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.

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,

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,
Rob & Pat

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 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

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
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.

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.

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,
Heidi
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.

Margaret, Mary, Haden, Moressey, Liz and Lily
Wonderful way to ring in the new year...
