Which Yacht?

I can’t make any recommendations on the Ferretti, as you did not mention a particular model, however I can point out some attributes about the Lazzara 68-S and the Azimut 68 Plus, that would make a deciding difference in my opinion…

On the Azimut 68-Plus…

The main salon on the Azimut is completely open and multi level. Grouping the salon, dinette, bridge and galley together in to one room basically partitions it, but this room becomes very busy and it would be a hassle to transverse this area on a daily basis, because it is not on the same level. However, this does give the interior a very dimensional appeal.

My biggest gripe with the Azimut is the galley… or lack thereof. It is really not much larger than a standard wet-bar on most yachts. The galley is always a popular place for guests and family to congregate, but there is not adequate room for this either.

On the Lazzara 68-S…

The salon interior is not quite as curvy as the Azimut, however it is MUCH more spacious and everything is on the SAME level, including the salon, a full size forward galley, dinette and the wheelhouse, that provides a generous area for everyone to come together, whether it be for dining, food preparation or telling the captain how to steer the boat. Another feature that I REALLY like on the Lazzara is a built-in, dedicated office below deck. This is MUST on any boat for me and few full size yachts offer this accommodation.

Probably one of the most pronounced differences between the boats and one that is absolutely mandatory (again, this is a personal opinion), is the hard covered flybridge on the Lazzara. It is a very large, seamless addition that compliments the 68-S quite nicely adding protection and giving the boat a unique signature.

And the last thing that comes to mind is Lazzara’s aft tender garage. Actually, this boat accommodates two tenders; one in the garage and the other on the flybridge aft deck. This gives you a choice of water toys on demand. with the push of a button for the garage stowed tender!

From a technical and maintenance perspective, one feature I really like is Lazzara’s Seacheck program, wherein engineers do annual surveys of all operating data and compare them to each yacht’s operating efficiency. The Integrated Shipboard Information System, or ISIS, is a computerized program that monitors a 64-point check of engines, pumps, stabilizers, etc. and logs the data similar to an airplane “black box” to trace prior functions. Data from each yacht is downloaded directly to the yard, where it is checked every week by on-staff technicians to catch potential problems.

Both of these yachts are extremely popular in the market and choosing between them may come down to personal taste… and cutting the best deal you can.
