BRAD & KRISTI
*Crew starting November 2019*

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 restauranteurs 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 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.

PETER & DARCY
*Crew through July 2019*

Peter and Darcy Whitney are both originally from the Eastern Sierra’s of California. They departed for Annapolis, Maryland to Florida over 17 years ago where they outfitted their 42 foot monohull with refrigeration, electronics,
sails and much more. After 3 months of outfitting the boat, they left for 2 ½ years on their travel adventure that
included the Bahamas, Caribbean, South American, Central America, and Mexico, and eventually arriving at
San Diego, California.

They have been working in the charter industry over 18 years and with over 285 charters under their belt, have
travelled with guests from Puerto Rico to Grenada operating both monohulls and catamarans. They had been
with the 62-foot Robertson & Caine ‘Sea Leopard’ catamaran since 2004. Now on the brand new “Tobarths” their
goal is to share the islands that have become so much apart of their life. Specializing on more of the relaxed,
luxury side, they tailor to each charter’s needs to ensure that your vacation is memorable for a lifetime . . . full of adventure, laughter, great food, and wonderful sailing.

Darcy has been working in restaurants and with chefs since she was 13 years old. She’s been a waitress,
hostess and restaurant manager. She worked for 5 years with one of the most prominent chef’s in Southern
California where she learned most of her culinary skills. Darcy is able to adapt to most requests from guests
with regard to dietary restrictions, kid’s preferences, gourmet and vegetarian foods.
She learned to sail from her husband, Peter, and enjoys being the 1st mate. Darcy will help you learn a bit of
sailing or if you chose to sit back and relax, she’ll ensure that all of your needs are being met from cocktails
under sail to going for a good hike. Darcy enjoys a great book, working out, swimming, hiking and rock climbing.

USCG licensed and with sailing experience that spans over forty years and countless sea miles, Peter has
sailed just about everything from sabots to a three-mast schooner. He is also accomplished on the race venue, campaigning his personal boat at Lake Tahoe, San Francisco Bay, and Miami Mid Winters, Florida. Peter also has published articles in local and national magazines. Now based in The British Virgin Islands, his knowledge of the Caribbean will ensure you a fun and fantastic holiday.

Sea Esta Guest Reviews

March 2019

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

Perfect Vacation

Vacationing in the BVI’s offers one of the most beautiful locations in the world…. And sailing with Peter and Darcy Whitney will make your vacation perfect.
We have sailed with Peter and Darcy on four private charters, and look forward to many more. With years of experience, Peter is a trusted Captain. Darcy assists as First Mate and also delights us with gourmet cuisine at every meal. Together, they are a “team extraordinaire”. Their vigilance to insure safety, their attention to every little detail, their willingness to accommodate any request, and their fun-loving personalities… all combine to insure a most memorable experience.
Jim & Diane, Missouri

Perfect vacation

We had another wonderful sail with you and Peter this year! We really like the new boat Tobarths (previous boat) but it is the crew that we charter, not the boat! The food was incredibly good as always, you never cease to amaze us with the variety and presentations. I told Peter that sailing with you both was like having two more of our best friends with us for a week. Peter makes us feel very safe sailing (and is a pretty darn good bar-b-quer!) and with you as chef, we can´t imagine a better way
to sail!! We are already looking forward to our next trip with you both. Thanks for everything you have done to make all our trips memorable.
Roger and Katie

Sailing with Peter and Darcy has certainly exceeded our expectations, which is why we have been and will be repeat
guests on their charters.
Sail away, sail away, sail away ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Everything was perfect...

Phenomenal boat with a phenomenal crew! What a wonderful family trip! Peter and Darcy, the
professionals that they are, lead us on a week long adventure through the BVI´s. Highlights for us included: snorkeling with the rays, the sail back from Anagada, the quiet coves of Peter Island, Foxy´s New Years Eve, and of course Darcy´s gourmet cooking! Peter, as our captain, gave us an exceptional sailing experience we will never forget. The team work between Peter and Darcy is exceptional. We can´t wait to go back to the BVI´s!´

Barry, Barb, Matt, Carlee, Erika, Brad and Brian
Peter was great! Taught us a lot about the BVI, Sailing, etc.
Every meal was exceptional and Darcy was able to cater our family´s different tastes.
Everything was perfect.
~Barry

Forth charter with Peter and Darcy

Not exactly sure where to begin and end as it seems this should be more about the experience and the crew and less about the boat. Being somewhat of an experienced sailor, I must begin by saying that Peter represents the ultimate in sailing knowledge and ability. We always seem perfectly safe and are never concerned about the situation at hand. We know that things will be handled smartly and safely. Between the Peter and Darcy, we know that things will be handled professionally. Darcy’s ability to prepare and serve five star meals is beyond compare. We have chartered 4 times with this wonderful crew and can’t imagine sailing with anyone else. We’ll be back next year. Our feeling is that we’re simply sailing with friends.

Amazing memories

Darcy and Peter have made this one of the most memorable and specials trips we have ever had. This has been an amazing week with our family and one that we hope to do again in the future. Time flew by , WOW! Mr. Peter and Mrs. Darcy made the whole trip and we now have so many stories and experiences to share with friends and family back home.
Amazing memories - The Stupfels

Just amazing...

The food! My wife and I think of ourselves as foodies, and we were both blown away by the meals prepared by Chef Darcy. I still cannot understand how one person, working in what appears to be a small galley, can create such fabulous meals of extraordinary quality and exquisite restaurant-style presentation. You would have thought such dining elegance would require several chefs and several supporting kitchen minions. And what is truly miraculous is that Darcy consistently delivers this extraordinary level of quality, meal after meal, day after day. Many of the guests we took said that the food alone was enough reason to charter again. At the risk of perhaps sounding too effusive, they delivered an experience that massively exceeded all expectations. Just amazing.

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.

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

December 2018

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

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.

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.

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,

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 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,

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,

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

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!!!

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.

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.

All we asked for was a cool breeze and a smooth sea. We received so
much more. The best crew in the Caribbean making for a wonderful
adventure. Thank you Kristi and Brad. Lets do it again.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
