Okeana Crew Profile
London born, Raph grew up dinghy sailing from a tender age in UK waters but it wasn´t until 2012 that his career in sailing was truly launched.
He partook in the Oyster round the world rally that took him from Mallorca, Spain all the way to Thailand, via the gems of the Pacific Ocean. It was this trip that caused him to fall in love with all things Ocean and he promptly obtained his RYA Yachtmaster.
During this time, he also acquired his bachelor´s degree at the University of Leeds but the pull of getting paid to do something he loved was too strong and he returned to a life on the Ocean.
To date he has completed 4 Atlantic Crossings, 1 Pacific crossing and over 50 charters, so as well as being a fun, friendly and easy-going addition to your group, know you´ll be in extremely safe and experienced hands too.
Anna, originally from Michigan, always had a passion for travel and adventure. During the pandemic, she relocated to the USVI after living in New York City for 5 years. Whilst in New York, she was a professional Modern dancer and Assistant Rehearsal Director for world renown company, Jennifer Muller/The Works. Being a dancer, fitness was always important, driving her to complete her 600 hour Pilates certification from New York Pilates. Once Covid struck, the dance world was put on hold and Anna dove head first into a full time career change.
Anna´s love for sailing started in 2018, when she experienced her first trip in Greece. Immediately after, she realized her desire for the industry and began working for a sailing company as a freelance charter chef in Greece, Croatia and the British Virgin Islands.
Raph and Anna met in the Caribbean islands in 2017 while Anna´s family was on vacation, where she met her forever favorite captain, Raph. Since then, Anna and Raph have been inseparable, spending most of their time on sailing yachts, New York and London. With their shared love for adventure and hospitality, they make a great team to ensure the best experience aboard Okeana.

Okeana Guest Reviews
Trip was perfect!
Our family of 5 and my sister in law spent a week sailing in the BVI on the “Okeana” in July 2021. Our captain was Raphael (“Raph”) Marshall-Naef, and our chef was Isabel Sollberg. Everything about the trip was perfect. Raph is a great captain with lots of experience sailing in the BVI, and he took us to all of the best snorkeling spots and fun locations like Soggy Dollar and Willy T’s. Isabel’s cooking was amazing. Best of all, Raph and Isabel are two of the nicest and most fun people you could meet. Our family has done a lot of traveling and everyone thought it was the best trip ever. We all highly recommend Raph and Isabel, 10 out of 10 stars!!
Amazing Week on Okeana!
We spent an amazing week sailing the islands of the BVIs on a 49 foot catamaran, the Okeana! She is a beautiful yacht with a great open design. The best part of the Okeana is the crew. The Skipper, Raph is knowledgeable of the waters and attractions, super competent and confident. He made sure we had a safe, fun and relaxing adventure. Isabel, the chef catered to our every culinary and dietary need. Each meal was beautifully presented and delicious! Isabel took great effort to accommodate to each of our dietary restrictions and tastes. This was a first sailing charter for most of our party and everyone had a great time! We will definitely be back!
