Catamaran A3 Overview

We are extremely proud and excited to present to you the new 2017 Lagoon 560 named Adeia III, A3. This yacht sets new benchmarks in sophistication, elegance, luxury, and performance.

A3 has three en-suite Queen guest cabins including a master suite with direct access to the cockpit, one twin bunk cabin suitable for small kids, and some very nice upgrades for the 560 including softer cushions, a full Bimini on the flybridge with teak decking, Sunbrella throw cushions, and of course, everything is brand new!

From a morning of fun on a secluded beach, to an exhilarating day sailing on open water, to an elegant dinner aboard, A3 offers it all.

Even at her maximum carrying capacity of eight guests, plus two crew, the catamaran 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.

Designed with rich honey-colored wood tones throughout and featuring clean modern lines and unstintingly elegant appointments, A3 is a catamaran of unparalleled comfort and refinement.

Join A3 and her excellent crew sailing the Caribbean for an exciting, decadent yacht vacation.

Meet the Crew

Colleen & Matt

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...read more

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.

Reviews for Colleen & Matt aboard previous yachts:

Colleen and Matt were extremely professional and friendly. They were a lot of fun too. They took great care of us but they also took a lot of pride in the yacht, which we appreciated. They had all kinds of information and stories about the areas we visited and made recommendations for excursions, restaurants, shopping and hikes.

Colleen was an excellent captain and always went out of her way to ensure we had the best mooring spots and avoided cruise ship crowds.

Matt was very accommodating with our group of advanced divers and had plenty of equipment on board for us to use.

They were always asking if we needed anything, and at the end of the trip they planned a little surprise party for our 20th anniversary and our friend's birthday, complete with decorations, which was really nice. One night they even hosted a movie night complete with popcorn.

Firefly was very clean, comfortable and well ventilated. We appreciated having a shower/head in each room. The rooms were a great size and the beds were comfortable. The colors were really bright and fun which was beautiful when we sailed and they had comfortable bean bags on the trampoline. We booked this yacht because of the SCUBA tanks on board. Many boats did not have that. We enjoyed the transparent kayak, the lily pad and the paddle boards too.

Yes. The food was plentiful and exceeded our expectations and the presentation was lovely. Each day we had a menu with a "mood of the day" theme. That was really fun. Matt went out of his way to make special accommodations for specific requests. He made his own ice cream and it was fantastic. The bar was also very well stocked with everything we requested and some additional items we did not request but were pleased we could try like the local flavored rums and a themed cocktail each day.

Our favorites were the natural attractions such as trails on St. John (Annaberg) and the Baths on Virgin Gorda and the tour to Hog Heaven for the views. The two wreck dives (Rhone and Kodiak Queen) were really fun as was the dive near Scrub Island (I think it was the Dogs) because we saw the most wildlife there.
