Yacht Description

A3, a crewed charter yacht,  is the 2018 Winner Best Multihull under 57ft in the Annual BVI Charter Yacht Show.

Even at her maximum carrying capacity of eight guests, plus two crew, this luxury yacht is roomy enough for all her guests to come together for a sumptuous evening meal.  If they want to be private they can go forward on the deck seating area, in the spacious cockpit, in the bright and open salon, or up on the flybridge with the pilot.

The four spacious guest cabins (3 with queen-sized beds, and one with single-sized bunk beds) come with en-suite heads and showers, fans, and private A/C controls.  Memory foam mattress toppers on all berths for guests comfort.

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.

WE LOVE KIDS! Onboard A3, we try to create a fun and safe environment for families to enjoy. We offer a wide variety of activities geared towards keeping a younger audience entertained, even when the weather is not ideal. In the galley, kids have an opportunity to get some hands on culinary training, making cookies, fresh pasta, ice cream, or anything else that might spark their interest. In the salon, we have have an extensive collection of games for all ages, and are always up for challenge. We have thousands of movies to choose from that can be viewed on the outdoor theater, and of course can be enjoyed with the flavor popcorn of your choosing. In the water, we have plenty of toys, including tubes and skis that can be pulled behind the dinghy, as well as scuba and snorkel gear for all ages. If celebrations are your thing, come on down! We love doing birthday parties, holidays, anniversaries, or any other reason you can think of to throw a party! So if you’re thinking of bringing the family on vacation, let A3 help make it a memorable one!

Crew Profile

CAPTAIN: Colleen Korona
Colleen was born and raised in Florida, where she grew up playing on the water. She bought her first sailboat when she was 24 years old, decided to live on it and then sailed it to the Bahamas. Colleen stepped out of the boating world for a while and managed a mental health office with 10 doctors for several years before moving on to working at a nuclear brain-imaging facility. Then the recession came, and she was unemployed. It didn’t take much prodding to head back out on the ocean and do some more sailing. She literally sold almost everything, packed the rest up and spent the next year sailing the East coast and exploring the cruising grounds from Florida to Rhode Island. There happened to be a group of boats heading to the Caribbean in Virginia and she thought, “What the heck! Let’s check it out and head to the Caribbean!” 14 days later they arrived in Tortola, BVI. She spent another year playing, exploring and sailing down to Trinidad, and then the money ran out. Colleen started to pick up jobs on charter boats here and there to have some money in her pocket. Over the next few years, Colleen worked as a first mate on a tall ship and sailing day-charter boats, as well as a stewardess and deckhand on a trimaran and crew on mega yachts in New England. But nothing beats working in the Caribbean! Colleen then got her captain’s license, and now feels very fortunate to have a great office at sea where she can share the beautiful place with guests.

CHEF/FIRST MATE: Matt Proto
Matt has been in the customer-service industry for the past 25 years. His career as a professional chef has lead him to the Caribbean where he now uses his culinary skills to create the perfect onboard dining experience for guests. He draws from a wide range of experience to deliver a broad spectrum of flavors and genres, keeping each new day full of fresh ideas. Matt grew up in Florida and has spent most of his life either in or on the water, and he’s been an avid scuba diver since 2006. In 2012, he got rid of everything except for one suitcase full of clothes and started doing seasonal work as a traveling chef. After living in Hawaii, Alaska and Cozumel, he found himself in St. Thomas working in a food truck on the beach when a friend approached him with a job offer as a chef on a charter boat. This is where he met Colleen and discovered the perfect gig. Since then, Matt has combined his love of food with his love of the ocean to create the perfect charter for more than just a vacation experience—but a passion for life and nature, and the desire to share those things with like-minded individuals. Matt is a PADI Dive Instructor and will be happy to show you the beautiful underwater world of the Virgin Islands.

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

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!
