I’m so privileged to have enjoyed a 12-year history with this awesome yacht and her owners. I’ve been an occasional and eager guest or member of her crew, having traveled approximately 18,000 miles aboard, up and down the east coast many times, through most of the ICW repeatedly, as well as back and forth to the Bahamas. She’s a magnificent craft in all respects – trend setting when first built, and still a fast, powerful, and supremely comfortable yacht for luxury cruising. She’s timeless in her lines and fits comfortably amongst the $5M+ yachts being built today. Her owners have traveled approximately 45,000 miles on her over the last 12 years.

Having spent so much time aboard, I’ve become very familiar with her many virtues and wonderful features. There were 40 of these yachts built from 1994 until 2002. This is hull #2. Why does that matter? This was only the second Lazzara ever to exist. You can bet that the company went to extreme lengths to get everything just right as their new company got off the ground. These first yachts off the line had to be as close to perfect as possible to help secure new orders and help the company grow into the luxury yacht builder they are today.

There were two other configurations of this yacht (wide bodies and the sky lounge edition). This is BY FAR the most ‘boaty’ of the group. Having the side decks is essential to daily boating and practical use. Do you want to slog through a widebody model in foulies and carrying wet lines and fenders? The open flybridge is truly the ONLY way to be a true boater. Yes, the sky lounge adds more square footage to your interior space but do you need more interior space? Do you really want to drive your yacht through the Caribbean from inside your living room? Of course not…


Notes/highlights about this boat:

She’s sleek, she’s fast, and she’s beautiful. Her layout just works really well. She’s a party boat for 30-40 of your best friends for a day, a cruiser that sleeps ten, or an incredible family voyager with fantastic living and lounge spaces. You just won’t find a megayacht with a better layout than this boat. She has five staterooms and five en suite heads plus a day head off the galley and interior helm. She’s a true voyager yacht with incredible exterior acreage for wonderful times spent outdoors underway or at anchor. When the weather isn’t suitable, you can run the entire yacht from the safety and warmth of the lower helm down below.

LAZZARA Company History:

Though Lazzara Yachts was founded in 1990, this family owned business has a long and rich yachting history dating all the way back to 1955 when mechanical engineer Vince Lazzara designed and built his first large sailing yacht, the Columbia Yachts 40. As a pioneer of fiberglass construction, Vince and Columbia Yachts quickly became the largest manufacturer of fiberglass sailboats in the world. In 1967, Vince sold Columbia yachts and ventured to Florida, where he formed Gulfstar Yachts. Capitalizing on Columbia’s excellent reputation, Gulfstar quickly became a leader in the production high quality ocean capable yachts. By 1975, Gulfstar had ventured into production of high-end performance motor yachts and soon Vince’s two sons, Brad and Dick joined the family business.

Brad and Dick soon saw the potential to move the power end of the business in a new and exciting direction. In 1990, the Lazzara brothers broke off on their own, forming Lazzara Yachts Corporation, quickly establishing the company as a high-end producer of semi-custom order yachts that would revolutionize the 76’ to 116’ yacht market. Their first yacht, the Lazzara 76 left the production line in 1994, bringing the new company instant world-wide accolades for innovation by wedding Italian-style design, a luxury interior, high end finishes, and award winning construction. Lazzara has received a number of awards including the MTU “Zero Defect” award for the Lazzara 76 in 1994, as well as awards from The American Society of Interior Designers, Showboats International, International Superyacht Design, and Mercedes Benz. Lazzara has continued with their award-winning construction of semi-custom yachts ranging from 68’ to 130.’  ON COURSE is hull #2 from this amazing company.

Entering ON COURSE from the custom sliding door at the aft cockpit, the main salon features curved sofas both port and starboard, an entertainment system just inside the doors to starboard, a desk/bar area on starboard, and a full dining room for six people to port before you pass the day head to starboard on your way forward to the galley to port, forward lounge on starboard, and full interior helm on port. There are two side exits from the helm/lounge area both port and starboard, easing docking maneuvers in close quarters. There are steps heading below forward to the main office to port, the 2ndupper/lower en suite stateroom/crew quarters to starboard, and a second VIP suite in the bow. There are also steps heading up to the spacious outside fly bridge.

Back in the main salon, there’s a spiral staircase that takes you down to a lower foyer area with a walk-in closet, half-height cabinet storage, lighted sculpture display area, and passage doors to the owner’s stateroom aft, VIP stateroom forward to port, and an upper/lower stateroom forward to starboard. Every stateroom is equipped with en suite heads & showers.

