Captain Andrea grew up on the dramatically beautiful shores of Lake Como in Lombardy, Italy. His love of sailing began by racing smaller boats for fun; J24, Asso 99, and B25. His commitment strengthened when he became a sailing instructor for the Italian Federation, teaching adult classes on First 40.7 and B25 Beneteau, J24 and SunFast 35 Jeanneau. He went on to launch his own sailing association, and realized he much preferred this second job to his land-based career. In 2009, he purchased NEMO and set sail. He chartered throughout Greece and the Caribbean, his favorite destinations.

Since 2009, Andrea has achieved numerous yachting licenses and certificates. However, he is most proud of his innovations to NEMO that have won several “Going Green to Save the Blue” project awards. This crusade encourages the yachting industry to implement green initiatives. He explains, “I have engineering skills and a strong interest in environmentally friendly projects. NEMO was conceived and designed to be eco-friendly and self-sufficient. Nowadays, any design brief of mine for future upgrades is always driven by the goal to protect nature, marine life and the environment.”

When Captain Andrea has time, he likes to cook and prepare his own liquors, especially Limoncello, that of course is sampled during every charter. It’s one of the many ways he likes to teach people the best of Italian traditions, and one of the many reasons guests become fast friends, almost immediately. He says, “My Italian blood means a very warm, open and welcoming character. I enjoy sharing the sailing experience with my guests, getting to know them and often building strong and long-lasting friendships. They feel like part of my family, I love to share my passion for the sea, nature, food, wine, sailing stories and more. I think that is the secret key to NEMO’s successful charter history.”


Roma is driven by two great passions, friendships and cooking, which is the perfect paring for a top charter yacht chef. She cares for guests as she would her best friends. When it comes to menu planning, every day is a scrumptious holiday, even for those with dietary restrictions.

Roma has worked on charter yachts all over the world and picked up wonderful recipes and techniques during her travels. She prepares a wide range of dishes to suit guest preferences; from comfort food to new and exciting dishes that guests will enjoy. Her formal training at Seasons Cookery School provided the basics, but her creativity has long since taken over the menu.

A talented and experienced business woman, Roma has been the Owner of several successful restaurants. But being a yacht chef is what makes her the happiest. When she not in the galley preparing something amazing, or lending a hand on deck, she loves to be making a splash, above and below the waterline.

I heard only a quick note from the client; that they had a great time and they were heading out to extend their charter.

25 March - 1 April, 2018

All good, lovely captain and crew.

Happy 2018 from NEMO!

NEMO in the BVIs for New Years!

20- 27 December, 2017, Christmas in the Virgins Islands!

We really enjoyed our week with you both on our Island Christmas! It was so much fun and very relaxing and you both made it extra special. Thank you for sharing stories of your adventures and all the places you’ve visited with us! You have so much sailing knowledge and are great about teaching. Chiara was so sweet and we enjoyed her stories as well as her delicious cooking. We miss you and the islands already.

June 6-12 ‘17

Thank you for showing us the BVI the best way possible! We will never forget this trip! We cannot believe how fast the time went and can’t wait to come back and dance the night away again! Thank you both again!
Ali and Ryan

Thank you for showing us the best of the BVI! This has been a vacation of a lifetime for us! I can only hope we get to return and experience this again! You are both amazing at your crafts (sailing, cooking, dancing, islanding). You are the best.
Kim and Abby

Thank you for all the BVI wisdom, the endless memories, the amazing meals and all of the fun times! Best trip of our lives!!! We will miss you and need to start planning round two! You rule!
Meg and Trevor

Thank you for being the best hosts to my family. Everything was perfect. Words cannot express our appreciation for helping to make this memory for my family.

Thank you for being gracious hosts and showing us all the beauty in the BVI. I have done many crazy things but being pulled by the rope, was at the top!! To our Ninja: I don´t know how you do it but you managed to surprise us with awesome dishes, drinks, desserts and clean rooms daily. The birthday cake was amazing! Captain A: thank you for being patient with me and helping me get over my snorkel fear! You are right, the ocean is too beautiful not to see! Thank you for allowing my son to continue flipping until he got it right! All of us enjoyed every spot you took us to, and they just kept getting better and better. Think of us when you watch ´Step brothers´ and when you play ´Left right center´. Until we meet again may God watch over you and keep you safe in all your travels. We will return! Thank you again.
Joan and Mike

Great Fun on NEMO!

