Mazu Yachts in Turkey has delivered Hull No.1 of its flagship 82-footer.
The Mazu 82 is powered with triple 1,000 hp Volvo Penta IPS1350 diesels, which provide a 40-knot top-end speed and a 33-knot cruise speed, according to the builder. Mazu also reports about a 400-nautical-mile range at cruise speed.
The yacht’s sporty performance is aided, in part, to its carbon-composite sandwich construction, which helps keep the yacht’s displacement at around 110,000 pounds. The Mazu 82 also has a deep-V hull form with 19 degrees deadrise at the transom and 28 degrees at the bow.
“The hull lines of the new Mazu 82 were designed in-house to provide a perfect balance between top speed, seakeeping capability and fuel efficiency,” said Halit Yukay, lead designer and CEO of Mazu Yachts in a statement.
The Mazu 82′s profile is sinewy and linear creating sharp, well-defined lines. Cut-down bulwarks amidships enable ocean vistas from the salon. Hull-side glass helps bring in light and those salty views to the three staterooms belowdecks as well. The glass superstructure enables nearly 360-degree views from the helm and salon. The builder says the windshield is tempered and laminated, and “bulletproof.”
One of the Mazu 82′s custom features for this owner is “terraced steps” from the cockpit to the swim platform. The design allowed for a mini-mezzanine just above the swim platform, creating a place for cocktails after a swim or for keeping an eye on the kids when they’re in the water.
According to Mazu, the owner has taken delivery and is currently cruising his yacht, and he is even planning on using it as a floating office this winter.
In addition to the 82, Mazu’s model lineup includes 38-, 42-, 52- and 62-foot models.
