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

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.

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.
