Santi - June 8, 1985 (35) - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Santi grew up in San Isidro (Buenos Aires), where he lived with his parents and seven brothers until he was 19 years old. All men! With a large family, there was always much organization.

At the age of 20, he traveled to New Zealand to work and for the travel experience. Then he went to live in Spain for one year, working in a hostel reservation center for Europe.

From a very young age (5 years old), he started sailing an Optimist, and then as a cadet until 17 years old. He plays different sports, but his hobby is making electric LEGO trains.

His family always had a boat (sailboat and (powerboat) cruise ship), so he was always in contact with the water, his great passion.

Santi went to “Marín School”. Moreover, he is self-taught in all matters of technology and processes. He has dedicated many years to these tasks.

His friends define him as an introverted, executive, and fun person.

´Only one thing makes a dream impossible: The fear of failure.´


Luli - January 5, 1992 (28) - Buenos Aires, Argentina

For her first 28 years, Luli lived with her parents and three sisters in San Isidro, a very beautiful, quiet city with green spaces and a coastal area.

As a child, she went to the club almost every weekend and played with her friends. That is where her love for boats began. The club is near the river, and she could see everyone hoisting their sails.

Many friends had boats so many times we went sailing. In 2017 she bought her first boat with Santiago that they enjoyed every weekend and on day-offs.

Luli studied at “La Unidad School”, graduating as a Passenger Cabin Crew. For eight years, she worked in a travel agency arranging itineraries and sales of tourist services.

Her hobby is making crafts such as knitting in two rows or the macramé technique. Moreover, her favorite sport is riding a bike.

Luli´s friends define her as fun, Natural, and very perfectionist.


´Kiss slowly, Speak clearly, Fail a little, Dance a lot, Love hard and Laugh really.´

Luli and Santi
Thank you for the incredible moment you made us live. Excellent places and hospitality. A perpetual memory for all of us, it was a great selection that our trip of 40 be in Nemo. Love from ´the good eating band´

Late February guests aboard NEMO in the Leeward Islands wrote:

So sorry for the long delay in our feedback. We both dropped straight back into work life, and haven´t come up for air much in recent weeks!

Our trip was simply amazing! Santiago and Lucia were amazing hosts; polite, accommodating, helpful. They were very knowledgeable about their vessel, the area, and everything we could possibly have wanted to know or do. They let us be together, alone, as a family for the most part, but also were sure to check in with us whenever they thought we may need something. Lucia especially always seemed to anticipate our schedule, with food materializing at just the right time when we were waking up, or when people were getting hungry for lunch or pre-dinner snacks. In short, they were terrific!

The food and drink were great. They were always well stocked with plenty of food or drink options, and we were never left wanting for anything! Lucia´s cooking was great. She made simple, healthy, tasty dishes that we all loved. Every time we sat down for a meal, we were excited to see what she would deliver. Also, she did a great job of accommodating our vegetarian daughter, which I know always adds an extra wrinkle for the chef. The food was well prepared, fresh, tasty, and always available! Dinner was a special time for us each night. Lucia would start with a small appetizer, and we would gather to talk, share our feelings on the day, and play games as a family. Santi and Luli would be checking in, keeping drinks in front of us, setting a cozy scene on the back of the boat where we would watch the sun drop below the horizon, and welcome the evening as a family with games and a wonderful meal. I think dinnertime was our favorite part of each day.

Oh, and the beds were shockingly comfortable! I´m sure the gentle rocking of the boat, which was very stable, by the way, helped us all sleep soundly through the night, but we all remarked on how much we liked the mattresses!

Santi always involved us in putting together the plan for the day or days ahead. We would discuss what he had in mind, and occasionally made slight adjustments so we could anchor in a calmer harbor, or spend more time in a particularly beautiful spot. They knew the islands very well, and we trusted their input as to where we should go to see what we wanted to see, and do what we wanted to do.

Our favorite parts of the trip were the times we spent anchored off of Pinel Island (St. Maarten) and Ile Fourshue (St. Barth´s). Both spots were gorgeous and calm, lots of snorkeling, and both with islands we could paddle to so we could hike and explore. They were just breathtaking places in the world, and both were so uncrowded that we felt like we had it all to ourselves. In fact, the day we spent at Fourshue was almost entirely alone, and when we hiked the island there was no one else there with us. It was a beautiful place to be, and that much the better to be on our own private boat! We especially loved the water, snorkeling at every anchorage, sea turtles and rays everywhere! Gustavia was a great little town to visit to come ashore for an afternoon, and both islands were just gorgeous, but we really loved the privacy and solitude of being on the Nemo as a family.

Honestly, we don´t have a lot of critical feedback about the experience. We were sad to leave the boat; loved the beds, the cabins, the food, and the beautiful locales that Sanit and Luli shared with us. We have never been so relaxed following a vacation, and are already making plans to get back on the Nemo as soon as we can make it happen!

Thank you so much for helping us to make this experience happen. It was a memory our family will hold onto forever!

Thank you so much for the much needed relaxation and vacation. From the sun, sailing, cocktails and food, everything was wonderful.

Thank you for the wonderful week in the Caribbean Sea. We didn´t know what to expect for the week, but it was one of our family´s greatest and most memorable experiences. Our children had a fantastic time learning about sailing, the islands, life on a catamaran. You were wonderful with them and they will always remember you.
All of the meals are really good.
I loved to drive the boat.
It was great to experience all of the beaches with you and will cherish this time together getting to know you. If you are ever near Chicago, reach out.

We just had an amazing sailing vacation with Santiago and Luli on the catamaran Nemo. We went a day early to stay at Grand Case in St Martin. We did not want to be late for our trip. The next day, we met Santiago at the Marina to begin our adventure. We went to Anse Marcel for lunch and then sailed to St Barts before Tropical storm, Elsa arrived with Santiago confidently at the helm. The weather cleared swiftly. Santiago surprised us with a car rental for the day in St Barts. We explored the beautiful island and stopped for lunch at a quiet hotel on the beach. The views were spectacular! We anchored at the most amazing places!

They were quiet with lots of things to do. You could hike to a lookout, snorkel, float, paddleboard, or kayak. We felt like we were in paradise. We anchored at Colombier at St. Bart´s and Ile Fourchue. When Santiago got out all the water toys, our boat looked like the best place to be in the anchorage. We would try out each one and go back around again. We also anchored at Ile Tintamarre, in St. Martin as well as Pinel Island. This is a lovely small island that we hiked on, roamed around, and stayed for drinks at the restaurant that was open all before people arrived. It was lovely. You can only get there by boat. The ferries were not running that day, so it was not as crowded as usual.

We kayaked into Friar’s Bay beach; a lovely spot to swim or snorkel. Each place was more lovely than the last. The food was amazing; we loved Luli’s cooking but make sure you save room for her desserts. Every day when we returned to our room, everything was cleaned, and we were greeted with inspirational quotes left on our bed. Santi and Luli were exceptional as our captain and cook. Santi took some amazing drone footage to remember our trip.

Everything was just perfect! It is a trip we will treasure forever!
hank you to our new friends, Santi & Luli

Guys, we´ve had a perfect few days in your company. We enjoyed tasty meals, talks under the moon, some of us also learned to appreciate sailing and enjoy the wind, in short, a repeatable and recommendable experiment. On the other hand, your warmth made us feel that we were among friends and it was all much easier. Thank you very much for everything and we wish you the best.

It was such a pleasure to spend the end of 2020 and the New Year´s celebration of 2021. We shared the seas and the moon and delightful meals on your wonderful boat with your delightful company.
