Oil Nut Bay developer and Chairman of Victor International Corporation, David V. Johnson, not only set out to create an exclusive collection of properties for those who dreamed of a luxury lifestyle in the Caribbean, but also envisioned a place that he himself would call home. Johnson’s decade-long search for an idyllic locale for Oil Nut Bay speaks to his personal investment in the distinctive community—an investment that goes well beyond lending his name and artful expertise and is, instead, rooted in the dream of creating a distinctive home base in a sustainable, private island paradise.

Our visionary team of top-tier industry experts represents the core of the Oil Nut Bay experience. From our executive group to our employees, our team remains steadfast in its commitment to provide our clients with a level of service that is commensurate with the development itself. We feel fortunate for the opportunity to work on-site, interacting with the most unique clientele in the most spectacular locale in the world. Maintaining a sustainable luxury resort community that exists in harmony with Virgin Gorda’s natural environment, and that also meets the distinct needs of our residents and guests, is at the forefront of our mission. Our impeccable team is dedicated to helping our clients create lasting memories and treasured experiences here at Oil Nut Bay.


Johnson’s longtime legacy of building artfully designed developments and communities has culminated in his vision for Oil Nut Bay—a vision to create a development of luxury homes built in harmony with the natural beauty of the Caribbean. With forty years of industry-leading experience and forty development properties to his name, Johnson has brought Oil Nut Bay to life with meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to maintain the environmental integrity of the land on which Oil Nut Bay sits. The fusion of exquisite architectural planning with the natural majesty of the island sets Oil Nut Bay apart from other developments and delineates it as a community that is unmatched in luxury in this part of the world.

A NEW latitude.

In 2021, Oil Nut Bay and Corcoran announced a partnership to launch a world-class real estate franchise, Corcoran BVI. This becomes the brand’s tenth affiliate — and its first global presence. “It’s a badge we wear with great pride,” says David V. Johnson. “We knew aligning with Corcoran was the right choice because of its growing market position, the synergy between our lifestyle brands, and its spectacular leadership,” Johnson adds. “We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”

AN INSPIRED masterpiece

David V. Johnson, chairman of Victor International Corporation and the creative mastermind behind Oil Nut Bay, spent ten years touring the world in search of the perfect locale for his exclusive community of luxury homes to complement his developments in the United States. Enchanted by the character and stability of the British Virgin Islands, along with the privacy, security, and idyllic nature of the North Sound, Johnson selected Virgin Gorda as the home of Oil Nut Bay—the masterpiece of his career.


David V. Johnson has made Oil Nut Bay his home, building his own personal residence on the island, and invites you to do the same in a place where everyday experiences become treasured lifetime memories.


Johnson is being recognized for pioneering over 43 luxury master-planned communities and resorts with a mission to form living and working environments in ecological harmony with the land.
