Captain Steve teaches ASA Sailing Courses aboard Mari’s Leonardo


Captain Steve looks forward to welcoming you aboard Mari’s Leonardo

Captain Steve holds a 100 Ton USCG Captain’s license as well as an ASA Instructor’s credential and is also an ASA Instructor Qualifier.

Steve’s long sailing history started in Kentucky, then the West coast, where he still owns and sails his Islander 28 sloop. Having delivered boats up and down both the West and East coasts for years, he decided on catamaran sailing and had Mari’s Leonardo built in France and sailed it from the West coast of France to Annapolis, then onto the Bahamas and finally into the BVI, USVI, and West Indies chain.

Steve’s charter philosophy is based on the belief that the guest’s needs are of the utmost importance and everyday aboard Leonardo he is committed to not only meeting those needs, but exceeding expectations in every way.

Steve’s wife Mari, whom the boat was named after, also is an avid sailor with an ASA certification. She sometimes will accompany Steve on charter. Leonardo, the second half of this cat’s namesake was their big red-haired golden retriever… oh, Mari is also a tall red-headed gal.

Steve and Mari are both experienced in the service industry. Mari is presently a flight attendant and Steve is a semi-retired entrepreneur of a NW real estate management firm. Both have been sailing for many years and now have realized a new lifestyle where they share the fun of sailing and teaching with others. Steve and Mari extend a warm welcome and eagerly await the opportunity to deliver the most, fun-in-the-sun sailing adventures.
