Mari and I are both familiar with the service industry needs by the experience we have gained through our other work endeavors.  Mari is presently a flight attendant  and I am a semi-retired entrepreneur of a NW real estate management firm.  Both of us have been sailing for many years and now have made it a major part of a new lifestyle, but still wanting to share the fun of sailing with others. 

I have a USCG Captain's license and hold several ASA Instructors' credentials and a ASA Instructor Qualifier.  Mari is an avid sailor with ASA certification, too.  One  goal of many while skippering MARI'S LEONARDO is to be able to teach those future sailors that want it, some of the ASA courses during their holiday sail, thus going home with some terrific sailing skills and an authentic sailing credential that can be used to charter your own future sailing rig.  This would be pre-arranged with an accredited ASA school of which Steve would be the instructor.

After delivering several boats from the Bahamas to Annapolis and back again to the Bahamas in past seasons, Steve has been busy teaching ASA classes in Annapolis, MD, Olympia, WA , Belize, CA and Portland, OR while waiting for the hurricane seasons to diminish, then back to the southern latitudes of USVI, Spanish Virgins, St. Croix, and BVI in the Fall.

S/V MARI'S LEONARDO, is presently birthed near Crown Bay Marina, in the USVI next to St. Thomas waiting for more fun to show up and then getting back to work.

Come and join in on this season’s fun beginning November 10th through June 15th each year.

Skipper Steve

The crew, Mari when she's available and I, welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best sailing holiday time and most fun while enjoying this sailing adventure.
