First look: inside Waterlily, the first 28m Mazu 92 DS model

Red Yacht Design has offered a first look inside the 28.5-metre Waterlily – the first unit in Mazu Yachts' 92 DS series and a BOAT International Design & Innovation Award finalist.

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

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

Red Yacht Design is responsible for both the exterior and interior of the new model, whose superstructure is constructed from carbon composite to reduce weight and keep the centre of gravity as low as possible. 

Speaking previously 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."

Inside, accommodation is for a total of eight guests including a full-beam owner’s suite located in the widebody section of the main deck forward, two single cabins forward and a full-beam VIP. In an "unusual" move for a yacht of this size, the crew also have their own service stairs. Interiors are airy and light, complemented by a neutral colour palette with pops of pastel green.

In terms of amenities, the 160GT yacht is home to a large swim platform that is substantial enough to stow a tender or Jet Ski while underway. When moored or at anchor, this platform can be extended thanks to fold-down bulwarks. Instead of a traditional transom, glass sliding transom doors lead into a beach club area, complete with a bar.

The Mazu 92 DS is the first of the builder's steel hull series to integrate an IPS propulsion system and according to the yard, is the "first brand in the world to achieve this" with a triple engine system of Volvo Penta IPS 1050, each delivering 800HP.

This follows the reveal of Mazu Yachts' 40.2-metre flagship, the 132 DS. Highlights include a "panoramic" owner's terrace, dip pool and extensive flybridge.
