As a “third generation” boat builder Tony was born to be in the boat business, literally. His Grandfather was a pioneer in the yachting industry and is credited with being one of the first people to build a fiberglass sailboat. Vince Lazzara went on to start several companies over his career including Columbia Yachts and later Gulf Star. Dick Lazzara, Tony’s father, went on to start world renowned Lazzara Yachts in 1990 and are still making yachts till this day. While Tony did not immediately join the family business out of college he did succumb to his passion for boats and joined Lazzara Yachts in 2004. Tony eventually was tasked with heading up Lazzara Yachts world renowned Customer Service department. It was here that Tony developed the tools to be successful as a sales person and establish customers for life.

“The most important lessons I learned came from working on the front lines everyday with the customers. It is important to establish good relationships with customers and this is something that is earned through trust and transparency.”

Tony believes his knowledge of boat building combined with his service background will make for a solid foundation when it comes to selling and advising customers on Yachts. “I hope to use my many years of being in a factory building yachts and all my service experience to help better advice customer on what vessels to buy and why."
