About Derek Hunsinger

Captain Mark Turner grew up in a small village in Leicestershire, England, before moving to the US over 20 years ago. When Mark first moved to the US he lived in Santa Cruz, California where he learned to sail & would go fishing for salmon and halibut in the Monterey Bay. Later he moved to Florida where his passion for being on the water & sailing lead him to become a sailing instructor. He discovered the Virgin Islands around 15 years ago and since that first visit always dreamed of living the island lifestyle. Finally, in 2015 he made that dream a reality. He is really excited to share his passion for sailing and the island way of life with guests enjoying a BVI crewed yacht charter aboard Mariann.

Mark is a U.S. Coast Guard Captain, RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore, open water certified scuba diver, and a U.S. Certified Sailing Instructor. He enjoys traveling to new places and meeting people, making new friends along the way. He enjoys being on the water more than being on land, so its no surprise that his favorite sports other than sailing are wake boarding, scuba diving, surfing, and kiteboarding. On land, he also enjoys watching his favorite football team Leicester City.

Mark’s sailing experience includes sailing the Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. His favorite sailing grounds, however, are right here in the Virgin Islands.His local knowledge of hidden places and local hot spots enables him to take his guests to the best places throughout the islands during their BVI crewed yacht charter.

First Mate/Chef Heather Hessler joins Mark aboard MariAnn, and is well known as a highly regarded chef working in the charter yacht industry.

Born and raised in NJ, Heather’s dad had her up on a surfboard since she was three years old. Her passion for the ocean started then. She fell in love with the Virgin Islands after traveling here as a competitive surfer and attending the University of the Virgin Islands.
