August 11, 2008 The European Boat Show season approaches, and we’re beginning to catch the first glimpses of the innovative new luxury yacht designs – one of the first to declare its hand is Lazzara Yachts which will introduce the US$8.5 million LSX Ninety Two, a completely redesigned follow-up to its acclaimed LSX Seventy Five. Scheduled to launch Fall 2008, the spacious LSX 92 features an expansive flybridge, a private water-level terrace off the master stateroom, a retractable aft sun deck shade, and Quad Volvo Penta Quad IPS II drive units. One of the most unique features of the 92 is the generous aft section that includes a large teak swim platform with a garage for toys that converts into a shaded area suitable for entertaining.
“The LSX Ninety Two is the big sibling of the Seventy Five,” admits Dick Lazzara, the President and cofounder of Lazzara Yachts. However, he ensures, “she is, without reservation, a totally different yacht; one that will explore and achieve new dimensions of functionality, comfort and performance.”
Lazzara’s 92 features three staterooms plus a master, and crew quarters for two with an optional third bed. The layout also includes Lazzara’s trademark atrium galley. Additionally, those who purchase the yacht will have choices of Lazzara’s signature woodwork in new, contemporary veneers and finishes. Pricing for the new LSX Ninety Two will be between US$8 million and US$9 million depending on the specification.
The cutting_edge 75 was launched in October 2006, and with all new Volvo IPS drives, joystick control and a sleek and elegant design, it immediately became highly acclaimed and widely published. The legacy of innovation through cutting edge rapid prototype technologies won the LSX 75 design team several awards, including the most innovative yacht in its class by Yachts International at the 2007 Cannes International Boat Show.
