Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for MARCATO
Captain: Jason Halvorsen
Captain: Jason Halvorsen

Captain Jason’s passion for travel began at a very young age. Before he started kindergarten Jason had visited over 30 of the US

states with his parents. The family settled in Fort Lauderdale when he turned 5 which is where another passion began, one for

the ocean within the maritime community. Through Jason’s high school education he attended Marine Tech School studies and

managed to complete a Marine Mechanics Degree whilst juggling his regular studies. Jason was working on yachts by 16, and

earned his first Captains license at 19. Jason started his career on commercial charter and sight seeing boats, and by 21 was the 1st

Mate/ 2nd Captain of a 500 passenger commercial boat in New York City. During his young and busy career Jason owned a yacht

management company, has been captain on private and charter yachts, commercially towed, and has also been a salvage master

(where he narrowly avoided the local alligators while spending 45 days as master salvage diver in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina!).

In his time off the water, Jason enjoys traveling with his wife and young daughter, and continues traveling throughout the US and

Europe as often as his busy schedule allows. At home in the US, Jason enjoys customizing and restoring old cars and motor cycles

(he has built 2 custom Harleys and restored a 1976 Ford F100) but his biggest passion of all is food: cooking it, eating it and traveling

to restaurants to eat and learn new techniques. After a resent Shark Tagging Expedition onboard M/Y Marcato, Jason has taken on

a roll as Maritime Advisor for a Non-profit Marine Scientific Organization.

Jason’s diverse experiences and interests inside and out of the yachting industry makes him a friendly, versatile, and dynamic

member of the crew aboard M/Y Marcato. Captain Jason aspires to give all guests on board an exceptional experience, so please

feel free to let him know any other way we can make your vacation with us truly unforgettable or just to have a good old chat..

another of Captain Jason’s hobbies and one he’s rather good at!

confines of a ‘typical’ career path. A strong background in Hospitality, Sales and Administration combined with her restless desire to

experiences, with tailored service specific to their wants and needs. She wishes your stay on Marcato to be a happy one!


We had a great trip from Key West to Havana in June. Onboard were Newporters Karen Kelly Shea, Ann Souder, Halsey Fulton, Pearl Macek and the owners. At 141' we were a snug fit in Marina Hemingway where we showed a 17' depth all the way in. Customs and Immigration were courteous and efficient and the marina staff was welcoming, as always.  The view from the sundeck is extraordinary - 5 decks above the waterline! Onboard we received some of our business partners for meetings and this vessel was the perfect venue. The high ceilings and extra large cabins on MARCATO give it a unique feeling of spaciousness. Can't wait to join the vessel on its expeditions to the more remote areas of the Cuban coast.
