Dennis has always been fascinated by boats. Growing up in South Africa, he spent every available minute on the water. When he wasn't practicing his boat maneuvers he was honing his water sports skills. This lifelong passion for the ocean set him on a professional course with a long-term goal to become "the captain of the ship". To that end, he has completed numerous marine courses including RYA Yachtmaster Offshore and Professional Superyacht Deckhand
Dennis' charm and affable personality, combined with his excellent capability as a seaman, make him a delightful crew member. Guests on board NENNE who need a little help with the water toys can rely on patient, thoughtful direction. He enthusiastically socializes with everyone and is especially great with children. He says, "As a competent sportsman I enjoy interacting with people, as I am fond of a family orientated environment, filled with fun and humor."

24 Feb - 2nd March, 2019 – An Experience of a Lifetime!
Dearest Donald, Audrey & Dennis,
Thank you for the most incredible setting for the most incredible week. You really took our vacation to the next level with 5 Star cuisine, 5 Star service and 6 Star anecdotes & jokes. Thanks for making life on the water look effortless, while we know you’re all paddling like ducks underneath. You welcomed us and our best friends into your live and became people we want to have in our lives more. So, we’ve promised our kids to come back – can’t wait for you guys to meet Vince Jr. (x3!).
Thank you, thank you, thank you for an experience of a lifetime. We can’t imagine spending it with any other crew. From Donald’s hilarious tales and jokes and Audrey’s delicious meals and Dennis’s helpful hands – our hears and tummies and glasses were always full. You made us feel like family! We are so happy and grateful that we got to share this wonderful adventure with you. We hope to return one day and be repeat guests.
We want to thank you for the amazing hospitality! You crushed it! From the fabulous gourmet food, to the hilarious commentary. It was truly a pleasure. Donald, you have found your calling. You all made it appear effortless. A special shout out to Dennis for his excellent personalized service.
Thank you seems like too small a word to express how grateful we are to have spent this week aboard the Nenne. You kept us smiling and laughing with full bellies and full glasses of pinot grigio! Good luck Dennis on you next boating adventure! Sad to be leaving but heading out with a huge smile on my face and a very happy heart!
I am full of gratitude from the week on Nenne with you! Memories for a lifetime. Chop Chop…Time to go home. Yes, Yes, Yes we will be back!
All the best in your future adventures!
Wow, what a great week! Thank you for all of the great memories, consistent humor, great food and knowledge of the area. We can’t wait to come back!!
Thank you for an amazing week of wit, humor and keeping us laughing. We appreciate all your amazing food. It was a true adventure!

Donald, Audrey & Dennis,
Thank you all for an amazing week in the BVIs! Y’all are the best crew all around and I cannot imagine every coming back to the BVIs without you. From the jokes, cooking, conversation and service you make the trip everything I dreamed it would be. Thanks again and I look forward to our next trip!
Y’all out did yourselves! From the stories, adventures, meals & friendship our 2nd trip was amazing. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and making the Nenne our home for the week.
Thank you for such a wonderful charter trip, especially for my first trip to the BVI! You two are such a good team, entertaining us, cooking the most delicious meals (I will email you for recipes!), and keeping us safe as we traveled the beautiful waters. Not sure anything can top this charter (or any other captains!!). You made us feel so welcome and supplied us with endless hilarious stories. We can’t wait to plan another trip with you all. And Dennis has been trained so well, we enjoyed his level of service and always smiling face!
We can’t thank you enough for another fabulous week in paradise! It is hard to put into words how amazing the Nenne crew is. After the hurricanes we were nervous the BVIs would never be what they used to be, but it is obvious they are more than on their way! Good luck with your new adventures in the Bahamas, we already cannot wait to plan our next trip…and who knows…maybe will our “littles”. Thank you again for everything! If you ever feel like coming to Charlotte or Canada, you have a place to stay. Dennis, best of luck in the future, we can’t thank you enough for everything this week! We adored your super friendly always smiling willing to do anything personality and can only hope our children frow up to be as hard working and fun!
Another epic week! Feeling very blessed to be part of this crew of travelers and part of the Nenne family. Too many amazing things to list, but a special shout out to Audrey for keeping us incredibly well fed. Good luck to Dennis on your super yacht adventures! Open invitation to Canada always!
With love, The "H" Family

