Melanie Nel

Caribbean Author

Born in Germany, Mel grew up on the beautiful island of Madeira, Portugal. After her studies in Lisbon she decided to go travelling, to explore the world. Being multilingual and fluent in English, the world truly was her oyster!

Mel worked in hospitality on a private island in the British Virgin Islands, as a yacht stewardess based in the MED, and as a qualified Dive Instructor for a Dive School in Roatan, Honduras.  The ocean and in the water is where Mel feels most comfortable, “You could say it’s my happy place.” 

She found ‘her home’ 5 years ago in Sint Maarten, where she lives with her husband and young family. 
Together they run a charter business offering day trips around the island and race charters, on a racing boat, Sail Arawak.

Mel joins the SSG team with energy and enthusiasm, and a deep understanding of yachting and the superyacht industry in the Caribbean.
