Your Crew

CAPTAIN COLLEEN & CHEF/MATE MATT

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 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.

WE LOVE KIDS! Aboard Yacht A3, we try to create a fun and safe environment for families to enjoy. 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 an extensive collection of games for all ages and are always up for the challenge. We have thousands of movies to choose from that can be viewed in the outdoor theater, and of course, can be enjoyed with the flavored 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 YACHT A3 help make it a memorable one!

You Are Incredible!

You are incredible!!
You made this trip so wonderful for all of us from good morning muffins, eggs, biscuits and gravy and ok so much more, to all of the mouth-watering meals you made with all of us in mind. You are so thoughtful, and we are all grateful to call you family. These moments are what make us remember what this life is all about. I'm grateful to share this with you and with our family.

Truly Amazing

Thank you so much for everything. We all had a wonderful time spending the week with you. None of us wanted to leave but unfortunately all good things must come to an end. We appreciate all the work you've put in, the cooking, cleaning, diving and all the dinghy trips. it was truly amazing.

We wish you all the best for the future!

I Will Remember This Trip Forever

This was truly one of the best vacations me & David have ever had. It was such a treat to be wined and dined daily. The food & drinks were amazing. I love trying new dishes and you did not disappoint. It was so nice to have someone else plan our daily activities. Everything we did was so much fun! I will remember this trip forever.
Thanks for accommodating my dislike of fish. Your substituting was perfect. Will miss you Guys!

Best Trip Ever!

We had the best trip trip EVER!!  Can’t thank you enough for hooking us up with A3.  From the very beginning the captain anticipated our every need and the chef’s culinary expertise was amazing!  They were professional and fit in with us from the very start.  Very hard to leave as they had become a part of our family.

A3 was extremely comfortable.  The boat was impeccably clean and well maintained.  We had plenty of room for the whole family.  Cabins were great, even the bunks the girls slept in.  Most of us spent our time on the upper Fly Deck where we could lounge with a beverage while enjoying the Caribbean breezes.

Exceeded Our Highest Expectations

Thank you for a totally first-class experience! I thought it might be hard to replicate the magic we felt on our first charter, but you two exceeded our highest expectations! Keep the island just like they are now until we return for our next trip! We will hopefully see you again soon!

 by Charter Guests/ Feb 2023
Best Trip Ever

The best trip ever, saw the most beautiful beaches, landscape, fish & coral. The best food & meals from Chef & the awesome Captain. They must be the best BVI offers, knowledgeable, safety, conscious and fun! Thank you so much for this land lover having one of the best lifetime experiences!

Just...well...awesome!

I've been wanting to do a catamaran cruise with our very good friends for a decade. I built it up so much in my mind I was afraid I was going to be a bit disappointed. In short, I wasn't. In fact, it exceeded my expectations.

You definitely need to go with people you want to spend time with and share in the many really cool moments that happen on a vacation like this. What I didn't think about was the critical role the crew play because for one week they basically become part of your family. The crew, by the end of the cruise, they were family indeed. We literally wanted to adopt them both. I've never met a more capable captain and person. She's smart, personable, adventurous, fearless and takes great pride in her boat and service. The chef was, how do I put it...hilarious. His personal skills are second to none. He added some much to our fun, our conversations and was an excellent chef and sailor as well. The two of them made a fantastic team. I'll definitely go on another cruise and when I do I'll be sure to request them!

Incredible!

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 the crew were. This is the first time we have ever lived on a boat for any kind of vacation. The USVI was beautiful. The crew is full of interesting tidbits bits about the islands and gave us all kinds of neat recommendations and information as we sailed along. &....well...the food was INCREDIBLE. The entire weeks menu was spectacular. The cooking skills are pretty awesome. The presentation of the food was beautiful as well. Thanks to him, I gained a good bit of weight on our trip. They were both so very gracious. They decorated for my birthday and made it very special. Then the very next day had Christmas decor up. The weather was beautiful. We so enjoyed our time with some of our friends who vacationed with us. They asked us at the end of the trip what our highs and lows were to this trip. I honestly could not think of any lows. Definitely one of our top 3 best relaxing vacations ever. They were both very accommodating. If we can swing it, we would definitely like to do another trip with them."

10 Out Of 10

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. The captain is one of the hardest working women I know and was so easy going and delightful to be around. The chef’s food and drinks were off the charts. You can never go wrong recommending this boat and crew to others! Thank you for helping us find them….we could not have had a better fit! We absolutely loved our vacation!"
