Captain Andrea began sailing in regattas on Lake Como before becoming an instructor for the Italian Sailing Federation. He is a fantastic teacher being both professional and patient.

After working for different companies and sports federations since 2000 he committed again full time to his sailing passion with catamaran Nemo, to offer unique, exclusive and eco-friendly vacations for all those who love sea. His experience of over 50,000 miles and four Atlantic passages guarantee safe and professional cruises.

Try a taste of Italy in the Caribbean! Valentina is your talented and capable chef on board Nemo. In addition to her natural capabilities in all styles Italian, she has a special affinity for the fresh tastes of Mediterranean cuisines in general. Many items are made from scratch on board, try the fresh baked breads, the boat-made chocolates, and, while you are at it, how about a taste of Lemoncello, especially made for you?! She is an adventurous chef, traveler and can make all sorts of other international menus to your taste or her suggestion. As a chef she attended numerous cooking courses as another way to increase her scope.

At a recent BVI crewed yacht show chef's competition Valentina obtained 1st Prize - Best Use of Rum, 2nd Prize - Starter, 3rd Prize - Entrée.

As hostess, Valentina's goal is to make your stay relaxing and satisfying. She has a degree in foreign languages and speaks Italian, English and Spanish. She has been sailing on charter yachts since 2005, having crossed the Atlantic four times and racking up over 30,000 miles. She loves sports, and has an Advanced Diving license.

Reviews for Nemo with Andrea & Valentina:

Nemo suited our group perfectly. We could be together when we wanted but have our own space when needed. It was always clean and the Christmas winds provided plenty of winds thru the hatch. We really enjoyed hanging at the front of the boat on the fat boy mats.

Valentina did an exquisite job for us with regards to our meals. We had some dietary restrictions and she pulled off our three course meals and apps without a problem. For our girls the food was a definite highlight of our trip.

Andrea and Valentina were very knowledgeable about the islands and the ocean. They were very attentive and very accommodating.

We had been to the BVI before sailing with couples but never to the USVIs. We felt our trip was well suited for our family who likes to hike, snorkel and paddleboard and a few hours each day of sailing.

The service with Sailing Directions is always seamless.

Joanne Y, aboard Catamaran Nemo sailing the Virgin Islands

The crew were great. Could not have been nicer and they were very competent with everything they did. They kept the boat very clean at all times.

Valentina is an awesome cook. We enjoyed every meal. She even made accommodations for my son who was a picky eater at times.

Andrea helped us choose a great itinerary that was a good mix of everything from adventure, relaxation and sightseeing.

Additional reviews:

 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!

Tania

 January 20, 2017 ~ Beautiful Memories
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 youve 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

 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.

Thanks,

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!

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

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!

 April 17-23, 2016 BVI Great Boat and Crew
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!

Ginny

I second everything Ginney wrote. I couldn't have said it better myself! Great boat and crew.

 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!

 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! You are the perfect hosts and Nemo is a great home away from home! The food and drinks were amazing and the scenery and weather spectacular. 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!

Maggie

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

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.

 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.

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!

Without a doubt, this has been the most exciting experience of my life. The sights, sounds, sea, sailing around the BVI has been incredible. Thanks to Valentina and Andrea for being the best crew and hosts ever. We could not have done better choosing our charter. So many new experiences, too. 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. You ran the Yacht and watched over them like a father. You made sure when they were in the water that they had the best gear on. You gave Abigail great advice in playing Farkle! You are super funny! BS was a great game too! They miss you very much, already! Thank you again for the great trip!

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!

"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

"Thank you for a delightful sail, we have enjoyed many charters and yours is tip top. Thank you for sharingyour home and time with our family." Vicky and family

"Thank you for an absolutely wonderful week! Andrea and Valentina, we've found new friends in you. You've made us feel both welcome and special-and for that, we thank you. In everything from the exquisite food to the amazing experiences (and Cristina's sailing internship included), the week was perfect. We even learned a little Italian!Grazie! We look forward to sailing with yiou in Greece someday!With love,buena suerte!"

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.

David

 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

 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.

Eric

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

Alicia

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

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

Enrique

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.

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.
