Mazu reveals first interior renderings of Mazu 92 DS model

31 March 2023 • Written by Holly Overton

Turkish builder Mazu Yachts has offered a glimpse inside the first 28.5-metre model from its steel Mazu 92 DS series as construction nears completion. 

Due to hit the water later this year, the model marks Mazu’s first foray into steel construction and is the first of a new semi-displacement series which will soon be followed by a 112 DS and 132 DS model. 

The hull was rolled out of the shed earlier this year

Red Yacht Design was called on to create both the exterior and interior of the new model, which has a beam of 6.7 metres and a draft of 1.9 metres. Its superstructure is constructed from carbon composite to reduce weight and keep the centre of gravity as low as possible.

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 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 terms of amenities, the Mazu 92 DS boasts a large swim platform which 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. Glass sliding transom doors lead into a beach club area, complete with a bar.

Other features include al fresco dining for up to eight guests on the aft deck, a backlit exterior staircase connecting the main deck, upper deck and beach club, and an asymmetric lounge with an L-shaped sofa to port and armchairs to starboard. The interior makes use of a neutral palette with light wood parquet flooring and occasional pops of blue.

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.”

"The most exciting feature of the DS series is the use of three IPS 1050 Volvo machines in a displacement steel body and the exciting innovations created in the layout," added Yukay. The model has an anticipated top speed of 22 knots.

Proving its ability to balance multiple projects at once, Mazu has also kickstarted construction on a second 92 DS, which has been started on spec, and announced that designs for the first 112 DS are in the works.

Meanwhile, designs for the new 112DS will be completed in the summer and the model is scheduled to go into production this year.
