***NOVEMBER 2022 - MID JANUARY 2023***
BRAD & KRISTI

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 7th year in the term-charter industry, Brad has also earned an advanced scuba certification and enjoys sharing cooking 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 a professional yacht chef. Kristi recently expanded her culinary repertoire while attending the Ashburton Cookery School in England, where she trained under talented chefs with Michelin star backgrounds. Her cuisine style utilizes fresh ingredients that bring both color and flavor to the plate, and her menus are made with the guests´ preferences in mind. Kristi 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 bachelor´s degree in environmental science, an advanced diver certification, and 12 years of experience handling various boats along the coasts of California, Georgia, South Carolina, and throughout the entire Eastern Caribbean. This is her tenth season operating charter boats in the Virgin Islands. Kristi & Brad are honored to call Get Along home and will ensure your vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.


***MID JANUARY 2023-JULY 2023***
SY & KARA
Originally from Atlanta, Ga, Sy was born in 1987 to a family rooted in hospitality and travel. His passion for the ocean began early during his summers on the shore of Amelia Island, Fl. After college he spent nearly a decade in hospitality management. Prior to finding his passion working on the water he managed an event venue and historic bed and breakfast in Amelia Island. In early 2017, Sy stumbled upon the beautiful islands of the Florida Keys. The crystal clear waters, fruitful life, and a certain Aussie sheila captured his heart. He spent three years captaining with Fury Water Adventures; taking thousands of guests a year snorkeling, on backcountry mangrove tours, and parasailing!!

Kara was born in West Australia in 1988 and moved to Darwin, Northern Territory at a young age. Kara is the oldest of eight adventurous children raised in the bush of the Outback. Her father inspired the love of the sea with sails along the coast of north Australia and throughout Indonesia. After a career driving haul trucks in the mines she set off to explore the world. Living throughout Indonesia, Thailand, and Europe she eventually found her way to the US.

She lived in New York City for two years working in event management, but whilst on holiday in Key West she realized she wanted to be back at the ocean. She was hired by Fury Water Adventures, where she worked for almost 5 years. Her long list of experience and credentials include chef and mate for a charter spearfishing company as well as chef and ground support for a TP52 Series Team in Europe. She is a USCG 100 ton captain and accredited Ashburton Chefs Academy graduate.

Sy and Kara met in Key West in 2017 and solidified their love camping across Australia in 2019. They were married in their beloved Key West in December of 2020 and headed south to their new Caribbean home the very next day! These two have spent the last few seasons aboard the lovely S/V EASIR II a 2020 46´ Lagoon and are thrilled to be partnering with Brad and Kristi Marquart on S/V Get Along for the 2022-2023 season!!

BRAD & KRISTI

Kristi and Brad, What a perfect week! This trip, by far, exceeded my expectations. You were both the perfect balance of professionalism, leadership and friendship. I felt so at home this week. The food was off the charts! I loved all the stories about the islands Brad shared, too. Thank you for taking wonderful care of us. You will be missed, hopefully we see you soon.
Love, Laurie

BRAD & KRISIT

Kristi and Brad, thank you both for a wonderful vacation on the lovely Sea Esta! You made the week so very special. Kristi, you are a true “chef extraordinaire.” The presentation, taste and variety was wonderful. Brad, thank you for always making sure we were safe while having so much fun. I wish you both fun on your next adventure!! We really hope to see you as you make your travels. My best to you both,
Love always, Becky

BRAD & KRISTI

Brad and Kristi, as you know, I searched many many many boats. How lucky we all were to land on Sea Esta. Yes, the boat was perfect, the toys were fun, the layout amazing. What really made the selection perfect was the two of you. The food was incredible, the sailing amazing, and as you say, “the friendships we forged” unexpected. Thank you doesn’t seem strong enough for this amazing time.
Lots of gratitude and love, Melissa and Nancy

