Lagoon 56ft - 2016

A3

Yacht description

When you first step onboard this luxury 56ft Lagoon catamaran A3, you will be super impressed by the panoramic windows, allowing you an unobstructed views of the tranquil bays and white sandy beaches of the BVI. Because the windows are upright as opposed to the normal slanted ones, the saloon area stays a lot cooler. The salon has comfortable seating that can accommodate a dinner for 10 or one person having a quick afternoon nap!

There are 3 spacious queen sized cabins and a guest cabin with bunk beds. The aft guests’ cabins are most comfortable, and whilst airy, each has their own air-conditioning controls for temperature control. Outside there is a large cockpit with easy water access from the stern. Up forward there is the usual trampolines, but this time they have added an awning so you can really enjoy the cool breeze whilst relaxing and not worry about burning.

Penny's personal opinion

Why book A3? – DIVING – This is a fantastic dive boat and first dive is included in the weekly rates. Add to this a great selection of water toys, gourmet food and a really fun crew and there’s a perfect week!

  • 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 we sailed along. Matt… well… the food was INCREDIBLE. The entire week’s menu was spectacular. His 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. Colleen 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.

  • 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 to others! Thank you for helping us find them… we could not have had a better fit! We absolutely loved our vacation!

  • 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 trip as so many things were top-notch! From the time of the greeting at the airport right through to the departure – every sail, every bite, every water excursion was perfection. As the owner of a luxury vacation rental firm, I could not fault a single experience (and believe me, that is a first!). I think it’s important to highlight the amount of time Colleen & Matt gave to our 12-year old son, Rhys. They never tired of going out with him on the dingy for an afternoon of water sports or a dive in and around some pretty spectacular locations. I can promise you, this is a trip my son will never forget, and it was due to the effort they put into ensuring he had a wonderful time.

    I could not end this note to you without commenting on Matt’s culinary skills. As you may know, Charleston is a big ‘foodie’ town and we’ve certainly enjoyed some amazing food over our 10-years in this beautiful city, but Matt’s food was some of the best we have ever experienced. Every meal was perfection! Not only did it look amazing, but every bite was also heavenly.

    Suffice it to say, we are already talking about when we can come back and spend time with Matt & Colleen on A3. Thank you a million times over for pair us with such a fantastic crew. We are missing them already.

  • 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.

    Matt is an extremely talented chef. I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the world and was impressed by every meal. We ate seafood caught from the boat at least three times. They describe themselves as a “foody boat” and we certainly agreed.

    Both Colleen and Matt worked hard for 16 hour days. I don’t know how they do it. The boat itself is top notch. That Lagoon 56 has everything and is very roomy. They also have it stocked with high quality linens, plenty of dive equipment, great bar, great music, etc.

    Matt and Colleen were wonderful! They made our dream vacation even better by all the ways they went above and beyond to see that our family had a wonderful time. Colleen made sure we visited the places we wanted to see. Matt made the most delicious food we have ever eaten, better than any 5 star restaurant. He made the most amazing specialty cocktails. The family loved getting up in the morning to see the theme of the day for the meals and drinks. Colleen was very informative about our questions about sailing and destinations. Matt and Colleen make a great team. It was our second trip with them and we hope to have another. The first one we didn’t take the adult kids. We had such a great time we wanted to take our adult kids for our 30th anniversary. They made it a special time for entire family.

    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.

    Having Stanley’s 4th birthday on the boat was special and they decorated the boat up very nicely and Thanksgiving was exceptional.

    I was having a ball because it turned out to be the event I hoped it would be and made wonderful memories for the entire family. Daddy got major props!! No drama, no stress, just what the doctor ordered.

    Typical for the weather, the wind was on the nose as we made our way east along the north side of St Thomas and St. John’s and was then non-existent as we sailed/motored west towards the end of the week. Oh well, thank God for engines. I did get to drive the boat some so I was very happy. We had a night sail/motor as well on a great evening. Could not have been better.