There’s easily comfortable seating for 14-18 people here when entertaining. Surround yourself with plush upholstery, beautiful lacquered cabinetry, smoked glass windows providing a nearly 360 degree view, and accent & room lighting everywhere. Check out the daylight and evening photos provided to see what we mean. There’s a large desk to starboard, built in ice maker and bar service, cabinets and under-seat storage everywhere it was possible to design it in. There’s so much storage on this yacht, you’ll need to create spreadsheets to keep track of all your gear.

Full-size Kitchenaid appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and water dispenser, a microwave (new in 2014), 4-burner glass cook top and a large single bowl stainless steel sink. There is counter space galore and lots of upper and lower deep storage cabinetry to house your cook and plate ware. Plenty of natural light comes in through a 7’-0” long window to port and the lounge windows and sliding exit door to starboard.

The large electronics panel is laid out well for her existing suite of gear and will be easy to modify as subsequent owners upgrade to new equipment. All the 12V & 240V systems are controlled here. Though many yachts of this size and type tend to segregate the helm from the living spaces, ON COURSE smartly incorporates seating for seven people in the helm area. You can lounge here, nap here, and have a great meal as well while sharing helm duties on a passage. The gourmet galley is just aft of this space, so when one of you is preparing a great meal, you’re just a few short feet from your fellow shipmate at the helm.

This is the lounge space at anchor. It’s wide and deep, has bench seating for four, portable chair seating for another 4, and a thoughtful retractable table that seats two when that’s all you need, and then opens for four when you want to entertain. There are two long benches in either corner with storage beneath and access to stern docking cleats. The teak decking is freshly refinished and shows beautifully. Overhead are bright lights for evening use, two powerful floods for lighting the water aft of the swim/sport deck and three-way hifi speakers controlled by a remote Linn Audio panel near the slider to the main salon. There’s a ladder here that heads up to the flybridge, handy for docking maneuvers. There are four folding upholstered deck chairs as well. It’s an easy trip down the steps to the swim/sports deck as well. Two hinged gates on port and starboard make this the ideal spot for ingress/egress.

  • LED bulwark lighting (new 2011)
  • Overhead lighting in brow
  • Four hinged gates for easy ingress/egress
  • Stainless rails at waist height for sure footing underway


ON COURSE has a flybridge nearly unparalleled in this size/price range megayacht. It’s HUGE and very accommodating. There has been a disturbing trend in yacht design over recent years that puts every spot on a boat inside. Yes, they give you big sunroofs and huge sliding windows, but you’re still driving the boat from a living room. You belong outside! The beauty of this flybridge is that it’s enclosed enough with EZ2C hard plastic windshields and stratoglass side curtains that you can be out there in some pretty chilly and wet weather and still have a great boating experience. Bring on some nicer weather and you open all that up for a true OUTSIDE boating experience. It’s the only way to fly! Forget the ‘sky lounges’ and enclosed upper helms.

The helm is on the centerline of the boat. There’s a lot of acreage to devote to electronics. The I.S.I.S. system can be monitored and controlled here. Navigation, radar, depth, fish finding, VHF , autopilot, spotlight, bow thruster, all are at arm’s length from the wheel. The Glendinning engine synchonizer allows you to use just one throttle lever at all speeds to perfectly and electronically match RPMs between the two CATS which keeps vibration at a minimum and maximizes fuel efficiency.

There are three captain’s chairs across the front of the flybridge. 360 degree visibility is excellent from here. Just behind the helm chairs, there’s a rounded lounge space with table for relaxing and dining. There’s another two-person bench to starboard as you head aft. Around behind the round lounge seating, there’s a refrigerator, storage cabinet and gas grill to port.

Towards the aft end of the flybridge you’ll find the storage chocks on the deck with matching davit cranes on either side of the boat for easy toy launching and retrieval. There’s an aft opening hatch leading to a ladder for quick access to/from the aft lower cockpit. The 8-man life raft is mounted here. Dock fenders are stored here. There’s a dock box on the starboard stern corner containing life jackets.

