Meet the Crew

Marcus & Risa

Captain Marcus has lived on all of the US Virgin Islands: St Croix, St John and St Thomas and has been entertaining island visitors here for the past 6 years. On St. Croix he worked in the service industry as well as running various day sail boats as first mate and then captain. Marcus most recently delivered a yacht to Portugal and spent the summer skippering charter yachts in the Mediterranean. Since 2015 Marcus and Chef Risa partnered as crew to run charter yachts in the Virgin Islands, establishing it as one of the busiest and most popular catamarans in the VIs. Marcus holds a USCG 100ton Masters License.

Born and raised in New York, Chef/First Mate Risa's love of food and creative cuisine began early. Growing up in a family of competitive home chefs, she borrowed her first cookbook from the library at age eight and has had a fascination with delicious food ever since. With ten years in the hospitality field under her apron, Risa has honed her service skills in addition to her culinary experience. Combining her love for food and travel, the yachting industry was a natural fit for Risa and after two years globetrotting and learning about international cuisine, Risa began working as a hostess and freelance chef on charter yachts in the Mediterranean and in the Virgin Islands. Teamed with Captain Marcus aboard a charter catamaran in 2015 in the Virgin Islands, Risa enjoyed a busy and successful year serving incredible cuisine to their lucky charter guests. Risa has become known for her creative food presentations as well as her delicious meals. She particularly enjoys working with the local Caribbean ingredients and infusing some of her Jamaican born mother's recipes into her cuisine. ..read more

Marcus and Risa are excited to be aboard the beautiful crewed charter catamaran Neverland. They look forward to welcoming guests to the island paradise they have come to call home and showing guests the time of their lives.

Reviews for Neverland with Marcus & Risa:

Everyone in our party felt like we had the best crew in the Caribbean in Marcus and Risa. Our daughter received a marriage proposal at the Baths and Marcus and Risa really made it special.

We liked that Neverland’s en-suite bathrooms, the upper seating area and the fact it was a new boat.

Risa is a magician. Still not sure how she produced 3 award winning meals a day for 9 people in the tiny galley! And without re-provisioning during the charter.

Marcus has a deep knowledge of the area and hit all the highlights we hoped for.

Communication was excellent from Sailing Directions. John did a great job helping us through the impact of the hurricane.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sailing Directions and Marcus/Risa/Neverland.

Chris P, aboard Catamaran Neverland sailing the Virgin Islands

The trip was awesome. Thank you for suggesting a crew that was experienced and knowledgeable of the area as that was important to us. The captain and chef were accommodating to all our needs and wants.

This was my fourth trip to BVI aboard a chartered, crewed catamaran and I can, without hesitation say our chef, Risa was the best. Her presentation and quality of food was fabulous. Everyone agreed she was over the top. We all wanted to bring her home with us.

You did a great job of hooking us up with a great crew and outstanding boat, the Neverland experience was The Best!

Beverly L, aboard Catamaran Neverland sailing the Virgin Islands

We had a phenomenal trip this week. I cannot say enough good things about marcus and risa. It was very evident that they are the best crew on the water based on their interactions with the locals as well as other crews. More importantly, we thoroughly enjoyed their company and had a hard time saying goodbye to our new friends.

Marcus & Risa were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. Their knowledge of the islands and the boat ensured that we had an incredible experience. Their personalities were a tremendous fit for our group we left with wonderful new friends. It is clear that all of the locals know and love Marcus & Risa which was evident by how everyone greeted them upon arrival. They are both experts at their craft and are a ton of fun to be around.

Neverland was immaculate and certainly appeared to be one of (if not the) best catamaran we saw during our trip. Our favorite aspects were having cocktails on the upper deck particularly during a late afternoon sail. The rooms were very comfortable and the dining area had plenty of space for us to spread out, relax and have fun. We enjoyed all of the toys on board including the swinging chairs, rafts, paddle boards and wakeboard.

Risa is simply amazing. Every single meal was absolutely delicious and presented creatively and beautifully. Risa customized the menu to our preferences while maintaining her unique style. She seems very passionate about cooking which makes her food all the more enjoyable.

Marcus charted the perfect itinerary that enabled us to enjoy the different islands based on our personality while also factoring in wind/weather to ensure that we had great sailing conditions. If we had to pick a favorite, Anegada was our favorite stop along the way.

John lane was a pleasure to work with. He was patient with us and very helpful as we went back and forth over various boats. Marcus & Risa were the perfect fit for us which really added so much enjoyment to our trip. We have several friends who have been considering the trip but have been a little scared to pull the trigger after seeing the damage caused by the storms. Hopefully, our experience will help more come and enjoy the BVIs.

Scott L, aboard Catamaran Neverland sailing the Virgin Islands

Marcus and Risa were fantastic, accommodating in every way. Marcus had us anchored or moored in the most picturesque bays in the BVI. Risa had us eating and drinking like royalty. Never have I had an experience as relaxing as this. The trip wouldn’t have been complete without those two guiding our experience.

Loved everything about the Neverland, the setup of the boat was superb, and everything was clean and in its place.

Risa exceeded all expectations, and as others have said before the only pitfall was taking a night off to go to a restaurant ashore; Risa wins hands down.

Couldn’t have asked for a better itinerary, we loved every second of it.

John , you made this very easy for a first time charterer, thank you for all the guidance and direction. I was able to accomplish all tasks needed to secure the charter through the website.

