Yacht Description

Nemo is a Dufour Gib’Sea 51, designed for cruising and to make sailing a pleasurable experience at all times. Award-winning J&J designers succeeded at the directive to create “the most spacious cruising yacht in her size”. Aimed at the charter trade, NEMO combines the thrill of sailing performance with maximized accommodations.

Below decks, the saloon is spacious, with convenient galley and elegant dinette seating for all guests. Classically crafted, rich wood interiors are flooded with light from numerous hatches and port lights. New, cream-colored upholstery adds to the light and airy feel.

NEMO is designed with four, spacious queen berth cabins, two of which may be converted to twin berths. There is also a crew cabin positioned forward. NEMO is commercially licensed to carry a maximum of six guests. With four queen cabins available, NEMO is a great option for four friends traveling solo, as each can have their own queen cabin. And when converted to twins, on a family charter kids can each have their own bunks. All cabins are ensuite with plush bathroom towels and warm-water showers.

For charter friends and families with children, two cabins can be converted to twins, making NEMO exceptionally adaptable. Each cabin is decorated with art themes in support of wildlife ‘adopted’ annually by the crew through the WWF – Blue Footed Booby, Green Sea Turtle, Bottlenose Dolphin, Brown Pelican, Humpback Whale and Harbour Seal.

The huge cockpit is one of Nemo’s best features. There is room enough for the entire charter party to comfortably enjoy the sail, canapés at cocktail hour, or dining al fresco. NEMO’s twin helm design and pass-through transom are especially appreciated when under sail, affording lots of space and an extremely comfortable area to relax in. The bimini and sun awning keep the party cool and protected from the sun.

During 2016 S/Y Nemo and her trusty tender Dory, received a complete overhaul including a new engine, rigging, through-hulls, hatches and portholes, spray-hood windows and dinghy chaps. The refit also includes upgrades to the interior woodwork and upholstery.

Experienced sailors are encouraged to try their hand at the helm, or Captain Neil will happily provide guests with instruction. At anchor, enjoy a swim and snorkel off the back of the boat, launch the paddleboard or two-person kayak, or simply enjoy the view. Nemo is the perfect charter yacht for a sailing vacation in the Caribbean.

Yacht Accomodations

S/Y Nemo has a wooden interior with lots of light throughout as she has 29 hatches / port lights. The main saloon and dining area is open plan, light and airy, and can comfortably sit six guests, all of whom can sit back, relax and enjoy the delicious breakfasts, lunches, aperitifs and dinners served on board. All the new upholstery is cream to continue the light and airy feel.

The cockpit is one of S/Y Nemo’s best features. Her twin helm design and pass-through transom combine to create a great space when sailing and an extremely comfortable area to relax in. Guests tend to enjoy dinning on deck the most, and here S/Y Nemo can also easily sit all six guests. Her swimming platform provides great water access, as well as easy access to the dinghy, kayak and paddleboard. On deck we have Kaisrs and a hammock for guests to relax and soak up the tropical sunshine on.

All guest cabins are queen-sized cabins, and have an ensuite shower room. The maximum capacity is 6 pax, but the 4 cabins are a great choice for single guests.

Each of the four guest cabins has three windows, and one in the ensuite, continuing her light and airy feel. Two of the cabins can also be converted into twins. The crew have a separate cabin and ensuite. All the cabins have electric fans.

Each cabin is themed with art to support wildlife we ‘adopt’ annually through the WWF – Blue Footed Booby, Green Sea Turtle, Bottlenose Dolphin, Brown Pelican, Humpback Whale and Harbour Seal.

Crew Profile

CAPTAIN NEIL COLLIER:

Neil is very knowledgeable and very nice. He inspires confidence, which makes him an excellent teacher and great fun to be around. Neil grew up in Birmingham. As a teenager, he was already competent at sailing many types of boats, from Hobie Cats to yachts. He was also an accomplished football player. But his greatest determination was success as a RAF fighter pilot. He spent a lot of time as a RAF cadet, flying gliders, small airplanes and honing a natural facility for mechanics and engineering. His eventual pursuit of sailing qualifications was coincidentally inspired by a RAF cadet adventure training week aboard a yacht.

Neil graduated university with a degree in mechanical engineering. From there he built and ran a very successful design and manufacturing company. But after 20 years ashore he could no longer resist the lure of the sea. In 2014 Neil achieved his Ocean Yachtmaster and established a reputation for excellence and integrity teaching sailing as a RYA cruising instructor and charter skipper. He loves to involve everyone in the enjoyment of sailing and the unique peace and excitement that can be found at sea.

Neil has mentored teenage students, counseled on a telephone helpline, and taught English as a second language. His endearing charm and easy going demeanor make him very approachable and unintimidating. “Aboard NEMO we have an interactive charter style,” says Neil. “We encourage a hands-on approach with sailing and watersports. I especially enjoy teaching beginners. During a holiday guests are relaxed and receptive, plus there is no pressure for certificates and deadlines. It is very rewarding to see guests’ excitement as they improve their knowledge, even if they are already experienced sailors! Per glowing testimonials, guests wholeheartedly agree!

CAPTAIN/CHEF SAMANTHA BURROUGH:

Samantha Burrough, affectionately called Sam, is truly a citizen of the planet. Her father was a RAF fighter pilot and growing up on bases in the UK, Germany and Belgium offered many privileged experiences. Sam had ponies and competed in dressage, show-jumping and cross-country. In Germany, fabulous skiing, just out the back door, consumed her weekends. Most of all, living abroad instilled a love of international travel.

Sam was super excited about a future working in Europe and studied German, Spanish and politics at Bradford University where she earned a BA Hons. Despite training to do simultaneous translation, she applied her language skills in the global IT industry. For the next 20 years, she was living the dream in Italy, Spain, Germany, Singapore, Australia and the US. It was in San Francisco, sailing around the bay, that first inspired a career change. She obtained US sailing qualifications, then her Yachtmaster in the Caribbean.

Sam speaks fluent English, German, and conversational Spanish. She also has an impressive repertoire of Italian food words. Because, it was Italy that ignited her passion for cooking. She took a one-month cordon bleu cookery course and was then whisked off to work in the Italian alps. In a word, “fabulous”! As the Chef aboard NEMO, Sam brings a range of cooking styles and flavors to the table, including Italian. Her menu has repeatedly earned her rave guest reviews, such as “seriously delicious”, for her Roasted Mahi Mahi with Feta & Herb Crumble. Guests also admire her endless energy, attentive caring, and most delightful sense of humor. Aboard NEMO, prepare to eat, drink and be merry!
