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 restaurateurs 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 USCG 100-ton Master 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.

July 2019

Name: Larry
Yacht: GENESIS with Brad & Kristi Marquart
Charter Dates: 2019-07-09 12:00 to 2019-07-16 12:00
Area Cruised: Virgin Islands
Overall Rating: 5/5

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
Extremely

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
Yes it was

3. Was the yacht well ventilated?
Probably as well as it could be during the day. AC worked well when running at night.

4. Was the food good and well presented?
Yes it was.

5. Did you like the area you sailed?
Yes we did.

6. Additional comments on your charter?
Brad and Kristi were excellent hosts and very accommodating. They took a great deal of pride in maintaining the Genesis and providing the best experience possible with it. They were very knowledgeable of the areas we sailed and the islands we visited. They were very energetic when we were up for activities and very good at allowing us down time and family time when we wanted that. In a boat where space is at a premium we never felt that the crew made it difficult to have space when we wanted it. We have tried to think of anything that the crew may have done differently to further enhance our experience and truly could not think of anything. This was our first sailing trip. We highly recommend Brad and Kristi and if we decide to sail again we will definitely reach out to them in hopes that they are available.

July 2019

Brad & Kristi,
Brad and Kristi not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. They were both extremely personable, fun, caring, spontaneous, and their top priority (aside from safety) was ensuring we had a great time, which we did. The food was absolutely phenomenal (Brad and Kristi did a wonderful job customizing the meals according to individual preferences), the overall mood and dynamic on-board was fun and relaxed, and they were ready and willing to change the itinerary according to what we wanted to do. Brad and Kristi really went above and beyond to ensure we would have a memorable vacation!! They are a wonderful crew and would highly recommend them to all our friends, and definitely would book another charter with them.

The boat was great, Brad and Kristi really do a great job at maintaining the boat. It was always clean and from the moment we stepped on board, you could tell right away the boat was well cared for. It had ample space and the amenities were great. Even though the boat was in top condition, it was Brad and Kristi that really made the charter great.

Thanks for helping us make the selection for another great charter!

Best,
Erika and Matt

Yacht: GENESIS Genesis with Brad and Kristi Marquart
Charter Dates: 2019-06-02 16:00 to 2019-06-10 12:00
Area Cruised: Virgin Islands
Overall Rating: 5/5

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
Absolutely! They were outstanding.

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
Yes it was. Genesis being an older boat, it obviously lacked some features of newer ones but we knew that going in. The yacht was extremely clean though and well maintained.

3. Was the yacht well ventilated?
Yes it was.

4. Was the food good and well presented?
Stellar food! Kristi did an amazing job observing the preference sheets for each individual and we all licked our plates each and every meal.

5. Did you like the area you sailed?
Yes we did. It was an amazing trip and we loved being able to see all the nooks and crannies of the islands you can´t see from a mega cruise ship.

6. Additional comments on your charter?
I can´t even begin to express how amazing our trip was with Kristi and Brad. They are the epitome of hospitality. From Kristi´s meals and ´drink of the day´ to Brad´s sailing skill and kindness, they are a class act. Each one of us in our party of six was so happy to have them host us for the week. We learned so much from them on sailing and the history of the area and they exceeded our expectations at every turn. I´m so glad we were able to snag them on Genesis before they move on to Sea Esta. I have no doubt they´ll continue to see much success as their reputation grows in the Virgin Islands.

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,

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

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

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,

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.

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

Brad & Kristi,
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 both for the wonderful memories. This is a trip I will never forget. The food was outstanding, the service stellar and was all-around a great vacation. I really enjoyed seeing the islands in a different way than I am used to.

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

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,

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.

-Chris

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.