  • Helmsman has panoramic 360 degree view from wheel
  • Electronics all within easy reach of helm
  • Side and forward enclosure allows for comfortable off-season boating
  • Round w/table, bench, and captain’s chair seating easily accommodates 10 people

  • Electric grill built-in
  • Opening port and ladder aft provide quick access to aft cockpit and stern of boat
  • Storage lockers under helm, under seating, and at flybridge galley provide ample space for ship’s stores


ON COURSE has a sophisticated yet simple to operate electronics suite at both the pilothouse and flybridge. Here unique and all-encompassing I.S.I.S. yacht monitoring system keeps a check on everything on the yacht as well as keeping a permanent log of activity since the yacht was first built. Further, as electronics evolve over time, Lazzara Yachts has incorporated simple to navigate wire chases and access rooms in front of (and under) both upper and lower helms. Future possibilities are limitless…

CAT C-18’s, 1050 HP in-line 6-cylinder diesels, new in 2003, are the centerpiece of this thoughtfully laid out engine room. Raw water cooled ZF transmissions deliver 2100HP to the custom 4-blade props to propel ON COURSE to a top speed of 24 knots and an efficient ‘all day’ cruising speed of 20 knots. That’s Annapolis to West Palm Beach, about 1000 miles, in 40-50 hours! If you prefer the more relaxed ‘cruise ship’ speed of 10 knots, maybe some ICW time mixed with some off shore time, the typical trip is about 80 hours and less than 1000 gallons of fuel – amazing fuel efficiency for a megayacht of these proportions.

Let’s talk about range. This can be a distance yacht or a zoom zoom yacht – your choice! Most yachtsmen in multi-million dollar yachts love the ability to go fast, though they also enjoy the ‘cruise ship’ quality of a 10-knot pace as well. With a top speed of 24 knots (2350 RPM), her comfortable and most fuel efficient fast cruise speed is about 20 knots (1900 RPM). At this pace, she’s burning a fuel efficient 70 GPH with a range of 450 miles on a tank, leaving a 10% reserve. At a cruise ship speed of 10 knots (1080 RPM), she’s only burning 12 GPH and has an incredible range of almost miles burning only 1.0 gallons per mile and 1275 nautical mile range. Over all the years I’ve traveled on this yacht, we have routinely averaged about 15 GPH on each trip, occasionally opening up the throttle for a few hours to get to a destination by the end of the day or simply to just exercise the big CAT’s. 

  • 1700 gallon fuel capacity
  • 24 knot top speed at 2350 RPM
  • 20 knot cruising speed at 1900 RPM
  • 450 mile range at 20 knots
  • 10 knot ‘cruise ship’ long range cruising speed at 1080 RPM
  • 1275 mile range at 10 knots!  AMAZING!!!!!


Originally purchased in Florida in 2003 by her current owners, ON COURSE made her maiden voyage with her new owner to Annapolis. Once on the Chesapeake, she developed a problem with her starboard MTU engine. Lazzara was considering a switch to CAT propulsion in their new lines of yachts anyway so a decision was made to switch from the 12 cylinder MTU’s to lighter and more fuel efficient in-line 6 cylinder CAT C-18s. After a brief time in the yard on the Chesapeake, her first trip south with the new engines was the fall of 2003. Performance was amazing, fuel efficiency vastly improved. Top end and cruise speeds were virtually unchanged.

From 2003 through 2015, the yacht has routinely traveled up and down the east coast of the US, inshore, offshore, from Florida to Maine as well as excursions out to the Bahamas regularly. ON COURSE never sees cold weather. She heads south every fall from the Chesapeake around November 1, winters in Florida and the Bahamas, and heads north to home base in Annapolis every spring. She ventures north to Maine routinely as well. Why have a yacht like this and not use it! Her current owners have traveled in excess of 45000 miles over the last 12 years.


Though it has been a wonderful 12 years, it’s time to downsize to a smaller yacht and a smaller area for cruising.


When I travel with clients FAR out of town for yachts, I don't like surprises when I get there. It's embarrassing for me and can make for an expensive trip. With that in mind, I'd like to share my rating of various systems on the boat so you'll be as informed as possible before you come for a visit. My rating system is on a 1-10 scale with 10 being 'perfect' (in MY opinion). Please view this list as a GUIDE only. Everyone's idea of good and bad can vary quite a bit. My goal in doing this is to help you reach a comfort level with the boat before you invest time and energy to come and see it. I'll summarize by saying that this appears to be an excellent yacht worthy of serious consideration.

Beyond telling you what’s great about a yacht, don’t you also want to know what it needs next?  Every yacht, no matter how turn-key, needs something.  Every owner has next year’s list of ‘to-do’s, right?  I’ll also include in this section what I think the boat could use to take her from nearly perfect to perfect and ready to go.


Overall – 8.5/10.0

ON COURSE has held up incredibly well due to the diligence of an extremely conscientious and thoughtful owner. He keeps very detailed logs of all boat projects, upcoming maintenance, as well as past and scheduled upgrades.

