Lagoon 560S2 Sailing Catamaran

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 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, and featuring clean modern lines and unstintingly elegant appointments, A3 is a yacht of unparalleled comfort and refinement.

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!
Captain Colleen Korona
Colleen Korona
Captain

Nationality: American

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.

Matt Proto
Chef / First Mate

Nationality: American

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.

A huge thank you!

We are back from our trip to the USVI. Just wanted to thank you for recommending Matt and Colleen to us. They were awesome. Beforehand, I didn’t realize how important getting the right crew would be - but after a week on the boat in tight quarters, I can now see how essential that is. We came away from the trip thinking we wouldn’t want to charter with anyone other than Matt & Colleen in the future! Matt’s food was unbelievable, and I loved the way Colleen encouraged my daughters. They were both so easy and enjoyable to be with. Also sailing around the USVI was great. Thanks for encouraging us to reconsider the BVI.

Remarkable vacation!

We had a remarkable vacation and attribute everyone’s satisfaction entirely to Matt and Colleen. We could not have had a better crew. Too many highlights to enumerate. The food was a high point for us all. Matt just kept those delicious, beautiful, varied meals coming and was very good about recognizing and remembering our likes and dislikes. We would go out with them again in a second. Not enough superlatives. I would note that both of them were particularly good about being totally calm in the water. Diving and snorkeling were made easy by these two confident, caring pros. Their teamwork in all phases of the trip is also noteworthy. They complimented each other perfectly. Complaints? The week was a little too short!
