Dick Lazzara is known as a master of space utilization. With the LSX, he added to this legend by removing the deck between the upper and lower interior levels, facilitating a completely open floor plan with soaring ceilings that permits total continuity. In doing so, he’s created the waterborne counterpart to the “city loft”. No matter where you stand on this boat, you are a part of the party. The interior views are vast and relatively unobstructed.The upper salon and pilothouse will appeal to every generation.
The helm is a clean, modern work of art that is abstract in nature. It truly represents how computers can be smartly integrated into our surroundings while running processes to meet our needs. The only analogue instruments to be found are in the form of simulated gauges on the LSX’s flat panels. These screens are housed within a power adjustable instrument panel that can be angled for the best line-of-sight or to reduce glare. Lazzara has done their homework on how an express cruiser will be used. There are dozens of these examples throughout the yacht, such as a pass-thru indoor/outdoor bar, or the teak floors leading to a dayhead immediately within the salon. Other examples include tender launching at the touch of a button, a hydraulic garage door that grants instant access to the dive shop or even the underwater cameras and lights built into the hull for watching aquatic life.
About the only thing missing is an aerial tow bar for connecting a ski line. At this hull’s planing speed, it might well be the ultimate wakeboard boat! The shape of most express cruisers comes at a price… the sacrifice of accommodation. Because the IPS power plants consume about as much space as a typical generator, Dick had a dilemma… what to do with all the extra space? Theatre Room? Basketball court? Driving range? In the end, he added another stateroom. One master, one forward VIP and two doubles at midship, to either side of a central corridor. These two guest rooms are unique because they are separated by electronic privacy glass that can switch from clear to frosted. In clear mode, guests have unobstructed views to port AND starboard of the hull. In frost mode, they grant complete privacy for each room.