Amazing adventure...
We had the most amazing adventure. When I have time I will certainly give you more details of what was the best of the best. But in a nutshell, everyone should sail with Risa and Marcus on Neverland once in their life. You made life and the planning so easy thanks for everything
May 4-9, 2017
To Marcus & Risa,

Thank you for an amazing adventure! The food was exquisite, the expertise was top notch, and the destinations made for wonderful memories! We appreciate you sharing your home with us. And we look forward to another trip soon! All the best, Darh & Karen
May 4-9, 2017
Risa and Marcus,

We had an amazing time under your stewardship. THANK YOU for getting the sails out on the travel days & finding the perfect anchor points. Our only regret was that we requested any meals on land! The food was imaginative and far surpassed expectations. We hope to set sail with you again and you are both welcome in Denver anytime. Lordy, I'm 40!!! Brian, Shea V.
May 4-9, 2017
Marcus & Risa,

Thank you for sharing your incredible home with us. It was a dream trip, made even more memorable by the two of you. We've never felt more relaxed, at ease & present. I can't thank you enough for giving my mode of operating planner-self a pause. We can't wait to see you two in Denver & hope our adventurous paths can cross again elsewhere. Love, Megan & Ben
April 8-14, 2017
The best Neverland Adventure! Captain Marcus, jack of all trades, you rock this! Risa, your food was amazing xoxoxo. You two make a great team and were super accommodating. Thank you, thank you, thank you! if you are ever in Seattle, please look us up!
April 2017
I enjoyed this trip a lot. The great meals, the music, Dukie (until it died), the sailing, the snorkeling, swimming, shopping and sitting and enjoying the beauty around us. Mattias even learned to fish and we had a great time. I saw pelicans, sting rays, sea turtles, tropical fish and Tarpins. I have never seen any of that cool stuff before and it was fun seeing them. Thank you so much for this awesome trip! The Stickler family
Bucket list vacation
Marcus & Risa,

Thank you for following your hearts and doing what you love because of your love of sailing, service & cooking - we have been blessed.

Our bucket list vacation was everything we prayed for without knowing how amazing it would be.

You catered to us with experience that brought us unbelievable beauty with snorkeling, beaches and more. Marcus, thank you for getting this old lady out of her comfort zone! I am forever grateful. Risa, thank you for your calm, joyfull passion for cooking the most wonderful dinners & perfect settings.

John and I will always remember this vacation with such joy and happiness and love. You are both amazing people and we will pray for your continued properity in all you do. The 'K" party
March 2017
Marcus & Risa,
What an incredible week! You both made the trip special for our entire family. So many great memories - incredible meals, beautiful spots, fun sails, snorkeling, great cocktails and service with a smile 24-7. You truly made the trip one or family will always remember & cherish. We will have a reunion on Sea Force One.
Fondly, the Hoine Family
Exceeded our expectations...
Marcus & Risa, thank you for exceeding all of our expectations! We always felt secure, pampered, and totally delighted. The meals were ALWAYS exceptional. The tips about what to do were always spot-on. You're absolute professionals and, above all, you are two wonderful people and now friends too. Very best to you, and hope to see you again on future travels. Greg & Lisa B.
February 2017
Marcus & Risa,

It was great to experience two people who love what thy do, are masters of their craft and are attentive to their guests and easy to change to make their experience unique and spectacular.

You have made Denise and my first charter much more than we could have every expected. Great service, balanced music, safe travels, exquisite food, flying fish, pesky Baracudas, spectacular snorkeling, nautical alphabet challenges, scenic sailing, selfless service, competent & courageous captain, creative & savory chef... the list goes on.

You have made our experience most memorable. We will definitely recommend you to friends, family and others.

You both have a bright future ahead. God bless you in all that you do. Don't forget us when you come to Charleston. See ya'll soon!!!! John & Denise K.
Dear Marcus & Risa,

Today I am sad, I'm writing in this book because it's the last day of our charter with you both and Neverland Cruises. You both have been wonderful and you're family now!

Marcus your experience on the water shows. I trust your every move and felt safe every step of the way.

Risa your meals were amazing, the preparation and presentation showed a real love and passion for what you do.

Please come to Charleston so we may serve you both. We'd love to show you the Charleston waters on our little power boat and experience the wonderful restaurants we have - or we can get Denise to make the Lasagna :-)

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We'll miss you and the bluye waters of the BVI. Stay Safe!
xoxo Lisa and Greg B
Thank you so much Risa and Marcus for making this such a great trip for all of us! The food especially was exceptional. We wish we never had to leave! Thanks so much for making this such a great trip! Ella
An Exceptional Experience
We recently ended our vacation with Marcus & Risa and are excited to rebook in the coming months with them! Their professionalism and attention to detail was very much appreciated! Marcus & Risa 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 (Comments for Capt. Marcus and Chef Risa from their previous yacht).
It couldn\'t have been better
We took a trip aboard Karizma with Marcus and Risa. It couldnt have been better!

From minute one to the last minute of our trip, Marcus made us feel at home on board 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. Marcus 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 prepared by Risa. 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.

Marcus and Risa feel like old friends after this trip. We felt completely safe with them as they proved to be competent sailors. Marcus 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. Captain Marcus gave us solid advice and told many a story about the BVIs 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 many of us only dream of. Marcus personally led us on hikes, and took us to amazing spots we likely wouldnt 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 beachand many more.

We left the yacht 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. We will be back!
