The sailboat Zephyr offers a very original solution for those who want to discover from close the amazing old city centre, just a few steps away from the main cultural attractions in town, monuments, gardens, theatres, bars and restaurants. Enjoy!
The boat is easily accessible from the dock at the marina, by using a rubber ladder placed at the bow. It is not really advisable for small children or for people having mobility issues. In fact the access aboard requires a minimum of agility!
It is not advisable to bring along too much (and not too large) baggage.
•Please use a plastic bag, inside the little door where the toilet brush is located, to throw paper, tissues, tampons, ear-sticks, etc.
•Flush the toilet long enough to bring all the dirty water out of board (approximately 15 sec.). You can you is as long as you want, because it is seawater.
•Always keep both water taps closed when not in use!
•Please pay attention with mixing hot water, since it can be very hot and it arrives slowly after using the tap mixer.
•Use the shower pump (black button on top left of the washbasin to empty the water on the ground after shower.
•Control electricity panel, second switch from left.
•We suggest to keep the boiler off at all times. About 30 minutes before having a shower, put the boiler on (if the switch goes down while warming up, just put it up again).
The boat is obviously not directly connected to the water system. The water is stored on board in 2 big tanks and the water reserve might finish, if you use too much water or take too long showers.
You will notice when it is almost over, because of the lower pressure and the water pump remaining on, when all the taps are closed. In case you need to fill up the tanks please follow carefully the instructions below:
1. Put first the switch of the water pump off (“AUTOCLAVE” in the switchboard – black with red switches - behind the radar display).
2. Fill the water tank* from pier by using the yellow hose.
* PLEASE PAY ATTENTION: USE ONLY THE WATER HOLE IN THE BACK OF THE BOAT (RIGHT SIDE LOOKING AT THE BOW). BE CAREFULL NOT TO USE THE DIESEL TANK TO FILL WATER!!!!
3.Put the switch of the water pump back up in the switchboard (see 1)
Only 2 fire plates work properly (2nd and 4th starting from the left). The other 2 do not keep the flame on. If you feel more comfortable, you can close the gas bottle form inside by using the gas throttle on the left storage shelf in front of the fire plates.
KEYS AND VARIOUS
•Use only the padlock to close the boat when going out. It is not necessary to use the lock in the little door.
•Close well the hatches and the portholes, especially if you think it might rain.
•You need the key of the main gate to get out of the mooring. When checking out of the sailboat do not forget to open the gate first and then come back to put the keys inside and close the boat with the padlock.
Please feel free to ask us for any questions you might have. I wish you a pleasant stay on board of sail boat Zephyr!
In case of need please call or text Mario at (phone number hidden)

Hi there, I'am Mario, I'm Italian, married with a Dutch woman and with 3 lovely children. I work in the tourism sector since more than 10 years now, managing my own travel organization based in then Netherlands. For work I live between Amsterdam and Sicily, my birth place and main destination of the tailor made tours I organize for my guests.
In Amsterdam I have my first listing of a cozy houseboat in one the central canals of the city; in Sicily I have my second listing of a Boat & Breakfat on a charming 35 ft sailboat, moored at the historical harbor of Palermo.
The 3rd listing is actually the place where my family lives all year round, except during summer. We like to think that some nice family with kids will want to enjoy our apartment when we are away.
Come and enjoy your time in Amsterdam in a very original and authentic way. The city needs no presentation for its beauty, but the vision from the water is fantastic and the atmosphere unique, any season of the year! We love to share it and we look forward to have you as guests!
If you are heading more to the south and want to discover Palermo, one of the most popular mediterranean cities, consider this unique experience of spending a few days on a charming, romantic and cozy sailboat, moored just a few steps away from the main touristic, cultural and authentic spots the historical centre of Palermo has to offer.
Only for short period of times, mostly during the summer, our large family apartment, located right in the middle of the historical centre of the city is available for nice families who want to experince how is to live in Palermo as a local.
Either north or south I guarantee you a very warm welcome and support to discover the places where I live! Hope to meet you soon in person!
