Meet the Crew

Brad & Kathy Korth

Brad and Cathy met over 21 years ago when Brads’ Gunnery Sergeant, who happened to be Cathy’s uncle, ordered Brad to call his niece and take her out on a date. It seems to have taken! They both grew up boating, waterskiing, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in the beautiful outdoors of Idaho, which they continue doing together in the off season in Montana. They love to ride their Harley Davidson and to travel as much as possible. In addition to travel, Brad and Cathy enjoy running and in 2010 completed the Seattle Marathon in record slow time! This experience led them to believe anything is possible as long as you put one foot forward.

Cathy has always enjoyed cooking and Brad has benefited from it greatly! She had a custom wedding cake business in Idaho which she excelled at. With both of their large families and Cathy’s joy in putting on large holiday and birthday gatherings, she is well versed in cooking a varied menu for all types of appetites. Whether you want a Caribbean style, or a Montana flavored meal she can custom design the meals to your desires.

Brad first recognized a keen interest for water sports while working on his Eagle Scout Badge. Feeling more at home on water than on land, being on a boat is definitely his “Happy Place.” Brad and Cathy’s passion for sailing grew out of a trip to Tahiti where they became acquainted with the cruising life. Coming home to Idaho they bought their first sailboat in a used car lot and taught themselves to sail on mountain lakes...read more

Trading that first boat for a larger one, they attended a liveaboard ASA certification course in San Diego and shortly thereafter sailed the new boat in the Sea of Cortez. Yearning for larger sailing grounds, Brad and Cathy relocated to the Pacific Northwest to chase the sailing dream and sailed extensively in Puget Sound, the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands and up into Desolation Sound. They lived aboard their own 42’ sailboat for 5 years when, wanting to share their love of sailing, they opened and operated a successful vacation property and day-charter business on San Juan Island. After becoming “empty-nesters” they realized their dream of living where “the weather suits their clothes,” and continue to enjoy the chartering, hospitality, and the sailing lifestyle in the Caribbean!

Brad and Cathy are very family oriented and enjoy seeing happy families and kids having fun. They thrive in the Caribbean on finding the right adventures to suit the desires of the families that come down to sail on Karizma. Let them know what you want to do while in the Caribbean and they will custom plan the trip to check off all the boxes. Whether it is a quiet bay all to yourselves, or a busy anchorage full of other boats to watch, they will make sure you spend your time exactly the way you want.

The Crew Spoiled Us All!
With 3 boys life is rarely about me ☹! But, on this trip, the crew spoiled us all! I Loved the long days of sailing and watching Will learn to Slalom. I will take the "Pirate Game" with me on all future family vacations. What fun we had on Karizma! The crew showed us all the hot spots and entertained us with games, stories and jokes. The meals were delicious and the views spectacular! It was a great holiday. ~ Foster Family

Beyond Awesome - The MOST Fantastic Trip Ever!
The crew showed us the most fantastic trip ever! They fed us so well (too well maybe 😊) and showed us around the BVI's in such a fun way.

The tubing, wake boarding, snorkeling, swimming, jumping off the top of the boat, paddle boarding and everything else were beyond awesome! The crew both played Uno and other games with us and the kids and were just super fun to hang out with, especially while on the search for the 'GreatWhiteHippoCrocoDuckAsoroPusArooit'

Thanks so much.~ Ryan Sparks and Family

The Crew Went Above and Beyond
We really had a wonderful time on the Karizma. We have no complaints whatsoever. Really! The crew really made the trip memorable. We all felt like they were just part of the family. I think there is always some bit of apprehension when meeting new people and knowing that you will be in close quarters for the week, but they went above and beyond in making us feel at home. They were able to accommodate us in every way. We would happily cruise with them again.
An Exceptional Experience
We recently ended our vacation on Karizma, and are excited to rebook in the coming months with them! The crew's professionalism and attention to detail was very much appreciated! They went above and beyond to make sure our group was having an exceptional time, and their attention made us feel like we were at a 5-star resort. They were always ready to go the extra mile for us and truly turned this vacation into an exceptional experience. ~The Macentire Group
It Couldn't Have Been Better
We took a trip aboard Karizma. It couldn't have been better!

From minute one to the last minute of our trip, the captain made us feel at home onboard with an easy going, friendly charm. Right away he showed us around the yacht, which in itself is amazing: plenty of space to move about, seek privacy, lounge comfortably, sleep like a baby, and even take a refreshing shower. He exceeded our expectations as the captain of our vacation and Karizma!

The comfort and luxury of Karizma was highlighted by the quality of our meals. Nourishment somehow arrived just when we were hungry and made us feel like we were eating in a high end restaurant at every meal. It was fresh, healthy and satisfying food that always included dessert which we devoured in earnest to fuel our many adventure filled days.

The crew feel like old friends after this trip. We felt completely safe with them as they proved to be competent sailors. The captain patiently and graciously showed us the ropes and gave us the opportunity to pitch in with sailing as we desired. We hold both of them in high regard and find ourselves missing their company now that the trip has come to an end.

Our days felt easy, revolving around what we wanted to do, with no rushing or pressure. The captain gave us solid advice and told many a story about the BVI�s both from natural and historical perspectives as well as the real truth about living there. He enabled us to get a genuine feel for the life that many of us only dream of and personally led us on hikes, and took us to amazing spots we likely wouldn't find on our own. From Tarpon feeding on Saba Rock, extraordinary banana daiquiris, a tour of Anegada by truck complete with a picnic on a beautiful secluded beach, and many more.

We left Karizma feeling we had a satisfying mix of pleasure, relaxation and adventure. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and not one of us wanted to wake up from our dream vacation on Karizma. We will be back!

Reviews for Karizma with previous crew:

Marcus and Risa were the best crew we could have imagined! They made our stay very special. This vacation will definitely stay in our mind!

Karizma was comfortable, clean and ventilated: all of it, yes! Marcus & Risa cleaned up during the week, for example when we were all snorkeling in the water, by the time we came back to the boat everything was cleaned up. During the sailing we stayed at the front in the morning / evening more in the back of the yacht. Every location was really nice. In addition we liked the fact that every bedroom had its own bathroom.

We enjoyed every meal prepared by Risa! She is very professional and was a brilliant cook! We were always looking forward to breakfast / lunch / dinner time. Risa always asked if there is something somebody doesn't like and customized the dishes, it was great!

Marcus & Risa included us in the planning of the route and islands we want to go according to our preferences (more party vs more quiet). They recommended us to go up to Anegada (which we did) and it was actually our favorite island!

John, it was great to have you as a fast responding partner at any time for all kinds of questions! Thanks a lot!

Just want to highlight once again that Marcus & Risa did an incredible job. Marcus was always open minded in some action (riding the hot dog, dive board) and he sailed us every day in a great mood to great places! Risa cooked everyday awesome dishes, helped Markus, told us the best places. They were both a great company! We would love to spend another vacation with them!
