Fantastic week!

Art Director

Thank you for a fantastic week. The water sports were idea and Brad/Kristi made our week with their genuine kindness and overall hospitality. Be well.

Fabulous time

Art Director

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.

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.

Fantastic Week on Genesis

Art Director

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

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.

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!!!

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,

Thank you so much for this once in a lifetime experience! We had such an amazing time swimming with the dolphins, hiking to Rams Head, seeing turtles and the Bathes. 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!

Dear Kristi & Brad,

We came aboard to celebrate our 50th Anniversary and recreate many of
the memories we had in the BVI. What we did instead was make an
incredible new memory. Kristi & Brad set the bar high. Their
hospitality is unsurpassed. The meals are something foodies dream of;
presentation unique and gorgeous. And the tastes…fresh and fabulous!
They were so accommodating to our grandchildren; patient and engaging.
The activities were great, well thought out and fun. Their sailing was
enhanced by letting the kids learn how to sail. This has been an
extraordinary experience; we can’t thank you enough.

Thank you for a wonderful week! Thanks for tolerating our odd stories and annoying habits! Thanks for taking us to four different snorkel locations in ONE DAY! The food…Amazing! Every meal delicious….every drink tasty! Thanks for teaching us games in the evening! Thanks for finding quiet remote moorings that made us feel like we were the only ones on Earth. Above all, thank you for taking care of us all week. We hope to be back! We hope you’ll have us!

B & K -

We spent considerable time reviewing websites and boats available for charter. When we saw two midwestern kids captaining a boat we were interested. After we read the bios the deal was sealed.

Thank you for making our trip great. You two lived up to all of our expectations. All your efforts have made lasting memories. As you go forward in life remain real and grounded. Together you can accomplish anything. Set goals and reach for the stars. Life is best when you achieve dreams together. Thank you and may God Bless.

Brad & Kristi- we can hardly imagine a more perfect introduction to the world of boating through the BVIs. From the moment we stepped on board, your gracious hospitality was apparent. Brad's calm demeanor at the helm immediately put our group of first-time sailors at ease and Kristi's culinary wizardry had us practically licking our plates after every meal. You accommodated our every request, from making a different breakfast for me each morning, to tethering Genesis to Sasha so that we could enjoy time together with our friends in the evenings. We now appreciate the challenges that process entailed so thank you so much for your willingness to make it happen. We are still in awe of how you work together as a team without ever losing your patience. Roger would have kicked me overboard before we left the marina! You were fantastic with the teens, who are now obsessed with playing Dutch Blitz! Each morning, they excitedly scanned the board to see what special drink you'd be whipping up for them later. Brad- you indulged our endless questions about "what island is that?" and "how big is that boat?" while entertaining us with tales of shipwrecks and dead movie stars. Kristi- you indulged our inner foodies with amazing meals, none of which involved Doritos. The coconut cake you made for the twins' 15th birthday was the culmination of a week of fantastic cuisine and we are still raving about the freshly squeezed margaritas and Ocean Cosmos. Thank you for treating our friends as though they were your guests, going out of the way to make them feel at home on our boat, and for taking turns hosting teen dinner parties so the adults could enjoy time together. Thank you for tolerating our obsession with Stepbrothers, tarpon wrestling, and sub-par conch blowing. We feel like we have two new friends in the world who partially get our weird sense of humor.


Our door in Atlanta is always open so please come visit us so that Leslie can cook for you and Roger can clean up afterward!

Love,
Roger, Leslie, Grant, Ellery & Gracen

Area Cruised: Virgin Islands
Overall Rating: 5/5

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
Absolutely! They were outstanding.

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
Yes it was. Genesis being an older boat, it obviously lacked some features of newer ones but we knew that going in. The yacht was extremely clean though and well maintained.

3. Was the yacht well ventilated?
Yes it was.

4. Was the food good and well presented?
Stellar food! Kristi did an amazing job observing the preference sheets for each individual and we all licked our plates each and every meal.

5. Did you like the area you sailed?
Yes we did. It was an amazing trip and we loved being able to see all the nooks and crannies of the islands you can't see from a mega cruise ship.

6. Additional comments on your charter?
I can't even begin to express how amazing our trip was with Kristi and Brad. They are the epitome of hospitality. From Kristi's meals and "drink of the day" to Brad's sailing skill and kindness, they are a class act. Each one of us in our party of six was so happy to have them host us for the week. We learned so much from them on sailing and the history of the area and they exceeded our expectations at every turn. I'm so glad we were able to snag them on Genesis before they move on to Sea Esta. I have no doubt they'll continue to see much success as their reputation grows in the Virgin Islands.

