Captain
Brad Marquart
Nation: USA
Born: 1981
License: STCW & 100 ton USCG Masters
Languages: English
Chef/First Mate
Kristi Marquart
Nation: USA
Born: 1985
License: STCW & 100 ton USCG Masters
Brad Marquart grew up in a small Mississippi river town in Missouri. After completing a degree in Biology at a liberal arts college it was time for some adventure, and he left the Midwest for a new life on the ocean. He joined a commercial fisheries management consultancy in Alaska, working on fishing vessels to provide precise and timely data regarding fishery health directly to NOAA. After working aboard 12 large fishing and fish processing vessels operating out of Dutch Harbor and Juneau, he traded the Bering Sea for the Rocky Mountains and moved to Denver, Colorado. There he started as a bioenergy researcher developing alternatives to mining coal, before switching gears and becoming an environmental scientist liaising between the oil and gas industry and state regulatory bodies. However, his previous life on the ocean had left a mark.

Upon meeting Kristi, the new team set out to reconnect with previous careers on the water. Denver provides perhaps the most landlocked American Sailing School in the USA, and Kristi and Brad took every class they had time for. They left Denver for the east coast where they assisted with a sailboat delivery, and then took to new careers aboard a 74 foot charter ketch here in the Virgin Islands, which led to Brad earning his USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license and moving on to operate charter catamarans. Now starting his fourth year in the term charter industry, Brad has also earned a nitrox scuba certification and enjoys sharing chef’s and guide duties with his wife. An innate naturalist, he loves identifying fish and watching their behavior. He loves life most when guiding snorkel and hiking excursions in the beautiful Virgin Islands and when winding down with our always-interesting guests after a memorable day.

Kristi Marquart has a diverse background within the charter boat and restaurant industries. Her culinary interest sparked at an early age in her family’s restaurant and brewery in Kansas, where she worked every position throughout high school and college. Eager to grow in the hospitality industry after graduating from KU, Kristi went on to manage three successful restaurant openings across the country with a company that believed in serving real food sourced from American farmers. She has always loved to cook for friends and family but it was her experience working alongside talented chefs and restaurateurs that ultimately groomed Kristi for her role as the chef aboard Sea Esta. Her cuisine style utilizes fresh ingredients that bring both color and flavor to the plate. She obtains high quality cuts of meat and locally sourced eggs, produce and seafood (when available). Her menus are made with her guests preferences in mind, and she loves the creative freedom of serving beautiful meals that become a conversation piece over the table.

Kristi also holds a USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license, a bachelors degree in environmental science, a nitrox diver certification, and ten years of experience handling various boats along the coasts of California, Georgia, South Carolina, and throughout the entire Eastern Caribbean. This is her seventh season operating charter boats out of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Kristi & Brad are honored to call Sea Esta home and will ensure your vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.

Wonderful way to ring in the new year...
What a wonderful way to bring in the new year. Great food, AWESOME drinks Kristi :-) , snorkeling (beside the barracuda), kayaking, sailing the boat and of course, watching for shooting stars! Thanks for the memories. Margaret & Hayden
Fabulous time
We had a fabulous time on board and ashore. Crew, including Kristi and Brad, were so capable, friendly, and fulfilled all our wishes for snorkeling, beautiful harbors and food and COCKTAILS. Would love to come back and experience more! We saw and did lots of new things on this charter, our 5th. The crew's knowledge of the area was especially helpful. We hate to leave but look forward to a repeat of our journey. Margaret, Mary, Haden, Moressey, Liz and Lily
New Years 2018
Kristi & Brad- Thank you! Our first catamaran experience was incredible! Your meals were delicious and your hospitality was beyond measure! We are so grateful to have started 2018 with you (our BVI/USVI family) and our family. We hope to return the hospitality in DC! Warmest regards, Heidi
January 2018
Kristi & Brad, A huge part of the enjoyment of this trip was spending time with the two of you and getting to know you. You have spoiled us with outstanding food, insightful commentary and a barrel of laughs. We have explored some of the most beautiful places in the BVIs and reached a level of relaxation I had not anticipated. You created the environment to make that all possible. I hope we have made new friends and you will stay in touch and visit where we will return your warm hospitality. -Chris
Trip of a Lifetime!
Kristi & Brad aka “Crispy” and “Siri” From start to finish, trip of a lifetime!! Family vacations can be “dicey” at times…but not on the Genesis! Great energy every day…from outstanding breakfasts to best snorkeling spots, dance offs and cannon balling at a whole new level!! Loved your particularism with our family, making everyone feel welcome and joyful!! We hope to see you again! Come to Park City and let us entertain you. Beth & Mike
Fantastic Week on Genesis
Brad & Kristi, Wow! Where to begin?! What a fantastic week it has been on Genesis. Not only is the boat spectacular, you both made me feel like I was a part of a special home and family. It was a week I could've never imagined I would have in my lifetime. Brad, your patience and insight on plans and adventures was truly remarkable. You’re an awesome guy to be around! Kristi, your culinary creativity and passion to be in the water was amazing to experience. Thank you both so much for this week in the BVI. I feel certain I have made friends for life and know that I will be back down to enjoy paradise again very soon! Much love, Paige

