Meet the Crew

Mark Turner

Captain Mark Turner grew up in a small village in Leicestershire, England, before moving to the US over 20 years ago. When Mark first moved to the US he lived in Santa Cruz, California where he learned to sail & would go fishing for salmon and halibut in the Monterey Bay. Later he moved to Florida where his passion for being on the water & sailing lead him to become a sailing instructor. He discovered the Virgin Islands around 15 years ago and since that first visit always dreamed of living the island lifestyle. Finally in 2015 he made that dream a reality. He is really excited to share his passion for sailing and the island way of life with guests aboard Mariann.

Mark is a U.S. Coast Guard Captain, RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore, open water certified scuba diver, and a U.S. Certified Sailing Instructor. He enjoys traveling to new places and meeting people, making new friends along the way. He enjoys being on the water more than being on land, so its no surprise that his favorite sports other than sailing are wake boarding, scuba diving, surfing, and kiteboarding. On land, he also enjoys watching his favorite football team Leicester City.

Mark's sailing experience includes sailing the Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. His favorite sailing grounds, however, are right here in the Virgin Islands.His local knowledge of hidden places and local hot spots enables him to take his guests to the best places throughout the islands...read more

First Mate/Chef Heather Hessler joins Mariann as a highly regarded chef working in the charter yacht industry.

Born and raised in NJ, Heather's dad had her up on a surfboard since she was three years old. Her passion for the ocean started then. She fell in love with the Virgin Islands after traveling here as a competitive surfer and attending the University of the Virgin Islands

As much as Heather loves being in or around the ocean she has spent equal time in the kitchen. She started working in the restaurant/hospitality business at 16. She learned from great chefs in the super, high-end restaurants of St Thomas where she also became a sought after mixologist creating inspired libations in some of the island's top martini bars. Guests can look forward to her creative cocktails aboard!

.

Heather specializes in preparing healthy, flavorful well-balanced meals that are also aesthetically pleasing. She communicates with her guests pre-charter to tailor a menu to suit any dietary restrictions or preferences. She is well versed in vegetarian/pescatarian/vegan/gluten free diets. Heather draws particular inspiration from Latin, Caribbean and Asian cuisine influences.

Together, Captain Mark and Chef Heather offer an unparalleled vacation experience aboard Mariann - great days of sailing and exploring the BVI with delicious cuisine served with a smile.

Each Day Was Set Up Perfectly
This was our second trip with iYachtClub, and we already can't wait for our next trip. This trip, we stayed on the MariAnn with Mark and Heather. They were amazing hosts and quickly became great friends. Mark immediately put together an itinerary for our trip based on an initial discussion of what types of interests we have. Each day was set up perfectly to include dive trips, hikes, snorkeling, beach bar visits, and sailing. Heather's cooking was outstanding. We had dinner at one of the nicer restaurants one night, and afterwards, were bummed that we missed out on another dinner cooked by Heather. Heather and Mark worked extremely hard behind the scene, keeping the boat looking in great shape at all times, making calls to verify dive appointments, table reservations, and I'm sure many details that we were unaware of that made our trip as great as it was. I would highly recommend a vacation through iYatchClub to anyone, and if you have the chance to sail with Mark and Heather, don't miss out on it.


A Real Treat
If your looking for a great way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, etc. this is the way to go. Captain Mark and Chef Heather sure know how to make every moment special. I will have to say having someone make all my meals and make my drink is a real treat! Captain Marks painkiller is a must!! Heathers meals were unbelievable. She gets an A for presentation, an a A for great taste. Thanks again for making this occasion a special one for all of us on the Mariann!
We Were Spoiled Rotten!
Our group of 8 (ages 50-60) had a great week sailing the BVI with Captain Mark and Chef Heather on S/Y MariAnn. From the moment we arrived until our departure, we were spoiled rotten. We arrived as customers but departed as friends. Captain Mark did a great job piloting us around the beautiful waters of the BVI. Chef Heather's meals and drinks were out of this world. (And special shout out to Captain Mark for his Painkillers.) Anegada was the highlight of the trip. Don't miss that little piece of paradise. Irma damaged the area significantly but the spirit of the people was amazing and they are up and running and happy to welcome us. Thanks also to Derek and Julianna for all the pre-trip help and advice. Overall an amazing, memorable trip which we hope to do again some day. ❤️Debbie & Peter
Way Over and Above
Having never chartered a boat in the VI before, we did a bit of research and found iYachtClub. After just one phone conversation with Derek we felt comfortable that this was a family vacation we wanted to try. We trusted Derek on the size of the boat, the crew, and activities, and he did not disappoint. We arrived St. Thomas on December 26. After a short taxi ride to the Marina, we were met by Captain Mark and First Mate/Chef Heather. After a quick tour of our "home away from home" for the next seven days, we were off. We trusted Mark and Heather to select an itinerary that showed us the best of the USVI and BVI. Hurricane Irma and Maria were certainly devastating but the islands are rebuilding, the beaches still beautiful, and the waters crystal clear. They selected a nice variety of snorkeling spots, tourist attractions, and overnight stays. We felt like we were able to really get feel for the region and all it has to offer. Highlights included the Baths on Virgin Gorda, Pirates Bight on Norman Island, Pizza Pi VI in Christmas Cove, Soggy Dollar, Hendo's, and Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke, and the Dingy Bar on Water Island. We asked Derek for a "chef" and boy did he deliver! Heather was awesome....beautiful breakfasts (scrambled egg stuffed avocado, poached eggs in ham bowls, fresh fruit, breakfast burritos......), light and wonderful lunches (jerk chicken tacos, chicken guac bowls, turkey wraps......) and delicious and filling dinners (seared tuna with wasabi tuna tartare appetizer, rib-eye steak, marinated pork tenderloin with coconut rice and mango salsa,.......). Heather is a talented and passionate chef! Of course there were ample snacks, a fully stocked bar with special cocktails, seemingly unlimited beer, soda, and wine. Finally, just before arrival into St. Thomas on our way home, my daughter had a sudden eye infection that required medical attention on the island before flying. Not only did Heather and Mark make appropriate arrangements, they showed up in the Doctors office lobby to make sure we settled and taken care of -- way over and above the call of duty! We will certainly always remember this outstanding week and of course will try to "do it again" in the future! A big thanks to Derek and family, Captain Mark, and Heather!
