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 Point Loma

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.

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!

Neat way to experience San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Even though it's a small shower and bathroom. It's a really neat hotel concept. All the while being centrally located in the heart of San Diego. Stay here and break the normal hotel room experience. The beds and staterooms were very comfortable for sleeping and the main galley was plenty of space for 2-4 people. Thanks for the neat experience!

Very enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Amos was a very gracious host and communicated well throughout the booking and check-in process. He explained all of the intricacies of the yacht and was available for any questions we might have. I do have to say that it was extremely relaxing and the harbor was as smooth as glass. If you are worried about sleeping through movement on the water--don't be. I would definitely do this again if I visit San DIego in the future.

Perfect for Conference Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

A colleague and I attended a conference at the Sheraton on Harbor Island in February. We like to have some distance from the actual conference hotel, so we looked around for alternative places to stay. I stumbled upon Mauna Aloha and inquired. Amos responded almost immediately and even called to make sure I got through the reservation process. He was perfectly clear in how to communicate with him when we arrived. We flew to San Diego on February 17th. I called Amos to tell him we had landed and he drove to the airport to get us! Who does that?

We stayed on the Mauna Aloha for four nights. The beds were so comfy and the rooms were perfect. We spent a lot of time on deck sitting at the table chatting and enjoying the harbor. There were plenty of hotels and a little market nearby, and taxis to go anyplace were regularly driving down Harbor Drive. The yacht stay was perfect! Word got out at the conference that we were staying on a yacht. People were so jealous. When I told them the yacht was less expensive than a sterile hotel room at the Sheraton, they were convinced. I hope Amos and Shari gets lots of reservations for their boats in the future. I highly recommend this fun place to lodge.

Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed aboard the Ohana Pacific for three nights to celebrate the 65th birthdays of three of the ladies. The accommodations were great and being on the water was so relaxing! Amos and Shari were easy to work with and the two hour cruise of the harbor area was a highlight! It was truly a unique way to celebrate the birthdays! It is a vacation all should consider for that special occasion.
