New Model: Lazzara 76 Breeze

Named as the Lazzara 76 LMC project, the Fort Lauderdale show presented 76 Breeze is an interesting new model and continues the spirit of innovation route as started by this family run company in the last decade. The 76 Breeze is a motor yacht of the future, and while its main interest will surely be its propulsion of three engines with ZF pods, there is much more to it. Most interesting is that the 76 Breeze is surely one of the most spacious yachts in this size, not because of its four double cabins layout, very huge crew lobby, but also for other amenities as an utility room in between the rooms, and one of the largest flybridges in this size. In all this I have to say the 76 Breeze looks elegant, classic yet modern. Without going to far this is big challenge to European builders in this style of yacht with a US flare to the overall, and with ingenuity that rarely comes from the US in these sizes. Power which is the ticket of interest of this yacht is three Cummins 600hp with ZF pods propulsion which will offer a benefit of consumption numbers at the pump to move this fifty toner motor yacht.
