  1. Lazzara 84' Motoryacht
    A Medhattan Marvel!

    by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy​

    Lazzara, after half a century of opening new vistas for yachting,
    designing yachts that please American owners, has come up with an
    approach sure to make European builders a bit edgy. The latest strategy
    is going after the International Euro market as well as Central and
    South American buyers, with innovations certain to be well received
    by a world-wide audience.​

    The look that has defined Lazzara is immediately manifest here; multiple tear-drop windows and smooth contours plus a moderate flair at the bow... truly international styling. The ship, cleaving a swift path through choppy seas, looks and feels ready to vault into graceful flight, she rides so lightly smooth and steady. Her airy top deck, designed like a miniature party palace, offers its face to the sun, while even at speed, the wind is sheered away as the yacht speeds quietly on its way. Those are two of the qualities Brad Lazzara has initiated to give Mediterranean appeal. In the Med, the sun is not so overbearing as it can be in Florida and the Carib; even so, there is a top deck extension to provide shade for the California deck just below. *Note that there is also a Cabriolet Skylounge 840 configuration that has a fully enclosed flybridge with integrated hardtop with glass windows all around.
  2. A hydraulic davit on the starboard side with telescopic and rotation capabilites uses remote controls to launch the tender – carried, not on the flybridge but on the swim platform. The 84's custom hydraulic swim/dive platform provides access to the captain and crew quarters, as well as its Novurania RIB tender sporting a 50-hp Yamaha 4-stroke to help you explore those mysterious, isolated coves you spotted with binocs.
  3. The peninsula-shaped bar setup hosts three swivel stools, a Corian countertop, plus sink, electric grill, and refrigerator/icemaker. Outdoor seating groups are split into port and starboard sections with separate tables. Aiding and abetting the festivities are full stereo sound systems, cleverly hidden from view, that amplify a spacious Jacuzzi pool for total relaxation. A central helm chair faces the steering console with a bench pedestal to port. And finally, the 84's swept back, small signature radar arch houses electronics, radar, lighting, horns and nav lights... leaving little in the way of rays.
  4. In this overhead aerial of the bow, the Euro touch is immediately evident with dual hooks and winches; perfect for Med-style anchoring. A sun-worshippers dream lounge is recessed into the deck house with 270-degree padding. Notice the cleats that are mounted vertically, on the inside of the gunnels, ensuring a clean, unobstructed forward deck.
  5. While the party atmosphere is foremost on the flybridge, a fully instrumented console includes all electronics systems and controls, as well as a bow thruster control and hydraulic steering. Lazzara's upper helm is among the best in the business. Aerodynamically correct and ergonomically right, the displays are perfectly angled for seated or standing operation.
  6. A teak sole on the aft deck underlines the settee group. Seating six to eight, with stainless steel standoffs, it provides a comfortable fresh air/aft observation area, and access to the sport transom deck. Rear bulwarks provide safety, with access to the flybridge via a molded fiberglass stairwell. Access is also provided leading to the forward and side decks. Lighting and speakers are installed under the hardtop, where a camera is also at the ready.
  7. From the aft deck’s double sliding glass doors, the view forward into the sumptuous salon reveals Lazzara’s commitment to contemporary interior design. Pecan and light Makore cherrywood wainscoting covers the lower walls, windowsills and mullions, as well as valances and cornices. Carpeting throughout adds to the comfort as well as sound control. The ceiling treatment features darker wood accents, with recessed low voltage lighting. To starboard is the multi-faceted entertainment center – 42” plasma TV with surround-sound stereo/CD/DVD. Deep-cushioned couches and easy chairs complete the setting, with decorative stained glass illustrations forward of the dining alcove. Side windows are 3/8” laminated glass.
  8. Facing aft, the opposite view presents the formal dining area with its high-gloss table and six well-fashioned upholstered chairs. Custom Pecan and Makore cherrywood storage cabinets serve the forward bulkhead, while beveled glass cabinets with accent lighting hold china and tableware for formal and informal occasions. The floor is fully carpeted. Three forward window mullions are trimmed in wood.
