Turkish boutique yacht designer and builder Mazu Yachts prepares for a debut at the BOOT Dusseldorf 2018 (January 20-28), presenting for the first time at the German show their Mazu 38 Open White Pearl, perfect both as an overnight cruiser or superyacht tender, thanks the yard’s ability to customize styling, layout and decor.
38 Open White Pearl like all the models from Mazu Yachts are designed by the CEO of the yard Halit Yukay, with his years of practical experience. “As a designer I feel very lucky because I am a professional sailor and captain. I have tried and sailed a number of boats and have had lots of good and bad experiences at sea. As a result we have engineered a boat that can make you feel safe and strong on board in any weather. This is the main idea behind Mazu Yachts”.
ELEGANCE ON BOARD
The new Mazu 38 Open White Pearl impresses with her dynamic design and unparalleled interior and exterior space ampleness and comfort. This unit has an open plan layout with dining space “al-fresco” in the aft deck, an en-suite bathroom with separate full standing shower. The hull colors are customizable as well as an owner is free to choose from a variety of luxurious fabrics and finishes to use for the interiors. The layout offers a configuration with two king size beds, one forward and the other amidships; the deck layout guarantees sufficient heights to easily move around. The yard’s attention to detailing and styling is enhanced by widespread use of Alcantara.
“38 Open White Pearl is the first and only boat we have built in white color to date” - said Halit Yukay - “White stands for elegance and purity. This was the idea behind the design. A white hull makes much easier to keep the boat clean”.
To maximize guests comfort, the boat has two galleys with Gaggenau appliances both inside and outside, equipped with cooker, grill, microwave and oven, along with sink, fridge, deep freezer and ample storage for crockery and provisions. A bimini, aft deck shower and swim platform with a retractable swim ladder on the transom, provide added cruising benefits.
The hand laid carbon Mazu 38 hull provides extra strength and lightness to the boat. When equipped with twin Volvo IPS 400 engines, top speed is 36 knots, and with the more powerful Volvo IPS 600’s, the Mazu 38 can run right up to 45 knots. The yard also offers the possibility to mount Volvo Penta IPS500 engines.