27 Dec - 3 Jan 2019, New Year Charter – An incredible Week!
Note from broker: The family were very happy, had a great time.
Donald, Audrey & Dennis,
What a sad day it is! This has been the most special week celebrating the end of one year and the start of a new one, snorkeling and diving, sailing to beautiful Anegada plus the delicious food and drinks. We have enjoyed every second! Thank you for making the boat the perfect place for our 8 month old baby, who I know will be a captain and master diver after this trip. I think he has better sea legs than all of us.
Good luck to Dennis, a real fish! Keep us posted on your endeavors, we can’t wait o hear of your next adventures!
We love you guys!
Thank you for making family gathering so special! From the start you made each experience flow with ease even when the odds were against us. The knowledge you each bring to the table is priceless and the grace you express through your hospitality is 5 star! Happy New Year! May you years ahead be filled with abundance.
We can’t thank you enough for making this past week so incredible. Anna and I had a blast sailing, snorkeling and diving with you. Audrey: Your meals were incredible, and I believe you taught us some new tricks that we’ll use going forward (e.g. bacon roses). Also, thank you SO much for organizing our open water certification, our dive on the Rhone is something we’ll never forget. Donald: Thank you for the many hours of great conversations, jokes and card tricks. If you find the time, best of luck with the hang gliding in the nearby area! Dennis: Thank you for all of your help in organizing all of our water activities and mixing our cocktails. We wish you all the best with you future sailing endeavors, and fingers crossed, everything works out with the Black Pearl! You all are a truly wonderful crew!
Thank you so much for such a phenomenal time! We hop you’ll continue to live life to the fullest and have the best time! Also, Dennis: Thank you for all the delicious drinks!

14-22 June,2018 – An Unbelievable Family Experience!!
Dear Audrey, Donald & Dennis,
Where to begin? A fabulous boat, fantastic crew, outstanding meals & constant cocktails! But those are the obvious, what was so fantastic was the warmth & humor, knowledge and friendship that we so quickly shared. It was an unbelievable family experience celebrating Chris’s 70th, and we will never forget this past week. You have all made it very special for us.
All the girls and Jack had such special moments – boom jumping,tubing, learning magic tricks – and we adults enjoyed the sailing, stories and special cocktails.
In a nutshell, we had a wonderful week and can’t thank you enough. Hopefully we’ll be able to join you all again, as it was truly a pleasure!
Well, she said it all! I thank you so much for a fantastic trip. I couldn’t have said it better than Nana. Thank you for the amazing meals,fun activities (like tubing and of course boom jumping) and just an all around awesome time!
Thank you guys so much! First off, I am so grateful that you were so kind and always shining smiles in my morning. Second, the amount of food, drinks and many other things you guys made/brought for us is definitely more than we deserved so thank you for that.
Audrey, I am an extremely picky eater, and let me tell you that you made some of the best food I have ever eaten! Thank you for you nonstop work and glowing personality. I am forever grateful!
Donald, you handle everything with such grace and we will always remember the “Amazing Captain Donald” who was the most fun guy ever! Thank you so, so much!!
Dennis, I am so grateful for you. Not just the fact that you were always getting me things, you were so, so kind and I know the kids looked up to you. I cannot begin to say how grateful am for you and your professionalism. You made this trip so fun and it was incredible to see the way each family member was entertained constantly. Truly an unforgettable experience! Thank you!
Thank you for a truly amazing week. We loved every minute of it and can’t wait to come back again. And a special “thank you” for accommodating the food requests. The kids enjoyed all of it, which is impressive coming from the picky one. Of course, we all enjoyed every meal and the constant stream of cocktails as well. We were lucky to have you all as our crew. We couldn’t have ask for a more professional, funny, caring, knowledgeable and fun group!
You guys are all an amazing crew and it felt like y’all were simply an extension of our family. Thank you for welcoming our family into yours and into your home!!

Thank you very much for the awesome week aboard! I could not have asked for a better 50th. Great cruising, diving….excellent food and cocktails too!
There are not enough stars to rate your attention to every detail of our week on the Nenne! Wonderful snorkels, sails, meals, cocktails, companionship, swims,entertainment, etc. A perfect family vacation for 3 generations! It was indeed a BIG DEAL. Thank you so much!
I don’t think there is much more to say….the diving, food and cruising experience were perfect in every way. Saw the greatest full moon. Thank you!

