Ron Marsilio - Captain - USCG 100 Ton, RYA Yachtmaster, STCW, Padi Divemaster

Ron grew up In Westport, Connecticut on the Atlantic Coast. Growing up on the beach he took to the water as a child and never looked back. At the age of 10, he began racing in the Junior Sailing Association all over the Long Island Sound. His passion growing up was competitive sailing and he has continued to race season after season for the last 20 years. A love for sailing has been in his blood since he was a young child. He spent summers sailing to and from Nantucket, Martha´s Vineyard, and the British Virgin Islands. In his spare time, he also enjoys surfing, wakeboarding, scuba diving, beach volleyball, and snowboarding.

Ron became a Sailing instructor in his late teens and worked as a skipper for regattas including the Atlantic Nationals. He also has experience managing race committees, acting as a safety chase boat, as well as setting up racecourses. When he isn´t racing he can be found chartering in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, diving and participating in just about any watersport. He has worked for multiple high-end charter companies globally over the years and loves showing his guests what makes sailing his passion for so many years. Guests looking to learn more about sailing or receive their ASA certification will enjoy Ron´s fun-loving instruction on board!

Chef - Marie Levraud (On board for January and February)

Katy Nickel - Third Crew/Stewardess - USCG Masters 100T, STCW, Padi Divemaster

Katy is an avid ocean lover and adventure enthusiast; she has spent years teaching marine science and sustainability, traveling throughout North and Central America, and the Caribbean, and enjoying fishing and SCUBA diving. Her history on boats and in the service industry provides experience and insight to ensure you are well taken care of, no matter what the need. Katy spent 4 years spearheading an environmental non-profit and zero-waste event planning business in North Carolina before moving to the Caribbean to grow her passions, as well as share her talents and skills with the boating world. She has been mastering her logistical coordination to ensure the best-suited itinerary and activity list for each group´s preferences. Before moving over to Third Crew, Katy was the chef on another vessel with Ron, therefore you will see her love for helping in the galley, and if she is not there or helping Ron with the sails, you will find her making a batch of her delicious custom cocktails.

It has been truly a lifetime experience

Ron, Katy, & Mel,

Thank you doesn´t seem enough for the amazing experience you guys gave us on our vacation. It has been truly a lifetime experience. We will always remember Rons laugh, Katies excellent service, and Mels fantastic cooking. We feel very blessed to have been on this vacation and very grateful this crew was apart of it. Parting is such a sweet sorrow but we are confident our paths with cross again. You all will forever be apart of our Ohana. Thank you again for spoiling us.


´Our crew on The Pursuit went above and beyond all of our expectations during our week with them. We sailed from St Thomas to St John, stopping In various bays. They made sure not only to accommodate us but also our friends who were on other charters. They tirelessly organized group activities for our whole group of 27 people!!! They had one concern, which was that we had the time of our lives. WE DID!!! From the moment we set sail the crew dedicated all of their time to make sure we were treated like rockstars. The food, drinks and accommodations were 5 star. Captain Ron, Katy and Melissa are top-notch!´

You guys opened your boat and your hearts to everyone

Ron, Katy, & Mel-

Family is not just blood. It was never meant to be just that. It is sharing love, caring for others, putting others before yourself, sharing meals and memories- its the Pursuit crew! You guys opened your boat and your hearts to everyone who came onboard. Thank you again for everything.

The best trip! - From Previous Yacht

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Ron & Katy last week on our charter from 1/22/21-1/26/21. We don’t do great on boats and we didn’t know what to expect being our first time spending days on a boat but it turned out to be an unforgettable experience. Delana Mae was absolutely beautiful. Ron and Katy made our experience very special. They are both such beautiful, kind, and sweet people. They made us feel very comfortable, taken care of, and were very attentive. They make the perfect team. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the history of the islands, sailing, different fishes, and what it’s like to live on a boat. Katy’s meals were all very delicious with beautiful presentation. They were both very nice when asked for anything even to take pictures of our group. They went above and beyond to make our experience the best possible and they achieved that. They became part of our group and we had a great time getting to know them and about their experiences. We hope to have the pleasure of seeing them again in the future and visit new islands with them.
