AZURIA GUESTS COMMENTS
I have been very lucky and have spent over a dozen weeks sailing on Catamarans over the last several years. One of my best experiences was spending three weeks this season (2018) on a Cat called Azuria. From the moment I boarded, I could tell this was going to be one of the best experiences I have had sailing. The yacht was so clean and Mark and Sally our crew had paid attention to every detail prior to us even coming on board. Once on board we learned all our safety things and the fun began instantly. Every anchorage to every cocktail to every snack and even every meal was incredible and we could not have needed anything more. Mark and Sally run an amazing operation. They make your vacation relaxing, fun and you learn something new each and every day. I would highly recommend sailing with them for the ultimate sailing charter experience. I will be back in 2019 and if you are considering a crewed Yacht vacation get on Azuria with Mark and Sally, it’s superb!! – Jeff
HOW DID YOU ENJOY YOUR CHARTER? It was outstanding. Just the right amount of activity and relaxation.
Food was fantastic
DID YOU FIND THE CREW FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING? PLEASE COMMENT. They were exceptionally accommodating.
WAS THE YACHT CLEAN, WELL-MAINTAINED AND COMFORTABLE FOR YOUR GROUP? Very clean and lots of water sports. Great size for the four of us.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE QUALITY OF MEALS SERVED ON BOARD? Outstanding. Sally and Mark create fantastic meals. Three great meals
a day, fresh fruit, terrific desserts and great cocktails.
MAY WE USE YOUR NAME AS A REFERENCE? YES __XX_____
Mark & Sally
People often ask me why we always seem to return year after year to the BVI. Is it the Sun, the Water, the Beaches, or the Sailing.
But the truth is it’s THE TWO OF YOU.
You have become friends, GOOD FRIENDS and we totally enjoy your company. We love the way you make us ffel so comfortable.
We were both glad we were able to bring our family, to understand why we just love to be with YOU TWO, now they know
Mark & Sally –
Talking with Jeff and Laura about this trip – we have very high expectations. You’ve exceeded them all!!
Thank you so much for a wonderful trip. We loved EVERYTHING.
If you ever make it to Colorado – we’d love to share our mountains with you!
Jean and Tim
Mark & Sally
Where to begin?
ANOTHER incredible, wonderful, delicious week!
It went too quickly. We will take home our clothes, extra pounds, and so many WONDERFUL MEMORIES, but leave behind a part of our hearts here.
You both are very special to us all, and we’ll never forget you. MANY MANY THANKS FOR EVERYTHING – we love you!
Mark and Karen
To hate is an easy lazy thing,
BUT, to love takes strength that everyone has, but not all are willing to practice ……….. and both of your strength to love and care for us has made this trip UNFORGETTABLE!!!!
From Karl, Stephanie and Lauren
Dear Sally & Mark
This has truly been one of the best vacations we have ever taken!
The food, the weather, the hospitality have all been unsurpassed. We loved getting to know your beautiful islands, and getting to know you!
Now, as we head home to our 4th Nor’easter blizzard this March, we appreciate more than ever what a paradise you have shown us and we are determined to come back again soon!
Fair seas and good winds to you both
The B. family
A huge thank you to Captain Mark and Chef Sally, the amazing crew of #sailazuria, for the incredible week we just spent in the BVI’s. The meals prepared by chef Sally were outstandingly delicious! The service was impeccable! Captain Mark and Sally made the entire trip entertaining, relaxing, and fun for all. It was as truly the best vacation we’ve ever had! If you’re looking for an all inclusive family or adult get away I highly recommend this crew and yacht! #bvi #bluewater #bestvacationever
Mark and Sally,
“God Bless you—you are going to die” My new favorite quote. Can’t thank you enough for everything!
Mark and Sally, Oh my frick this trip has been speechless. Thank you for sharing stories that seriously intrigued me and keeping us safe and full of food. Please never change because you guys are the best!
P.S. You have also inspired me to travel and really make the most of life
Mark and Sally, you two have given us a memory that tops our adventures! What a CLASS ACT with you – from island to island you have given us knowledge, experience, friendship, good drink, fantastic meals, and the respect of love for people.
How do you improve on Paradise? ADD MARK AND SALLY!!
Thank you both for the best vacation of our lives.
See you SOON!!
Love Ron, Jen, Ronnie, Natalie and Sam

March 1-8, 2017 – on previous yacht Viking Dream
I am following the questions on your Post Charter Review to provide you feedback on our recent charter on the Viking Dream.
Let me preface my review by saying this sailing adventure was one of, or maybe the best vacation I’ve ever taken. Sailing on the Viking Dream was beyond all my expectations.
The Viking Dream is an exquisite boat. Every inch of it is immaculate. It is Mark and Sally’s home and they take great pride in it and it shows. The boat is spacious and extremely comfortable. I loved swinging in the hammock chair or lounging in the bean bag chairs and of course sunning on the deck. The state rooms are very good size (for boat living) and are appointed with plenty of cabinets, lockers and shelves to accommodate all of your gear.You want for nothing on the Viking Dream. Sally and Mark make sure you have everything and are always comfortable. Truly, we were treated like royalty. It was the most wonderful experience. On board the Viking Dream are all the water toys and equipment as advertised. My sisters, mom and I had a ball kayaking and snorkeling and tubing and paddle boarding. (There was even more to do like fishing and windsurfing, but we opted for more relaxing!)
Mark was great with making suggestions for activities and getting us to the best places to do them. He was always ready and willing to get our equipment ready for us.
Mark is a captain extraordinaire. Besides catering to his guests, he sails the Viking Dream with amazing skill and ease. Sally is his first mate. Together they work like a fine tuned machine, in tandem, seamlessly sailing and managing the boat.With Sally and Mark at the helm, you don’t have a care in the world.
Sally is a chef beyond compare. She treated us to 3 meals a day ( and appetizers at cocktail hour) that dazzled both my taste buds and my eyes. Each was an exquisite masterpiece worthy of a photo in a cookbook. Day in and day out we were awed by Sally’s decadent creations. Additionally, Sally considered all of our food preferences. I LOVED every dish she prepared (and was stuffed at the end of each meal.)
With 100% confidence I would recommend sailing with Mark and Sally on the Viking Dream. ( I already have!) If I ever have the opportunity to charter a boat again I would only sail on the Viking Dream.
Very truly yours,
February 2017 (previous yacht Viking Dream)
Mark & Sally
What a way to ring in my 50th year! This trip has EXCEEDED our expectations in every way. We knew whichever port was around the corner or what delicious food would be put on the table, it was all nothing less than perfect.
We couldnt have asked for better hosts and company. We hope to set sail with you both and the Viking Dream again!
Thanks again for the PERFECT FAMILY VACATION
Joe, Christie, Bennett and Hannah
PS: Diet starts on Monday we have NEVER feasted on such amazing food!

