Marco & Eugenia can’t wait to welcome you to the BVI!
Marco has always been attracted to sailing and the marine world, since he was a kid. He started delivering yachts and teaching sailing when he was still studying at school, and after a few years spent working in the construction industry, he decided to chase his dreams by doing what he loves: being on the water. He started his career as a professional skipper in 2016 after leaving his previous job when he decided to spend a few months sailing around Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland over the winter months. After a few seasons as a skipper in the Med, exploring Croatia, Italy, and Greece, and some offshore passages, he decided to set up his own charter company on the North West Coast of Italy, where he met Eugenia, and they decided to keep travelling together.
He is a very enthusiastic and positive skipper with a focus on safety on board, and he is always ready to share some interesting stories. He’s always attentive to the guests needs, making sure they are having the best time.
Eugenia was born in Ukraine and grew up in Italy. She attended hotel management school, where she discovered her love for cooking and her passion for hospitality. Five years ago, she started travelling around the world, and she asked herself, how do I combine cooking with my passion for travelling? After she met Marco, they started sailing together and working in the yachting industry. As she grew up in Italy, she perfected herself in Italian cuisine, which boasts a heritage of very old recipes but is also revised in a modern way, a simple but at the same time complex cuisine for the quality of flavours and tastes. Her passion is making pasta! Furthermore, she has travelled to Asia many times, and she also has a passion for Oriental recipes. She also loves baking and experimenting with new tastes and flavours, which is also why, with her cuisine, every day is a surprise, where guests discover on the table an explosive mix of passion, love, and attention to detail on their plates.
Marco and Eugenia have worked together for two seasons and shared many adventures from sailing together in the Mediterranean to climbing, hiking trips or surfing. They share their passion for the sea and new adventures, and after they started working together, they found themselves to be a strong team, taking their professional backgrounds with them to provide the best service for their guests and unforgettable moments.