Having a blast at the baths!

Comments from Guests, Spring 2017

About a year ago we were sitting on our patio sharing memories of our first trip on Nemo, almost exactly 4 year ago. We knew we had to come back and bring some new friends with us! We have enjoyed revisiting some old favourites and experiencing some new! Peter Island and the sunset loop were awe inspiring. Valentina always makes the most amazing meals and Andrea shares the best stories. We enjoyed every moment onboard Nemo. And the iced coffee off the boat at Big Bamboo!! Thanks again for another amazing experience.
Alyssa and Andy

Andrea and Valentina, thank you so much for another amazing experience. The food, the sailing and the snorkelling were all wonderful. We wish you the best in all your sailing and life adventures. Hopefully our paths will cross again.

We have heard about this trip for four years! We´ve heard how incredible you two are and what a special adventure this was. Everything we heard was true and even better than we could have imagined. We cannot thank you enough for sharing your boat, your time and yummy meals with us! Here´s to hopefully seeing you again before 4 years.
All our friendship
Sherri and Jeff

Andrea and Valentina, what an amazing trip! The islands are beautiful, but the trip was made for me through your presence on the boat! The games, great conversations, stories, jokes, food and time spent together were all so fun with you two! This was one of the best weeks of my life, thank you :) I hope we see each other again soon.

Turned 66 on the boat today! The last night of a phenomenal week´s trip in the BVI. Thank you Andrea and Valentina for going beyond our expectations. You truly have a gift of catering to our needs and desires.
Scott and Nora

This was definetly a 10! Valentina and Andrea were the best ever from sailing experience to fantastic food to enjoyable company, this was the best experience ever!
Betsy and Pete

This trip was so much better than expected! I didn´t get seasick! Thank you both for all your work, you sure took great care of us. Thank you also for making Scott´s birthdaay so special. It was a memorable trip.

Blessed by the winds of friendship and adventure we´ve spent this memorable week with Valentina and Andrea. The food-flavours of Italy- was memorable and we waited with anticipation for the next wonderful meal. Turtles, eagle rays, turquoise water leave us with many stories (most of them true) of our adventures of the BVI. Thank you, thank you so much.
Mark and Jeannine

Thank you for a most wonderful week aboard Nemo. We expected this to be a good trip but all expectations were exceeded. The trip was fantastic! Your willingness to share your knowledge of the sea and sailing and your embrace of us into the Nemo family made us feel like old friends. This is a trip we won´t ever forget.
Alden and Jan

Andrea and Valentina wow! What an amazing cruise! Thank you for showing us a sample of the best of the BVI. It was a new experience for us and created lifetime memories. Thank you for all you did for us.
Judy and Bob

“ Thank you for taking such good care of us all week! I haven´t been to a better dancing club than Nemo! The snorkelling and views were amazing! We´ll hopefully see you both again..maybe on a cruise through Panama canal! We wish you smooth sailing.
Steve and Kitty

Valentina and Andrea, you have given us so much!Our fearless leaders, you showed us a whole new side of the BVI. From snorkelling at Waterlemon cay to Soggy Dollar, Peter Island (we´ll have to save the sunset walk for next time :)) to Bitter End and Anegada- every day was a new adventure. With all our thanks and affection,
Enid and Jim

3-6 March, 2017 ~ Outstanding!!

I just want to thank you for once again making my clients dreams come true and for doing an outstanding job! I never have to worry when I place guests onboard NEMO as the results and comments are always the same.

The crew are fabulous. They are outstanding! Warm, flexible, and easy going. Obviously very skilled and knowledgeable. A great crew for sure. The trip was outstanding. For the short trip, avoiding customs was the right thing. We were not held back at all, and we had amazing snorkeling. We will be back for sure.

Many thanks to you and them!


14-21 Jan, 2017 ~ 5 Star Week!

Andrea was knowledgeable, personal, funny, accommodating and hands down awesome.

Valentina was amazing. My belly was so happy. She was also knowledgeable, personal, talented and had amazing boat skills. We all enjoyed their company. The itinerary, comfort of the yacht, sports and leisure activities, food, drinks and entire experience was 5 Stars!!

