Mazu Yachts debuts its first superyacht tender.

Turkish boutique yacht designer and builder Mazu Yachts debuted the all-new Mazu 38, a superyacht tender, at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show. The company has been designing, producing and marketing luxury ‘hard-top and open’ motor yachts since 2011 but this is its first foray into the superyacht tender space.

Though designed to accompany a superyacht through its travels, the Mazu 38 suits the role of day boat, too. Dynamically designed, the interior and exterior spaces provide ample comfort for guests. The deck and interior layouts are fully customisable as per the owner’s demands. The unit on display at the Monaco Yacht Show had an open plan layout with dining space “al-fresco” on the aft deck, an en-suite bathroom with separate full standing shower and additional crew cabin.

To maximise guests’ comfort, the boat is appointed with two galleys for dining indoors or outdoors. Both contain Gaggenau appliances and are equipped with a cooker, grill, microwave and oven, sink, fridge, deep freezer and ample storage for crockery and provisions. After dining, swimmers trying to work off calories can climb back aboard via a ladder and rinse off on the Mazu 38’s swim platform, with the pull-out shower head.

The builder’s bigger boats follow cold-moulded construction practices, the tender uses carbon fibre for her hull. The lighter weight assists speed, which is said to be 30 knots at cruise and 45 knots maximum. Those speeds come from twin 300-hp Volvo Penta IPS 400s, though IPS 500s and IPS 600s are also available. And if all this luxury is making one uneasy, rest assured that IPS is proven to emit lower emissions and consume less fuel.