Unique to Lazzara Yachts, ON COURSE is equipped with an interactive fully integrated vessel monitoring system, called I.S.I.S. or Integrated Shipboard Information System, that tracks every single mechanical and electrical system on the boat, and has kept a complete record going back to the day she was first commissioned (195,233 hours as of 1/30/15). The brilliance of this, beyond the help it provides her owner for systems management, is that it’s a perfect and complete record of the entire history of the yacht for any potential buyer. Perusing this record will

Overall, what does ON COURSE need? For the most part, just some cosmetic updates, part of a regularly scheduled maintenance regimen, already in place. Her next owner will pick up on the same list of upgrades most likely.

Here are some items on the current ship’s upcoming maintenance list. Nearly everything on this list is just a cosmetic issue:

  • Much of the interior vinyl coated padded wall upholstery has been replaced. The rest of it needs to be done.
  • The fixtures in the heads are dated and losing their finish and need replacement.
  • The primary ship’s audio/video entertainment system needs updating/freshening
  • Some small areas of gelcoat around the boat need spot repairs and freshening.
  • The 100 amp shore power cord is getting old/stiff and needs replacement.
  • Some of the newer LED TV’s need their installation neatened up a bit
  • The 15” LCD computer displays at the flybridge are getting old and could be replaced with brighter units
  • Some of the interior finishes could use some updating

Design – 10.0/10.0

You can’t do better than the architecturally functional layout of this yacht. She’s truly timeless in design and fits comfortably amongst other megayachts of similar size of any vintage and any price. Her spaces flow easily from one to another. She’s one of the first yachts of this size designed to be run by a cruising couple without need for any crew. Most owners barely even ever need to use the bowthruster.

Interior – 8.5/10.0

Beautifully laid out, ON COURSE features seamlessly blended spaces that flow from one to another. Her upholstery, carpeting, and most wall and ceiling panels have all been updated. There are a few wall panels here and there that could be freshened. Some of the upholstery is showing minor wear and tear. As with any yacht with a few years under her belt, she needs some updating in the heads and staterooms.

Exterior – 8.0/10.0

Her gelcoat and exterior finishes are holding up very well. ON COURSE gets regular weekly and annual detailing by professionals. Her window trim paint around the main salon windows and front windshield (the gray metallic areas) were all freshened in 2012. She could use a little touch up of gelcoat here and there around the swim deck, engine room, and various small locations on the flybridge, like around the two davit cranes.

Flybridge – 9.0/10.0

It just doesn’t get better than this. The flybridge on this yacht is huge, accommodating, and open to the weather when you want it, and significantly closed off when you want to extend the front or rear end of the boating season. There’s plenty of seating/lounge space, and finishes are in excellent shape. A complete suite of operation/navigation electronics gives you full control of the yacht from up here. Visibility in all directions is superb, both underway and while docking.

Electronics – 8.5/10.0

The electronics systems have regularly been serviced and updated. Her radar, chart plotting, autopilot, and communications systems are all top notch and work flawlessly. You enjoy full control of the vessel from both the interior lower helm as well as the exterior flybridge helm. She could probably use a computer update for navigation (older COMPAQ unit), though her navigation software is completely up to date. One could always update the whole boat with new electronics but that’s hard to do when everything you have works so well. The 15” monitors at both the lower helm and flybridge, along with the typical suite of depth, speed, GPS, back-up chip driven chart plotting from the Furuno unit up top, all make for safe and fun boating in the most remote locations.

Propulsion – 9.0/10.0

The quality and diligence of an owner is most often gauged in this space. ON COURSE has enjoyed a very conscientious owner who has kept systems healthy and functional. The CAT C-18s, (new in 2003), push her at 24 knots when you need it and 20 knots day in and day out when on a passage. At a ‘cruise ship’ speed of 10 knots, her efficiency and range are unparalleled. The CATS have constantly been serviced, cleaned, and touch-up painted to keep them functional and beautiful. The layout of the engine room facilitates very easy access to everything on both engines for regular maintenance. This makes it easier (and cheaper) to keep them in top condition. The CATS are performance tested and inspected every year as part of the Lazzara owner’s ‘Sea Check’ program to confirm with independent eyes that they are continually kept in great shape.

Ship’s Systems – 8.5/10.0

Regularly maintained, everything works well. AC systems have been serviced and replaced as necessary (there are seven discrete HVAC systems throughout the boat). The plumbing and electrical systems have all been maintained/serviced and are in good working order.