The skipper was amazing, he was clear in communicating the safety standards for the boat and set clear expectations of our trip. He was friendly and engaging. He was a pleasure to spend time with.
Valentina was an awesome first mate and chef! Our mooring and anchoring was seamless and without error. It was impressive to watch Captain and her work together. Valentina was also so creative with my husband and my diet restrictions. They are synchronized in every way on and off the land, and it is very evident that both of them are seasoned and experienced sailors. Every day was wonderful and tailored to our needs.

The boat and its amenities are wonderful, the beds are so comfortable and Valentina’s attention to detail of our cabins each day was impressive.

The itinerary was perfect and customized to our group’s interests. The activities and equipment were excellent and we did not even use all the equipment available. The crew just knew what we needed before we did and often surprised us. We really enjoyed the paddle boards and the giant inflatable, and fat boys of course.

The food and drinks were fabulous! Again, the attention to detail paring the wine and cocktails with our food was spot-on. We all enjoyed the variety of cocktails and the Captain’s creativity with the after-dinner drinks.

The entire experience was incredible. The environmental sustainability and “earth first” approach that Nemo provides its guests is top rate! As an environmental educator, it was so refreshing to see a boat so deeply connected to the preservation of the environment. 5 Stars all the way around.


I cannot say enough about Andrea and Valentina and the experience that we had on Nemo. It was truly wonderful from start to finish, and is definitely something I would repeat and have already recommended them to several friends. I thoroughly enjoyed every day of our trip and although the place is beautiful and the boat great, it is the people that made this journey truly special. 5 Star.

January 20, 2017 ~ Beautiful Memories

Comments from clients in guestbook:
Billy and I had a wonderful time sailing, snorkeling, fishing, swimming, laughing and exploring the many spectacular and special locations you shared with us. We would love to share our island. You both are an amazing team. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to every detail for our trip. Say hello to all the turtles for us! Thank you for the many memories.
With love and much peace,
Billy & Stacy

Thank you so much for a positively amazing experience! It was truly a wonderful week and your hospitality is second to none. Everything was simply perfect, no need to change a thing. What I enjoyed the most was meeting and talking to you both. Brian and I truly appreciate all that you´ve done to make this trip so very special. You have an open invitation to Long Island at any time. We will be contacting you closer to May for suggestions in Milano and Como. Thanks again for all that you do!
Love & gratitude,
Brian & Tabitha

Without you I would still be 39..Everyday my eyes, heart and soul was filled with beautiful memories NEMO was meant to be. Meals were always a delicious surprise and every stop was a feast for our eyes. Best part of everything was meeting both of you. I hate saying goodbye so I will say ´see you next time´.
Peace, love & happiness,
Libby & Dan

Feedback to broker:
The weather on the first 3 days of our trip was very challenging and Captain Andrea demonstrated his knowledge of the islands and safely navigated to locations that were protected from the wind. I was very comfortable with Andrea. Due to weather/wind conditions on the first 3 days, Captain Andrea adjusted our itinerary accordingly and we went to amazing snorkel locations and great hiking spots. Val is a great chef and excellent mate. She made amazing meals and accommodated my diet restrictions. The means were excellent. Val´s meals were creative and diverse. She was able to accommodate my diet restrictions. Capt. Andrea´s homemade ´liquid chocolate´ and Lemoncello were awesome after all of the fantastic meals. Nemo was very clean and all components were in working order. Our cabin was cleaned daily. We used the paddle boards, fishing equipment, snorkel equipment and floating toys.

I would highly recommend Nemo to friends or family and want to go back!

New Year´s Charter 2016/17

From the moment we stepped onto the Nemo it was like Andrea and Valentina welcomed us into their home, for real! Andrea was the most competent captain and we felt so safe under his watch!
Valentina is the best chef ever! Lobster dinner and b-day cake..and all the rest, too nice to write about it all! From 40th b-day to the best New Years Eve we made friends for life. Dancing in the sand at Anegada ( the flat island) and drinking captain´s painkillers to the cowboy captain and Valentina taking care of Eddie and getting him headless lobster was the best!!! Captain´s tip to sleep under the fat boys in the rain was awesome and we slept like tacos under the mats.

We´ll never forget Cards Against Humanity and the altar boy!

Best trip ever!

