-The toilet is very comfy and the kitchen is just like home, equipped with all necessary cooking utensils.
The boat is moored at Marina d'Arechi Port Village, in the East area of the town of Salerno, a new structure capable of offering to the boat-guests a high quality standard services, both at sea and ashore. Very close to the amazing Amalfi Coast (in italian: Costiera Amalfitana), Capri and Cilento region.

The neighborhood is worldwide known and very famous.
Amalfi, Positano, Capri are only three examples of fantastic places to visit, especially from the sea !
And … what about Sorrento few miles further ? Or Ischia and Procida ?
On the other side there is the uncontaminated Cilento coast, with fantastic harbors and bays to stay and villages to visit.
The olden history is in each stone and the food is always fantastic. You can find enjoyable and salubrious Mediterranean flavours everywhere. Mozzarella, organic tomatoes and fresh basil; dressed only with salt and few drops of extra-virgin olive oil! What can you desire more ? Suggested wine: Greco di Tufo, made from white grapes coming from the ancient Greeks.
Suggestion of the month: sailing along the unforgettable coast from Amalfi to Positano, circumnavigating the mythic archipelago of Li Galli (was indicated by Omero as Siren Rock in the Odyssey and - more recently - owned by the very famous dancer Rudolf Nureyev), spend the night at the little bay of Recommone(rather at the tip of Sorrento Peninsula) where you can have dinner/lunch at the excellent restaurant “La Conca del Sogno”.
Other things to note
Bad weather ? Don’t worry, the Skipper is available for guiding you in historic/culinary tours by car or train/bus, suggesting very special destinations not far from the boat.
We offer a “boat-renting a la carte", at you choice you can:
- spend a week at sea in an amazing cruise
- use the boat as a base to explore the Amalfi coast by land and having one or two days out sailing
- having sailing coaching
- any combination of the above proposals
Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah is not a charter boat, she is private. Therefore during the sailing or mooring outside Marina d'Arechi, Owner/Skipper will be on board. Please ask for skipper fee in your period.
