First steel Mazu 92 yacht under construction

7 April 2021By Miranda Blazeby

Turkish builder Mazu Yachts has begun construction on the first 28m model from its steel Mazu 92 DS series.

The model, which marks Mazu’s first foray into steel construction, is the first of a new semi-displacement series which will be followed by a 112 DS and 132 DS model.

The steel keel of the first semi-custom unit has now been laid and delivery to the yacht’s Turkish owner is scheduled for summer 2022.

Designed inside and out by Red Yacht Design, the yacht will feature a superstructure constructed from carbon composite to reduce weight and keep the centre of gravity low.

The exterior design features a raised pilothouse forward, vertical bow and two-tone hull design.

Inside, accommodation is for a total of eight guests in an owner’s suite located in the widebody section of the main deck forward, two single cabins forward and a full-beam VIP.

The large swim platform aft is large enough to stow a tender of Jet Ski while underway. When moored or at anchor, this platform can be extended thanks to fold-down bulwarks. Glass sliding transom doors lead into a beach club area, complete with a bar.

Speaking about the new model, Mazu founder and designer Halit Yukay said: “I think we’ve created something amazing that will shake up the marketplace. The interior volumes and full-height windows make you feel like you’re on a yacht that is at least 10 metres longer.”
