    • Captain: Cristian SequenziaCaptain: Cristian Sequenzia

      CAPTAIN CRISTIAN SEQUENZIA

      Cristian Sequenzia, friends call him Cri (pronounced Cree), is the descendant of a proud and storied ancestry. He grew up in ancient Ortigia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic island is at the heart of the naturally fortified harbor of Siracusa, Sicily, Italy. It is the birthplace and homeland of many famous seafarers. Cri, with his knowledge and passion for seamanship, is a credit to these forefathers.

      Cri was sailing with his father as far back as he can remember. He had his sea legs before he could run, and was swimming, diving and fishing as a small boy. After college, he went to work for a company that manufactured special parts for yacht construction. He specialized in carbon fiber composites, learning about yachts from the earliest stages of the build process.

      In 2012, Cri brought his expertise to Sagittarius’ extensive refit. “When I had the offer to start working on Sagittarius I didn’t think twice. I quit my job to spend a year and a half on board, eight months of refitting and 10 months sailing around Europe and the Caribbean. I love sharing my passion for the sea with our guests; diving, snorkeling, swimming off secret beaches, exploring remote coves, pointing out turtles and birds' nests. I also love having fun water skiing, wakeboarding, and every kind of fishing.” With his many talents and joie de vivre, guests on board Sagittarius are certain to love sharing in all the fun too!

      Mate: Ilona FricovaMate: Ilona Fricova

      MATE ILONA FRICOVA:

      Ilona grew up in an idyllic setting, in a storybook Czech village surrounded by woods. The family’s daily routine included caring for lots of animals and tending the garden. They shared a deep love and respect for nature, animals and people. Ilona’s parents had built a canoe, and the family enjoyed most holidays on rivers and lakes. Together they spent time canoeing, camping and fishing. Ilona got her first fishing license when she was just 10 years old, and she has been fishing ever since. Today, she happily shares fishing tips and fish prep and cooking tips with interested charter guests.

      Ilona is very energetic. She excels at all types of sports, including tennis and swimming. She modestly mentions that she “collected a few trophies in snow skiing competitions in the Czech mountains”. She is also an avid diver with many certifications including Rescue and Deep Diver, and has achieved Yachtmaster Coastal Certification. She is a very patient instructor with guests of all ages interested in learning to snorkel, or manage the yacht toys. Family charters are her favorite, organizing activities for everyone to spend quality time together.

      Four years ago, Ilona began sailing in the Canary Islands and the Balearics. She recognized immediately that yachting is an amazing facet of the hospitality industry. It ignited her passion. She said, “I kept thinking about people who are very busy, a rushed lifestyle with a stressful daily routine. Almost everyone has experienced this. It can be very difficult to slow down, escape from busy work routines. Everyone needs to relax. My goal is to help by providing guests the time and space to relax, to switch off and re-energize. That is the most important part of a good vacation. I take care to do my best for my guests to have fun and create unforgettable memories. And what a pleasure it is to consider this as a job!”

    • 25-31 March 2018 Grenadines
      Note from broker PW:
      I received an email during the charter saying the trip was great. Thanks again for taking such good care of them.

      15-23 February, 2018 ~ BVI's ~ Loved the Entire Experience!
      The captain was super! He dealt with a port engine problem allowing us to continue our cruise (minor problem - repaired and now fully operational). As for the crew, a person couldn't have asked for better service from all aspects of their duties.Great work and great people. The itinerary was 5 star, we couldn't have asked for more.Chef Riccardo was very good as was his meal planning. Alexandra's customer service at the bar and overall attention to us was outstanding. Couple that with her sweet personality she is an asset to any crew. We loved her!We all loved the entire experience of our trip!

      It was amazing!
      The crew were absolutely fantastic. Only thing wrong is we should have done longer!
      The food and service were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble.
      I would recommend the yacht with the the captain and crew to anyone

      Kind regards.

      26-30 March, 2017 ~ BVI ~ Wonderful!
      Note from broker:
      Just thought you would like to know that Stacey sent me a very nice text this morning. They had a great time on Sagittarius and specifically stated the crew made the trip wonderful.Thank you for all of your help and efforts in pulling off a last minute miracle with fisheries!

      March 18- 25, 2017 - Absolutely Outstanding!

      Hello Sagittarius Crew,
      Thank you so much for all your hard work in making what sounds like an absolutely outstanding charter experience for my clients! Please find below a their wonderful review. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to send many more clients onboard Sagittarius. I also hope to visit onboard my self sometime very soon; maybe November Boat Show?

      The Charter was amazing in every way. The Catamaran was beautiful, the crew was an absolute delight and we definitely have decided that any future vacations will have to be a charter. Please see my responses to the evaluation questions below and let me know igf you have any questions. Again, we can not say enough good things about our experience aboard the Sagittarius and the exceptional crew.

