A family that we booked aboard 56' Catamaran A3 for New Years 2017/2018 said: We had a great time. We were so sad when the time ended and we had to depart.

Reviews from our Carefree Clients

A family that we booked aboard A3 for Thanksgiving 2022 said:

Hi Lynne,

We were delighted with the boat and the crew, and we really appreciate your help in making that match. I think this was a peak experience for all of us, despite a few complications like Covid and a bit of seasickness. We had no idea how much fun our family has in the water, between sailing, scuba, snorkeling, and swimming.

Colleen was a very capable captain who listened to our needs, but also made very creative suggestions to adapt to changing circumstances (e.g., weather, covid). We felt very safe and comfortable under her leadership, and she is also a wonderful storyteller. We also thoroughly enjoyed the gourmet meals that Matt prepared, and in keeping with Thanksgiving tradition, put on a few pounds in the process. Matt also did a great job in leading our divers; this included giving two of our party a resort diving course, and both were quite comfortable in the water by the end of that process.

We would highly recommend your services, as well as Colleen and Matt on A3. Please do sign me up for the charter e-newsletter.

Best wishes,

Josh S., Virginia

A family group that we booked aboard Colleen and Matt's previous 46' Catamaran in July 2020 said:

Lynne,

The charter was absolutely fantastic! I can not even put into words how great Colleen and Matt are! We felt like we had been friends for years after just a few hours.

Colleen - She is an exceptional Captain who cares about her boat, crew, and guest. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and safe! So many other positives but too many to list.

Matt - WOW! This group has traveled all across the globe and had some of the best cuisine in the biggest cities. What Matt prepared was, honestly, beyond words. His menu was well thought out and kept us guessing. He thought out of the box and paired items we never even dreamed of. We loved how each day sent us to a different part of the world.

We will definitely be booking with you again and traveling along with Colleen and Matt aboard whatever vessel they are on. Thank you for everything you did to help us have the perfect vacation! I can not thank you enough. You have earned several new clients. And we have already spread the news about how great it was!

Crew

Capt. 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