17-24 March, 2018 ~ A Dream Come True!
Dear Donald, Audrey & Dennis,
Thank you so much for making our 50thAnniversary the perfect week. So much to thank you for. Everyone loved it. You’re the best! Food was the best! Drinks and all the extras too numerous to mention. We loved this trip more than any we have ever taken! Thank you Audrey for all you do! Donald, you are unique! Never met a Captain who makes everything works o well. Audrey, thanks for the best food and thank you for making it all possible. Dennis, you are wonderful! We loved the “Nenne”.
With love from all of us! P.S. I loved the stern ladders which worked so well for me!
Thank you so much for a wonderful escape from the snow!! It was an amazing trip and I had so much fun here!! Lots of fun and the whole crew was amazing. Donald was very funny, and I will never forget you. Same with the other 2. The food was fantastic! Thank you!
This week has been wonderful! Thank you so much for taking such good care of all of us on the beautiful Nenne. I know it could all be exceptional if you exceeded my expectations! Yes, they all are the best and we all had a ball!
Thank you for the BEST trip I’ve ever had! Truly! Everyone was in a great mood for an entire week – you have no idea what an accomplishment that is! I love the boat and I was so lucky to have my own room. Donald – It is nice to meet someone almost as fabulous as I am. I’ve been all over the world and it is truly a feat! Thank you for making my children so happy. The three of us needed it. It’s been a rough year for us.
Audrey – A more amazing feat is that Caroline loved every meal! That has never, ever happened. Please help me by sending your recipes. You have the funniest stories, and the best sound track!
Dennis – You have done a great job. Thank you for being such a good role model. I can’t thank you enough! And I truly can’t express how much I needed the trip and how grateful I am for making my children so happy! The boat was awesome and beautiful, and amazing. It stands out the most (in a good way). And is white as a dove. The crew was awesome. I wish I could of helped, but you guys are better! They are all so nice and helpful and I hope to see you guys again. Thank you! P.S. Your food Audrey was awesome; Donald, you were so funny and Dennis you were very sweet and kind.
Thank you for sharing and creating such an amazing experience. As other writers note, this crew is fantastic, due to the seemingly ease of doing your wonderful work. Thank you for all the adventures, activities, meals and attention this week. I will think of the BVIs and you all as I return back to the cold, rain and snow!
This was the best experience I have ever had. I didn’t like the idea of living on a boat for a week, when I got here my mind just twisted around when I got on the boat. Mostly because you guys were helpful, sweet,kind, funny and so many other things. The service was amazing, and the food and adventures were all so, so,so, so amazing. This week has been a dream come true! Thank you so much for making an experience of my life. I appreciate everything you have done for me and my family this week. P.S. Thank you so much for teaching me to scuba dive Donald!
Thank you for a phenomenal week aboard the Nenne,re-christened as the “Land & Proud Bateu Fernie La Bouche”. Thank you for teaching our girls to dive Donald. We couldn’t have asked for abetter introduction. Audrey – Thank you for putting up with more chaos on a boat than is recommended. Your food was worth every simple calorie thatwe don’t have to count. Dennis - Stay cool and as you say, it has been a HUGE pleasure. You all have been fantastic,the island are stunning and look for us in the Unemployment Bay.
With Love, The "L" Family
5-13 March, 2018 ~ One of the most incredible experience sever!
Donald & Crew,
Out of all the boat trips we’ve been on, this was probably the most recent! (just kidding 😊) 10 of us left and 10 of us returned. Truly amazing experience! Donald, Audrey & Dennis were incredible –food drinks, activities, drinks and more drinks. The boat Nenne was first class all the way ~I (we) have a few observations:
Donald: Best Captain – Best story teller – Best Joke Teller! You always kept an eye on us, always aware and always accommodating.
Audrey: An amazing chef and a sweetheart of a lady (she keeps Donald in check)
Dennis: 3rdtrip for the young lad – The hardest worker we’ve ever seen, he’s going to be the best captain for the future.
Thank you for one of the most incredible experiences ever!
Final Word: 5 stars all the way!
Thank you all so much! Fabulous time! So many “scuuuzze me” moments.
Love you all
SCUUUZZZE ME!! This sums up the entire trip!! You made the trip for all of us! Donald, Audrey & Dennis crew made the trip magical. Thank you for putting up with our antics& special requests! You are friends for life – We’ll see you again soon!

