Greetings from our Nordhavn 62,  INFINITY ∞                                  

We are Julie & Andy Nemier from North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.                 CDN vertical

We purchased our vessel in November 2012 and headed south a year later, for places unknown.   An East-to-West circumnavigation is certainly the intent (God willing),,, but we feel blessed for every day we get on the boat, and take each day as it comes.

  1. Hi Andy,I’m looking at buying a Nordhavn 62,for my wife and I to cruise the Pacific ,based from Melbourne,we are boat people (Bertrams up to 35 foot)
    Question,are you able to manage a 62 footer with just the 2 of you?

    My only concern if we bought one,would be the managing of one as 2 people.

    regards Rob.

  2. Hi Rob,
    My wife and I handle the 62 around the docks just fine. In fact, I could single-hand the vessel if required, no worries. For distance travelling, it’s a matter of just getting into the groove with the watches. A third / fourth person is handy for multiple day transits but not absolutely required.

  3. Congratulations on your 26th wedding anniversary… May you both see another 26 happy, prosperous, and healthy 26 years cruising aboard Infinity!

  4. Many, thanks Gary! We sure do feel blessed being able to share this time together, passionately. I think the cruising lifestyle enables us to get more out of ‘everything’.

  5. “The Voyage” page has stopped working. The jumping arrows, when clicked on, do not link to the photos of your stops in Mexico. Are the links broken or did you remove the pages? I enjoy your story. Incredible make over/interior decorating of the boat. Good travels.

  6. Hi Gilbert. From time-to-time the site develops issues, but I just checked it, and all seems to be working fine. Whenever you press a jumping ‘balloon’ it will immediately bring up a description box, then press “More Info” at the bottom-right of that box – and that should bring you to the Voyage Page you’re after. Thank you for kind words about the boat. : )

  7. Hi Gilbert – Update 29/Sep/2014: Your note spurned me into action,,, You should find everything working more intuitively now, no more jumping balloons or ‘more-info’ boxes. The site has been streamlined for faster redraws, and hopefully you’ll find it more uniform & consistent through-out.

  8. I am glad the site is up and accepting comments again. I look forward to seeing more about your time in Pacific!

  9. HI Tim,
    Thank you for your comment & participation. Please comment as often as you wish! We welcome the interaction : )
    I’ll take this opportunity to update some of our future plans.
    BORA BORA & TAHITI were great. We have also visited MOOREA. We’ll be staying in TAHITI for a couple of weeks, then moving on to discover a few more of the Society Islands,,, HUAHINE & RAIATEA.
    Then we will visit the Cook Islands (RAROTONGA, and perhaps AITUTAKI).
    After that, we’ll continue working our way West, visiting TONGA and FIJI.
    New Zealand is our final destination for 2016, hopefully arriving Auckland, October 1st.
    ,,, our Kids, Chloë & Kal, left us last night, so it’s just Julie and I from now on.

  10. Very pleased your blog is back on track. Love reading about the trials and tribulations of cruising some far flung places.

    • Yes, back-on-track Karl ! – Thank you for your encouragement & participation. I do really enjoy writing about the experience too, although the time to do it is a luxury. Sometimes ,you just have to make time ?.

  11. Hi Andy & Julie,

    If you decide to head down to Sydney and need anything please let us know.
    We are searching for our 62′ at the moment and have been following your journey.

    Terry & Pam

    • Hello Terry & Pam!
      Thank you for your most kind offer. Jay & I have now moved from the Whitsundays, down to the Gold Coast (although up-hill all the way ?). We’re going to pull INFINITY out to get fresh coat of bottom paint. Gotta tell you, I admire your taste in boats! ?. If you need a Buyers’ Broker assistance in selecting your vessel, well that is something I can assist you with!
      Thank you for your note. ? ?

  12. Hmmmm, the mythical Vanuatu post, looking forward to the read. It was great meeting both yourself and Julie at the Sanctuary Cove boat show.

    • Ah, yes Peter – the mythical Vanuatu post indeed!! Clearly, I need to shake the tree a bit,,, to get the writing mojo flowing again. Perhaps a different perspective is required? So, right now, I’m sitting in darkness in the pilothouse at 0130 waiting for inspiration. I wonder if Hemingway started this way?

  13. Very happy I discovered your blog. My wife and I are contemplating buying a Nordhavn in a few years and cruising for part of the year. We will most likely buy one between 62 and 68’, so your blog is very relevant. We live in Fort Lauderdale and are avid boaters. I will have a lot of questions for you over the next couple of years so I apologize in advance if I am a pain.

    • Hi Michael, Welcome aboard INFINITY ! Purchasing your Expedition Yacht and cruising your local waters will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. As you start increasing your cruising grounds, the returns are exponential. You are most welcome to ask questions here, in fact I encourage it ?. I would be pleased to assist in any way I can – I just love talking boats. ❤️

  14. Hello Mr Nemier Well You look older now From last time I saw you around 1989 LOL

    I remember Dick Bullock catching you in the cabin, Thinking you were the culprit Drinking away making all the Noise.

    It’s great what A NUFY (Newfoundland) can do Ha ha Just kidding

  15. Mr. Downey, what a pleasure it is to see you here! Around the time you made your post, I was mentioning you to a colleague,, funny how that happens, eh? Well, 30 years on, I suppose I do look a bit older,,, feel it too!! ? Thanks for looking us up, and please give my regards to Touly!

  16. Hi Julie & Andy,

    My name is Brian & my wife is Vicki. We are looking at an 2002 – N62 and we are in need of some guidance – feedback on this model. We want a 62 but we are struggling with the age of the vessel vs. a newer model. Would you be willing to talk to us? It would be so greatly appreciated. My email is below.

    Brian & Vicki New

    • Hello Brian & Vicki! I would consider it an honour to talk with you guys – and your timing is perfect! I’m just finishing up an offshore project in India. I’ll send you guys an email once I hit the Hotel, later this afternoon (Dec 1, 2019). Talk soon.

  17. Greetings Andy and Julie, Love your blog, we are the happy owners of ‘Opal Lady’ (N43). We just passed ‘Infinity’ in the marina (we were walking not boating – ‘Opal Lady’ is parked up in Darwin for the wet) and thought we would drop you a line on the off chance you might be free for a coffee and chat sometime this week (we leave on the 12th – apologies for the late notice). Regards Suz and Peter

    • Hello Susan and Peter! So sorry, it seems I have REALLY neglected this blog of late, and totally missed your reply. Once again, please accept my apologies. The good news (if you can call it that) is that I now find myself with the time to devote back into this site and catch up, (as Covid-19 wreaks havoc on the world). Julie and I would love to share a coffee with you guys anytime you are down this way. Please look us up again.

  18. Apologies ‘Infinity’ readers; I didn’t realise the coffee invitation would go straight up on the public site. Regards

    • No issues Peter! You are most certainly welcome to comment here anytime ?

  19. How’s the Australia write up coming along ? Waiting patiently in a cold wet and a windy European homeland.

    • Hi Karl,
      Thank you for the prod. I have started sorting through the process of weeding through the Australia photos. I should have something up in the next week or two.

Reply here,,, what are your thoughts?