BRAD & KRISTI

It is not hyperbole to say that this trip is the best catamaran sail we have experienced, by far! Not only is the vessel the most comfortable and most well-equipped, but paired with the best crew, it was a home run! For instance:
-Brad is a highly capable sailor and technician. We felt safe at all times. He is happy, supportive, and attentive.
-Kristi is a multi-talented chef, mariner, and wife with many interests. Every day on this trip Kristi showed her creativity and knowledge of the passengers´ needs and differing tastes. We never had 2 meals that were the same, and each one was literally better than the last one, no matter the cuisine. At most meals, after the first bite, I went ´wow!´ Kristi also never let our water bottles and drink glasses run dry without a cheerful, ´What else would you like?´
-We´ve been sailing on smaller catamarans and this one was much, much better.
-It is clear that Brad & Kristi are an ideal pair -- they not only love each other, but they work flawlessly as a team to make the boat run smoothly.
-All in all, I rate this experience a clear 6-stars (on a 5-star scale)!
Bravo! Best wishes in the future!
Love, Eunice & Carl

BRAD & KRISTI

I’m struggling to write this as I find myself at a loss for words!! What an incredible gift you gave us by hosting us on your boat. You both have a true gift of hospitality that left us feeling like family. Thank you for all you did for us and the intentionality behind every adventure!! Best wishes on your future travels! Until we meet again:)

BRAD & KRISTI

Thank you so very much for an absolutely unbelievable trip. Everything was beyond perfect and I will never forget a minute of this experience. You are both the most genuine people we have come across in a very long time, and we are leaving the USVI with two new friends. We wish you the best of luck in the future and hope that our paths cross again. We are already planning our next charter experience which is a testament to how amazing everything was. Thank you so much again!
Love, Liz & Mitch B

-Michele & Mike

BRAD & KRISTI

Dear Kristi & Brad,
We knew we had chosen the right boat when we found you two on Sea Esta. Kristi- the food was over the top delicious and both of you had impeccable sailing skills. All of us had a fabulous time and both of you went out of your way to see that all of our needs were met. It was truly service “with a smile” and we knew that both of you were sincere. Thank you for the best vacation!!! Please come and visit us!
-Nancy & Jim

BRAD & KRISTI

This has been an amazing week and a lot of it is due to you two being such fantastic hosts! Kristi, you really are a fabulous chef! Your plating of the food is so gorgeous.
Brad, thank you so much for taking Pete waterskiing. It was the highlight of the trip for him.
Please know there is always an open door for you two if you ever come to the Villages.

Love,
Sue & Pete

BRAD & KRISTI

Goodbyes are never easy, especially when you’ve connected with the people you are with, even for a week! You’ve made us all feel like family, welcomed us into your home, pampered us, tolerated us, all the while with smiles and love. This was a second charter for most of us…not to compare, but we will; this by far surpassed our prior charter by a mile! The food, the comfort, the hospitality, we never felt like we needed anything. You’ve become our lifelong friends and always have a place to visit with any of us!! Thank you for the best week EVER!! Love, Monique, Johnny, Aiden, James, Jadyn & Frank

BRAD & KRISTI

This was my dream vacation for so long and you guys made my dream come true. Everything was incredible! From the food to the activities, every detail was spot on. The food was so delicious! You guys are warm, kind, knowledgeable, funny, patient and caring. Thank you for tolerating and participating in our 12-year-old-boy humor:) I don’t think I’ve laughed this much in a long time. We are so grateful for everything you did to make this trip special and grateful to have met you both. My birthday cake was amazing! Sincerely, Joe & Courtney

BRAD & KRISTI

To: Kristi and Brad,
Thank you so much for the best vacay ever! We all lucked out with you
both as crew. This trip would not be safe or fun without you! From,
Molly

BRAD & KRISTI

Dear Kristi and Brad,
To add to Molly´s note- best vacay ever! We couldn´t imagine it with
anyone else. You exceeded all our expectations- food was off the
charts and we can´t wait to buy the cookbook. The activities and all
the great spots you found were fantastic. We loved every minute. Love,
Susan, Mike, JB, Katie & Molly (again)

BRAD & KRISTI

Wow!! I can’t imagine a better experience for our Maiden Voyage sailing with you guys. The food was fresh, delicious, & always spot on, as well as your hospitality. We loved your easy going, laid back vibe. The wildlife was amazing too! I will never forget swimming with the dolphins & never tire of seeing another sea turtle. Thank you for the warmth you bring to the boat, always making us feel at home. Wishing you the best in all your future travels.