Guest comments provided to broker
Just wanted to take a quick minute to thank you for hooking us up with Genesis and her crew. More directly, thank you for saying you’d heard good things about Kristi and Brad because they went above and beyond to make sure we had a great week of sailing. Nothing was too trivial and their goal was always to make sure that we were having a great vacation. We’ve done a few trips similar to this one and every other crew paled in comparison. We’ll definitely be reaching out to sail with them again on future trips. Thanks again, it was a pleasure working with you. Regards, Jim
March 2018
Thanks so much for a fabulous trip to the US and BVI. You kept us safe, made sure we had lots of laughs and great fun in and on the water. We couldn't have asked for more!! Hugs to you both and hope to sail with you again in the future. Tanya & Jim

Thank you Brad & Kristi for a wonderful vacation here on the Genesis! Everything was amazing from the food to the fish. I think our favorite part of this trip was either seeing the sharks or interacting with the sea turtles. It was truly AMAZING! Also I’m pretty sure the Genesis was the best boat out there. You both are the best captains EVER!!! From the M. Family

April 2018
Kristi & Brad, Thank you so much for making our second year in the BVI's amazing! We loved exploring new islands and different hiking trails. Pirate's Bight was the ideal dinner (and lunch) spot, it couldn't have been more perfect. The boys thought snorkeling over the two shipwrecks was super cool and the girls were more than happy to be here in the beautiful weather compared to winter in Massachusetts. Thank you again for welcoming us back to your home and making this week one to remember. Looking forward to seeing you both in the future, The Oxxxxx family

Brad & Kristi, Thank you so much for this once in a lifetime experience! We had such an amazing time swimming with the dolphins, hiking to Rams Head, seeing turtles and the Bathes. You both made our trip so special! Kristi, your food was fantastic! I loved the crab cakes, the seafood bisque, and cabbage salad. Never quit cooking!!! Brad, you are a great captain! We appreciated your knowledge and stories of the area. You are also a sneaky card player! May you find happiness and joy wherever the winds take you! Love, Rob & Pat
May/June 2018
Dear Kristi & Brad, Thank you for a week we will never forget. This gave our family an opportunity to spend quality time together. Our meals were not only photogenic, but delicious! It's hard to pick a favorite spot because they were all amazing. We greatly appreciate all that you did for our family; snorkeling, Pizza Pi, different stops, etc. Not only were you our captains, but you became our friends by the end :) Best of luck to you both on your future travels! Love, the DXXXX Family
June 2018
Dear Kristi & Brad, We came aboard to celebrate our 50th Anniversary and recreate many of the memories we had in the BVI. What we did instead was make an incredible new memory. Kristi & Brad set the bar high. Their hospitality is unsurpassed. The meals are something foodies dream of; presentation unique and gorgeous. And the tastes…fresh and fabulous! They were so accommodating to our grandchildren; patient and engaging. The activities were great, well thought out and fun. Their sailing was enhanced by letting the kids learn how to sail. This has been an extraordinary experience; we can’t thank you enough. -The CXXXX
June 2018
Dear Brad & Kristi: The trip was amazing and I loved the food. I got to snorkel for the first time, ride on the raft behind the dinghy, swim with barracudas, see a sea turtle, see Captain Hook, and snorkel in caves. It has been an amazing week and I bet there are so many more highlights that I haven't named. Thank you, Hailey
July 2018
Kristi & Brad, Thank you for a wonderful week! Thanks for tolerating our odd stories and annoying habits! Thanks for taking us to four different snorkel locations in ONE DAY! The food…Amazing! Every meal delicious….every drink tasty! Thanks for teaching us games in the evening! Thanks for finding quiet remote moorings that made us feel like we were the only ones on Earth. Above all, thank you for taking care of us all week. We hope to be back! We hope you’ll have us! Love, Tim, Allison, Sarah & Grace

