This 56 ft crewed catamaran can put other charter yachts to shame, they are also generously supplied with light and air from the outside through uniquely designed, and strategically placed, hatches, windows, and portholes.

A3 comes fully equipped with a water maker and generator, run by their 2 full time crew ensuring a relaxing and worry-free vacation. Designed with rich honey-colored wood tones throughout,  featuring clean modern lines and unstintingly elegant appointments.   This is a BVI Based Yacht and crew

Crew Profile

William Garnier – Captain/Dive Instructor and Kim Stoklasa – Chef/Mate

William was born into a family of naval tradition and was taken to sea before he could see over the steering wheel. This early introduction to sailing meant a career on the high seas was always likely, and so it has proved as he gained RYA Yachtmaster accreditation and has skippered boats in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Kite-boarding, diving, kayaking, windsurfing, surfing are just a few of the activities William enjoys. A sailing trip solo around the Atlantic in a rather small boat is testament to his adventurous spirit. You can ask him about that or just read the book he wrote! His love of the sea is infectious and you will enjoy catching his relaxed island vibe. He loves to share his knowledge of the lesser known anchorages, private coves, and secluded beaches and will take you to visit and explore all the unique locations the Caribbean has to offer. As a PADI Dive Instructor he delights in certifying new divers, giving instruction and leading explorations into the tranquil underwater world of stunning reefs and wrecks.

Creative and fun-loving by nature, Kim’s skills in the galley reflect her personality. She delights in mixing healthy fresh local produce with international dishes learnt from a life
well travelled. On top of her German Baccalaureate, Kim has training in all aspects of food safety, hygiene and many allergies. She is expert at creating the perfect atmosphere for
guests on-board Invictus. Naturally at ease with people, Kim has managed high-end private and corporate events in cosmopolitan London, and worked with people of all ages as a sports instructor and animal behaviourist. Clearly not one to be type-cast, Kim is qualified on powerboats and sailing boats and can be relied upon to drive the dinghy for
wake-boarding, and is always on-hand to capture all your special vacation moments on film. Easy going and thoughtful, William and Kim encourage every guest to make full use of all A3 has to offer, and look forward to welcoming you aboard.

Testimonials

We had the most AMAZING experience!
One expects their crew to be competent and knowledgeable but William and Kim were
leagues above our expectations. Beyond their exceptional professionalism, we found them
to be friendly, engaging, intelligent and versed in dozens of topics and interests. They
stunned our family with their talents and we found them to be highly inspirational and
encouraging for us to further develop some new-found interests we discovered while
onboard.
William and Kim lovingly maintain and care for the yacht. It is tastefully appointed. We
loved the trampoline area with the beanbags and seating where we could enjoy the wind,
water and sailing!
Kim’s culinary abilities rival that of any fine restaurant chef. There was not one thing that
wasn’t to our liking and I think she had the keen ability to quickly dial-in to our preferences
and tastes and matched them flawlessly. She graciously shared tips and recipes as well.
The food was simply spectacular.
Our itinerary was flexible based on our interests and conditions. We actually liked that
each day was a little bit of a surprise with new adventures. We were extremely pleased
that William was willing to change up our schedule a bit to accommodate an extra
unplanned day of kiteboarding.
We would have never found this charter without the aid of your website. William and Kim
speak highly of your company and the service you provide- we couldn’t agree more. We
liked the uniformity in presenting the charter options so that we could evenly and
consistently compare options. We will definitely highly recommend your website to our
friends and family.

Late January, 2018, guests aboard catamaran INVICTUS with WILLIAM & KIM

William and Kim,
As we bid adieu to our lovely hosts
We remember the things we loved the most
A beautiful boat
Cutting through a raucous sea
Enclosed in shelter all four a lee
And then returns the Caribbean sun
Magnificent islands will not be outdone
Craggy rocks shine in bright blue sky
Azure seas bring the tides reply
Heavens open to moonlight night
Stars gaze down upon sandy bight
Much has been lost yet much to gain
As the wind swept islands rise again

Kim and Will, thanks for a wonderful week. Our doors are always open to you on Cape
Cod . Good luck with your new adventures. Susan, Eric, Denise and Tim

2017/2018 New Years guests on INVICTUS with WILLIAM & KIM wrote:
After our disastrous sail around Australia I never thought I’d see my family get on another sail boat. I was wrong – and lucky that the next one happened to be Invictus. We had a great week and an amazing drunken stumble into the new year. Thanks for always making
sure our glasses were always full and our bellies even more so. Although we’ll still be sunbathing in California, we won’t have your amazing stories and company to make the time fly by. Your hospitality meant the world to us.
With Love, The Clark Family!
