ADVERTISEMENT

Avanti Ocean Group, consisting of private investor Geoff Bond and third-generation Lazzara family members Joe and Steve Lazzara, purchased the assets of Lazzara Yachts, including the intellectual property and molds.

The new company will do business as Lazzara Custom Yachts and Tampa Marine Services. This will include offering new yacht production from 64-130 feet and the start of service/refit work with a 300-ton travel lift.

Avanti Ocean Group has located to a seven-acre facility in Tampa, across the street from the old Lazzara manufacturing facility. Design of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is under way.

“Financially speaking, a debt-free company with investment capital puts us in a position to develop new products and take care of our customers in a way that historically made our family so successful,” said Steve Lazzara, chief financial officer of Lazzara Custom Yachts. Joe Lazzara is president.

Lazzara Yachts was established in 1990 by Joe Lazzara’s father, Dick, and his uncle, Brad. It launched more than 170 yachts. Dick Lazzara’s other son, Rich, started Lazzara Lenton Yachts about two years ago.
