Andimo's Crew Profile

 
 

Meet your crew onboard Catamaran Andiamo

Your Crewed Catamaran Captain Jim Taylor

Jim and Jayne Taylor met in Naples, Italy, where Jim served as a U.S. Navy officer and Jayne was the visiting daughter of a British Army officer. Since marrying they have wanted to combine sailing and cultural discovery, including gourmet food. "Andiamo," Italian for "Let's Go," is the answer to that dream.

For Jim, who is a U.S. Coast guard licensed captain with over 30 years' cruising and sailboat racing experience, that meant leaving the practice of international law with clients in Asia and Europe, to charter in the Caribbean. He is an avid fly fisherman and has equipped Andiamo with the latest equipment for fly fishing, spin casting, and deep-sea fishing. Jim's long-time interests also include travel, food and wine, scuba diving, astronomy, jogging, and hiking.

Your World Class Chef Jayne Taylor

Jayne owned and operated a highly successful catering business in Washington, D.C., where the Taylors lived for 20 years, serving prominent political figures and diplomats. She has been featured in several Washington Post articles and the Washingtonian Magazine, as one of the capital's premier caterers. 
Jayne specializes in international cuisine, an interest she acquired while living in Singapore, Libya, Italy, and France. While in Paris, she co-authored a bilingual cookbook with a Michelin-starred French chef, Chef Hubert, and she taught cooking classes at L'Ecole de Cuisine d'Hubert in Paris and on St. Barths. Jayne's passion for food and entertaining does not prevent her active participation in travel, sailing, fishing, and scuba diving. Jayne and Jim are fluent in French, conversant in Italian, and they speak some German.      

In any language, the Taylors are a good team and Andiamo the perfect combination of fun, cultural adventure, and fine dining.
