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 ex...

December 2021

The trip was absolutely AMAZING! I'm not even sure there are truly enough wonderful words or space to describe how much fun we had and how fabulous Matt and Colleen were. This is the first time we have ever lived on a boat for any kind of vacation. The USVI was beautiful. Colleen is full of interesting tidbits bits about the islands and gave us all kinds of neat recommendations and information as ...

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 ...

A3 is a 10 out of 10! The catamaran was beautiful and a good size, had all the amenities needed, and had great shaded seating areas for all 6 people in our group. The crew is top-notch. Captain Colleen is one of the hardest working women I know and was so easy going and delightful to be around. Chief Matt’s food and drinks were off the charts. You can never go wrong recommending this boat and crew...

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.

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.
