About Mark Phillips

Restless Native is a family owned company with one boat in our 'Fleet'. Our boat 'Aria' was our home for over a year in Europe and the Caribbean. After a bout with cancer, I decided that I wanted to spend some very good quality time with my family without the normal day to day distractions.

In June 2007 we went to live on Aria. After six weeks of outfitting our boat in the beautiful French Port of La Rochelle on the Atlantic Ocean we departed for Spain. We sailed to Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and into the Mediterranean.

Since the weather was bad and getting worse, we had a crew sail Aria from Barcelona, Spain to the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.

We sailed the Caribbean for several months until we returned home to Hawaii.

We now live in the wonderful Florida Keys where we are able to enjoy sailing Aria whenever we want to.

Mark Phillips purchased this yacht in 2007

Why Mark Phillips chose Key West

Key West is a wonderful and vibrant city with terrific restaurants, hotels, friendly people, great diving, snorkeling and of course, sailing.

Our location in the Historic City Marina in 'Old Town' is ideal. It is the most protected berth in the harbor and we are close to everything that Key West offers. During the day, the seaport is a bustling harbor but at night it is extremely quiet and serene.

We want to share our love for the water with new friends and this is the ideal way.

What makes this yacht unique

Living on a luxury yacht in a Historic Seaport is a unique experience. You have all of the amenities you expect from luxury accommodations and yet you become part of the community, unlike staying in a hotel.

Have you ever dreamt of sailing on a yacht? Aria is 42 feet long and 25 feet wide and is very spacious and stable. Living in a marina is a unique experience and is not for everyone, but for those who love the boating lifestyle and the water this is the perfect way to experience living aboard!

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Aria was an incredible place to stay. The boat is impeccable, well laid out and very roomy. We enjoyed every moment of our stay including the sail and snorkeling. Capt. Mark was very nice and extremely accommodating. The location is perfect. We parked the car and didn't move it till time to leave.

Best Location - Pristine Boat - Amazing Experience -Great Crew!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first trip to Key West, and I was not disappointed! My three teenage sons came along, and they loved Key West too. Renting the Aria for our 5-night stay was the single best decision we made. I would recommend the Aria without reservation.

The listing and reviews are accurate - Key West Bight Marina IS the best location in Key West! This private setting with 24/7 security (we saw the guard on patrol at all times of day/evening) is so quiet by nightfall that the only thing you hear is the sound of the waves lapping on the boat. While not listed officially as an amenity, the gentle rocking of the boat when docked was a treat in itself.

If you think Key West is an adults-only destination, think again! There was plenty to do for all of us, as we enjoy getting out on the water. The daytime and sunset sails were a highlight of the trip - and included with the 5-night rental. (Definitely the way to go.) Just being on the boat at sunrise, for a peaceful breakfast, and for a quiet dinner in the evening was a nice change of pace. Unlike a condo or hotel, our accommodations on the Aria became part of the experience, creating memories of even the simplest things.

The listing photos are accurate, but they hardly do the Aria justice! You really need to see in person to appreciate how spacious (okay, the bedrooms are tight, but this IS a boat) and well-kept the boat is, as other reviewers note. When we arrived, the Aria was spotless - gleaming in the sun. It was clear the crew took great pride in preparing the boat for our arrival. During our stay, the captain was never more than a call or text away - literally! Everything was in good working order, so we did not encounter any issues, but whenever we had a question, the captain was at the boat within minutes to answer.

Prior to the trip, I had several email exchanges with the owner and the captain regarding questions about the Aria specifically and general inquiries about the area. Both went out of their way to provide information that helped me plan a memorable and enjoyable holiday. This was one of our favorite vacations, owing in great part to our decision to stay in the Key West Bight Marina onboard the Aria. Thanks to the crew for a wonderful time!

A Recommended Alternative

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed in hotels and houses on past trips to Key West, I found an alternative accommodation that I recommend for enhancing the overall experience. We made the 42-ft catamaran Aria, berthed in Key West Bight, our home for three days. Steps away from the myriad water activities based out of this seaport and only a few blocks to the Duval action made this the ideal place to be. And, we enjoyed the quiet of the docks by night.

