Crew

Captain: Brad Marquart

Nationality: USA

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. Now starting his third year in the term charter industry, Brad has obtained his USCG Captain’s license, nitrox scuba certification and enjoys sharing chef’s and guide duties with his wife aboard Genesis. 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 orientation developed at an early age in her family’s restaurant and brewery in Kansas, where throughout high school and college she worked in both the kitchen and front-of-house. Following her interest in hospitality after college, she went on to open three successful restaurants across the country. Over the course of her restaurant career she managed talented teams of chefs and front-of-house staff, led courses in mixology, wine, and food safety, and became a certified Cicerone.



Kristi has always loved to cook for small groups of friends but it was her experiences in the restaurant industry that ultimately groomed her for her role as the chef aboard Genesis. Her cuisine style utilizes fresh ingredients that bring both color and flavor to the plate. She obtains high quality cuts of meat, 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 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 sixth season operating charter boats out of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Kristi & Brad are honored to call Genesis home and will ensure your vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.


Reviews:

January 2020
My husband and I have been in the hospitality business our entire lives and my husband is currently COO of Westchester Country Club outside of New York City. We both have worked for major hotels, catering and clubs throughout the United States, so we appreciate great hospitality when we receive it.

Many years ago, when our children were very young, my husband and I were invited to sail in the BVI’s with another family and thoroughly enjoyed our adult adventure. As our children got older, we made a commitment to spend time each year exploring new and exciting parts of the world. With two teenaged children, and a very busy schedule we treasure the time we can spend together. We made a decision to take our children sailing and would like to share what has turned out to be one of the best experiences we ever had.

We booked through a charter company for a January visit and were all ready when approximately two weeks before the trip, we received a phone call from the charter company informing us the Captain and First Mate were not going to be able to sail due to personal reasons. They assured us they had found a suitable replacement and all would be fine. They told us Ken Fisher and Jane Troop would be flying in to take over our charter. Little did we know what a blessing this would turn out to be!

Let me go on record saying we are not sailors. We are adventuresome, but wanted our Captain to explore and show us what the BVI’s had to offer. We had one commitment for New Year’s Eve, other than that, we were flexible.

Jane and Ken met us and immediately it was very clear that they were going to make this adventure special. Ken would sit with us and map out suggested routes daily, places to drop anchor and snorkel, swim, islands to visit and trails to take! He knew the islands so well, and not just the “popular” destinations. We really felt as though we got to know the BVI’s like locals.

Jane was an expert in the galley! She had the freshest of fruits and vegetables, was creative with every menu, very cognizant of dietary restrictions and our likes and dislikes! The food was unbelievable, and plentiful!

Most importantly to us, was the friendship we felt sailing with Jane and Ken. They were aware of giving us our privacy and space, but very quickly we felt as though we were sailing with family. Ken was willing to teach us as much or as little as we wanted about sailing and the islands. They were so much fun to be around that we just couldn’t have asked for a more accommodating and professional crew!

It is our hope to again have an opportunity to take another adventure sailing, and without question, we will be reaching out to make sure Ken and Jane are available! They are the perfect combination in this business, professional, creative, hospitable, and a pleasure and joy to sail with! They are an asset to the business and have our highest recommendation.

Cheers and Happy Sailing!
Kimberly and Tom

We would like to thank you & Ken for the amazing vacation we spent with you on your vessel. I want to especially comment on a few important things:

1. Ken’s skill as a captain is top notch. We always felt safe, and enjoyed the fact that we sailed everyday, both sails out, clipping along at very high knots! It was so exciting and exhilarating! It was also fun to learn a bit about sailing, and be able to assist with some of the jobs! And on top of all that, Ken always had a nice fresh pot of hot coffee ready for us upon waking up each morning!
2. Jane, as a hostess you are so welcoming and gracious. We felt at home right away. And now let's talk about the food. WOW, you prepared and cooked such beautiful fresh, creative food. Delicious snacks, breakfasts, lunches, suppers & desserts, with so much variety and tastiness...and to be serving 8 people all together all the time and keeping us all happy - that is a real challenge and you aced it. Not to mention the wine and beer and other yummy cocktails were flowing and top notch as well. Let’s say the guests were never thirsty.
3. The vessel itself was very clean, and as expected. There were no surprises. The cabins were clean and comfortable, really nice quality’s sheets and towels, and we slept very well. Loved the electric flush toilets!

We would be more than willing to refer you to any friends or family looking to charter a crewed Catamaran vacation!

Thank you again.
Sincerely,
Lisa & Benoit
