About the property

In the mean time, we have the Ohana Pacific, VRBO listing133246 and the Hula Kai VRBO listing 850656, yachts for lodging and charter as well as a houseboat VRBO listing 731628, that is perfect for lodging.

Come and stay with Zolna Yachts! We call this yacht the "Manu Aloha".

Zolna Yachts provides a unique vacation like no where else. This 60 foot Sunseeker Predator yacht is docked in a private and secured marina on Harbor Island.

The Manu Aloha can sleep 4 overnight guests. **There is an additional minimal charge of $39 for additional guests over 2.

Luxury is extended throughout with a large main deck area providing ample space for dining and entertainment. Large sun pads are positioned fore and aft, and the super cool garage provides ample storage for our dinghy. Down below is the salon and 2 guest cabins that can sleep 4 and all offer a typically high level of comfort and feature its own entertainment systems and air conditioning. There are 2 full bathrooms, each with showers, and the galley is fully equipped with a refrigerator, stove, microwave and coffee maker.

The marina is gated for security and has it's own sparkling swimming pool and a dockside deli. She is docked securely in a well protected area so there is very little, if any, movement.

**This yacht is undergoing engine work so there are no cruises on this yacht for now. You may reserve a private cruise on one of our other awesome yachts if you like.

About Amos Zolna

Let us introduce ourselves. We are Amos & Shari and we moved from New York City to San Diego in 1995. We have a beautiful teenage daughter, Annabelle, who keeps us on our toes.

Amos and I instantly fell in love with everything this magnificent city has to offer. From the sea, to the mountains, to the desert wildflower explosions, this is so much more than a city. Then to discover the Gas Lamp District, Little Italy, and a multitude of cultural venues and events, we knew this was the place for us.

It was easy to acclimate to San Diego’s great year round climate, and were especially drawn to it’s unique coastal way of life. After many years of owning vacation rental properties on the island of Maui, Amos came up with the idea to combine our knowledge of the vacation rental business with our passion for boating. And so we did. In March of 2007 we opened Zolna Yachts, a unique San Diego business offering overnight accommodations aboard a yacht. Soon after, we became United States Coast Guard Captains and yacht brokers.

This yachting business has evolved into a full service Yacht Company that now offers our customers a fantastic fleet of privately owned yachts for overnight lodging and charter. We are now the go-to company in San Diego for private charters, being recommended by the San Diego Concierge Association and a network of businesses all over Southern California.

Thank you for checking out one of the most unique highly rated Vacation Rental properties in San Diego!

Why Amos Zolna chose Midway District

You're looking for something unique and awesome. Why choose the same old thing? Stay on a yacht in a prime location on the water, not simply looking at the water from a stuffy hotel room or condo. Surround yourself with boats, water, sea life, and gorgeous sunsets. And, we're just minutes from the San Diego Airport, attractions and down town.

What makes this yacht unique

What makes Zolna Yachts so unique is that you can charter one of our yachts for a professional and unforgettable San Diego Bay cruise and stay aboard as no other vacation rental accommodation can provide. Typically, you'll find either one or the other. We do it all!! We specialize in personalized cruises for up to 12 guests and offer you the luxury of a live-a-board yacht.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience. The owner was so nice and explained how to use everything on the boat. He left nothing out and is very detailed oriented - they have thought of everything ... I didn't know what to expect but he definately put me at ease!

Nice boat, good location, had a great time and the host was very helpful.

  • 5 of 5

We had fun and enjoyed being on the boat. Fun to sit on the front and watch the sunset.

Coffee maker was an issue but other than that, it was great.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brad for the nice review. The coffee maker is brand new, a Keurig from Bed Bath and Beyond, so should be perfect for the amount it cost. I will return it and have a new coffee maker this week. I wish I new while you were here and I would have replaced it immediately for you. Hope to see you back soon. Shari & Amos Zolna Zolna Yachts

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Came down to San Diego for the Depeche Mode concert and wanted to stay the weekend at some place else besides the sterile boring hotel room. Sunset views were awesome! It was very clean and was just what we needed for a weekend getaway! Will be back for sure!

Private relaxing paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay on the Manu Aloha. This was a perfect base for us to enjoy the sights and sounds of San Diego. We were there for 7 days and looked forward to coming back to the boat each and everytime. Staying on the boat was our 2nd best highlight of our San Diego experience only second because our #1 was watching our son graduate from MCRD San Diego as a US Marine. Next time we're in San Diego we will definitely want to stay with Amos and his crew on any of their beautiful properties. Special thank you to Amos and Sherri for quickly getting us a new coffee maker asap when the one on the boat quit working. Nothing quite like drinking your coffee on deck in this superior setting first thing in the morning. Thank you Sherri and Amos!

Owner's Response: Thank you Brandon & Monica for this nice review of your stay aboard the Manu Aloha yacht, our 60 ft. Sunseeker Predator. Congratulations on your son's graduation. You must be so proud of him. It was no trouble replacing the coffee machine. Our only goal is to make our guests as happy and comfortable as possible. Hope to see you soon. Hoorah!!

Unique option with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

After canceling 2 vacations because of wildfires and hurricane evacuations, I found this yacht rental available and we took a chance. The owners were great about working with us last minute. We booked on Thursday night and were enjoying the sunset Sunday night. We are normally campers and wilderness fans, so we had no idea what to expect.

I think if I had to do it again, 3-5 nights would have been better for us than 8. At day 5, the novelty had worn off and I just wanted a full-sized shower and King bed. The yacht actually had plenty of living space and all the upgrades. Unfortunately there was no internet access available that you could connect to from the boat. Being on vacation, I was constantly looking things up and I ended up just running through my data and absorbing the overage costs.

The yacht was parked in a good slip with great sunset and sunrise views. The neighbors were very nice and friendly. In general, despite the amount of traffic going in and out, it was always very peaceful. One morning I even saw a seal out in front of the boat. I also loved the double fridges!

The marina was located in a great spot! It was convenient to the interstate, Liberty Station, and all the local neighborhoods. The views on the other side of the road were beautiful and there were always people out walking and enjoying the night. Coasterra is my #1 recommendation of restaurants in the area.

In general, we enjoyed our last minute vacation option. I think we aren't the best yacht people, but for 8 days we made it all work. The comfy spot on the front was perfect for meditation sessions and at night, we enjoyed beverages out back watching the birds try and hunt fish. If you have a few days in San Diego, I'd recommend ditching the hotel/condo and trying something new!
