Zolna Yachts Expands to Diversify It’s Charter Fleet.

November 7, 2016 in Vacations by cipcipTrip

Over the last 10 years, the Zolna’s, a husband and wife team, have built a multi-faceted yacht business that incorporates yacht charters, lodging, management and brokerage. They offer the largest variety of privately owned charter yachts and houseboats in San Diego.

Women play a vital role in this yacht company. Shari, the owner, is a licensed captain and has one other female captain on call, as well as her daughter Annabelle who is a first mate. “Our customers love the idea that a feminine girly-girl like myself has a captain’s license,” said Shari. “Personally, I prefer to crew on our charters. I really enjoy helping to set the pace and tone of our wide variety of parties and family gatherings. But just wait until you meet Captain Julie! She’s a stunning blonde, nice as they come, and is one Rock Star driver. There isn’t a tanker on the sea that this gal couldn’t handle with skill and grace.”

Zolna’s fleet consists of a 46ft Meridian 411 motor yacht, a 53ft Carver Voyager motor yacht and a 60ft Sunseeker Predator motor yacht. Pricing for a 3 hour harbor cruise starts at $1,100 and goes up to $1,800 for these vessels that are licensed for up to 12 passengers. The houseboat is stationary, used for dockside lodging only.

Coming soon to the fleet, is a 73ft Bonner Navigator luxury motor yacht that is currently under reconstruction. “There is nothing like this vessel in all of San Diego,” said Amos Zolna. “This yacht will be Coast Guard Certifed for 49 passengers. We’re having it professionally designed, so it will have a stunning contemporary feel, a bar, and even a jacuzzi with changing cabanas on the top deck.” Zolna is aiming for February 2017 for a launch date.

Zolna Yachts have served southern CA for 10 years, and all their vessels are located on Harbor Island.

The Zolna’s clients have offered up 5-star ratings and reviews found on Google, Facebook, Yelp, Trip Advisor, and more. Awards include “Top Vacation Rental in San Diego” by Flip Key, 2 Navy Superior Civilian Service medals, as well as praise by several NFL superstars and even members of the musical pop boy’s band, “One Direction.”
