The open motor yacht designed by Tanju Özelgin is due for delivery in early 2020 and will then officially debut at Cannes Yachting Festival

The first Mazu 82, a 24.5-metre open motor yacht, is rapidly approaching completion at the Mazu Yachts shipyard near Istanbul, less than 12 months after the contract was signed with a Turkish owner.

Once launched, the Mazu 82 will represent the Turkish brand’s flagship after the successful introduction of its 38, 42 and 52-foot models.

Built of a carbon composite in a lightweight sandwich construction for maximum rigidity and strength, the Mazu 82 combines a clean profile, expansive decks and large hull windows with the outstanding performance, efficiency, handling and manoeuvrability provided by its triple Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system (1,000hp each).

For the first time, Mazu Yachts has collaborated with a dedicated stylist, the celebrated Turkish designer Tanju Özelgin, for the interior layout and design. Working closely with the shipyard, Özelgin has optimised the generous volume and large hull windows to create a vibe of understated elegance.

Combining subtle textures, muted colours, and both direct and indirect light, this vibe resonates throughout the yacht. A full-beam master suite amidships features a spacious private bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe. There are two additional staterooms: an ensuite VIP cabin forward and a double stateroom off the passageway.