Godspeed & God Bless, Anna, Josh & Abby

BRAD & KRISTI

I wouldn’t have wanted to spend this week any other way! Thank you for the amazing food & drinks and all the fun facts about the islands. I’m glad we were so fortunate to have you guys as our crew! Thank you for the amazing memories that we’ll have forever!
Spread love, William

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

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

BRAD & KRISTI

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

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

SY & KARA

The Hubert’s were great! Very personable and accommodating. The food was always very good and we never went hungry. The locations we went never disappointed and they were very knowledgeable of the area. The boat was great and looked brand new.

SY & KARA

They are incredibly professional, conscientious, fun, creative, and blew us away! They made us feel welcome and cared for at all times, and poured their hearts our cooking and checking in with us. We were picky about the crew when selecting the charter and even these high expectations were blown away. We feel like we made two great friends!

SY & KARA

Sy and Kara delivered an exceptional first charter experience for my wife, myself, and our two children (10 and 2 years old). Our preference sheet requests were all adhered to, including a strict gluten free diet for my wife, a stop at a sports bar to watch the Cowboys Thanksgiving day football game, a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner with all the accoutrements, and a beach pirate treasure hunt for the children. Speaking of our children, we could not have asked for a better crew to cater to their needs, or to the needs of us weary parents who were initially worried about the possibility of having to chase our toddler in circles around the yacht rather than being able to sit back and relax and enjoy the journey. Our worries proved wholly unfounded, as Kara graciously stepped in repeatedly not only to care for our toddler while we were onboard so that we could sit back and relax, but she also generously offered (and we delightfully accepted) to care for our little one on the yacht on several instances where we wanted to do activities on shore or go diving/snorkeling toddler-free. Put simply, Kara was fantastic with both of our children, putting us greatly at ease and allowing us to get the relaxation and break we so desperately needed on this holiday vacation. As for the beach private treasure hunt that we requested for the kids, both Sy and Kara spent several days carefully planning and plotting the hunt, and executed it so amazingly well — complete with Sy donning a pirate costume and accent, and a handmade treasure map along with clues hidden along the beach, both on land and under water—that observant guests with children on other yachts were asking if they could participate! When it comes to the meals onboard Easir II, both Sy and Kara’s culinary talents were readily evident from day 1 of the charter, serving us culinary delights which quite literally had as wondering, is there some way we could afford to simply stay aboard this vessel with this crew indefinitely? My personal favorites when it came to their cuisine were their Asian-influenced dishes, such as shrimp summer rolls, a delightful seafood in homemade green curry, and a perfectly seared ahi tuna appetizer with a gluten-free soy ginger glaze, all of which seamlessly blended local fresh seafoods with scratch-made sauces and dressings. When all was said and done, all of our trepidations as first-time charterers with little ones onboard proved completely unfounded, as Sy and Kara expertly and precisely provided the magical and restful vacation for which we had hoped. We would not hesitate to sail with them again, and though we returned from our journey just yesterday, we all—especially our toddler, who refers to Kara lovingly as “Aria”—miss them already. We wish to extend our sincerest gratitude to them both!

SY & KARA

We were so absolutely pleased with the Huberts. They were fun and we enjoyed our time with them. Not only experienced at sailing, navigating our catamaran but they were exceptional cooks with gourmet meals served every day. If we get the chance to sail again, we will definitely request the Huberts.