Brad & Kristi- Thank you so much for taking us on this adventure! We could not have asked for better hosts! Every meal was fabulous and we loved every port! Christmas with you was so special and meant a lot to spend it with you both! Please call or text if you are ever in the KC area. We would love to take you out to dinner! Thank you for showing us the more quiet areas where we would not normally get to - they were breathtaking! We really enjoyed everything and I was happy to find a sister mermaid! Until next time, best wishes and lots of love, Kristen
December 2018
B & K - We spent considerable time reviewing websites and boats available for charter. When we saw two midwestern kids captaining a boat we were interested. After we read the bios the deal was sealed. Thank you for making our trip great. You two lived up to all of our expectations. All your efforts have made lasting memories. As you go forward in life remain real and grounded. Together you can accomplish anything. Set goals and reach for the stars. Life is best when you achieve dreams together. Thank you and may God Bless. Dream Big, John & Theresa
December 2018
Brad & Kristi, I just wanted to say thank you for everything ya’ll did for us on this trip. Thank you for making us feel at home on this adventure, I really could not think of a better way to spend our Christmas vacation. Thank you for all of the conversations and stories. I am so glad we were able to spend Christmas with you. I really believe you two were the perfect hosts for this trip. Kristen and I would love to take ya’ll out for a KC dinner if ya’ll ever get back home. Thank you for introducing the family to a new game (I am sure we will play many times). Very much appreciate the time spent on the hike. Thanks again and I hope you both enjoy all your new adventures together. Also, great to find someone with the same b-day. Best Wishes, Chad
January 2019
Brad & Kristi- we can hardly imagine a more perfect introduction to the world of boating through the BVIs. From the moment we stepped on board, your gracious hospitality was apparent. Brad's calm demeanor at the helm immediately put our group of first-time sailors at ease and Kristi's culinary wizardry had us practically licking our plates after every meal. You accommodated our every request, from making a different breakfast for me each morning, to tethering Genesis to Sasha so that we could enjoy time together with our friends in the evenings. We now appreciate the challenges that process entailed so thank you so much for your willingness to make it happen. We are still in awe of how you work together as a team without ever losing your patience. Roger would have kicked me overboard before we left the marina! You were fantastic with the teens, who are now obsessed with playing Dutch Blitz! Each morning, they excitedly scanned the board to see what special drink you'd be whipping up for them later. Brad- you indulged our endless questions about "what island is that?" and "how big is that boat?" while entertaining us with tales of shipwrecks and dead movie stars. Kristi- you indulged our inner foodies with amazing meals, none of which involved Doritos. The coconut cake you made for the twins' 15th birthday was the culmination of a week of fantastic cuisine and we are still raving about the freshly squeezed margaritas and Ocean Cosmos. Thank you for treating our friends as though they were your guests, going out of the way to make them feel at home on our boat, and for taking turns hosting teen dinner parties so the adults could enjoy time together. Thank you for tolerating our obsession with Stepbrothers, tarpon wrestling, and sub-par conch blowing. We feel like we have two new friends in the world who partially get our weird sense of humor. Our door in Atlanta is always open so please come visit us so that Leslie can cook for you and Roger can clean up afterward! Love, Roger, Leslie, Grant, Ellery & Gracen
February 2019
We spent a week with family on this boat in the BVI. One of the best vacation experiences ever. The scenery was spectacular,the boat was impeccable. The experience was elevated to extraordinary thanks to the crew, Kristi and Brad. Their concern for our safety was foremost while providing a great sailing experience. The food and drinks prepared onboard were some of the best we have had, delicious and creative. It was a relaxing and wonderful vacation that I have recommended to anyone that might ask. Steve and Karen

Name: Luke Yacht: GENESIS Genesis with Brad and Kristi Marquart Charter Dates: 2019-06-02 16:00 to 2019-06-10 12:00 Area Cruised: Virgin Islands Overall Rating: 5/5 1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Absolutely! They were outstanding. 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Yes it was. Genesis being an older boat, it obviously lacked some features of newer ones but we knew that going in. The yacht was extremely clean though and well maintained. 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Yes it was. 4. Was the food good and well presented? Stellar food! Kristi did an amazing job observing the preference sheets for each individual and we all licked our plates each and every meal. 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Yes we did. It was an amazing trip and we loved being able to see all the nooks and crannies of the islands you can't see from a mega cruise ship. 6. Additional comments on your charter? I can't even begin to express how amazing our trip was with Kristi and Brad. They are the epitome of hospitality. From Kristi's meals and "drink of the day" to Brad's sailing skill and kindness, they are a class act. Each one of us in our party of six was so happy to have them host us for the week. We learned so much from them on sailing and the history of the area and they exceeded our expectations at every turn. I'm so glad we were able to snag them on Genesis before they move on to Sea Esta. I have no doubt they'll continue to see much success as their reputation grows in the Virgin Islands.

