Catamaran Elysium Overview

Elysium is a 2010 62ft Privilege catamaran that has been meticulously cared for. She is unique among the 62ft Privileges because she has three king cabins, which means that she offers more space per person. Each cabin has a king size bed, flat screen, love seat, and hydro massaging showers that are separate from the heads. The owner's cabin is even more luxurious with dual levels, desk space and a full closet.

The yacht can also accommodate a 7th guest in the forward v-berth. The v-berth is a very basic accommodation with a twin bed and wet head.

The exterior is just as luxurious as the interior with a shaded lounge on the flybridge and cushions around the trampolines.

Elysium is equipped with diving gear, tanks, and an on-board air compressor. Dive certified charter guest can enjoy up to 5 dives per week at no additional cost. The yacht also offers all of the popular water sports including kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and fishing. The 70hp tender is perfect for towing sports like wake boarding, knee boarding, and tubing.

Another aspect that makes Elysium stand out is the crew’s dedication to using local organic produce. They receive two boxes of organic produce each week from the Ridge to Reef Farm in St Croix, making Elysium a forerunner in the farm-to-table movement. In addition, they buy local fish and organic dairy whenever possible.

Why you should book Elysium!

Three king-size en-suite guest cabins makes the yacht ideal for three couples. Elysium is a beautiful yacht throughout.

Meet the Crew

Dirk & Nina-Sue

Dirk and Nina-Sue both grew up in the Cape wine lands of South Africa only 10 minutes away from the Atlantic ocean. Having known each other for 7 years their journey started at a traditional South African BBQ over a glass of Chenin Blanc. Most of their childhood memories is on the coast surfing, fishing, diving and eating lots and lots of crayfish. The ocean has always been a place that made us feel humble, inspired and salty all at once.

Dirk and Nina-Sue together started one of the most wonderful adventures sailing in Panama, Bocas Del Toro, the thick rain forest and the San Blas Islands with the Kuna tribe culture and traditions. They made their way through the Panama Canal into the Pacific where they had a very special experience of running whale watching charters.

Captain Dirk has been sailing professionally for 8 years, in which he has done 7 Atlantic crossings and more than 70,000nm. He started diving at a young age of 12 and got his Dive Masters in Mozambique where he worked as Dive Master for a while before returning to the sea. With a strong sense of marine engineering, Dirk spent the last year as a maintenance manager for a BVI charter company and hopes to finish a marine engineering ticket in the next couple of years. He loves teaching guests sailing. Being a surfer, he has had great success teaching guests how to skurf behind the tender. Although he is a keen fisherman he is not the biggest one on the boat, that would-be more

Chef Nina-Sue grew up on a wine farm with a big family who have always been passionate food and wine lovers. On the farm, they not only had grapes but also fresh organic vegetables and there was always space for an herb garden and a good harvest. Her dad has always been a good fisherman so a fresh tuna or yellowtail was a treat.

Nina-Sue attended a top-notch cooking school in South Africa where she earned her diploma. She studied dramatic arts and worked in the entertainment industry for a while before she started traveling the world and sailing the seas. Nina-Sue is an advanced diver and absolutely in love with the underwater aquatic wonderland life.

Dirk and Nina-Sue are both super exited to be onboard Elysium, she is a true beauty!

June 2018
Our party of five—3 adults and two boys ages 10 and 12—spent a week in June 2018 on board the yacht Elysium crewed by Dirk and Nina Sue. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest rating, we rate them at least a 15! In short, they are a superb crew in every respect—from safety to seamanship to ship maintenance to culinary delights paying close attention to the individual likes and dislikes of both adults and children to SCUBA dives to conducting water sports for hours on end to being warm people who really like their jobs and want each of their guests to have a great time.
Nina Sue could be a chef in the finest restaurants in the world and Dirk is extremely skilled in both sailing and water sports activities. Together they combine an amazing ability for warmth, competence, and flexibility in meeting the diverse needs of their guests. We hope they stay on for another year because we would dearly like to sail with Dirk and Nina Sue again in 2019. We would be hard pressed to find another crew who could match their expertise and dedication. Dirk and Nina Sue are truly a “class act”.

It is now one week since we returned from the Caribbean - and the euphoria hasn’t landed yet. We continuously rediscover magic moments from Elysium and the Caribbean. What a treat we got on this family vacation. It's interesting to discover, when you tell the stories to family, friends and work colleagues - to see their open faces, when speaking about sailing on a 62 feet long catamaran, with a crew, with dinners and cocktails, with a relaxation station, scuff board, snorkeling, fishing tuna (eaten by a shark), sunrises, sunsets and doing 75 miles by sails…. - It was amazing.
Speaking about the crew… - it's not even close just to call them the "crew". Captain Dirk and Nina-Sue are two amazing people… - It is rare to meet people with such a passion for what the do - and their level of service and attention. They made us feel very welcome - and it was almost like making new friends. Alex felt in the end of the week… a bit sorry - that they had to clear the tables after breakfast/dinners, so he decided to chip in, just to be supportive and helpful (to his new friends (and he would normally appreciate a very high service level even at home - where the service normally are at a lower level:o)! Captain Dirk and Nina-Sue do magic on Elysium! Please let them know.
Elysium… she is a beauty! You could of course think, that when you anchor in St. Barts and are surrounded by super and mega yachts in the multi-million dollar level, it is difficult to compete, but we were very impressed about the beauty and genius interior design of Elysium. The cabins, lounge areas and many hideaways of the boat made it a luxury accommodation.

We had the most fantastic time! Dirk and Nina-Sue sure made it special. We have only good things to say about them and would say anyone lucky enough to have the experience of sailing on their charter will be impressed. Thanks again, Cliff and Rita

Reviews for Elysium with previous crew:

Rebecca and Theunis were wonderful! We can’t say enough about how well they took care of us. I’m sure it’s a little more challenging when there are only two guests to strike the right balance between attentiveness and alone time, but they were spot on. We never felt smothered or ignored. While the Elysium is equipped with all the toys one could ask for and both T and Rebecca are active outdoor types, we really just wanted to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and tranquility of the trip. Never did we feel pressured to don the scuba gear or rush off to another excursion. They instinctively sensed just the right amount of pace we were looking for.

Every stop was great and we never stayed anywhere longer or shorter than we would have liked.

The master suite was extremely comfortable and we didn’t have to adjust our sleep to a smaller bed than we have at home. The flybridge offered great views throughout the trip.

The food was incredible. Rebecca prepared a variety of outstanding dishes that we want the recipes for! The timing of the meals was always perfect – we never felt rushed or like we were starving. Rebecca and T quickly adjusted the quantity of food (smaller portions) to our liking and once I told them how much I love bacon with breakfast I never went without.

Scott K, aboard Catamaran Elysium February 2017  sailing the Virgin Islands

The crew were fantastic! David was very convivial and full of energy and Thryn was a great hostess and wonderful chef.

Elysium is beautiful and well-maintained. Very comfy beds. We loved that she was so well laid out. It never felt like we were in each other’s way onboard.

Food was unbelievably wonderful. Definitely customized, as we like spicy ethnic dishes and Thryn did quite a few of those for us!

We’d love to sail with David and Thryn again sometime in the future. l would definitely recommend Sailing Directions.
