Halle and Mark run this beautiful yacht
“Mark, A south African born professional sailor and passionate free diver, raised along the beautiful and wild waters of the Indian ocean. Mark spent the early part of his career running Yacht deliveries, and Charters in the Seychelles and Madagascar before his desire for adventure took him on a 3-month journey across the Indian and the Atlantic Ocean towards the infamous and pristine British Virgin Islands. It was in the British Virgin Islands that Mark met Halle, and together they have been an unstoppable duo.
Halle, born in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains in North Carolina, has a natural Southern Charm and a passion for the water after spending years swimming competitively. Halle loves to create a menu based on your needs while exploring flavorful combinations that will have your taste buds wanting more. With a passion for food- and training from the award-winning Ashburton Cookery School in England- Halle will deliver a menu full of dishes you’ll be talking about long after your vacation is over.”
Mark and Halle recently finished the build of Barefeet Retreat in South Africa and will set sail around the Southern Tip of Africa and across the Atlantic to start their chartering in the Islands for more adventure-filled vacations.
Guest Reviews on Mark and Halle Crewed Catamaran
From a recent charter guest of Mark and Halle
“My wife Lori and I just ended a 7-day sail/trip on the Amazing Grace with Mark Wattrus and Halle Miller along with three other couples that sailed around St. Thomas, St. John and several of the British Virgin Islands.
This experience was one of our top vacations ever. Mark and Halle made us feel comfortable and “at home” immediately.
What amazed me the most was how Mark and Halle could accommodate everyone’s needs and desires. For example, I love to fish and while I knew this was not a fishing excursion, Mark got me on a beautiful King Mackerel on our first day of sailing. I continued to catch fish throughout the trip.
Others in our party wanted to snorkel, hike, “see the sights,” explore spots on land, etc. and Mark and Halle were able to do everything they wanted to do. No one was ever left out – everyone was happy engaging in their desired choices. Mark continued to tell us, “If you want to do anything, just tell me, and we can probably do it.” I did not think it would be possible at first, but Mark and Halle did it and made it look easy. Mark invited several of us to watch him free dive for lobster, which was an unbelievable sight to behold, not to mention a delicious lunch with his catch.
I do not exaggerate when I say that Mark is capable of doing just about anything and doing it well. He can fix anything that is broken and solve any issue, big or small, that arises at sea. And, he does it with ease, calm, and professionalism. You will not find a more professional yacht captain.
Food is normally not something important to me, but Halle changed all that. Every breakfast, lunch, and dinner she prepared was magnificent and normally done from scratch. Her constant smiling face and friendly demeanor further electrified our experience.”