SY & KARA

Amazing! More than we expected! The food was outstanding. The Huberts did a great job offering us many choices per day. Trip of a lifetime!
-
The boat was immaculate. The food was amazing. The options presented to us daily were all out of this world. This trip had a level of service that was better than any 5 star resort. The Huberts made our trip perfect and memorable. They were friendly, funny, great cooks and I can´t wait to book our next trip.
-
The boat was amazing! New, clean and so well cared for. The Huberts were so accommodating, went out of their way to please us and were so enjoyable to be around. They kept the boat stocked with our favorite things and clean. The meals were amazing and delicious. I would rate them a 10 out of 10 and join them for another charter again!

Sy and Kara Hubert made our charter experience truly amazing. They are genuine hospitality professionals who care about every detail and who continually strive to improve their craft. My family rated this experience as our best-ever trip. The USVI´s waters were pristine, and our experiences hiking and snorkeling was better than we expected. What elevated our experience from great to exceptional was Sy and Kara. They are fun, engaging, interesting and they catered to our every need. We highly recommend the Hubert´s!

SY & KARA

The Hubert´s were amazing right from the start. They were laid back enough to allow us to do what we wanted but take charge enough to keep us on track. We can´t imagine a better curated experience.

Captain Sy made us feel completely safe. He certainly knows what he´s doing at the helm. (Kara is close behind) The boat was always clean and tidy.

The food was spectacular! Every meal was better than the last. A truly decadent experience.

We would highly recommend this boat and crew. You won´t regret it!

Sy and Kara are hands down the best crew in the Caribbean on any boat!

SY & KARA

Wow! What an amazing experience! I cannot imagine taking this trip with any crew other than Sy and Kara. Sy was a a master captain, explaining every part of our trip and answering all of our logistic-related questions with ease. He remained flexible throughout and was sure to cater to all of our needs. Kara was an excellent hostess. Our hands were never empty - whether it was a refreshing water, juice, or craft cocktail, she does it all! Kara was excellent company on board while still managing to be professional and service all of our needs. Additionally, I cannot rave enough about the amazing food on our charter. Both Sy and Kara made impressive meals and I never left the table hungry. I appreciate their willingness to accommodate my somewhat limited pallet and love that I got to try so many delicious new things! I have never been so well catered to on any trip. Sy and Kara were absolutely exquisite hosts and I will recommend that everyone I know book a trip with them in the future.

SY & KARA

Sy and Kara´s professionalism and genuine care in providing for an outstanding vacation showed throughout our week together. They are truly talented in so many ways. Cuisine, activities, discoveries, snorkeling, water sports, hiking, cocktails...all exceeded our expectations. They work so well together as a team, and they bring genuine enthusiasm to everything we experienced throughout the week. One of our best family vacations ever!

SY & KARA

This was my first charter experience. The Huberts were warm, professional, and very knowledgeable. There was not a question they did not answer and I greatly appreciate their patience and instruction with things that were new to some of us. I enjoyed the confidence and calm they exuded and I knew we were in “good hands”. I could sit back, relax and enjoy the trip. I appreciated the historical information about the places we passed and touched. It was not only fun but informative. Great trip!

Sy and Cara are the most amazing couple and most gracious host. We feel like family and plan on requesting them specifically in the future!! You could not have asked for a more perfect vacation! They were amazing. This is the second time working with our broker who was also outstanding. Thank you all ! Outstanding, highly recommended!

SY & KARA

Sy and Kara could not have been better. They were professional, fun, accommodating and very knowledgeable. They made the experience outstanding. The care and efforts that they both put into making our trip amazing is truly appreciated. We loved them so much that we booked another trip with them. I highly recommend booking with them and want to thank them again for all of their efforts to make us feel comfortable and pampered beyond our expectations. Nothing was ever too much of an ask and they both went out of their way to make every day a wonderful experience. THEY ROCK!

SY & KARA

We had the best vacation! So relaxing and easy. Sy and Kara were so enjoyable to be with. It was easy, fun, delicious and just an overall great trip! The kids loved spending time with Kara snorkeling and with Sy doing water sports. We have already referred them to several friends! Can’t wait to do it again!

