Lazzara Yachts for Sale

Lazzara History

Lazzara Yachts was founded by Vince Lazzara, a man from Chicago with a love of the ocean. But the company wasn’t always known as Lazzara. Mr. Lazzara was a chemical engineer who in 1955 built his own boat, a 40’ sailboat, which he christened Bounty II. He used new techniques and worked with AeroMarine to construct his sailboat. It was the largest fiberglass boat ever built, and it was beautiful. Mr. Lazzara enjoyed the challenge that went into designing Bounty II, so in 1960 he started Columbia yachts, which at the time was the producing more fiberglass sailboats for sale than any other company in the world. While he sold the successful Columbia, Mr. Lazzara still could not stay away from the water, and so he founded Gulfstar Yachts, which added motor yachts to the sailing boats for which Columbia was famous. Perhaps it was his belief that “God only gives you so many days, but the ones you spend at sea don’t count against you,” that kept drawing Mr. Lazzara back to designing bigger and better yachts for sale. Both of his sons, Brad and Dick, joined Gulfstar and the company became known worldwide as producing charter vessels.

Like their father, Dick and Brad had the ocean in their blood. In 1990 they founded Lazzara Yachts, a company that focused on customer needs and market gaps. Their innovative production process allowed clients to customize yachts to their own style and needs. The company designed a unique Skylounge Cabriolet, which covered the fly bridge to create more living space. It was the Cadillac of the motor yacht class.

Today, Lazzara Yachts for sale are highly customizable and personalized for each buyer. Vince Lazzara’s grandsons – Joe, Rich, Tony, and Steve – have all joined in the family business to add their own unique abilities to an ever-growing company.



Lazzara Yachts has been awarded many honors through the years, including:

  • MTU “Zero Defect” award, 1994
  • Showboats International award for semi-custom yachts, 2000
  • International Superyacht Design award for best power in the 23-32m range, 2000
  • American Society of Interior Designers, recognized numerous times