4. Was the food good and well presented?
Yes it was.

5. Did you like the area you sailed?
Yes we did.

6. Additional comments on your charter?
Brad and Kristi were excellent hosts and very accommodating. They took a great deal of pride in maintaining the Genesis and providing the best experience possible with it. They were very knowledgeable of the areas we sailed and the islands we visited. They were very energetic when we were up for activities and very good at allowing us down time and family time when we wanted that. In a boat where space is at a premium we never felt that the crew made it difficult to have space when we wanted it. We have tried to think of anything that the crew may have done differently to further enhance our experience and truly could not think of anything. This was our first sailing trip. We highly recommend Brad and Kristi and if we decide to sail again we will definitely reach out to them in hopes that they are available.

Brad & Kristi -

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! We had a fantastic time & loved getting to know you! Everything was perfect - all the great food & drink - and all those bowls of chips!! Sorry we underestimated our liquor consumption…We will do better next time! From the fantastic food, snorkeling spots, the sub-wing fun, the flamingo in the bedroom, the trip to Fallen Jerusalem, the sunrise trek in the dark, the second wedding for Ron & Eileen (thank you so much for being such wonderful participants & sharing your special champagne with us that night)! We were so happy you met us at Maho (trusted us to be there) & we loved the fact that you allowed us to blow the conch shell every sunset even though it was one of your most prized possessions. We hope to sail with you again. Love ya! Kathy, Joe, Eileen & Ron

Brad & Kristi,
Wow! What an amazing trip we had on the beautiful Sea Esta! We've been on several of these sailing trips and normally head straight to the BVI's. It was such a surprise blessing to have to stay in the USVI's this time. We were able to experience a whole new world! We especially loved sailing to St. Croix, the amazing snorkeling at Buck Island, and the breathtaking sunsets from Frederiksted. We also learned that St. Thomas and St. John have many incredible stops!
Brad, you are a great Captain. You know all about the islands and sea life, while also upbeat and positive, making us all feel very safe. Kristi, you are a ray of sunshine!! Between the full breakfasts, cocktail of the day and incredible meals, I'm leaving feeling very relaxed and spoiled. The two of you make a tremendous team and I can't imagine what else you could have done to make this fabulous vacation any better. Thank you for everything and I hope to sail with you again soon!

We hope our paths cross again and wish you so much luck and happiness in the future. Rock Chalk!

Not even sure what to write that could ever express all the fun,
adventure, care, smiles, passages, anchoring, environmental learning,
mermaiding, views, deep sleep, delicious meals, protection, all the
questions answered, and friendships made - but that would just be
impossible. Absolutely lucked out for my first voyage and it being
with you both.
All the best! Rose

Art Director

We can’t even believe the week is over already. Truly one of the best trips we have ever taken. Not going to lie when I say when Eric brought up the idea last year of spending a week aboard a boat/yacht/catamaran to celebrate the dreaded 5-0, I definitely hesitated. I couldn’t imagine wanting to celebrate turning “old” at all, much less out on the ocean with nowhere to run when the reality of acknowledging extra wrinkles, loose skin, and a possible extra pound or two set in. So many good things about turning older but also so many regrets about not learning earlier to embrace life, love myself, make more friends, and to truly enjoy each moment we have here on earth.

This week has brought so many laughs and good times, and added you all into not just our “friends” circle but actually into our “family.” From the minute we stepped on board you have fed us, loved us, and reminded us to “make good choices” every step of the way. Jeff couldn’t be any more excited about his gold dual stripe status and his duties of watching for the pirates daily.

As a family member now, we want you all to continue to enjoy all the crazy, laughs and fun we have to offer. So just know that when the invitations start rolling in, we from the bottom of our hearts will be praying you can join us in the near future.

Love, your whale-sighting, funeral stalking, rainbow searching, shark freaking, two gold-striped birthday guests, Jeff & Pam

P.S. Thanks for making 50 fab!!

This trip has exceeded all of the lofty expectations the 8 of us had been talking about for close to a year. 2020 was a trying time for everyone and the thoughts of joining you both on this amazing trip kept us smiling and laughing. The care and attention to detail you have both shown in every aspect of every day has been incredible, whether it was the amazing food or the quiet confidence you both were able to exude to make us all feel safe, comfortable and relaxed. Anne Marie and I could not picture ourselves having such a good time without the two of you. This has truly been the trip of a lifetime made all the more better by the two of you. When we are gone and back at home we will ALWAYS have you guys in our thoughts and will have smiles on our faces as we remember this amazing trip. With so much love and affection, you both are very special and now hold a forever place in our hearts. XOXO Eric & Anne Marie

Goodbyes are never easy, especially when you’ve connected with the people you are with, even for a week! You’ve made us all feel like family, welcomed us into your home, pampered us, tolerated us, all the while with smiles and love. This was a second charter for most of us…not to compare, but we will; this by far surpassed our prior charter by a mile! The food, the comfort, the hospitality, we never felt like we needed anything. You’ve become our lifelong friends and always have a place to visit with any of us!! Thank you for the best week EVER!! Love, Monique, Johnny, Aiden, James, Jadyn & Frank

Thank you so much again!