Brad & Kristi, Brad and Kristi not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. They were both extremely personable, fun, caring, spontaneous, and their top priority (aside from safety) was ensuring we had a great time, which we did. The food was absolutely phenomenal (Brad and Kristi did a wonderful job customizing the meals according to individual preferences), the overall mood and dynamic on-board was fun and relaxed, and they were ready and willing to change the itinerary according to what we wanted to do. Brad and Kristi really went above and beyond to ensure we would have a memorable vacation!! They are a wonderful crew and would highly recommend them to all our friends, and definitely would book another charter with them. The boat was great, Brad and Kristi really do a great job at maintaining the boat. It was always clean and from the moment we stepped on board, you could tell right away the boat was well cared for. It had ample space and the amenities were great. Even though the boat was in top condition, it was Brad and Kristi that really made the charter great. Thanks for helping us make the selection for another great charter! Best, Erika and Matt

Name: Larry Yacht: GENESIS with Brad & Kristi Marquart Charter Dates: 2019-07-09 12:00 to 2019-07-16 12:00 Area Cruised: Virgin Islands Overall Rating: 5/5 1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Extremely 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Yes it was 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Probably as well as it could be during the day. AC worked well when running at night. 4. Was the food good and well presented? Yes it was. 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Yes we did. 6. Additional comments on your charter? Brad and Kristi were excellent hosts and very accommodating. They took a great deal of pride in maintaining the Genesis and providing the best experience possible with it. They were very knowledgeable of the areas we sailed and the islands we visited. They were very energetic when we were up for activities and very good at allowing us down time and family time when we wanted that. In a boat where space is at a premium we never felt that the crew made it difficult to have space when we wanted it. We have tried to think of anything that the crew may have done differently to further enhance our experience and truly could not think of anything. This was our first sailing trip. We highly recommend Brad and Kristi and if we decide to sail again we will definitely reach out to them in hopes that they are available.
Holidays 2019/2020

Thank you for everything and please know you always have a place to stay in Austin, TX. We love you guys! -Susan, Reid, Sloan & Leigh

New Years 2019/2020
Brad & Kristi- Words can’t express our gratitude for everything you both did to make our trip amazing. You both are so beautiful inside and out. Your souls are (to be honest) one of the most memorable we’ve ever met - and that is incredible. When we look back at this trip, we will remember the beauty of the water and islands, but the most memorable will be the cooking and service you gave all of us. Thank you from our hearts for showing us your current home and showing us your love. If you ever need anything, we are just a call or email away. With affection, Sergio & Michael

Brad & Kristi - Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We had a fantastic time & loved getting to know you! Everything was perfect - all the great food & drink - and all those bowls of chips!! Sorry we underestimated our liquor consumption…We will do better next time! From the fantastic food, snorkeling spots, the sub-wing fun, the flamingo in the bedroom, the trip to Fallen Jerusalem, the sunrise trek in the dark, the second wedding for Ron & Eileen (thank you so much for being such wonderful participants & sharing your special champagne with us that night)! We were so happy you met us at Maho (trusted us to be there) & we loved the fact that you allowed us to blow the conch shell every sunset even though it was one of your most prized possessions. We hope to sail with you again. Love ya! Kathy, Joe, Eileen & Ron

Brad & Kristi, Wow! What an amazing trip we had on the beautiful Sea Esta! We've been on several of these sailing trips and normally head straight to the BVI's. It was such a surprise blessing to have to stay in the USVI's this time. We were able to experience a whole new world! We especially loved sailing to St. Croix, the amazing snorkeling at Buck Island, and the breathtaking sunsets from Frederiksted. We also learned that St. Thomas and St. John have many incredible stops! Brad, you are a great Captain. You know all about the islands and sea life, while also upbeat and positive, making us all feel very safe. Kristi, you are a ray of sunshine!! Between the full breakfasts, cocktail of the day and incredible meals, I'm leaving feeling very relaxed and spoiled. The two of you make a tremendous team and I can't imagine what else you could have done to make this fabulous vacation any better. Thank you for everything and I hope to sail with you again soon! Marie M.
June 2020
Brad & Kristi, You both made us feel at home from the moment we came aboard! You knew what we needed even before we asked. Having never been on a sailboat before we were so thankful for your expertise. You worked together so wonderfully and truly fit our group perfectly. The meals were top notch! We feel like we have two new friends. Thank you for making this trip so very perfect, We hope to come aboard again, but for now, we must Get goin ;) Mark & Julie S.
July 2020
Kristi & Brad, I can’t say enough amazing things about you both and our experience on Sea Esta! Y’all are so kind, talented, friendly and fun. We immediately felt welcome and relaxed from the second we stepped aboard. Thanks for being so flexible with coordinating a tandem sail so we could all be together, as well as have time apart! We hope our paths cross again and wish you so much luck and happiness in the future. Rock Chalk! -Kristy & GW P.S. Can’t wait for the cookbook! Best food ever!

