Turkey’s Mazu Yachts has announced the sale of Hull No 1 of its latest model, the Mazu 82, to a Turkish owner. At 82ft, it is the company’s largest yacht yet and comes on the heels of its successful 38ft, 42ft and 52ft models.

Designed by the yard’s founder Halit Yukay, the Mazu 82 will have the company’s signature expansive open decks and three staterooms. With large hullside windows and triple Volvo Penta IPS power, it will make the most of Mazu’s carbon composite sandwich construction.

Mazu Yachts worked with Turkish designer Tanju Özelgin, founder of TO Studio and Parlak Kirmizi, to create a unique feel in the spaces on the Mazu 82. This is the first time Mazu has used a dedicated interior designer to optimise the yacht’s onboard spaces, while also creating a vibe that’s understated and elegant.

The amidships, full-beam master will combine subtle textures, muted colours, and both direct and indirect light to create a relaxing escape to solitude for the owners. A private master head will have a roomy shower, fine fixtures and a walk-in closet. Two additional staterooms, including an en-suite VIP forward and a double stateroom off the passageway, will round out the guest accommodations.

The engine room offers space to service the triple Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system (1350-1.000hp x3), which is expected to offer excellent performance and cruising efficiency as well as easy handling and manoeuvrability around the docks.

The Mazu 82 will be built in carbon composite in a lightweight sandwich construction. It is due for delivery by the end of summer 2019.
