Project: Lazzara LMY85

Lazzara presents the LMY85, what will be a replacement model of the LMY85 SS.  As recent Lazzara the LMY85 continues the European influenced design both outside and inside with an American feel to the overall concept of the yacht.  The LMY85 will offer an interesting interior plan with a four cabins layout, with one of the guest cabins located aft.  A crew quarters offering a captains double berth, and two bunk beds with heads is to be located forwards.  The owners cabin as the large windows suggest is to be located to mid ship.  There is also a separate stair case for the owners stateroom and the two double guest cabins located to mid ship.  The main deck will also feature a day head, and as US tradition says there is an option of a with or without lower helm choice.  Power will be from twin Cats 1900hp engines with Lazzara promising a 37 knots top speed.  So far propulsion details are not announced but this top end speed does suggest to me a different to the usual tried and tested traditional line shaft.