  9. The yacht’s dayhead, conveniently located on the foredeck, sports a marble floor, with a spectacular marble countertop on its Pecan vanity-medicine cabinet. The curved faucet is Aquabrass® satin/nickel, pouring into a decorative glass bowl.
  10. Glittering with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, the galley sets a precedence with bamboo flooring. It presents an island stainless steel double sink with a Grohe single lever faucet. Double, side-by-side refrigerator/freezers plus cooking appliances – microwave/oven and 4-burner electric range – are also in stainless steel. There is a large built-in pantry. Other conveniences include a 15” LCD flat screen TV, as well as a dishwasher and trash compactor. Stairs lead up to the flybridge, and there is a side sliding door to the weather deck.
  11. The galley also extends abeam to the helm area. Forward of the salon on the main deck, it takes on the style of an “American country kitchen,” – so favored both here and abroad – open between prep and L-shaped Pecan breakfast booth areas. Placed forward opposite-aport of the helm, it makes grand use of morning light through the windshields, and supports party conversation between snackers, chef, and pilot.
  12. Forward on the main deck, the lower helm presides over the ship’s maneuvers, with double-wide seating. All electronic engine instruments and navigational equipment – with clutches, throttles and bow thruster – are controlled via I.S.I.S., Lazzara’s unique fiber-optic Integrated Shipboard Information System, computer-based monitoring from this station as well as the flybridge. The windshields display 3/8” laminated chemically strengthened glass. While just abeam from the galley/dinette, the helm area can be closed off from the main salon with a sliding door.
  13. At the lower level of the stairs on the lower foredeck, a small office/hutch comes in handy for business matters which always arise. Much like many of Lazzara's designs, it makes the optimum use of space, but incorporating the desk into the forward cabin foyer. It's out of the way, but easily accessed.
  14. The port side forward stateroom features a full size double berth, its base in upholstered Majilite. There is a night stand in veneered woods, offering storage drawers with satin nickel latches, while cabinetry follows the yacht décor with cherrywood veneers. Fully carpeted, the room offers a hanging locker with mirrored door and private access to a head. A 15” LCD TV and stereo system provides entertainment. There are also opening ports. The head/shower has an under-hung sink and marble countertop, as well as Grohe fixtures, and a mirrored medicine cabinet.
  15. A Pullman berth in the bow stateroom offers upper and lower single berths, trimmed in light cherrywood, as is the accompanying storage cabinet, and dresser. The carpeted room has wall mounted reading lights, 15” LCD TV plus stereo system, and private access to the head with its enclosed shower stall. And finally, a deck access hatch is provided for fresh air as there are no portholes this far forward.
  16. The main suite foyer on the lower level leads to the master, as well as two VIP suites forward. Not shown in this picture is the staircase, immediately to the left, that connects to the main deck.
  17. Below and aft of midship, the luxurious master suite, at full beam, offers a king-size island berth on a solid, decorative wood base, with sculpted veneer detailing and deep storage drawers. The bed itself boasts a padded headboard alongside mirrored walls. The décor theme follows with Pecan and Makore cherrywood-veneered bureaus, port and starboard, as well as bookcases and open shelving.
  18. Deeply padded, modeled carpeting runs throughout. The ceiling treatment also features wood embellishments. A 42” plasma TV with surround sound and stereo systems provides entertainment. There is a generous walk-in closet and full-height mirror on the closet door.
  19. To starboard of the master suite, a "vanity with a view" is flanked by two large bureaus and glass corner shelving. Finished in Pecan and Makore cherrywood, it follows the yacht’s décor theme much like the eliptical window follows the 84' curvaceous styling.
  20. Satin-nickel fixtures, a Jacuzzi, and an enclosed full-sized tub with enclosure sets this feature apart from many other yachts of larger size. There are dual shower-heads, both hand-held, in the marble tub, as well as marble walls. A mirrored medicine cabinet stands above the twin personal sinks set in onyx marble. The floor is marble as well. Overhead, Makore cherrywood forms the lighting valances.