6-13 January 2018 in BVI - Diving Certification family charter
Richard, Audrey & Donald,
This past week spent with my brother and family, and with you three has been one of the best weeks I’ve ever had! You all did everything possible to make sure every detail was taken care of. The food was incredible! (Audrey, maybe, just maybe I will be inspired to cook again!) Donald, you kept us laughing and took care of making sure we were entertained and safe – all at the same time. Richard, you noticed everything that needed doing and it’s done before anyone knows it needed doing! 😊 Thank you all for an incredible experience. Next time I know I still won’t dive but I will be an experienced snorkeler– oops – I mean “professional”! Please let me know if you are in Atlanta or Colorado any time! We would love for you to visit! And I do hope to be back on your boat again!
You’re the 3 most awesome professionals I’ve ever had the privilege to know! You may not know this,but we have talked about doing this trip for 30 years! Life & responsibilities got complicated and we’re just now realizing this dream. And now that it’s over, I can’t believe what we’ve been missing all these years! You three are amazing,each setting the bar so high in your very different rolls. Donald – you are most definitely “the most interesting man in the world” with your vast knowledge of virtually every topic covered this week, not to mention keeping us all laughing the whole week! Audrey – good grief the food was amazing down to the very last detail. I will bethinking about almost every dish you made for quite awhile, and wishing I could just eat at “Audrey’s” again someday. Richard - what can I say? You are the man filling needs before they are even recognized as a need. And you have the most gracious spirit about you. A joy to be around!! You three will see this family again someday! Thank you so much for the best week EVER! Here’s wishing you 3 a lovely break followed by an amazing rest of 2018 with your individual lives and your charters.
Being in the “service business” all my professional life,I know what it means to “delight” one’s customers. You 3 went beyond the “delight” the customer many times that these families have decided you are “professional delighters”.
Seriously, you made all aspects of our trip so fun, easy,varied, relaxing and meanwhile….a trip that we4 will not forget. I really appreciate you and we hope/plan to see you in the next 2 years.
P.S. Thanks for getting my wife and I remarried…that was not in the brochure!
It is hard to put into words how incredible these past 7days have been! Donald, thank you for the continuous belly laughs, getting us all scuba certified and sailing us around the BVIs! Audrey – no words. Your artistry and creativity with food is so enjoyable, as well as your sweet & caring spirit. Richard, you are the man! Thank you for being an incredible host who always had a smile on your face! The three of you are a dynamic and incredible team. I honestly had as much fun getting to know ya’ll as much as the trip. If you are ever near Portland, OR please visit. Josh and I would love to host you. We will be seeing you guys again!
Thank you for making this trip unforgettable. No matter where life takes us, you will always be a part of some of our best memories. I am personally anticipating some new, exciting and good things for 2018and your kindness, service and selflessness was the first of these things –thank you.
May the Lord bless you. May he cause his face to shine upon you. May he lift up his countenance on you, and give you his peace. (Numbers 6:24-26)
I can’t put into words what an unbelievable experience this last week was for all of us. All of you went above and beyond on every aspect of the trip and we can’t thank you enough! Aside from the incredible food, stories and adventures we will value the friendship that we have found and will run into you all in the future. You are all so genuine and it was the human, relational part of the trip that made it unforgettable for me. Audrey, continue to keep “Captain Don” in check! Hope to see all of you soon.
I thank every single one of you for the greatest, most relaxing, and energizing weeks of my life. This was an unbelievable trip filled with absolutely unforgettable memories & experiences. It’s funny to think back how short, yet long this week lasted. The “personal” aspect that each one of you brought to the trip is what made the trip so special to me. Keep providing incredible experiences to everyone blessed enough to take this week. Richard, keep eating cereal bud. It’s the best food category by far! I hope to see all of you soon.

Richard, Audrey & Donald,
WHAT a trip! We had such a blast out on the Nenne, certainly no something this group will forget. Audrey, OMG your food – let me know as soon as you release a cookbook. Despite all the healthy options, I’ve eaten enough of everything to put on 10 lbs. Donald – your jokes are almost as good (read:bad) as Bruce’s…kept us laughing the whole trip. And Richard, amazing drinks/hospitality/literally everything else required on the boat. Plus, what a phenomenal G-Easy rap star quality. I hope we can come back and sail again with you three soon!
Y’all made this week on of the best in my life. Totally truly first class, amazingly attentive and looked out for every need. Thank you for being such great loving people. The world need more people like you. Thank you for making me feel welcome and having my back.

I came aboard with fears of claustrophobia and boredom. Boy, was I wrong!! Thank you for pampering me in ways I could not imagine and for teaching me to slow down and relax again! This has been the vacation to top all the others! The food has been incredible,and each meal anticipated with joy. Audrey, you are amazing! Donald,you are an amazing captain and all-around jokester/host! Thank you for all the humor and fun. Richard, you are such a great bar tender and non-stop host! Thank you for all the kindness and smiles. It’s been memorable, can’t wait to come back.
We had the best time on our first week long sail. We will be back for sure! Every meal was amazing, drinks were always flowing and activities a plenty. We will absolutely be back for another amazing adventure!
P.S. I would LOVE any recipes you are willing to share.

