Meet the Crew

Brad Marquart

Kristi Marquart has a diverse background within the charter boat and restaurant industries. She holds a

USCG 50 Ton Master License, her Marine Safety STCW 95, is a certified Nitrox diver, and has nine years

of experience handling various boats. Four of those years were spent in California as the crew of a sport

fishing charter, guiding whale watching tours, and working on a scuba diving vessel. She has delivered

sailboats in both the Eastern Caribbean and along the East Coast of the U.S., and most recently spent

the last season working aboard a 74’ ketch that sailed the USVI, BVI & St. Maarten. This is Kristi’s fifth

season navigating local waters and she loves to call the Caribbean her backyard. Her bachelors degree

in Environmental Science paired with her local knowledge of landmarks and wildlife make her an

entertaining guide to the area.

Kristi’s hospitality orientation developed at an early age in her family’s restaurant and brewery in Kansas,

where throughout high school and college she worked in both the kitchen and front-of-house. There she

became a certified Cicerone which qualified her to train staff in beer education and service. She has taken

on various leadership roles including opening a restaurant with the founders of Pebble Beach Food &

Wine, earning certifications in Bar Management & Responsible Alcohol Service, and is a certified..read more

Mixologist. She was promoted to a position that sent her to Denver, Colorado to open two restaurants as

the front-of-house manager. Although land locked again, it was a blessing in disguise because it was

there that she met Brad and the two revived their shared passion to sail and be on the water.

Kristi enjoys utilizing her understanding of flavor profiles in both the drinks and food she serves with her

guests preferences in mind. She also excels at special diets and special requests and sees diet

restrictions as an opportunity to develop new, healthy recipes. A true believer in genuine hospitality, she

goes above and beyond to create memorable experiences with those around her. Guests have said that a

favorite part of their trip was reading Kristi’s “Cocktail of the Day” board first thing in the morning and

anticipating her delicious signature drinks at happy hour.

While Kristi will joke with you that her love for the ocean all started with “The Little Mermaid,” she’ll relay

first hand that it was a memorable vacation to the Virgin Islands when she was 14 that truly lit her path. “It

opened my eyes to a kind of beauty I had never experienced, both above and below the water. I was

hooked!” Kristi is honored to represent Genesis as your Captain and Chef and will ensure your

vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.

Brad Marquart grew up in a small Mississippi river town in Missouri, developing a taste for catfish. 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 to provide precise and timely data regarding catch size and age 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, and then continued as an environmental

scientist liaising between the oil and gas industry and state regulatory bodies. However, the power and

diversity of life in 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 the new Kristi and Brad

team took every class they had time for. They left Denver in May 2016 for the east coast where they

assisted with a sailboat delivery, and then took new careers aboard a 74 foot charter ketch here in the

Virgin Islands. Brad has now obtained a USCG Captain’s license and nitrox scuba certification, and he

shares Captain’s, Chef’s and Guide duties with his wife aboard Genesis. An innate naturalist, he

loves identifying fish and studying their behavior. He enjoys life most when guiding snorkel and hiking

excursions in the beautiful Virgin Islands and reflecting after a memorable day building bonds with our

always-interesting guests.

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.