Mark, with whom we talked on the phone to secure the reservation, was very polite and professional. He encouraged us to call with any questions prior to our arrival. At the dock, we met the other Mark, boat captain and dive master, who is the face of Restless Native. He, too, was professional, and he was also very accommodating and available to help. We had to call him at 1:30 in the morning with a small issue that he immediately help resolve. One day we left the boat before sunset and didn’t make it back until late. Mark lives close by and saw that the boat was dark, so he dropped by and turned on the lights. We felt very secure with the location.

From the Aria, we could take a picturesque street route to Duval or Mallory Square or we could meander along the scenic Harbor Walk to the same locations. The activities were in such close proximity to the boat, we made the trip several times a day with enjoyable breaks aboard the Aria in between. If you like boats, Key West Bight is definitely the location to be. Dinghies, diving and fishing charters, schooners and private motor yachts are but a few that are docked there. There are also multiple restaurants, a couple of coffee shops and a small market within steps of the boat.

Aria has three staterooms of varying sizes each with a private shower and marine head. Roomy salon seating adjoins a galley with two half-size refrigerators, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and small range. Cabinets and drawers contain dishes, glasses and flatware if you are inclined to prepare food. Under a fixed canopy at the stern is additional seating around a full table. Cushions at the bow are a great place to relax under the sun or to view the stars. The interior spaces are air conditioned and well lit. The exterior spaces are open on a 25-ft beam allowing easy passage along the deck.

Staying aboard Restless Native’s Aria should be given serious consideration on your next trip to Key West.

Loved the boat, loved Key West, and LOVED the captain & staff!

The captain, Mark, was a delight--he knows all about Key West, restaurants, sailing & boats. We so enjoyed the trips he took us on in "our" boat. His first mates were great too (loved Leah!). The marine toilets weren't a problem, I think they've updated the system since the earlier complaints. The AC worked well for later in the day, but having the windows open was wonderful at night & in the morning. Beds were comfortable, plenty of linens. Met interesting people doing laundry on the marina. :) Master Bath just fine (our kids showered there too), others are small, but hey, it is a boat! We loved being able to walk to so many good/great restaurants, a good dive shop, liquor store, Cajun Coffee Queen and the ferry within 5 minutes--and Duval Street was an easy walk too. Be sure to do the Fort Jefferson day trip--it was a real highlight. If you want to read at night I'd bring a book light. And for a computer signal you go to a local coffee shop or close-by bar. It was fun coming home to our little dock village and the Aria!

Christmas Fun

  • 5 of 5
Bottom Line Up Front: We will choose Restless Native Charters and Capt. Mark for our next on the water excursion. I would recommend this to anyone with a family, friends looking to get away, or couples looking for a romantic Key West experience.

Our family has been to Key West numerous times over the last 10 years and this was by far the best experience. We stayed on the "Aria" for 7 days over the Christmas holiday. The location is hands down the best bang for your buck. Located in Key West Bight, you are right next to Dante's Pool Bar for the hot days, and within a short walk of countless bars for great happy hours and excellent food.

The layout of the boat provides plenty of space for 6 people to relax and enjoy the Key West waterfront. My wife gets seasick very easily and she did not experience any issues during this trip. The boat is steady when at the dock and its some of the best sleep I have had in months.

Capt. Mark is a cut above. He lives close by and is available day or night for any issues that may come up. He has years of experience on the water and ensured that our day sail and sunset cruise were very enjoyable. He goes the extra mile to make sure that all passengers are safe and feel comfortable during their cruise experience. Both of the deckhands (Rosey, Mel) were very helpful and added to the sailing experience.

Thanks again for a great vacation and we look forward to seeing Key West soonm

Party of six from cold cold Iowa

I can honestly say that I did not know what to expect............I loved It. I really liked the marina and the atmosphere of the people. I loved the boat. It had generous space and was quite comfy! The Captain was great and so was his lovely first Mate! The sunset cruise was fun and we had beautiful weather. The Captain and First Mate entertained us with their knowledge of the area and the experiences! All six of us absolutely would recommend this vacation rental! You will not be disappointed......they took great care of us! We will do this again!