Dear Mark and Sally
We had a WONDERFUL WEEK!
We have been pampered beyond our expectations. The three meals each day, and everything else have been fabulous.
The presentation of the food was outstanding. We appreciated and admire the work you do for your guests. Having sailed ourselves before, we know what effort it takes to make everything work.

Thank you so much for sharing your Dream and islands with our family!
You are both totally awesome!
Sally in the Galleys gourmet creations in that small space are nothing short of miraculous!

Thank you for making this a dream Vacation. We hope to be soon Living the Dream again.

December 2016 (previous yacht Viking Dream)
“Just back from another tremendous vacation on Viking Dream. The difference was this was our first trip with other couples, sans children, making the Captian’s poison of the day even more enjoyable and the nights under the stars romantic (trampolines are fun). Mark and Sally’s knowledge of bays meant that we not only had a fabulous lunch at Deadman’s Beach with a steel drum band one day, a few nights later they found a secluded bay with just one other boat (during the peak of the charter season). We found so many different fish, coral, and fans, all with incredible colors, at the snorkeling spots they took us too we spent cocktail hour going through the books and talking about what we’d seen. I’ve always loved Sally’s cooking and it was particularly delicous not having to limit for child’s preferences. I love taking the helm of Viking Dream as we cruise down the channel, all enjoying the spectacular views. A truly enjoyable vacation.”
– Andrew Z. Dec. 2016
November 2016, Multi repeat guests the Ditges wrote a fabulous poem! (previous yacht Viking Dream)
here once was a yacht named Viking
In which Mark and Sally took a liking.
They escaped from the Swan to the Boat we are on.
One day we went sailing, when the winds were prevailing;
The spinnaker was raised, to all awe and praise!
At nine knots we were cruising, no one got a bruising, as we were all boozing!
Captain Mark led us on snorkelling excursions, often in places with real Fat Virgins.
Saw lots of coral & pretty fish, however Turtles were amiss.
On Saba Rock what a disgrace, when the Tarpon splashed Lauras face.
Back to the boat we went,
Viking Vibrations were spent!
Our palates were teased with all meals we were pleased.
Captains poison by Mark, includes stormy and dark.
The Admiral in the galley, creating dishes by Sally.
The Dreams been visited by Tom and Pete, and other guests that often repeat.
Who all try not to spill wine on the seat.
The red all soaked in not sure whether Cab or Zin,
But Tom and Petes napkins held it all in!:)
Pirate jokes were told they never get old!
The Trivia flies, Captain Mark is so wise.
We remember not one, so when we are back for more fun, booze and sun,
Repeating questions will fool everyone!
Sally won twice at the game of dice.
Captain called foul, saying it wasnt nice.
We were all the crew with nothing to do,
But to try hard to drink all of the brew.
All hail to the Queen,
This trip was a DREAM!
If you are reading this you know what we mean!!

Laura, Jeff, Robin, and Bill
June 2016 (previous yacht Viking Dream)
We had a great time on Viking Dream. The boat was immaculate at all times. Sally’s meals were delicious and beautifully plated. Mark was great both in educating all of us with his daily trivia questions and mapping out our daily journey, as well as carting the kids around endlessly for water sports. My mom enjoyed every second of the trip.
Thank you for all your help,
April 2016 (previous yacht Viking Dream)

Its difficult to describe on a page how incredible the experience was that you provided us this week. The boat was beautiful and spotless and extremely cozy and comfortable.
The food was so delicious that we cannot fathom how you could create it in a galley.
The sights and activities were so much fun that we cant decide what our favourites were.The nature walk with Mark? The Hot Dog? Snorkelling? Cow Wreck Beach?
With your indepth knowledge of the area, history, nature and sailing; every experience was that much more meaningful and FUN.
Meeting the two of you, and hearing your stories was also a joy. Not only did we feel spoiled beyond words, we also felt incredible safe in your well organised, thoughtful and careful hands.
Thank you so very much for everything and please do visit us in Rhode Island

Thank you for giving us a very memorable trip. From the time we stepped on board you created a wonderful, fun and family like experience. You led us to the best spots to snorkel, best for overnight and best for seeing the beautiful islands.
We cant imagine doing this with any other boat. We cant thank you enough for our wonderful vacation. We wont have another Rum Punch, Painkiller or even a touch of rum without these memories!
Kelly & Mark
Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
Wonderful sailing, snorkeling and friendship in between 3 gourmet meals a day. Plus appetizers that we often mistook for the meal itself!
Just a perfect week. We hope to see Captain Cocktail and Admiral Sally next year for another adventure. That gives us about 12 months to work off the excess!
Vacations don’t get any better than this! We will miss you Mark & Sally.
