Lazzara Yachts has seen three generations of the Lazzara family design and build semi-custom, composite luxury yachts and superyachts in Tampa, Florida.
Founded in 1956 by Vince Lazzara, the shipyard builds contemporary luxury yachts conceived by an in-house team led by design director Joey Lazzara. Vince built Lazzara Yachts’ first large fiberglass sailing yacht, and followed her with several successful sailing yacht ventures, SeaRover houseboats, and the popular Gulfstar motorsailers and trawlers, which later merged with Viking Yachts.
In 1991, Dick and Brad Lazzara created Lazzara Yacht Corporation. After two years, the first Lazzara 23.75-metre yacht was introduced.
