New Model: Lazzara LSX 78 Fly

A new model from Lazzara is always big news for those who like innovative yachts. The US builder has been the pusher of new materials usage, and modern design solutions in the last years, challenging European competitors in what usually is there league. This new LSX 78 Fly is a further improvement of the success that is the LSX 75 delivered in over twelve examples as at 2009. Actually the LSX 78 Fly was born first as a 75 version project with the addition of a sport bridge feature in early last year. But during development phase the yard extended the bathing platform, and the US firm decided for a new model designation. Another change was also made for the bridge clearance with the LSX 78 Fly being one foot higher to the LSX 75. Apart the new spacious flybridge which adds a further area of entertainment, the LSX 78 Fly keeps the same unique principle of the 75. The interior is the much sought four cabin, eight berth layout with full beam owners stateroom, and VIP suite to fore. Performance stays the same again with the quadruple IPS600 435hp set up giving moderate fast 32 knots max, and most importantly a 26 knots cruise with impressive efficiency delivering about 400 nautical miles range.