Captain Donald, Audrey and Richard.
Thank you for a wonderful week! We have had a blast seeing all there is to see and do in the British Virgin Islands. Thanks for all the special attention towards my son. He will remember this trip forever. Also thanks for all the delicious food and all the chicken cooked all week. The ship was beautiful, but our experiences were made by the careful attention of the crew. Thanks for a wonderful vacation! Thank you so much for the great week we had in the BVI. You are a fantastic captain, the food was amazing and the attention to detail by you and your crew was second to none. All of the activities you suggested were perfect for our family and our vacation.

Donald,thank you for the amazing experiences on this trip! You never seem to disappoint! (I am jealous of your drone). Audrey, thank you for all of the delicious food! I think that the Tropical Chicken Salad is still my favorite. Richard, if I ever decide to pop around to South Africa, I will be sure to message you. By the way, I will dominate you in any game of your choice!
Thank you for another amazing vacation. I had so much fun doing the dives,jumps and the scooters! I will miss you and can’t wait to see you again!

10– 16 June 2017 ~ Outstanding!!
Donald and Audrey and Richard,
Our journey with you over the last week has been outstanding! The memories created will last a lifetime and leave us boarding the plane back to Maryland with a plan for the next trip! For me there is nothing better in life to watch my husband and boys laugh and smile together. You all certainly made that happen … 5 stars! The amazing creative food, never ending cocktails, scuba, snorkeling, map briefings and great jokes and tales along the way … As I’m sure you three sit back and observe “this” crew, we also did the same. Each of you is a key element to the success of this wonderful vacation. Donald –thank you for your vast knowledge of the sea and worldly wisdom and whit. Audrey – thank you for the amazing gift of planning and preparing excellent cuisine that met and far exceeded our expectations. Your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Richard– you will go very far in life … your smile, drive to work hard and constant ability to make us all new libations … so fun! Enjoy your journey. So fair well for now – until we meet again! If ever near DC, please don’t hesitate to call and look us up. All our best.
Whereto start? Thank you, thank you for one of the most wonderful vacations! Your care for us and your attention to detail was just perfect! Donald – all the adventures you planned for us were a blast. Your knowledge about the different dives and the Baths made the experience that much better. Taking us to Foxy’s (and meeting him!),Willy T’s (Diving and jumping off) and Soggy Dollar were perfect Hot Spots. Your smile,energy and enthusiasm were infectious. Audrey –every meal was perfectly planned and so very delicious. Thank you for taking such good care of us this week. You made us feel more like family than just guests. Please call us when you are in Florida so we can meet for drinks and a little reunion. And Richard – thank you for all you did to make our vacation perfect! Keeping us hydrated or “double parked”, you are the best! Until we meet again!

27May – 03 June 2017 ~ Wow, wow, wow!!!!!!
Donald,Audrey and Richard. Wow! What a vacation. How did we get so lucky to get you as our crew?? I have done the BVI vacation with another outfit. It was good – but you put them to shame. In a sentence …above and beyond. It is so clear to me that you all have worked to exceed our expectations. Thank you for that. While you didn’t get to see that side of it,you had a bunch of stressed out people on board. It melted away at minute one with the welcome aboard. Thank you for pulling off the ultimate Disney for adults. Richard, you are a lovely young man with a killer smile. You will go far in life. Ya’ll are welcome ANYTIME in Texas. I am confident we will see you again in the near future.
Wow,wow, wow!!!!!! Words cannot express how this venture has been and will be one of the most amazing, spectacular vacations of our lives … bucket-list for sure!! Donald – thanks for the adventures, stories and laughter. Audrey – thanks for your amazing food, every meal. Richard – best dark and stormy maker ever! We look forward to being one of your repeat clients!
Thank you for the best vacation EVER! We have never been so sad to leave a place. The diving, sailing, sling-shotting and sight-seeing were absolutely amazing, but they are nothing compared to the welcome, conversation and fun we shared with you all! Thank you, Donald for the patience,guidance and wisdom during our scuba training sessions; to Audrey for the incredible food and never letting us even THINK about being hungry; to Richard for the awesome drinks and the incredibly hard work you put into making us feel at home. We hope to see you all again sometime soon!
How to say thank you for one of the best weeks of our lives? We’re not quite sure. Thank you for the many meals, the many laughs, and the many memories; thank you for each of the times you looked out for us and noticed a want or need we had that we didn’t even realize. Donald – thank you for daring me to be bold. Audrey – thank you for all of the special meals you made for me, pescatarian special. Richard – thank you for making me feel totally welcome in a very new environment. Thanks for the best, best, best week!