Best of luck to both of you in 2021 and keep being the awesome people you are! Thanks again and much love, Aaron

Brad Marquart
Nation: USA
Born: 1981
License: STCW & 100 ton USCG Masters
Languages: English
Chef/First Mate
Kristi Marquart
Nation: USA
Born: 1985
License: STCW & 100 ton USCG Masters
Brad Marquart grew up in a small Mississippi river town in Missouri. After completing a degree in Biology at a liberal arts college it was time for some adventure, and he left the Midwest for a new life on the ocean. He joined a commercial fisheries management consultancy in Alaska, working on fishing vessels to provide precise and timely data regarding fishery health directly to NOAA. After working aboard 12 large fishing and fish processing vessels operating out of Dutch Harbor and Juneau, he traded the Bering Sea for the Rocky Mountains and moved to Denver, Colorado. There he started as a bioenergy researcher developing alternatives to mining coal, before switching gears and becoming an environmental scientist liaising between the oil and gas industry and state regulatory bodies. However, his previous life on the ocean had left a mark.

Upon meeting Kristi, the new team set out to reconnect with previous careers on the water. Denver provides perhaps the most landlocked American Sailing School in the USA, and Kristi and Brad took every class they had time for. They left Denver for the east coast where they assisted with a sailboat delivery, and then took to new careers aboard a 74 foot charter ketch here in the Virgin Islands, which led to Brad earning his USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license and moving on to operate charter catamarans. Now starting his fourth year in the term charter industry, Brad has also earned a nitrox scuba certification and enjoys sharing chef’s and guide duties with his wife. An innate naturalist, he loves identifying fish and watching their behavior. He loves life most when guiding snorkel and hiking excursions in the beautiful Virgin Islands and when winding down with our always-interesting guests after a memorable day.

Kristi Marquart has a diverse background within the charter boat and restaurant industries. Her culinary interest sparked at an early age in her family’s restaurant and brewery in Kansas, where she worked every position throughout high school and college. Eager to grow in the hospitality industry after graduating from KU, Kristi went on to manage three successful restaurant openings across the country with a company that believed in serving real food sourced from American farmers. She has always loved to cook for friends and family but it was her experience working alongside talented chefs and restaurateurs that ultimately groomed Kristi for her role as the chef aboard Sea Esta. Her cuisine style utilizes fresh ingredients that bring both color and flavor to the plate. She obtains high quality cuts of meat and locally sourced eggs, produce and seafood (when available). Her menus are made with her guests preferences in mind, and she loves the creative freedom of serving beautiful meals that become a conversation piece over the table.

Kristi also holds a USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license, a bachelors degree in environmental science, a nitrox diver certification, and ten years of experience handling various boats along the coasts of California, Georgia, South Carolina, and throughout the entire Eastern Caribbean. This is her seventh season operating charter boats out of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Kristi & Brad are honored to call Sea Esta home and will ensure your vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.

Fabulous time
We had a fabulous time on board and ashore. Crew, including Kristi and Brad, were so capable, friendly, and fulfilled all our wishes for snorkeling, beautiful harbors and food and COCKTAILS. Would love to come back and experience more! We saw and did lots of new things on this charter, our 5th. The crew's knowledge of the area was especially helpful. We hate to leave but look forward to a repeat of our journey. Margaret, Mary, Haden, Moressey, Liz and Lily

Kristi & Brad- Thank you! Our first catamaran experience was incredible! Your meals were delicious and your hospitality was beyond measure! We are so grateful to have started 2018 with you (our BVI/USVI family) and our family. We hope to return the hospitality in DC! Warmest regards, Heidi
January 2018
Kristi & Brad, A huge part of the enjoyment of this trip was spending time with the two of you and getting to know you. You have spoiled us with outstanding food, insightful commentary and a barrel of laughs. We have explored some of the most beautiful places in the BVIs and reached a level of relaxation I had not anticipated. You created the environment to make that all possible. I hope we have made new friends and you will stay in touch and visit where we will return your warm hospitality. -Chris
Trip of a Lifetime!
Kristi & Brad aka “Crispy” and “Siri” From start to finish, trip of a lifetime!! Family vacations can be “dicey” at times…but not on the Genesis! Great energy every day…from outstanding breakfasts to best snorkeling spots, dance offs and cannon balling at a whole new level!! Loved your particularism with our family, making everyone feel welcome and joyful!! We hope to see you again! Come to Park City and let us entertain you. Beth & Mike
Fantastic Week on Genesis
Brad & Kristi, Wow! Where to begin?! What a fantastic week it has been on Genesis. Not only is the boat spectacular, you both made me feel like I was a part of a special home and family. It was a week I could've never imagined I would have in my lifetime. Brad, your patience and insight on plans and adventures was truly remarkable. You’re an awesome guy to be around! Kristi, your culinary creativity and passion to be in the water was amazing to experience. Thank you both so much for this week in the BVI. I feel certain I have made friends for life and know that I will be back down to enjoy paradise again very soon! Much love, Paige

