Here’s a brokerage opportunity that doesn’t come around every day: a chance to own a pair of Lazzara 80 motoryachts.

Jody Lee, a 2004 build, and Passion, a 2005 build, are both currently for sale through Lazzara Lenton Yachts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Jody Lee is listed at an asking price of $2.35 million, and Passion's owner is asking $2.49 million. Both are Open Bridge Grand Salon models with a pair of 1,550-hp Caterpillar C30 diesels.

That's not to say they're identical yachts in terms of performance, of course. (Always read those full specs carefully!) Jody Lee has a cruising speed of 24 knots and a top speed of 32 knots, while Passion is a little faster at cruise speed, at 27 knots, but slower at the top end, at 30 knots.

Where these yachts are the same is in their layout, with five staterooms apiece to keep even the extended family comfortable during long-weekend getaways. Each yacht also has six (count ’em!) heads, including the en suites in the staterooms.

And while Passion is a one-owner yacht that has always been maintained by crew, Jody Lee can claim a bit more recent news in terms of upgrades thanks to $100,000 worth of refit work in spring 2013. Among other things, she has new paint in the machinery area, new Garmin touchscreen displays at the helm and a touchup of her exterior gelcoat.

Passion is currently lying in Fort Myers, Florida, while_ Jody Lee_ is in Fort Lauderdale — and is available for viewings during the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. For more information, contact Rich Lazzara at Lazzara Lenton, www.lazzaralenton.com.