November 19-25, 2016 ~BVI~ Feedback to Broker

Marti and I had a wonderful time. Andrea and Valentina were very knowledgeable and showed us parts of the BVI we had not seen before. They really know the great snorkeling spots and the fun commercial ports. The meals were excellent and Valentina did a fine job surprising Marti with special dishes that met her dietary restrictions. Andrea had a lot of fun showing off his new floating cabana and we had a ball trying to get on it. I personally enjoyed the sailing. That was really a lot of fun.
Dennis and Marti

We echo the Dennis & Marti´s comments about Nemo. The added wonder was how Valentina was able to prepare those fabulous meals for all of us in that tiny kitchen. We also enjoyed learning a little more about their way of life in Italy which was very educational. This is one hard working couple who aim to please.
Tom & Nancy

Ditto, Ditto, Ditto...
Sorry for a delayed response. We too had a great time. We especially enjoyed Valentina´s cooking and Andrea´s willingness to share his knowledge and skill.
They are a delightful couple, and it is their personal touch that made the trip memorable.
Gary & Linda

November 19-25, 2016 ~BVI~ Outstanding!! Guest Book Comments

This sort of trip/cruise is a first time for us, so we did not know what to expect. Now we know. We have been very well, and we have been given many excellent opportunities to explore, both on land and sea. Beyond that, excellent food and company was provided by our crew, outstanding and will be remembered!

The BVI like we have never seen it before. Beaches we have never been to before are so much better from the Nemo. Andrea and Valentina were so good about sharing stories and information about previous sailing. Good for finding turtles and rays. Thanks for all the memories and great food, drinks and companionship. Happy Thanksgiving!

July 3 - 10, 2016 ~ Loved Every Minute!

What a wonderful way to spend a family vacation. Everyone together and a different place every day. We loved every minute. Thank you Andrea and Valentina for the hospitality. We will definitely miss the beautiful views and Valentina´s wonderful cooking of gourmet Italian meals. Andrea´s conch shell alarm is a great way to wake up ;) Cheerz

June 25 - July 2, 2016 - USVI ~ Absolutely Amazing!

We returned from our catamaran vacation last night. While it was still fresh in my mind, I wanted to pass on that we had an absolutely amazing vacation.

Andrea and Valentina were the BEST crew a family could ever ask for. I would recommend the Nemo to anyone and everyone.

Thank you again!

Tyler, Ellen and Alexis

June 4, 2016 – Awesome Experience!!

Hi Andreas & Valentina,
Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation aboard Nemo. We really enjoyed sailing the BVI and USVI with you. It was an awesome experience!! Thanks for putting up with us this week.
Please keep in touch. We would love to go sailing again. Matthew and I might even like to join you on a repositioning or transatlantic crossing.
It has been great getting to know you this week.

April 17-23, 2016 BVI Great Boat and Crew

Guest Book Comments:
This was our first sailing trip and both Gregg and I are very happy we did the cruise on the Nemo with Andrea and Valentina. Their level of sailing experience and expertise puts you at ease immediately. Once I learned about their years of experience sailing the BVI´s as well as Greece and crossing the oceans between the two ´hubs´ for four straight years - any concerns I had about our safety and their ability to navigate through any climate or condition vanished! Valentina is an excellent chef and every meal was truly amazing - Andrea is a wicked bartender as well and every action taken by either of them was truly in service to one of us or the overall mission of the trip which was to sail the BVI´s safely and have a blast! Plus, their knowledge of marine life, the nooks and crannies of that landscape, where to find the best spots for snorkeling, swimming, partying, sun setting - you name it - they knew it and could get us there with ease and grace! Honestly, it was like have a crew and a guide, and a personal chef and, and, and...I could just go on about how wonderful they are - so, in keeping with all that - of course, the boat was impeccable, immaculate and perfectly cared for - very lovely in every way.

Anyone who has a passion for sailing, snorkeling, or traveling the BVI´s by charter boat is particularly fortunate if the Nemo is available for charter!

I second everything Ginney wrote. I couldn´t have said it better myself! Great boat and crew.

Feedback to Broker:
Ken and I have had a fantastic adventure with you two and Nemo. The food was so good, the cocktails, so strong & tasty. The card game, so horrible and wonderful! If we do this again, we will only go with you two and Nemo. Thank you so much for a wonderful week!