Guest comments provided to broker
Just wanted to take a quick minute to thank you for hooking us up with Genesis and her crew. More directly, thank you for saying you’d heard good things about Kristi and Brad because they went above and beyond to make sure we had a great week of sailing. Nothing was too trivial and their goal was always to make sure that we were having a great vacation. We’ve done a few trips similar to this one and every other crew paled in comparison. We’ll definitely be reaching out to sail with them again on future trips. Thanks again, it was a pleasure working with you. Regards, Jim
March 2018
Thanks so much for a fabulous trip to the US and BVI. You kept us safe, made sure we had lots of laughs and great fun in and on the water. We couldn't have asked for more!! Hugs to you both and hope to sail with you again in the future. Tanya & Jim

Thank you Brad & Kristi for a wonderful vacation here on the Genesis! Everything was amazing from the food to the fish. I think our favorite part of this trip was either seeing the sharks or interacting with the sea turtles. It was truly AMAZING! Also I’m pretty sure the Genesis was the best boat out there. You both are the best captains EVER!!! From the M. Family

Kristi & Brad, Thank you so much for making our second year in the BVI's amazing! We loved exploring new islands and different hiking trails. Pirate's Bight was the ideal dinner (and lunch) spot, it couldn't have been more perfect. The boys thought snorkeling over the two shipwrecks was super cool and the girls were more than happy to be here in the beautiful weather compared to winter in Massachusetts. Thank you again for welcoming us back to your home and making this week one to remember. Looking forward to seeing you both in the future, The Oxxxxx family

April 2018
Brad & Kristi, Thank you so much for this once in a lifetime experience! We had such an amazing time swimming with the dolphins, hiking to Rams Head, seeing turtles and the Bathes. You both made our trip so special! Kristi, your food was fantastic! I loved the crab cakes, the seafood bisque, and cabbage salad. Never quit cooking!!! Brad, you are a great captain! We appreciated your knowledge and stories of the area. You are also a sneaky card player! May you find happiness and joy wherever the winds take you! Love, Rob & Pat
May/June 2018
Dear Kristi & Brad, Thank you for a week we will never forget. This gave our family an opportunity to spend quality time together. Our meals were not only photogenic, but delicious! It's hard to pick a favorite spot because they were all amazing. We greatly appreciate all that you did for our family; snorkeling, Pizza Pi, different stops, etc. Not only were you our captains, but you became our friends by the end :) Best of luck to you both on your future travels! Love, the DXXXX Family

Dear Kristi & Brad, We came aboard to celebrate our 50th Anniversary and recreate many of the memories we had in the BVI. What we did instead was make an incredible new memory. Kristi & Brad set the bar high. Their hospitality is unsurpassed. The meals are something foodies dream of; presentation unique and gorgeous. And the tastes…fresh and fabulous! They were so accommodating to our grandchildren; patient and engaging. The activities were great, well thought out and fun. Their sailing was enhanced by letting the kids learn how to sail. This has been an extraordinary experience; we can’t thank you enough. -The CXXXX

Dear Brad & Kristi: The trip was amazing and I loved the food. I got to snorkel for the first time, ride on the raft behind the dinghy, swim with barracudas, see a sea turtle, see Captain Hook, and snorkel in caves. It has been an amazing week and I bet there are so many more highlights that I haven't named. Thank you, Hailey
July 2018
Kristi & Brad, Thank you for a wonderful week! Thanks for tolerating our odd stories and annoying habits! Thanks for taking us to four different snorkel locations in ONE DAY! The food…Amazing! Every meal delicious….every drink tasty! Thanks for teaching us games in the evening! Thanks for finding quiet remote moorings that made us feel like we were the only ones on Earth. Above all, thank you for taking care of us all week. We hope to be back! We hope you’ll have us! Love, Tim, Allison, Sarah & Grace

