About Capt. Jim & Lisa Ringland

U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain Jim Ringland was born in New Hampshire and attended Northeastern University School of Engineering. He is an avid outdoors-man and while in New Hampshire enjoyed sailing, water-skiing, dirt biking, camping, and hiking. He has won awards for downhill skiing and jumping, marksmanship, swimming and business management. Jim is also a certified scuba diver.

Jim owned a successful real estate business and an automobile dealership. In his late twenties, he gave it all up to cruise the Southern Islands on a sailboat and began his career of yacht charters in 1976 in Florida and the Bahamas. After chartering as a single Captain in the Virgin Islands from 1981 to 1987, he moved back to New England to develop real estate, where he met his wife Lisa.

Born and raised in Keene, New Hampshire, Lisa attended Franklin Pierce College for Business Management and Accounting. Also an outdoor enthusiast, Lisa enjoys sailing, snorkeling, hiking and knee boarding. She is also a certified scuba diver.

Lisa's love of cooking began at an early age with a stepfather who attended the New England Culinary Institute and enjoyed passing on much of his experience to Lisa and her brother. After college, Lisa began to work for a local CPA and started her own catering service specializing in private cocktail and dinner parties in the client's home.

Captain Jim has enjoyed entertaining guests on private yacht charters since 1976 as a single captain and together with Lisa in the Virgin Islands since the fall of 1990. Their knowledge and extensive experience at navigating the waters of the Caribbean have set them apart among those offering crewed charter yachts in the Caribbean. This experience, combined with their attention to the care and needs of their chartering guests, assure a fun, relaxing vacation experience. Captain Jim and Lisa have made the Runaway one of the finest choices for anyone looking to charter a motor yacht.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jim and Lisa,



We were running around the last day and I did not have a chance to properly thank you. I have been on some charters, in many hotels, and around the world with Janice. We truly did have a wonderful time on your yacht Runaway. You and Lisa were truly professionals and a pleasure to be around. You're knowledge and ability to Capt. the yacht were flawless. Lisa's cooking was absolutely delicious. As a mate she was equally proficient. We enjoyed the yacht, it had everything you could need. You did an excellent job renovating the interior and things were working just fine. If you ever decide to become just a captain and mate working on somebody else's yacht, let me know, I might be the guy to buy that big ship for myself.



I know my friends Skip and Caryn had a delightful time as did Janice and myself. Thank you again for a very enjoyable trip. Please tell Lisa that her special personal cooking for my friends was great as well. You see, nothing to it. All my best for a wonderful new year to the both of you. Feel free to use me as a reference or contact me anytime for a personal question. As you know, I am always On. LOL.

More Than Ever Expected

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Capt Jim and Lisa. Jim and Lisa are the easiest people in the world to get along with. From the beginning you would think you have known them for years. They probably have never met a stranger. Our family of 6 adults, mother, father, son, daughterinlaw, daughter, soninlaw to be spent 8 amazing days on the Runaway. Never once did we feel like we were stumbling over each other, plenty of away places for couples and I'm not talking about the bedrooms. From breakfast to snorkeling to kayaking to floating in the pristine aqua water to lunch and rendezvous scubadiving guides to dinner, everyday was a just another day in paradise. Chef Lisa just made the best food for us. More than some of us could eat, but the majority cleared their plates. They made sure we experienced the islands the way they were meant to be experienced and if you don't really know what you want to do, Capt Jim will make sure you know what your choices are. We definitely recommend this beautiful yacht and would take this vacation again. Thank you again Jim and Lisa for your hospitality and making us feel so at home with you on the Runaway.

Couldn't have asked for more!

Jim and Lisa are exactly what we were looking for....knowledgable, kind, warm and inviting. They made us feel like we were the only clients they have ever had. Was a great chance to be together with family and enjoy a lot of time without the children glued to their phones. They absolutely loved it. Said that it was the best vacation spot we've ever been to. Jim and Lisa went over and above. Even after a brief trip, we consider them friends. Hewes Hull

Yacht Runaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent trip. The yacht is extremely clean and well maintained. The food is better than anything served elsewhere in the Caribbean. Both Jim and Lisa have great suggestions for things to do in the island, but they are happy to take you where ever you'd like to go.

Would recommend this for anyone looking for some time to relax in Paradise.

Beautiful Yacht and wonderful crew-vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

The Yacht was very well cared for and everything worked properly and was as described. The crew knew every inch of the BVI and USVI as well and moored the yacht every evening in a beautiful location. Lisa is an excellent chef and the food was delicious. They were very polite and willing to go above and beyond to make sure we had the vacation of a lifetime. They are very good at what they do. You would not be disappointed if you booked with them.

Yacht Runaway

  • 5 of 5

Our time on the yacht Runaway was unquestionably the best vacation we have ever had! Capt. Jim and Lisa Ringland are extraordinary at what they do, and they will show you the islands like you've never seen them before. The yacht is beautiful and luxurious, and the dining experience on board is better than any five star restaurant. We can't wait to back!
