BRAD & KRISTI
Brad Marquart grew up in a small Mississippi river town in Missouri. 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 on fishing vessels to provide precise and timely data regarding fishery health 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, before switching gears and becoming an environmental scientist liaising between the oil and gas industry and state regulatory bodies. However, his previous life on 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 Kristi and Brad took every class they had time for. They left Denver for the east coast where they assisted with a sailboat delivery, and then took to new careers aboard a 74 foot charter ketch here in the Virgin Islands, which led to Brad earning his USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license and moving on to operate charter catamarans. Now starting his 7th year in the term-charter industry, Brad has also earned an advanced scuba certification and enjoys sharing cooking and guide duties with his wife. An innate naturalist, he loves identifying fish and watching their behavior. He loves life most when guiding snorkel and hiking excursions in the beautiful Virgin Islands and when winding down with our always-interesting guests after a memorable day.
Kristi Marquart has a diverse background within the charter boat and restaurant industries. Her culinary interest sparked at an early age in her family’s restaurant and brewery in Kansas, where she worked every position throughout high school and college. Eager to grow in the hospitality industry after graduating from KU, Kristi went on to manage three successful restaurant openings across the country with a company that believed in serving real food sourced from American farmers. She has always loved to cook for friends and family but it was her experience working alongside talented chefs and restaurateurs that ultimately groomed Kristi for her role as a professional yacht chef. Kristi recently expanded her culinary repertoire while attending the Ashburton Cookery School in England, where she trained under talented chefs with Michelin star backgrounds. Her cuisine style utilizes fresh ingredients that bring both color and flavor to the plate, and her menus are made with the guests’ preferences in mind. Kristi loves the creative freedom of serving beautiful meals that become a conversation piece over the table.
Kristi also holds a USCG 100-ton Master Captain’s license, a bachelor's degree in environmental science, an advanced diver certification, and 12 years of experience handling various boats along the coasts of California, Georgia, South Carolina, and throughout the entire Eastern Caribbean. This is her tenth season operating charter boats in the Virgin Islands. Kristi & Brad are honored to call Get Along home and will ensure your vacation is the kind you smile about for years to come.

After college he spent nearly a decade in hospitality management. Prior to finding his passion as a Merchant Marine he managed an event venue and Historic Bed and Breakfast in Amelia Island. In early 2017, Sy stumbled upon the beautiful islands of the Florida Keys. Although initially a three month sabbatical from work sailing on a friends Cheoy Lee, the journey quickly changed his life forever. The crystal clear waters and fruitful life offered in Key West captured his heart. Three of the past four years he has spent sailing catamarans for FURY Water Adventures.
Specializing in snorkeling, backcountry mangrove tours, and parasailing.
Born in Perth, Western Australia in 1988 and raised in the harbor city of Darwin, Northern Territory. Kara is the oldest of eight adventurous children raised in the bush of the Outback. Her father inspired the love of the sea with regular sails along the coast of northern Australia and throughout neighboring Indonesia. After a career driving haul trucks in the mines of Australia she set off to explore the world. Living throughout Indonesia, Thailand, and Europe she eventually found her way to the US. After a two year stay in New York City she found her way to eclectic Key West, Fl in 2016, soon there after taking work as a crew member with FURY Water Adventures.
Sy and Kara’s love for each other started with their mutual love for the ocean. They met while working with FURY and living on neighboring boats in the mooring field of Key West. They have spent the last 3 years together growing as a couple as well as individuals. Kara worked as chef and mate for a charter spearfishing company as well as working during the summers as ground support and chef for a TP52 Series Team in Europe. Sy has grown from mating on 65’ catamarans to becoming a proficient captain of the vessels, and eventually becoming fluent with all the catamarans in the FURY portfolio. Together these guys have driven across two countries and circumnavigated the continent of Australia in their faithful LandCruiser. They are a polished well rounded duo who aren’t afraid to roll their sleeves up in the name of adventure.