SY & KARA

Kara and Sy provided our family with an amazing family holiday experience, so much so that we all came away from the trip saying it was the best trip ever. From the first time we met the pair on a zoom call for pre charter, to the last day when we were able to take advantage of their incredible hospitality Kara and Sy were nothing short of exceptional! The boat was immaculate, and this crew took care of our every need, they entertained our 3 kids everyday with activities whilst also reaching a high standard of service which included serving up spectacular meals that met with approval from everyone! I can´t recommend Sy and Kara with high enough regard, they are now part of our extended family!

SY & KARA

Everything was fantastic! Our hosts were amazing! Every meal, experience, activity, conversation, EVERYTHING, was top notch! We have referred them to several people since we got back from our charter.

SY & KARA

Sy and Kara could not have been more welcoming. They both went above and beyond making sure all our needs, as well as our wants, were met. They were knowledgeable, caring, and fun. Sy and Kara wanted us to have the experience of a lifetime, and they did everything in their power to make sure we were happy.

SY & KARA

Shhhhhh, don´t tell anyone, the Hubert´s are the best hosts and have the best charter on the USVIs. We don´t want them to become so popular, they´ll be booked the next time we want to go sailing. Every aspect of being on the boat with the Hubert´s was a 10+. The boat was clean and thoughtfully appointed. No detail was missed. A basket of personalized snacks, fresh basil and herbs, a stocked bar, and exceptional food. They took a genuine interest in all the guests, adults and our children. Snorkeling, fishing, tubing, sub winging, card playing, board gaming were all part of the daily agenda.....all while providing three incredible meals a day - along with mid-morning and afternoon snacks. Their response to any question, need or request was always ´yes´ - now what was your question? Whether on the boat or in the water, I felt my children were safe and cared for at all times. We couldn´t have asked for a better vacations.

SY & KARA

The Huberts were everything we could have hoped for and more. Their enthusiasm, their knowledge, their food, their spirit and their generosity of time and attention to everyone, including the 10 and 12 year old boys, was exceptional. Though they asked repeatedly about how they could be more accommodating, they left us wanting for nothing. The entire charter was a pleasure from start to finish. I felt relaxed, safe and sated with service and sunshine. I would do it again tomorrow and recommend the Huberts highly for anyone lucky enough to spend time in their company.

SY & KARA

´You know a vacation was good when you get back to regular life and find yourself daydreaming and longing to be back from whence you came. But, if you are lucky enough, you may take a vacation that causes you to question your purpose...your very existence...and whether what you have been doing your entire life was even ´living´ at all. For there, on the Easir II, we learned to really live. We relaxed, we adventured, we enjoyed. Sy and Kara were the perfect guides on our journey to discovery and will be lifelong friends. They taught us to swim with the creatures of the sea, fed us food meant for kings and queens, and filled our cups to overflowing with the sweetest, painkilling concoctions. And everyday since we have been home, we have considered selling all and finding our way back. This was an experience we will never forget.´

SY & KARA

´The entire family had a wonderful time with Sy and Kara. They were very communicative of what were to expect for the days events. And very willing to execute what our particular wants/needs were for each day. We found them very respectful of our space and family private time. Very attentive to our food preferences. Took the time in planning and preparing of meals. Sy is an excellent cook and Kara´s afternoon cocktails along with spread was always a delight.´

SY & KARA

´I cannot say enough about our amazing week with Captain Sy and Kara aboard the beautiful Easir 2. This was easily the best vacation of our lives. My wife and I traveled to the Caribbean many times on cruises and at all-inclusive resorts but we have never had a vacation like this. Sy and Kara were incredible hosts and all around awesome people who exceeded our expectations in every way. We had an absolute blast snorkeling, free diving, hiking, sailing, fishing, paddle boarding, knee boarding, riding the sub wing, and especially eating. This was also the perfect covid vacation since we were completely isolated from people outside of our group. We will be back very soon!´
