The hand and eye of Ian Ombres are evident in Phoenix. Ian served as director of naval architecture and engineering for Project Phoenix. Ian is a graduate of Florida State University and Landing School where he studied yacht design and naval architecture. Ian also designed yachts for Chris Craft and Lazzara Yachts.

Designer style is Joe Lazzara’s DNA. The scion of the Lazzara family, Joe is a visionary leader representing the third generation of Lazzaras revolutionizing the yachting industry with Project Phoenix. In 2006, Joe’s LSX Quad 75 introduced joystick control with a tight turning radius for megayachts, incorporating the split level interior layout that his grandfather, Vince, employed for Gulfstar’s popular sailboats and trawlers. His vessels turn heads and are known for sleek style, panache’ and a natural, seamless incorporation of the galley into the saloon. This is the kind of social space a big Italian family prefers for entertaining.
A graduate of the College of Charleston, Joe is president of Lazzara Yachts Group and Lazzara Ombres Architects.
