Reach Crew Profile
MEET THE CREW:
Captain: David Stanley
Chef/First Mate: Naomi Timms
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, David developed an insatiable taste for travel and the ocean. Growing up over a large variety of locations, he managed to explore various different parts of his home country, discovering quickly that each place has its own unique magic, culture and people. He always managed to find himself back in Cape Town for large portions of the year, spending time snorkeling, swimming and enjoying the South African coast.
At the age of 14, David traveled to Mauritius for his first overseas trip and spent weeks on the water learning about water-skiing, marine wildlife and power boats. This prompted a further desire to see the world and travel. A few years later, having worked as a cocktail bartender for some time, he moved to the UK to hone his craft, finding work in one of London’s oldest pubs and learning from some incredible “sipsmiths”. He’s a classic cocktail fanatic and never turns down the opportunity to create something new and fun.
In 2019, David packed up all his belongings, sold his car and decided that the sea was his home. He began sailing commercially in Croatia and Greece for the flotilla company “The Yacht Week”, learning plenty from the yachts and the many guests he’s worked with. Creating many connections and friends along the way.
A fun-loving, free-spirited young man, David always enjoys sparking up a conversation and showing his peers/guests the ropes of sailing.
Naomi grew up in the UK and has enjoyed cooking from a young age. She fell in love with baking when she was young and ever since has taken pride in baking sweet treats for friends and family’s birthdays and events. She would also find great joy in creating beautiful spreads at any opportunity and loves hosting dinner parties with friends. Her dream has always been to travel the world, and to have the opportunity to meet new people and learn about their cultures.
She studied Environmental Science at university and is passionate about marine conservation and ecology. Her love for sailing sparked when she took part in a marine conservation expedition aboard a tall ship. During this trip she learned classic sailing techniques and worked with professionals to learn about the conservation of marine wildlife.
Naomi has worked in the hospitality for the past 8 years, she has worked in fine dining restaurants, cocktail bars, and catered for events and weddings. She decided that cooking on yachts was a perfect mixture of the two things she loves doing the most - which is when she decided to leave her hospitality job at home to work as a chef for a large flotilla company in the Mediterranean. She has worked on sailing yachts in Croatia, Greece, Antigua, and the BVI’s.
In her free time, Naomi loves exploring, hiking, surfing and paddleboarding.
She is passionate about cooking fresh, sustainable, and wholesome food created with seasonal ingredients - and loves catering for the specific needs of the group that she is working with, to ensure they have the best experience possible.
David and Naomi are eager to welcome you aboard REACH and give you the most memorable vacation experience ever in the Virgin Islands.

Reach Guest Reviews
Deeply Appreciate You Both!
We met the crew in the harbor at St Thomas . We had never done anything like this and to be honest we were super nervous about being on a boat with two strangers …and with our two teenagers who might not get along with …anybody!
From the moment we met David who helped us with bags, we felt a great connection. He was so friendly, outgoing and capable. While loading the first day, Naomi (his better half) greeted us with cocktails and a beautiful spread of snacks and food. The days and nights that proceeded were absolutely wonderful -it’s very hard to put into words but we had David and Naomi create a first class experience. They secured all bookings with the dinners ahead of time, booked the best spots to moor in the evenings, gave us rides back and forth to bars and shops we wanted to go to and always made sure we were safe and never had questions.
Naomi was a first class chef - she was a master of the culinary arts. Every meal was prepared at time when we wanted. It was pleasing to the eye and flavorful. Naomi is so sweet and pleasant -she was like a sister to my wife and a great (almost big sister to the boys) person for us to hang out with!
David was a perfect captain. Although he (both) was so much younger than us, we were so impressed with his knowledge of charts, wind and passage around the islands. He also traveled us around on the tender and became quite close to the boys telling tales of island history, plans for the day (breakfast briefing :) and making sure the water sports went off without a hitch!
We were so glad that they played cards with us-SEQUENCE and dominoes about every evening. We played other games as we traveled so it made it so fun for the boys (we restricted their phones for this trip…and made it waaaaay better )
Daivd and Naomi are some of the best people we have encountered in life - kind, caring, mature, trusting and knowledgeable. I had no worries whatsoever leaving the kids to snorkel or hike with my wife. They are truly great people. We came as a family and left with a bigger family . We LOVE REACH and we love our new friends even more!
It was a 5/5 star experience for us-we will be back sailing in the BVI and we would only do it with David and Naomi. Deeply appreciate you both !
