at your preferred pace - relaxed or what´s next. Whether it is your first or fifth time to the BVI or the Bahamas, Stu and Hannah will help you explore the unique locations from the highlights to the lesser known anchorages and private coves.

Ohana Guest Reviews
We wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else! BVI Feb 2020
Dear Hannah and Stu, Another wonderful cruise with you is ending all too soon! Seeing the BVI through your eyes has transformed our perspective of these favourite islands of ours. This years cruise was completely different from last years even though we visited many of the same spots because you know everything worth seeing and doing. It just proves that we can cruise the BVI with you again and again and not get bored!
Stu you are the consummate captain. Experienced, sensible, calm and in control and always thinking of your guests. Hannah, i love to hear you whistling in the galley (and laughing at our terrible jokes) while you work your culinary magic. We’ve never eaten better than when we’re on the Ohana with you! Most of all, we greatly appriciate that both of you understand what we like best is what the Italians call “far Niente” - doing nothing. You let us relax completely in your capable hands and just enjoy being on this beautiful, peaceful boat. Although this adventure is coming to a close we are so excited to be rejoining you in just a few months to cruise the Bahamas for the first time! We know it will be amazing, and we wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else. Thank you for everything that you do, and for being such special people.
With great affection, Barbara and Mike.
Ditto and thanks for everything. Truly unique and the best! Mike
Bahamas Charter August 2019
Dear Stu and Hannah,
What an amazing vacation! Exploring the Exumas and celebrating High School Graduations. Stu, you are an excellent tour guide for finding the best snorkel spots and land adventures. Hannah, your laugh...it is infections! It makes us smile every time we hear it! And your food was amazing! You had our kids trying things they never would have eaten at home :-) We will never forget the adventures and memories made. Iguanas, turtles, sharks, caves, pigs, i think we saw a little of everything! And Exploding Kittens! We will never forget this trip or your wonderful hospitality! Thank You! Adam, Leslie, Noah, Abbey, Emma-Grace and Aaron.
BVI Charter April 2019
Dear Stu and Hannah,
It is not an exaggeration to say that you have changed our lives this week. We boarded Ohana with some trepidation about whether we would enjoy a charter cruise; we will debark today not only having extended our first cruise from 3 days to 7, but with three additional future cruises with you already booked.
Every element of our experience has been a pleasant surprise, from Hannah´s Michelin-level cuisine to he pleasures of ´deep´ underwater snorkeling, safely escorted by Stu, the expert underwater photographer. We are so appreciate your incredibly high lever of service, attention to detail, and over all kindness in accommodating our requests and making us feel completely at ease at all times. You have utterly spoiled us this week, and we are now charter cruise converts. Thank you most sincerely for absolutely everything.
Barbara and Mike
BVI Charter March 2019
Ohana-nanana, we had the best vacation ever on Ohana-nanana.
This was a trip of a lifetime and we all feel so fortunate to be able to come together on this beautiful boat with an absolutely amazing crew. Hannah and Stu are so warm, welcoming and feel part of the family. They exceeded any and all expectations and made a vacation that we will never forget. They are an amazing team, a fabulous couple and we wish them a world of health and happiness. Love The Canters.
Christmas Charter BVI 2018
Dear Stu and Hannah,
The Goodwyn gang cannot begin to thank you enough for making our Christmas vacation so absolutely unforgettable! each port exceeded our wildest expectations - from snorkeling Diamond Cay and the Bubbly Pool, to The Dogs, To Anegada where we rode scooters and caught lobsters and conch. Fishing was a highlight catching 3 Wahoo and 5 Blackfin Tuna!!!! Our tattoos from Michael Beans show lasted the whole trip!
Dinner at The Wonky Dog did not compare to anything Hannah could magically whip up onboard. Jet skiing in Leverick Bay and the tour around the outside of the island was incredible! Christmas Day spent at The Baths and Little Harbour was unsurpassable! The sub-wing, turtles, night dive and Christmas DINNER!!! (Where Hannah finally defeated us) Made all Christmases to come a hard act to follow.
Snorkeling the Indians was among the best and our hike up Norman ´mountain´ helped prepare us for the next meal! We are sad to be leaving but we cannot thank you enough for making this the trip of a lifetime!!! until next time......
P.S The boys unanimously agree Hannah can make anything taste good!

More kudos for Stu and Hannah
This is our 3rd trip we took within 11 months. The main reason for this is your amazing crew, Stu and Hannah. Every time we are on their boat the experience is amazing. From the friendly and outstanding service to the amazing food to the interactive boating experience.
My experience has beenin the hospitality industry, managing 5 star resorts, and both Stu and Hannah strive to provide the best guest experience from the moment you step on board till the moment you step off board. Truly two exceptional crew members that represent your boat very well. My wife and I cannot wait to book another trip with Stu and Hannah in the BVI.
Thankyou so much for another outstanding vacation.

Our entire family made memories with you two that will last forever. Its always a challenge to get 3 so very different young adults to have so much fun that they’ll remember it forever and you guys succeeded.
This trip went far beyond our expectations and it is because you gave us such impeccable service and so many laughs!
The food, the games, the places we saw together will forever be the fondest of memories. Thank you for that!
Good luck to an awesome couple and keep in touch! Best New Years Eve ever.
Much love The Jarvis Family.