WOW! Andrea and Valentina!
What a wonderful trip and holiday of a lifetime. Thank you for the wonderful sailing and adventure and Cards against Humanity! Your meals were amazing Valentina! Thank you for the weight gain, even with all the snorkeling. Best of seas for you and many blessings

Andrea and Valentina, this was my first sailing cruise and I can´t imagine doing this with anyone but you and Nemo! you were great and such an experienced crew- knowledgeable on so many issues and ways of the sailing world. Hope to meet up with you again!
p.s. Best food ever!

April 9-16 2016, Best Vacation Ever

Andrea and Valentina, we cannot thank you enough! What a magical week-it truly could not have been any better. We all LOVE Nemo! What a beautiful and comfortable boat. The food and drinks were amazing! Thank you for sharing so many incredible spots with us- the scenery, fish, turtles, etc. etc.

Best vacation ever- can´t wait to hopefully come back some time soon. Thank you!

BVI 29 March to 4th April - Absolutely Amazing

Hello Valentina and Andrea:
I am not sure what our expectations were when we booked our 2016 Spring Break vacation on Nemo, but any we could have had, were surely exceeded! From the moment we got aboard Nemo, until the last dingy ride back to Red Hook, it was absolutely amazing. The itinerary you set up, the food you prepared, the beautiful catamaran you shared with us, and all the special ´phone calls´ Valentina placed for good weather were all are just spectacular. Not only did we enjoy having a great time with friends and family, we loved sharing the time with you both as well. What a delightful couple you are!

BVI 29 March to 4th April

A very fun week aboard Nemo!

Christmas Charter 2015

Q. What was your first impression of the yacht? A. Lovely, clean and inviting
Q. Was advertised equipment onboard and in good condition? A. Yes, excellent
Q. Did the skipper/hostess make you feel welcome and comfortable onboard? A. More than we could have ever hoped for or expected.
Q. Did you feel free to choose activities? A. Andrea and Valentina were happy to allow us to choose, as well as change our minds at any time during the trip. There was never any hesitation if we chose to skip something or add something on. In fact, the first thing they said to us was that we didn´t have to feel obligated to any plans, and that they were more than happy to accommodate us.
Q. Please provide specific comments regarding your skipper and hostess. A. Both Andrea and Valentina were truly fantastic. Both possessed not only the knowledge and understanding of how to navigate the boat and the waters, but were sincerely passionate about it. Valentina exceeded our expectations with her cooking! So much so, that we never chose to have a meal off of the boat. That includes 3 finicky teenage children. Andrea and Valentina also taught my children some aspects of sailing a boat and tying nautical knots. They both attended to our every need, and encouraged us to relax and enjoy every moment any way we chose to. We had great conversations and enjoyed board games nightly, after a fantastic meal. My husband was so impressed, that he
never asked what was on the menu for the day, simply because he knew it would be delicious. It was truly a sad moment when we departed from Nemo and said good bye to two genuinely wonderful people.
Q. Were the meals and beverages as you expected? A. Yes.... fantastic!
Q. If you made any special requests were they met? A. Yes
Q. Would you recommend this yacht for a charter vacation? A. Yes, and already have. We will continue to tell people what a wonderful experience we had on Nemo.

Nov 14-21 2015

Andrea and Valentina, we have waited a long time for this special vacation and every day was better than the day before! It exceeded all of our expectations and we have loved every minute!

Cheers to the two of you for making this a vacation we will never forget!

We can´t thank you enough for providing such a wonderful experience for our family. We made lifelong memories this week and for that I am so grateful.
You are gracious and knowledgeable and fun hosts and we hope to sail with you again someday soon! Thank you
Mary Anne and Peter

Nemo was an amazing unforgettable trip. I will never forget the crew, the food and the amazing snorkelling. We had dance parties and very competitive games. We saw eaglerays, stingrays, trunkfishes and most important, turtles. I touched turtles for the first time and loved it. I hope we can do this trip again. Thanks so much for this experience!

Nemo was incredible, from relaxing and taking naps on the Fatboys to going on snorkelling adventures chasing turtles through the clearest, bluest waters.
The food was so delicious I looked forward to every meal and especially the surprise dessert! Best vacation ever! I love Nemo!
Thank you for making the experience so amazing, thanks

8-15 March BVI 2015

So glad we found Nemo! what a beautiful week we had. Your warmth and hospitality made our week in paradise all that more special. This was the perfect 25 th wedding anniversary. Looking forward to future adventures... The food was super, the sailing was smooth and the adventures perfect! After seven other charters this rank at the top! David and Lauren

We loved Nemo! The crew and the food as well as the warm personalities. We are very happy to have found new friends.