Brad & Kristi- Thank you so much for taking us on this adventure! We could not have asked for better hosts! Every meal was fabulous and we loved every port! Christmas with you was so special and meant a lot to spend it with you both! Please call or text if you are ever in the KC area. We would love to take you out to dinner! Thank you for showing us the more quiet areas where we would not normally get to - they were breathtaking! We really enjoyed everything and I was happy to find a sister mermaid! Until next time, best wishes and lots of love, Kristen
December 2018
B & K - We spent considerable time reviewing websites and boats available for charter. When we saw two midwestern kids captaining a boat we were interested. After we read the bios the deal was sealed. Thank you for making our trip great. You two lived up to all of our expectations. All your efforts have made lasting memories. As you go forward in life remain real and grounded. Together you can accomplish anything. Set goals and reach for the stars. Life is best when you achieve dreams together. Thank you and may God Bless. Dream Big, John & Theresa
December 2018
Brad & Kristi, I just wanted to say thank you for everything ya’ll did for us on this trip. Thank you for making us feel at home on this adventure, I really could not think of a better way to spend our Christmas vacation. Thank you for all of the conversations and stories. I am so glad we were able to spend Christmas with you. I really believe you two were the perfect hosts for this trip. Kristen and I would love to take ya’ll out for a KC dinner if ya’ll ever get back home. Thank you for introducing the family to a new game (I am sure we will play many times). Very much appreciate the time spent on the hike. Thanks again and I hope you both enjoy all your new adventures together. Also, great to find someone with the same b-day. Best Wishes, Chad

Brad & Kristi- we can hardly imagine a more perfect introduction to the world of boating through the BVIs. From the moment we stepped on board, your gracious hospitality was apparent. Brad's calm demeanor at the helm immediately put our group of first-time sailors at ease and Kristi's culinary wizardry had us practically licking our plates after every meal. You accommodated our every request, from making a different breakfast for me each morning, to tethering Genesis to Sasha so that we could enjoy time together with our friends in the evenings. We now appreciate the challenges that process entailed so thank you so much for your willingness to make it happen. We are still in awe of how you work together as a team without ever losing your patience. Roger would have kicked me overboard before we left the marina! You were fantastic with the teens, who are now obsessed with playing Dutch Blitz! Each morning, they excitedly scanned the board to see what special drink you'd be whipping up for them later. Brad- you indulged our endless questions about "what island is that?" and "how big is that boat?" while entertaining us with tales of shipwrecks and dead movie stars. Kristi- you indulged our inner foodies with amazing meals, none of which involved Doritos. The coconut cake you made for the twins' 15th birthday was the culmination of a week of fantastic cuisine and we are still raving about the freshly squeezed margaritas and Ocean Cosmos. Thank you for treating our friends as though they were your guests, going out of the way to make them feel at home on our boat, and for taking turns hosting teen dinner parties so the adults could enjoy time together. Thank you for tolerating our obsession with Stepbrothers, tarpon wrestling, and sub-par conch blowing. We feel like we have two new friends in the world who partially get our weird sense of humor. Our door in Atlanta is always open so please come visit us so that Leslie can cook for you and Roger can clean up afterward! Love, Roger, Leslie, Grant, Ellery & Gracen

We spent a week with family on this boat in the BVI. One of the best vacation experiences ever. The scenery was spectacular,the boat was impeccable. The experience was elevated to extraordinary thanks to the crew, Kristi and Brad. Their concern for our safety was foremost while providing a great sailing experience. The food and drinks prepared onboard were some of the best we have had, delicious and creative. It was a relaxing and wonderful vacation that I have recommended to anyone that might ask. Steve and Karen

Dear Kristi & Brad, THIS IS AWESOME! Hip-Hip-HOORAY! And all the other cheers for you two sharing this wonderful experience with the B*****t family. A week of wonder: sea turtles, white beaches, sunset hikes, big fish caught, and happy little boys. The delicious food was second to no restaurant and we always felt we were in the care of very competent captaining. It is our true hope that we will keep in touch and that our lives may overlap in the future. Thank you for a most memorable trip. Much love, Bill, Annika, Hunter, Luke & Blaise

Name: Luke Yacht: GENESIS Genesis with Brad and Kristi Marquart Charter Dates: 2019-06-02 16:00 to 2019-06-10 12:00 Area Cruised: Virgin Islands Overall Rating: 5/5 1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Absolutely! They were outstanding. 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Yes it was. Genesis being an older boat, it obviously lacked some features of newer ones but we knew that going in. The yacht was extremely clean though and well maintained. 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Yes it was. 4. Was the food good and well presented? Stellar food! Kristi did an amazing job observing the preference sheets for each individual and we all licked our plates each and every meal. 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Yes we did. It was an amazing trip and we loved being able to see all the nooks and crannies of the islands you can't see from a mega cruise ship. 6. Additional comments on your charter? I can't even begin to express how amazing our trip was with Kristi and Brad. They are the epitome of hospitality. From Kristi's meals and "drink of the day" to Brad's sailing skill and kindness, they are a class act. Each one of us in our party of six was so happy to have them host us for the week. We learned so much from them on sailing and the history of the area and they exceeded our expectations at every turn. I'm so glad we were able to snag them on Genesis before they move on to Sea Esta. I have no doubt they'll continue to see much success as their reputation grows in the Virgin Islands.