Such an Awesome Crew - Best Family Vacation
Our family of 4 (kids are 12 and 14) had the best time onboard REACH with Dave and Naomi! We’ve been to the BVIs a few times before, but exploring the islands on the amazing 50’ catamaran with SUCH AN AWESOME CREW was absolutely the BEST!! We were able to explore BEAUTIFUL bays, EXCITING snorkeling and swimming spots (Maho Bay (STJ), Indians, Baths, Anegada, Caneel Bay (STJ)), and FAVORITE hot spots (Willy Ts, CocoMaya, Soggy Dollar), just to name a few!
REACH was such an amazing boat with space to chill and socialize! The flybridge was SO great to feel the breeze while sailing. We even learned a few sailing tips from Dave on our trip to/from Anegada! We also took advantage of the comfortable trampoline with bean bags and seating area on the bow. Plenty of space for full sun, full shade, or a mix of both!
REACH had loads of activities as well. The adults enjoyed lounging on the floating mat and paddle boards while the kids loved the sea scooters, tubing and knee boarding! The entire boat had plenty of space especially in the master cabin PLUS each kid had their own cabin with queen bed and bathroom.
The BEST part of our trip was the CREW! Dave and Naomi provided such a welcoming and relaxing environment for our entire family. They work so well together with such fun energy!
Dave planned a route that EXCEEDED all our wishes! He even found a way to accommodate water activities for the kids on the afternoon when mom and dad stayed a little longer at Soggy Dollar, making everyone HAPPY!! Each day, we landed in bays with great views and snorkeling. We were able to see turtles, rays, and loads of various fish, as well as amazing coral! He provided sailing tips for the adults with both of us taking the helm for a bit PLUS he was constantly entertaining the kids with fun activities!
Naomi was SO sweet and such an AMAZING chef! We love exhilarating food experiences and Naomi’s meals are WELL BEYOND 5 STARS!! She was able to create the most EXQUISITE meals accommodating the family’s food intolerances and preferences! Every meal was VISUALLY STUNNING and ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Our favorites were the stuffed pasta shells, pad thai and handmade spring rolls, beef short ribs, and poke bowls! We also loved the cocktails from both Dave and Naomi, especially the WONDERFUL surprise cocktails at cocktail hour!!
It was SO FUN hanging out with both Dave and Naomi and learning more about them! A few fun quotes from the trip (albeit some of these are inside jokes):
I LIKE TURTLES!!
YOU LOOK NICE! YOU LOOK LIKE YOU LIKE CHICKEN AND RICE!!
THIS DOESN’T SUCK!!
Thank you DAVE and NAOMI for making our first (but definitely not our last) family yacht charter such a MEMORABLE experience! We will miss you until we meet again!
What can we say but WOW!! That was a fantastic initiation into The BVI’s, REACH and the amazing and professional treatment we received from both of you!! The handling of all the details, including sailing and introductions to the different destinations, water sports, the timely refreshments and of course the delicious Naomi 5 star meals!
Our night out at SABA ROCK was like one big family and we enjoyed learning more about the two of you. Tyler and I will never forget our birthdays!
David was the best captain ever! Not only is he very passionate and good at what he does, but he was an awesome person to get to know and hang out with for a week. Highest recommendation.
Naomi was an excellent hostess - she’s a fun, bubbly and very hard working person. The food we had all week was delicious and varied - we were greeted with beautiful spreads at every meal and a great selection of different dishes. Naomi had a great presence on the boat and she was always busy with a smile, she made us feel very welcome on the boat and we were very well looked after.
Dave and Naomi wer 11/10
Dave was an absolute gem, legend, and expert navigator. He made us feel very safe and comfortable, and managed every situation with calmness. While he was serious about safety, he also ensured that we had heaps of fun on and off the boats. I will 100% book him specifically next time I’m on charter.
Naomi could not have provided a better experience for me and tour group. Every meal was picturesque, our boat was squeaky clean every single morning, and she was always on lookout to make sure the group was safe at all times. We had Michelin level food all week while she had fun with us, cooked, cleaned and took care of everyone.
Dave & Naomi were 11/10.
Massive Amounts of Fun
Dave was an amazing captain! He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure to keep us up to date with what was going on. And he was also massive amounts of fun to be around all week long!
Naomi was the absolute best hostess and exceeded all of my expectations! All of her food was incredible. She made us a huge variety of fantastic dishes and accommodated any of our crew’s dietary restrictions. She was so friendly from the very start of our journey and always helped us to feel at home on our boat!