10-17 January 2015 St Maarten

WE had a blast with Andrea and Valentina, You could tell they owned the cat rather than just worked it. Our cat was spotless, the food was great, our wine provisioning was fine. This trip was perfect for 6 old friends. As Captain, Andrea was focused and very mindfull of our safety at all times. Valentina took care of everything else. We are all in agreement, that we would definitely do this again down the road in the B.V.I.1.
1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
Very very big yes
2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
3. Was the yacht well ventilated?
oooh Yeahh
4. Was the food good and well presented?
the food was perfect
5. Did you like the area you sailed?
sure did

Dec. 4 BVI Charter

Really enjoyed our charter with Andrea and Valentina, and are already hoping to plan another with them before the end of 2015! Great food, great people, and impressively competent and confidence-inspiring sailors. The trip was great, Valentina and Andrea were the perfect crew for us!! So glad we went with them everyone had an absolute blast and loved the crew. By the end of the trip it felt like we were sailing with friends, and Valentina and Andrea went out of their way to accommodate us.

It was clear that the crew take very good care of their boat, and the galley and heads were spotless. Floors, walls, everything else were in great condition I found myself wondering how they kept their boat in such good condition. The fatboys on the trampolines were a nice touch, as were the custom-made cushions on either side of the aft deck.

I had requested air conditioning, but all we did was use it to cool down the rooms for the first night, then we all enjoyed sleeping with the hatches and portholes open, even if that meant an early alarm clock in the form of a quick rain.

Valentina is a great chef, there wasnt a single meal that didnt win praise from all of us guests. Andreas homemade oils and aperitifs were a nice touch, and he also happens to be a talented mixologist which doesnt hurt :) Meals were always timely it seemed whenever we woke up the table was made and breakfast was ready, and upon returning from afternoons/evenings on shore we were greeted with dinner.

Andrea and Valentina created a perfect top 10 of the US/BVI, some of which I had seen before, some of which I hadnt. The BVI first-timers on board were amazed with every morning/anchorage and land activity.

23-30 July ST Maarten - Honeymoon charter

Regarding feedback on the charter... To be quite frank, we really would not change a thing. The 8-day itinerary was perfect and Valentina and Andrea were gracious hosts and great company. We laughed so much. Valentina is an incredible cook and the food aboard Nemo was absolutely delicious. Andrea makes a hell of a Pain Killer cocktail with the required Pusser´s rum. ;) We did not want for anything food, drink, or comfort wise. Thank you again!

May 9-16 BVI\´s

Without a doubt, this has been the most exciting experience of my life. The sights, sounds, sea, sailing around the BVI has been incredible.

Many to mention but you two will be a part of all those very special memories with my very special friends. AnnaLeigh

Thank you for the delicious meals! They are raving about your cooking! Andreas! Our family really respects you, likes you, and appreciates your hard work as a Captain.

My first sailing experience! You set the bar high! From the cooking tips to the snorkeling tips, everything was amazing! I cannot imagine this trip and not being aboard Nemo. I would love to visit you both in Como in August when I am in Switzerland! Thank you for everything, I would love to do this again!

New Year BVI 2013/4

´This type of vacation has been a dream of mine for years. Through the help of our neighbour we were lucky enough to find you both. He said you were the best...but you are so much more. Since we first set sail, this has been amazing. Every day..every meal..every snorkel. You two have done so much to make this trip the best. We will remember you always..and the Nemo! We will be back..maybe to Italy this time! Thank you so much for everything. Please let´s keep in touch´ Deb

´The only thing I could find wrong with this trip was my Italian! Wonderful food, humour, weather, + fishing (2 mahi on the same line!!). Great farkle dice games, although Andrea would not share his home-made aperitif recipes! The level of experience and attention to detail Valentina and Andrea showed us was truly unsurpassed on any trip we have been on. I will recommend this charter to anyone I can. Best of luck to you both on your future charters. Sail up to HiltonHead, SC!´ Richard