Kristi & Brad-”skis” Thank you, thank you for an amazing week. We truly appreciate your hospitality and making us feel so welcome. Kristi - your culinary skills are out of this world! We can’t think of anything that would have made this week any better... All the adventures we’ll carry with us and it was awesome doing and seeing different spots - especially Fallen Jerusalem! Again- thank you for one of the best weeks this year... You guys are the best! Heather & Tanya
July 2019
Brad & Kristi, Brad and Kristi not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. They were both extremely personable, fun, caring, spontaneous, and their top priority (aside from safety) was ensuring we had a great time, which we did. The food was absolutely phenomenal (Brad and Kristi did a wonderful job customizing the meals according to individual preferences), the overall mood and dynamic on-board was fun and relaxed, and they were ready and willing to change the itinerary according to what we wanted to do. Brad and Kristi really went above and beyond to ensure we would have a memorable vacation!! They are a wonderful crew and would highly recommend them to all our friends, and definitely would book another charter with them. The boat was great, Brad and Kristi really do a great job at maintaining the boat. It was always clean and from the moment we stepped on board, you could tell right away the boat was well cared for. It had ample space and the amenities were great. Even though the boat was in top condition, it was Brad and Kristi that really made the charter great. Thanks for helping us make the selection for another great charter! Best, Erika and Matt

Name: Larry Yacht: GENESIS with Brad & Kristi Marquart Charter Dates: 2019-07-09 12:00 to 2019-07-16 12:00 Area Cruised: Virgin Islands Overall Rating: 5/5 1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Extremely 2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean? Yes it was 3. Was the yacht well ventilated? Probably as well as it could be during the day. AC worked well when running at night. 4. Was the food good and well presented? Yes it was. 5. Did you like the area you sailed? Yes we did. 6. Additional comments on your charter? Brad and Kristi were excellent hosts and very accommodating. They took a great deal of pride in maintaining the Genesis and providing the best experience possible with it. They were very knowledgeable of the areas we sailed and the islands we visited. They were very energetic when we were up for activities and very good at allowing us down time and family time when we wanted that. In a boat where space is at a premium we never felt that the crew made it difficult to have space when we wanted it. We have tried to think of anything that the crew may have done differently to further enhance our experience and truly could not think of anything. This was our first sailing trip. We highly recommend Brad and Kristi and if we decide to sail again we will definitely reach out to them in hopes that they are available.

New Years 2019/2020
Brad & Kristi- Words can’t express our gratitude for everything you both did to make our trip amazing. You both are so beautiful inside and out. Your souls are (to be honest) one of the most memorable we’ve ever met - and that is incredible. When we look back at this trip, we will remember the beauty of the water and islands, but the most memorable will be the cooking and service you gave all of us. Thank you from our hearts for showing us your current home and showing us your love. If you ever need anything, we are just a call or email away. With affection, Sergio & Michael
January 2020
Brad & Kristi - Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We had a fantastic time & loved getting to know you! Everything was perfect - all the great food & drink - and all those bowls of chips!! Sorry we underestimated our liquor consumption…We will do better next time! From the fantastic food, snorkeling spots, the sub-wing fun, the flamingo in the bedroom, the trip to Fallen Jerusalem, the sunrise trek in the dark, the second wedding for Ron & Eileen (thank you so much for being such wonderful participants & sharing your special champagne with us that night)! We were so happy you met us at Maho (trusted us to be there) & we loved the fact that you allowed us to blow the conch shell every sunset even though it was one of your most prized possessions. We hope to sail with you again. Love ya! Kathy, Joe, Eileen & Ron

June 2020
Brad & Kristi, Wow! What an amazing trip we had on the beautiful Sea Esta! We've been on several of these sailing trips and normally head straight to the BVI's. It was such a surprise blessing to have to stay in the USVI's this time. We were able to experience a whole new world! We especially loved sailing to St. Croix, the amazing snorkeling at Buck Island, and the breathtaking sunsets from Frederiksted. We also learned that St. Thomas and St. John have many incredible stops! Brad, you are a great Captain. You know all about the islands and sea life, while also upbeat and positive, making us all feel very safe. Kristi, you are a ray of sunshine!! Between the full breakfasts, cocktail of the day and incredible meals, I'm leaving feeling very relaxed and spoiled. The two of you make a tremendous team and I can't imagine what else you could have done to make this fabulous vacation any better. Thank you for everything and I hope to sail with you again soon! Marie M.
June 2020
Brad & Kristi, You both made us feel at home from the moment we came aboard! You knew what we needed even before we asked. Having never been on a sailboat before we were so thankful for your expertise. You worked together so wonderfully and truly fit our group perfectly. The meals were top notch! We feel like we have two new friends. Thank you for making this trip so very perfect, We hope to come aboard again, but for now, we must Get goin ;) Mark & Julie S.
