The concept of adding the ultimate outdoor entertainment experience aboard Lazzara Yachts was developed and designed by Joe Lazzara, Product Development Manager. It was then put into production by Sergei Mosul, Lazzara's Naval Engineer.

"We tried other brands of outdoor TVs that had an unacceptable failure rate. Pantel's set is well ventilated and has protective, salt air filtering when the TV is turned on," said Rich Lazzara, Vice President of Lazzara Yachts.
