First look: Mazu Yachts teases 34m 112 DS steel model

18 May 2022• Written by Holly Overton

Turkish builder Mazu Yachts has offered a first glimpse of its 34 metre 112 DS model. The design is the second in the shipyard's displacement series and will be the larger sibling of the 92DS, the first hull of which is currently under construction and due for delivery in 2023. 

Mazu Yachts is known for its composite, fast planing dayboats and the DS series marks the shipyard's entry into steel construction. Turkish studio Red Yacht Design was called in to create the exterior for the 112 DS after working on the smaller model.

The hull of the first Mazu 92 DS was completed last week

Only a line drawing has been released so far. Much like its smaller sibling, the profile of the Mazu 112 DS features a raised pilothouse and a vertical bow. The walk-around section of the superstructure will house the main saloon, which will be illuminated by full-height windows.

Other features of the 92DS include a swim platform with folding bulwarks and sliding glass transom doors leading to a beach club area that can also be accessed via the main saloon. The open aft deck can house a tender and Jet Ski while underway; at anchor with the tender launched the area transforms into a sun lounge.

"While maintaining all the characteristic and aesthetic features of the series, we used all the layout advantages that IPS provided us by using 4xIPS 1050 Volvo machines in this project and we did not compromise on performance."

Mazu Yachts and Red Yacht Design started work on the 112DS at the beginning of 2022 and is scheduled to go into production later this year. Red Yacht Design co-founder, Fatih Surekli, said: "While maintaining all the characteristic and aesthetic features of the series, we used all the layout advantages that IPS provided us by using four IPS 1050 Volvo machines in this project and we did not compromise on performance."
