Built on a foiling catamaran hull with either an enclosed or open deck version, the Lazzara Family introduces a new 60-foot multi-hulled yacht. The steady, wide platform is a new aluminum and carbon fiber yacht design whose arrangement and amenities exemplify easy passenger access. Designed by Joe Lazzara, LC-60 was actually inspired by Joe’s brother, Rich Lazzara, who recently resigned from the yachting industry to focus on his health following an ALS diagnosis last year.
“We wanted to create the ultimate family boat,” said Joe Lazzara, president and CEO of Legacy Superyachts by the Lazzara Family. “The platform of the catamaran is ideal for some of the objectives we wanted to achieve.”
The beach club settee has three different configurations, providing flexibility for entertainment.
Features like articulating stairs allow easier access on and off the dock, especially agility-challenged yachtsmen yearning to safely cruise in luxury and style. “Boarding and getting in and out of the water will be pretty seamless,” said Lazzara.

A glass bottom salt water pool allows for zero gravity relaxation. Interchangeable, beach deck furniture provides flexibility for the owner’s space. The voluminous hull design with outboard engines provides space for two WaveRunners or water toys concealed below deck. The interior offers the signature Lazzara atrium galley amid a five cabin arrangement as well as a layout for four cabins plus crew. The main deck’s starboard settee seats eight with a full bar and popup 60” TV, shaded, aft facing settees with high-low tables and an 80-square-foot sun pad on the bow area for sunbathing.
The 600 hp Quad outboard engines pack this yacht with power, enabling a top speed of 45 knots, with the foil allowing more efficiency and a smoother ride.
“We are talking to a builders about a joint venture of this particular LC-60 design and making it a reality,” said Lazzara. “I would like to see it in a production facility and believe the outboard power catamaran segment will continue to grow in popularity.”
Rich Lazzara can’t wait to see this innovative yacht built. “While many lifestyle changes have been forced upon me, my passion for the yachting industry has not wavered,” Rich Lazzara said. “My brother, Tony Lazzara, stepped into my position at HMY Yacht Sales to serve the many brokerage clients I have had the privilege of serving for so many years. I am grateful for all our memories on the docks, at boat shows and closing transactions and look forward to seeing you on the water.”
