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.

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!
