Mark & Julie Hefflin
Julie and I have tried to live our lives by this moto. After several years exploring the Caribbean, searching for the perfect place for us, we finally settled on St. Thomas. So with that thought as our guide, we packed up and moved to begin our new adventure. Now we live within a few miles of the beach where we got married.
After over 20 years in Travel and Tourism, followed by 15 years as a general contractor, it was time to get back to my hospitality roots. With that, we took over the ownership and operations of Virgin Islands Day Sailing. I’m excited to spend the next portion of my life on the water showing off the beauty of the Virgin Islands and making new friends.
Come visit us soon.
Meet “Frances Anne”
Frances Anne is a 39' Beneteau, Cyclades. When Beneteau built this boat, the focus from the start was on the charter market. She has 3 spacious cabins. And with 2 heads (bathrooms), a large salon and a spacious cockpit area, there’s plenty of space for everyone. Plus, the access to the swim platform thru the walk-through transom makes getting on and off much easier.
“Frances Anne” is named after my wife’s mother who passed away from brain cancer in 2016. We named the boat after her as a constant reminder of her beauty, confidence, strength and the courage she showed throughout her life every day .
We invite you to join us for an extraordinary voyage as we show you the beauty of the Virgin Islands.
