  1. A close-up of the instrument panel shows something extremely foreign in the yachting world... Mercruiser throttles! For go-fast guys, that would be a big red flag (with an occasional checkered), but in this case we're talkin' Cummins proven power, ABT Trac stability and touch screen simplicity.
  2. The “downstairs” hallway is all-too-familiar, if you’ve been aboard the LSX models. Forward is the VIP. Moving aft, halfway down the hall are port and starboard staterooms, each partitioned with windows that when open, allow beam-to-beam views of the horizon, which is becoming a Lazzara trademark. The taupe/chocolate theme continues below, but instead of wood, the soles are carpeted.
  3. The Master Stateroom sports a king-size walk-around raised berth that backs to the port side. As opposed to a center pedestal bed, it really gives the room more size and breadth. Veneered night stands port and starboard feature ‘block-based’ lamps. The bed pedestal offers copious storage beneath. Plus, a walk-in closet, upholstered love seat; all done in crisp, highly finished wood veneers. In all, the yacht features a total of five staterooms, housing owner, guests & crew.
  4. At the beam-side, across from the Master’s berth, the 54” drop-down HD TV provides a ready entertainment-escape to the movie world. Beam-to-beam windows sport shades that when pulled, pitch the master into darkness. Overhead panels are Majilite with foam backing.
  5. The Master Bath follows modern design concepts with the latest trend in raised wash basins and fancy fixtures. An expanded vanity mirror adds visual breadth, while a perimeter backlight adds a soft glow. Floors are tile, but any number of finishes can be used. Just stipulate ‘em!
  6. The Master walk-in closet provides plenty of clothes storage, a hanging locker and closet / shelf space. It is easily one of the largest walk-in closets in the 75’ range.
  7. LMC’s VIP Stateroom, forward, makes a good weekender, but the pointy end has never been a place for extended stays. Still, it provides all the comforts, with twin glass portholes (which are mostly rectangular these days), adequate walk-around ease for mounting the queen (berth!). Carpeted, it boasts a decorative, padded head-board, with storage beneath, and a flat screen LCD, DVD/CD/stereo. The hanging locker sports a full-length mirrored door.
  8. Inset forward, the VIP bath offers a porcelain sink with storage beneath, a mirrored vanity and a walk-in shower cabinet. There is a glass towel shelf; a medicine cabinet with frosted glass front, and dark chocolate tile flooring.
  9. Her guest double also sports a well-designed sleeping room with a built-in stowage pedestal, end table and twin port windows. The padded headboard screams subtle hints of fun, or loony cruises! Opposite the hallway is a guest twin cabin that proffers two single bunks, side by side, with the same chocolate and creme theme throughout.
  10. Elementary design with a Headhunter marine toilet, the Guest Bath shows a single vanity, sink with stowage beneath, plus head, and shower. Lazzara has a knack for sourcing very unique accessories, including these pretty funky faucets.
  11. Don't let this picture fool you, the crew hallway isn't nearly this wide, but it's surprisingly livable below, with a single berth; the Captain’s, designed with a separate head, dresser and closet. Additional cabins house three crew berths, all accessed by an aft deck hatch that leaves burly guys behind. This was about the only complaint we could muster up in an otherwise stellar example of space utilization. The linen closet in the mate’s room has direct access to the engine room and aft deck. A Miele stacked washer-dryer and an auxiliary foyer with storage and tools are nearby. Entertainment is provided with a 15” LCD TV/DVD, plus a sitting room for leisure, with a double berth.
  12. Aligned side by side, but staggered by deadrise in the all white, epoxy-coated engine room, the yacht’s triple cadre of Cummins Diesel QSC6 Zeus 3-litre 600 hp work-horses stand ready to roar in a trio of redundancy. Flooring is metal diamond plate. Instrumentation includes CMD control panels, start/stop integration with Station Transfer panels and alarms for the Zeus exhaust systems, plus an idle bypass. Other mechanical systems include 92,000 BTU air conditioning, bilge pumps, and fire suppression, as well as carbon monoxide detectors. That big white box above is the inner liner to the dive locker. Although it looks like a bump in the head, it really doesn't interfere with access to the engines at all. To the far port side of the engine room is a Glendinning CableMaster and holding bucket. The most impressive aspect of the engine room is something you can't see, but you can definitely feel. After 4 hours of running and ten minutes of shut-down, the temperature inside the engine room had already returned to ambient. This is partly due to a powerful ventilation system, but also because the volumetric area of the room is comparatively small.
  13. The dive locker is accessed from the swim platform. It has a built in bench for getting your gear on and provides an ample area for Sea Bobs, bicycle or scooter storage, or just a shaded spot for a beach chair while others explore the bottom of the LMC, looking for a set of struts. ;)
  14. For a perspective on the garage, this shot was taken at FLIBS 2010. Although the swim platform spans the beam, an 18' section on the starboard side remains fixed to the hull, serving as a 'dock' when the tender is deployed. Although the first LMC doesn't have a dedicated tender yet, the space is best utilized by a small inflatable.
  15. Lazzara’s leadership in boat building dates back to the 1950s. In that long-ago era its Bounty series earmarked America’s progress and fascination for live-aboard yachts in the post-WWII era. As a pioneer builder in a fancy new material known as fiberglass, Lazzara’s Gulfstar progression heralded a number of followers moving from wood to fiberglass. Then, as at present, the company led in designs for voyagers and live-aboards. Now, its sparkling new 76 again emphasizes leadership in design concepts for yacht fanciers.

    In the final measure, with this exemplary effort, Lazzara -- teamed with Cummins Diesel -- has created the World’s First Triple-Pod Motor Yacht; a new vision in motor yachting through advanced thinking and technology. It will no doubt open new doors for imaginative cruise/running control and voyaging.

    A brilliant new idea in yachting - the LMC76 is certain
    to challenge new horizons worldwide. ​