      Evaluation Questionnaire:
      Were you able to locate and board your yacht easily and at the agreed time? - Yes, we actually were able to find the Catamaran in the marina the night before our charter.
      How would you describe the state of your Charter Yacht? - The Catamaran was in amazing condition. Clean, decorated and adorned beautifully. Provisioned wonderfully. Everything exceeded our expectations at least ten fold.
      Were all the advertised equipment onboard and in good condition? - Absolutely
      How would you describe your Captain and Crew? - The Captain and Crew were outstanding and amazing. Words alone can not describe these wonderful people. They were extremely warm and welcoming. Knowledgeable, funny, fun to be with, caring and each of them went out of their way to assure that our group had an amazing holiday. Captain Piero was a gracious host, a skilled captain and navigator. Riccardo was an exceptional cook who made sure we never went hungry and created some of the best meals we have ever had. Not to mention his kind demeanor and personality. Christian was always on the go making sure that all of the systems were operational and that we always had what we needed. Last, but by no means least, Alexandra was a blessing. Her caring personality and bright smile made each and everyone of us feel as though we were her only concern. The entire crew and captain went well above and beyond to ensure we had a great time and each of them became part of our family.
      Were you able to partake in the activities and itinerary you desired?- Absolutely and then some. The Captain made wonderful recommendations well as provided expert insight on our itinerary choices.
      What were your favorite activities and highlights during your Charter? -I would say our favorite highlight was when the Yacht was under sail and not on power. The quiet peacefulness was awe inspiring. I would also say that our Captain and Crew, and our interactions with them were some of our favorite highlights as well. Guana Island was not too shabby either. :-)
      How would you describe the quality of the meals and beverages served onboard? - All of the meals and beverages were top notch. Better than what one can get in most fine dining establishments. I would rate the meals as 5 star (our of 5) and the beverages as 5 out of 5 as well.
      Please add any additional comments, whether it’s constructive criticism or describing your satisfaction and appreciation. - I think I speak for each and every guest when I say that we cannot express enough our extreme satisfaction and appreciation to BROKER and The Captain and Crew of the Catamaran Sagittarius for making our holiday dreams and wishes come true. Everything from the first contact with Jessica inquiring about charters, to the moment we stepped of the Sagittarius was phenomenal. We each have commented on how we can't wait to do this again and how our vacationing experience from this point forward, has forever changed. Thank you all so very much for everything.
      Sincerely,Kevin H.

      Aug. 1-8, 2015 - BVI's

      You guys have been amazing. I feel like we started the trip by becoming fast friends and ended as if we were family. We had the most amazing trip from the first sail to Anegada to the last day in the appropriately named Bitter End Yacht Club. The rope swing, wake-boarding, moonlight tube rides and diving were spectacular. Our favorite part was getting to know you two incredible people. I’ll never forget our long chats on the back deck. You guys are too kind!! We look forward to keeping in touch and we WILL see you again. 

      Warm regards, Brandon, Jack, Meredith, Laura

      Thank you for your hospitality. I loved everything about this trip! Getting to know you both was a special bonus to a wonderful trip.Glad to have new friends with sweet hearts. Best trip of my life. I will think of you often.

      Love much, Meredith


      July, 2015 - BVI's
      From the moment we stepped on the boat we felt like we were at home! Captain Tony and Chef Paola have been extremely accommodating and absolutely wonderful. They have shown us many beautiful places here in the BVI’s and have helped create many wonderful family memories, from snorkeling near Norman Island and Cooper Island, to wakeboarding and tubing in the ocean, and the list goes on! Captain Tony and Paola are always up for anything and are always willing to go the extra mile. We cannot express our thankfulness and gratefulness enough. Paola has made the most amazing food during our entire stay and has inspired our Italian food and homemade ice cream palates!

      We have had many laughs and will carry many fond memories within us of the special Sagittarius, Captain Tony and Paola. They are like family to us and we hope to spend many more adventures with them in the future at sea. Until we meet again!
      Don, Tiffany, Brooks, Adriana

      25th April - 2nd May - 10pax charter in BVI by broker and her family
      The catamaran Sagittarius is very nice and comfortable, 5 double cabins (1 master + 4 double) with ensuite facilities and separate shower, 2-3 crew in separate quarters, solar panels, watermaker, ice maker, dishwasher, washing machine, compressor, 2 paddle surf…
      During my holiday there was another captain, Tony (the new one) is arriving now and he’s very professional (he’s also dive master).
      The hostess, Paola, is a very kind person and she cooks very well.
      I’m sure that all clients will be satisfied!

      1-12 April - British Virgin Islands
      " The yacht is wonderful, and especially the crew that ennobles her is outstanding.
      There is no starry restaurant or masterchef that bears comparison with the appetizers and the kitchen of Paola . The Captain is the soul of the Sea ... after Cristoforo Colombo.
      We will miss you"
       
      Note: "masterchef" is referred to the popular television "chef competition", and "starry" should be translated as "michelin guide star": in italian "stellato" refers to the "stelle" (the valuation stars, from one to three, that the Michelin Restaurants Guide attributes to the top restaurants).
       
      Note from Broker: 
      Regarding the charter I can tell you that our clients were more than happy, they told this was the best holiday in their life… food excellent, great crew, the boat is maintained in excellent condition, all works properly.
