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, A3 is roomy enough for all her guests to come together for a sumptuous evening meal, or to find privacy in smaller groups—either 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. And, to a degree that puts other charter yachts to shame, they are also generou...

Crew

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 exp...

Thanksgiving 2020 - Broker provided comments

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The boat was fantastic, the weather was great and the crew were superb. Colleen was a great captain and really took to us, and especially our grandkids. She was the perfect fit for our family as was Matt. Matt proved to be a superb chef and a wonderful divemaster. We could not stop talking about his food, from the morning to the last dessert at night.

WOW, WOW, WOW!! I just do not have enough adjectives to describe how fantastic our time has been with Matt and Colleen aboard the A3 these past six days. As I write, we are en-route to our hotel for the final night of our holiday, and as we reflect back on our time, we are all so sad to be leaving such a fabulous crew and the comfort of A3. I struggle a little to identify the best part of this ...

Frankly, I don’t know if there are enough good words to describe the experience. Several of our co-passengers thought it was the best vacation they ever had.

The crew is ideal. Captain Colleen is a highly professional and competent captain. The boat was spotless and she kept us on track and organized for the entire trip. She made us very comfortable at all times. The perfect captain.
