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.

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

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

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.

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!

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

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!!!

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Wonderful way to ring in the new year...
