Come on board AZURIA and truly have your DREAM VACATION OF A LIFETIME, on our immaculately maintained catamaran.
Mark and Sally have a high and extensive reputation for been a fun loving, highly knowledgeable, and some of the most experienced crew in the BVI!
This is demonstrated by the high number of repeat guests who come back again and again, for more relaxation, pampering and fun.
Please read our guest comments! Mark and Sally chartered for many years on their own catamaran, VIKING DREAM until she was sadly lost in Hurricane Irma in 2017.
When Mark and Sally first considered the life of the sailing couple, they were on a year's leave from their corporate jobs in the UK, trying to find some balance in their until-then crazy lives. Sally had been Training and HR manager with a major British retail group, sorting out employees' problems, whilst Mark had been on the other side of retail, setting up high-end malls in airports. He had 250 staff and 25 managers reporting to him and, when he wasn't travelling for business, he was dealing with the inevitable headaches of management.
Throughout their many years together, sailing, travel and outdoor pursuits have been the hub of their relationship. So in 2001 they embarked on an invigorating world tour for 12 months. They travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia and Europe. Their yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters, and a TransAtlantic Crossing! On returning from travelling, they decided to turn a leisure activity they love into a lifestyle.
Cruising the islands and seeking out that idyllic palm fringed bay, where the sea, the sky and the sand invoke that feeling of total tranquillity, and being at one with nature, is what they love to share with their guests.
If youd like to learn about sailing they are both qualified instructors and love to impart their knowledge, but are equally happy to pass you a cushion and bring you an iced drink while they sail the yacht!
They are also very passionate about food and presenting their guests with fine cuisine, wines and cocktails. Sallys dishes are an exceptional variety of styles, reflecting her extensive travels and experience of different cultures. Marks cocktails are legendary, both self styled and classics. They are also known as Captain Cocktail and Sally in the Galley!
Mark - Youll find me in the water as much as on it, and I love to lead guided snorkelling safaris. Pointing out the amazing richness and variety of fish and wildlife the Caribbean Islands have to offer. I also love to fish and delight in helping you tempt a nice Tuna or Mahi-Mahi to your lure, or a Bonefish to your fly. When at anchor you may like to take some tuition from me on learning to Windsurf. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to assist a total novice in getting up and sailing with a little guidance and encouragement.
Sally - Having sailed with my Father from before I could walk and having helped my Mother in the kitchen from an early age Ive always had a passion for sailing and food. Graduating from University in Food Technology I have loved creating dinner parties and varied social events or taking part in competitive sailing. I aspire to ensure our guests are able to relax, enjoy good cuisine, and have fun experiencing The Caribbean on their dream vacation.
We have always gelled as a team. Guests enthuse about our attention to detail, professionalism, hospitality, good humour and desire to live life to the full. We have many guests return again and again and refer us to their friends and family.
We are now in our 15th year of chartering and excel at creating very individual, personalized, unforgettable Holidays.
The 3rd time is a charm. Fantastic time on Azuria. Flamboyance of Flamingos, Mexican Train Dominoes. A Brilliant time AGAIN!!! Admiral Sally the food was fantastic, and Captain Mark Cocktails and Chart Chat are memories to remember!
Love this place, this crew, this boat! See you next year!
Love the Fabulous Ferris Family
What an amazing week with our boys on Azuria!! Mark and Sally are truly awesome at welcoming you to your home on the sea. They are so warm, and knowledgeable!! The boat is immaculate, spacious and a wonderful place to be for your trip of a lifetime. The craft cocktails flow and the food is so delicious....plentiful is an understatement.... I highly recommend Azuria to anyone wanting a first class vacation!

Our hearts are full. The Johnsons;
The Azuria is a beautiful boat and a great place to call home for a week. She is comfortable and pristine with plenty of space and toys to spread out, relax and enjoy the surroundings. Surroundings which include sun filled days, white sand beaches, and beautiful blue waters- in other words a picture post card.
That is just the backdrop for Mark and Sally to work their magic! They are warm and welcoming hosts that put us at ease from day one. Their hospitality, attention to detail and mixology and culinary skills have to be experienced to be believed. They had us spoiled. It was like eating in the best restaurants in town every night!! This was meant to be a once in a lifetime trip for us, but this was such an amazing adventure, we can’t imagine not doing it again!!" 😍
You certainly went overboard in your efforts to make sure everyone was happy aboard the Azuria. The special attention to individual tastes at meals, the work you did to tow the children around on the tube, the fantastic birthday celebration, the emphasis on safety did not go unnoticed. All four of us appreciated the chart talks and the meal planning sessions. While we were in the total relaxation mode, you were working hard behind the scenes. Thank you.
My most precious memories of the trip were the intimate discussions we were able to have with the grandkids. We had lots of time. It was a joy.
Austin’s mother reported that the last thing he said when he went to bed on Friday night was, “I wish I was still on the catamaran.”
The food to say the least, was amazing. Sally is a talented chef and each delicious meal was thoughtfully prepared and artfully presented. The Azuria is comfortable and very well maintained. Simply put, It was the best family vacation we’ve ever been on, and Mark and Sally’s hospitality has a lot to do with that. We are already looking forward to our next sail in 2020!
This was a Chess vacation not to be topped! From the beautifully appointed vessel, masterfully charted course ( accommodating lost luggage!), activities-o-plenty ( you know its a good trip if you can tucker out Connor!), a cocktail speciality each night, to the most truly amazing meals, dancing the night away with you at The Wonky Dog, the perfect Christmas day in Anegada completed with Christmas Crackers and Sally's beef tenderloin treat - YUM!
You have quickly found your way into out hearts most of all. All of your efforts, grace and hard work are so appreciated and never to be forgotten.
Celebrating Christmas and our 25th Anniversary with you on AZURIA was so special. Thank you, thank you! A toast to you for a happy and safe future ahead- "If you can't clink then wink" ;)
All our love.
Taylor,Charlotte, Connor, Catie, Phoebe and Bennett
Oh, and the boat was spotless, maintained, ship-shape, and spacious. They are both licensed captains and they know what they're doing.
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_____
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
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
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
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
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.
Thank you both for the best vacation of our lives.
See you SOON!!
Love Ron, Jen, Ronnie, Natalie and Sam
(and they will as they rebooked within 24hrs of returning home!)
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,
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!
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.

From the first day until the last minute spent with you (Mark and Sally), we enjoyed every minute & could not have imagined how much FUN we could have jam packed all in one week. The catamaran was always kept clean, the cabins were spacious and cosy, the food top notch gourmet; and Sally & Mark you were THE MOST WONDERFUL HOSTS!
Some of our favouites.

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!
Whenever Ben refuses to eat his greens, we will remind him of him eating Sallys.
Mark, thank you for your patience in entertaining the boys out on the water. You finally managed to tire out an 11 and 13 year old!
Thank you for making this a dream Vacation. We hope to be soon Living the Dream again.
Thank you Marjorie, Gaston, Andrew & Ben

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!!
An original poem by:
Laura, Jeff, Robin, and Bill
Thank you for all your help,
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
Marian, Beatrice, Victoria, Vivenne and Emma
If possible, our second visit with you was even better than our first. Cant wait for our next visit. Hopefully not so long between trips!
Lots of love Rick
Thank you for the great time! Cant wait until our next trip and all the fun we will have.
Lots of love.
DJ & Jim
Time of my life! You are wonderful hosts. Best time ever and hope to return again some day soon!
Thanks for everything.
Thank you for the best holiday we have had. The food and company were amazing. You offer the best charter in the BVI.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Brian & Baby Kyle
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.
Hank & Ruth