It is not hyperbole to say that this trip is the best catamaran sail we have experienced, by far! Not only is the vessel the most comfortable and most well-equipped, but paired with the best crew, it was a home run! For instance:
-Brad is a highly capable sailor and technician. We felt safe at all times. He is happy, supportive, and attentive.
-Kristi is a multi-talented chef, mariner, and wife with many interests. Every day on this trip Kristi showed her creativity and knowledge of the passengers' needs and differing tastes. We never had 2 meals that were the same, and each one was literally better than the last one, no matter the cuisine. At most meals, after the first bite, I went "wow!" Kristi also never let our water bottles and drink glasses run dry without a cheerful, "What else would you like?"
-We've been sailing on smaller catamarans and this one was much, much better.
-It is clear that Brad & Kristi are an ideal pair -- they not only love each other, but they work flawlessly as a team to make the boat run smoothly.
-All in all, I rate this experience a clear 6-stars (on a 5-star scale)!
Bravo! Best wishes in the future!
Love, Eunice & Carl

Kristi and Brad, thank you for making our dream vacation come true! Your hospitality and attention to detail are off the charts! All of the meals were outstanding and each meal was better than the last! We loved sharing our time together and your stories and knowledge were entertaining.

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.

The trip was amazing and I loved the food. I got to snorkel for the
first time, ride on the raft behind the dinghy, swim with barracudas,
see a sea turtle, see Captain Hook, and snorkel in caves. It has been
an amazing week and I bet there are so many more highlights that I
haven't named.

We spent a week with family on this boat in the BVI. One of the best vacation experiences ever. The scenery was spectacular,the boat was impeccable. The experience was elevated to extraordinary thanks to the crew, Kristi and Brad. Their concern for our safety was foremost while providing a great sailing experience. The food and drinks prepared onboard were some of the best we have had, delicious and creative. It was a relaxing and wonderful vacation that I have recommended to anyone that might ask.

Art Director

Brad & Kristi,
Brad and Kristi not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. They were both extremely personable, fun, caring, spontaneous, and their top priority (aside from safety) was ensuring we had a great time, which we did. The food was absolutely phenomenal (Brad and Kristi did a wonderful job customizing the meals according to individual preferences), the overall mood and dynamic on-board was fun and relaxed, and they were ready and willing to change the itinerary according to what we wanted to do. Brad and Kristi really went above and beyond to ensure we would have a memorable vacation!! They are a wonderful crew and would highly recommend them to all our friends, and definitely would book another charter with them.

The boat was great, Brad and Kristi really do a great job at maintaining the boat. It was always clean and from the moment we stepped on board, you could tell right away the boat was well cared for. It had ample space and the amenities were great. Even though the boat was in top condition, it was Brad and Kristi that really made the charter great.

Thanks for helping us make the selection for another great charter!

Best,
Erika and Matt

Saying this week was incredible or amazing or the best does not do it
justice. If anything, we would say it was life changing to have you
both hosting us, cooking for us, piloting the boat for us, telling us
stories and being our overall guides and friends for the week. You
both have not only turned into our friends, but you have become our
point of reference to what a wonderful week in the Virgin Islands
means. Keep in touch and always remember to keep it chill -Livinchill

Thanks for being amazing sports dealing with our motley crew and super mature senses of humor. Really hope to see y’all again in this lifetime! Love, Haleigh & Jenny

Feb 2021

Art Director

From the moment we stepped onto this sailing vessel, we felt at home. The beautiful beaches, the great food, snorkeling, delicious dinners, landscapes, yummy meals, blue water, desserts, paddle boarding, appetizers, the great boat accommodations, food, tilt the glass game, cookies, pulling up anchor, food, sailing lessons, and more food. All of these are memories we will cherish forever, but you taught us much more than sailing. Your grace, patience, hospitality, and generosity did not go unnoticed and are qualities you should both be proud of. They are traits we will look to emulate a little more in our marriage and with our children.

Thank you for everything you gave us this week. It’s a once in a lifetime trip where everything and everyone came together to create a vacation we will never forget. Heartfelt thanks, Megan & Drew (“I’m Starving!”)
