Mazu's Dashing Dayboat

The Mazu 42 ST was designed as a commuter yacht, but there's more to the this yacht than dayboating.

A Turkish owner ­commissioned the Mazu 42 ST to ferry him from the European side to the Asian side of the Bosporus Strait in Istanbul. The boat’s pronounced military-style exterior surrounds a cabin with a double berth and head, as well as wraparound seating in the bow. Twin 435 hp Volvo Penta IPS600s power this vessel to a top-end speed of 47 knots and a cruise speed of 32 knots.

Whom It's For: You don't need to be a ­Turkish tycoon to own the Mazu 42 ST. Her amenities and performance make her an option for anyone in the market for a dayboat with partial carbon-fiber construction and a 2-foot-9-inch draft that is ­shallow enough for sandbar ­hopping.   ­

Picture  This: It's a roasting summer day in Miami. All you want to do is get away from dry land and escape to Biscayne Bay's soothing aegis. Your Mazu 42 ST bobs at the dock, ready to whisk you and your friends away for a day of fun in the summertime sun.
