Lazzara Yachts Puts Fast-Moving Virgin on the Market
The impressive 95-foot Lazzara LSY has a top speed of 30 knots
April 7, 2015
Lazzara Yachts has just listed the 95-foot Lazzara LSY Virgin for sale on the brokerage market. She is a 2014 build with an asking price of $8.95 million.
Virgin can achieve 30 knots thanks to triple Volvo Penta IPS 1200 engines that show 650 hours and are still covered by a manufacturer's warranty.
“It’s the first triple IPS 1200 boat,” says sales broker Rich Lazzara. “It’s Hull No. 5, but it was the first new design where we used a lot of new technology throughout it. Most of it has to do with the interior. It utilized a lot of lightweight materials.”
The original owner, Lazzara says, had previously owned two Lazzara builds and wanted materials typically used in homes on board his third commission. “They’re fine in a house because a house doesn’t move,” he says. “When you put them in a boat that does 30 knots, it becomes a whole different animal.”
To achieve the owner’s demands, Lazzara Yachts had to suspend the floors about an eighth of an inch above the yacht’s structure, using isolation mounts.
“On superyachts, they do that to separate noise and vibration,” Lazzara said. “On this, our concern was the floor being able to sustain 30-knot speeds at sea and over time not have any flexing, warping, cracking. It has worked.”
Virgin is being marketed as "better than new" and has had a crew of three handling maintenance and upkeep since the day she launched, Lazzara said. She is for sale because the owner is looking to move up to a larger yacht.
