Matt Talmage

Matt was born in the UK and learnt to sail along the UK coast with many trips to France and the UK Channel iIslands before getting the break to become a charter captain around the Greek Islands. After a few seasons there he returned to the UK but by then he had been spoiled with sailing in warmer waters and the colder UK weather didn′t cut it! In 2016 he found an opportunity to work in the BVI as a captain and sailing instructor so he jumped at the chance! When Covid hit he took a yacht delivery job up to Florida where he met his beautiful wife and they have since settled back down in the Islands together. Matt holds a RYA Yachtmaster as well as USCG credentials. In his spare time he enjoys diving for lobster and relaxing on the beach.

Jana Talmage

Jana is originally from Florida′s East coast and grew up alongside the water and beautiful beaches. She trained as a Master Stylist and worked for 18 years as a hair stylist in the Orlando area before meeting her husband Matt by chance when a restaurant only had shared tables available for lunch! After getting married on one of St John′s beaches they decided to move to St Thomas at the end of 2021 and have worked together as a team on boats delivering fantastic food and service. Last summer Matt & Jana ran a few charters in Greece and the Mediterranean style has inspired her menu and dishes. In her spare time Jana loves to walk along the beaches on the lookout to increase her sea glass collection.

Oui Cherie Guest Reviews

July 2023

Jana and Matt, we were planning this trip a long time ago, we are so blessed and lucky to have been with such a great crew like you are. The best chef Jana and a great captain. You both are the best of the best, you are patient, welcoming, always taking care of all the small details that made this adventure even better.

July 2023

Aren´t we lucky! Jana you food was amazing. It is the cherry on top. My kids enjoyed every part of it. Looking forward to the next, your friends Esthor, Sergio, Alexa and Maximo.

July 2023

Thank you for a superb trip. The cooking, caring, guidance and patience with my boys was outstanding. I appreciate your adaptability. We loved our boat and island time. You made us feel welcome and comfortable. This was an amazing adventure and we hope to do it again!

July 2023

Dear Chef Jana and dear Capt. Matt,

Thank you for welcoming us aboard. Aren´t we lucky with your cheerful kindness and gracious hospitality! Thank you for making every single minute of our stay an incredible experience! We won´t forget these delightful, fabulous, amazing days and we especially won´t forget Chef Jana´s delicious cooking and marvelous presentation and Capt. Matt´s impressively skillful handling of the boat. Everything was above and beyond and we can´t wait to come back! With heartfelt gratitude to our new friends!

June 2023

Matt and Jana, although it is tempting to give top billing to the enchanting chef/first mate Jana, it is the seamless manning that Capt. Matt performs the operation of the vessel that makes this extraordinary experience just that - extraordinary. The series of excursions and diversions makes 7 days seem twice as long. The dining from breakfast to dinner, desserts is a deeply memorable series of delights. It would be difficult to imaging two more delightful souls to guide and pamper their guests through an utterly unforgettable experience. Thank you so much!

May 2023

Capt Matt - Your superb handing of the boat was very comforting and extremely capable. Not once did anything seem rushed or worrisome. Your knowledge of all of our excursions and the details for us in a foreign place. Your conversation was easy and again very knowledgable. Thank you for making this bucket list item such a pleasure!

Chef Jana - oh man, but your creative meals was top shelf. You charmed us with colorful and delightful, healthy and flavorful food! Beginning with imaginative starters to dangerously delicious desserts. You were kind and thorough in your service and I appreciate our side conversations! You two make an effective and amazingly fun team. With gratitude, Lisa B.

May 2023

Captain Matt and Chef/Best Mate Jana, we have absolutely enjoyed our time onboard! You knowledge of the islands and oceans are extraordinary! Thank you for showing us many memorable places, above water and below! Everything was perfect and we couldn´t have asked for anything more. The meals have been wonderful! You presentations were not only appealing to the eyes, everything was delicious! We are so very happy with our trip!

April 2023

Chef jana and Capt. Matt,

Thank you for this once in a lifetime adventure. The trip has been everything we hoped for and more. St. Thomas and St. John´s are truly paradise! I wish time would have stand still so we won´t have to say good-bye. Until next time - our sincerest thanks! P.S. the food was beyond amazing! Jana you´re an excellent chef!