If you are looking for a week (or more) on a sailboat / catamaran and you look for
- clean and full functioning boat
- excellent cuisine all day around on board (best Italian food, and not only)
- extreme courtesy by skipper and hostess
- extreme knowledge of tourist attraction to make your vacation exciting
- competitive price

Look no further, Nemo is the choice

Grenadines to Antigua Feb 2013

Such a great time our group of friends had sailing the Windward and Leeward Islands in February. We started in Union and ended up 10 days later in Antigua. The Catamaran Nemo was well equipped and well staffed. The couple that sailed the vessel, did the outstanding Northern Italian cooking and acted as our groups guide could not have been more accommodating. Everything was just like clock work. When plans were made the breakfast was served and on time as promised. The weather was unpredictable but seasonal for the time of year. There were no complaints from anyone in our group. The staterooms were well equipped and each of the bathrooms had all of the necessities for a great rest and preparations for the day. I would highly recommend this trip to any group of friends are couples.

February St Maarten 2013

We can not say enough good things about our experience on NEMO. Annually we do an adult family trip and this years is still the talk of the family. We sailed St Martin, Anguilla, St Bart´s over a period of 6 days. There was plenty of space for 8 adults, adequate privacy when needed and just enough adventure. We planned our own trip with the help of Valentina and Andrea. Sails were an average of 2 - 3 hours, food gourmet - we had vegan, vegetarian, diabetic, shellfish allergy among the group and Valentina was able to accommodate with a flair all the dietary needs. Talk among the family is we will do a trip in the future in the Greek Isles with Valentina and Andrea.

Honeymoon Charter, January 2013

Shannon and I had the best time on board The Nemo Yacht. Our Captain, Andrea, was extremely knowledgeable about sailing, navigating through the channels and all the best places to anchor during our trip. Andrea had a great sense of humor, cooks a mean steak, and is an awesome bartender.

Valentina, was the best cook!!! Valentina prepared each meal like she was cooking for her family. We ate Gnocchi Pomodoro, Chicken Saltimbocca, Tuna Nicoise Salad, Homemade pizzas, Salmon Filets, and Mediterranean Salad. Valentina would surprise us with delicious meal after meal. We gained too much weight when we were sailing, but we never complained one bit. The crew gave us the space we needed to enjoy our Honeymoon.

Nemo was beautifully designed with many places to lounge around, either on the front trampolines or the Salon in the back. Nemo was very clean and always in excellent working order. The rooms were spacious with plenty of ventilation and light, being 63, it was a bit tough walking through the galley, but I could actually sit up in bed without hitting my head on the ceiling.

If any potential visitors want to sail on the Nemo, we truly recommend going and experience the sheer picturesque clear waters, pink sandy beaches and the solitude of the open ocean.

In Guestbook:
Andrea and Valentina,
> thank you for showing us the beautiful Antigua and Barbuda! Your impeccable hospitality has gone above and beyond any expectations. We had the most enjoyable time together and hopefully our paths will cross again soon. Thank you so much

Andrea and Valley were great hosts and got on very well with our son. Great food!

July 2012

Dear Andrea and Valentina, throghout the whole week you guys have been awesome. You have been the best crew we have had and it made the trip even better. Andrea´s stories made the trip humorous and Valentina´s food was incredible. I also liked the way you guys helped us to find everything around town and attempted to teach us different languages. The memory of this trip and you guys will stay in my mind forever. Thank you for everything you have done. It was an amazing week. Hope

From Toronto Canada

Thank you so much Valentina and Andrea. The Grenadines are beautiful but you made the sailing experience so much more pleasant. You are warm and welcoming. We felt at home with you!
And Valentina, the food was magnifico.
You both went our of your way to make this a very special holiday for us.
Thank you again and we hope to see you soon.
Oded, Toronto Canada

I love Nemo!

