About Azuria

Why book Azuria?

Relaxation.

It's lovely to walk onto a boat and instantly feel 'at home', and we definitely got this impression with Azuria. From the comfortable beds with lovely linens to the great lounging area in the salon, the whole boat invites you to settle in and make yourself right at home - add to this the lovely crew of Mark and Sally and you're all set!

Azuria is a 51 ft sailing catamaran, launched in 2011, and is finished to a very high quality and boasting every modern convenience. She is the owners' version so the master suite occupies the whole hull with a large bathroom and separate shower stall plus a comfortable seating area. There are two further queen size staterooms both with oversized ensuite bathrooms. The salon is gorgeous, very modern with a low, L-shaped sofa with lovely bright accent cushions. The whole appearance is light and inviting. There is air conditioning throughout the yacht.

The cockpit follows the same theme as the interior with neutral upholstery and brightly coloured cushions complimenting the teak decking. The whole area is well protected from the elements with drop down shades and a large bimini.

Meet Mark & Sally

Cruising the islands and seeking out that idyllic palm fringed bay, where the sea, the sky and the sand invoke that feeling of total tranquility, and being at one with nature, is what we love to share with our guests.

Throughout our many years together, our passion for sailing, travel, nature and outdoor pursuits have been the hub of our relationship. In 2001 we embarked on an invigorating world tour for 12 months. We travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia and Europe. Our 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, we decided to turn a leisure activity we love into a lifestyle.

Many of our guests, who return again and again, comment on our love, knowledge, and respect for each other, our environment and for these beautiful Islands. They are also pleasantly surprised to say they arrived on ‘Azuria’ to two strangers, but left two good friends. Especially enjoying our humor and love of life, as well as our attention to detail and seamless teamwork. There are many remarks about how they have ‘not felt so relaxed in years’, and have ‘never laughed so much’!

If you’d like to learn about sailing we’re both qualified instructors and love to impart our knowledge, but are equally happy to pass you a cushion and bring you an iced drink while we sail the yacht!

We are also very passionate about food and presenting our guests with fine cuisine, wines and cocktails. Sally’s dishes are an exceptional variety of styles, reflecting her extensive travels and experience of different cultures. Mark’s cocktails are legendary, both self styled and classics. We are also known as ‘Captain Cocktail’ and ‘Sally in the Galley’!

You’ll find me in the water as much as on it, and I love to lead guided snorkeling 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.

Having sailed with my Father from before I could walk and having helped my Mum in the kitchen from an early age I’ve 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 lots of fun experiencing The Caribbean on their dream vacation. We have always gelled as a team. Guests enthuse about our professionalism, hospitality, good humor and desire to live life to the full.