Andrea and Valentina, professional to the core! From the very first moment you made us feel as if Nemo was our home. I love Nemo. My girls have had experience with other crews and you made them at home. Never patronizing or making them feel inferior. I noticed that and appreciate it. You both work very well as a team. I watched and noticed how well you work together. Even in difficult situations you never yelled at each other. This behaviour shows a respect that is beyond words. It show a tranparency that endears trust. I trusted you both to take my family on the greatest adventure we have ever had. I had teen girls and fear of the unknown was very real for me. Thank you for alleiving those fears. If you keep up this quality on customer service I know you will be a success for many years to come. Thank you for becoming my friend. Bryon

I cannot imagine living this trip with anyone more loveable than Valentina and Andrea. You two are wonderful, and would gladly do this with you again. Thank you

Jan 2012

Dear Valentina and Andrea,
you made us feel as welcomed guests in your home. There was a positive dynamic between your warm Mediterranean attitude and our outlook on life and people. Enjoy your wonderful work and I am sure we will be in touch again. Thank you

Greece in May

Dear Andrea and Valentina,

I just spoke to the Charterers for the second time, and again they said you were fantastic, that everything was perfect and they could not imagine it being any better, especially your cuisine and the yacht. 10 Texans for 8 days in the Ionian, Greece is a tall order - but you absolutely delivered a dazzling charter, just as I knew you would. I have the greatest respect for who you are, what you do and how you do it! Many, many thanks and please use me as a reference any time!

Wonderful week in the Cyclades

Dear Andrea and Valentina, this has been the most wonderful week in the Cyclades. You have been the best crew we have ever had on a charter. We have really enjoyed our time on the Nemo exploring the Greek islands. It is difficult to say what has been our most favourite day. We have also enjoyed the stories of your travels and definetly the wonderful meals that you have prepared, Valentina. Andrea, thank you for making my girls dance in the bar in Mykonos. Those memories will be with me forever. Hope to charter you again some future time. Thanks for such an awesome Greek experience. Emilee

BVI April 2010

Were the accommodations and general condition of the yacht satisfactory for your charter party?
Yes, we were very satisfied; the Nemo is a brand new catamaran, spacious, excellent conditions.

Was the crew cordial, accommodating and professional?
Yes, Valentina and Andrea were outstanding, their service was impeccable, they always maintained a very professional yet easygoing spirit and they surpassed our expectations for this trip.

How would you describe the quality of the meals prepared and served on board?
The quality of the meals, the diversity of the dishes, and the dedication of the crew to satisfying our requests was extraordinary. They are Italians, hence they are able to provide excellent Italian food, nonetheless, they were very knowledgeable in many other dishes which were superb.

Did your charter experience meet or exceed your expectations?
It exceed them largely.

Valentina & Andrea!
What a magical week. Your service, great good cheer, phenomenal food, stories, hospitality, generosity, and ease were pure delight.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. Nemo is a beauty, as are the two of you.

Dear Valentina and Andrea we feel as if we have been honoured guests in your home foor this last magical week. The weather has been perfect, but the warmth of your hospitality has exceeded it. We take home wonderful memories as well as many delicious recipes! We have felt protected by your skills as navigators as we explored the beautiful islands and reefs. I will miss the sounds of the sea and the way the waves have rocked me to sleep, but what I will miss the most is the kindness that I have seen in your eyes.
We wish you great fortune in your adventures to come. Love

Thanks for letting us be your family for a week...You two were tireless in your dedication to making every moment a pleasure.

Thank you so much for the fabulous job you did with our clients, they indeed enjoyed the time onboard with you. I remain very appreciative that you did this for us and indeed will remember you for future charters. M. Charter Broker

It´s always very pleasant to meet and live together such beautiful moments like the ones I lived with you. I´m thankful for having the opportunity to sail aboard your catamaran: it was really super!
Thank you. Cynthia

Vale and Andrea. The British Virgin Islands are a marvellous place and together with you and cat Nemo we also passed a marvellous time. But the biggest gift was the love you offered to us. May God always bless you and give us the opportunity to meet again. Thanks

The truth is that it´s been a pleasure to meet you and share such wonderful moments. You´re very pleasant people and I´m happy for having known you. It is said that nothing is pure chance and that people who cross your way are for a reason. May we share more trips together! Thanks for everything.

Guest comments 2009
I´ve just completed my third sailing trip with Andrea and Valentina as skipper and hostess of Nemo Yacthing.

Andrea is indeed one of the best skippers that I´ve had the chance to sail with over the past 9 years.

His technical skills, ability to coach and manage the ´crew´

and, last but not least, his friendly attitude make any journey a positive and effective experience for both beginners and advanced crew member.

I was impressed by the warm atmosphere on board also thanks to Valentina who is always there to help and make everybody at ease.
