Built of a lightweight carbon composite, the Mazu 82 combines a clean profile, expansive decks and large hull windows with the outstanding performance, efficiency and handling. 

The celebrated Turkish designer Tanju Özelgin created the interior layout and design of the Mazu 82. Working closely with the shipyard, Özelgin optimised the generous volume and large hull windows, combining subtle textures, muted colours, and both direct and indirect light to create a vibe of understated elegance. 

The end result is an interior design that perfectly complements the edgy exterior styling of the Mazu 82, designed in-house by the shipyard’s founder, Halit Yukay: “The interior and the exterior should never be defined as two different aspects but should be seen as a whole as one is the extension of the other,” refers Yukay. “Both should create a coherent unity and reflect the main mood and feelings the designer intended.”

The exterior profile of the 82-footer is characterised by the flush main deck with no steps and the angular lines of the all-glass deckhouse. Wherever possible the shipyard has used one-piece glass panes, which meant increasing their thickness in accordance with class requirements. 

Hence the tempered and laminated windshield is over 22mm thick and with a PVB interlayer is literally bulletproof. The glass is also extra clear to eliminate distortion and reflections. Three openable ‘portholes’ at the front of the superstructure provide natural ventilation while under way. With its sliding aluminium roof, custom-made by OPAC in Italy, the main deck has an airy, loft-like feel.

On special request of the owner, Mazu modified the aft deck design to include terraced steps leading down to the swim platform. These steps function as built-in furniture so guests can sit down (they are wide enough to even lie down) and still converse with other guests. 

“Multifunctional design was very important for the owner,” continues Yukay. “In fact, the open foredeck has three different uses: as a sunbathing area, a dining area for 12 people, and a screen can be set up to turn it into an open-air cinema.”

Unique interior design 

Tanju Özelgin is a designer renowned for its ability to transmit meaning in design through subtle and abstract uses of form, symbol and material. He is widely recognised for his distinct style that is contemporary and abstract yet deeply aware of the fundamentals of human nature and environment.  

These same signature qualities distinguish the interior design aboard the new Mazu 82. 

“The main challenge with yacht interiors is that the space mostly never stands still and is constantly surrounded by water, says the Turkish designer, who aimed to create an onboard ambience more in tune with land-based architecture. “This aspect will direct your decisions regarding which materials to use, the weight and scale of every piece of furniture, and whether or not the furniture is anchored to the decks or built-in.” 

A major challenge for all yacht designers and builders is to draw in as much natural light as possible into the interior. In this regard, the Mazu 82 boasts very large deckhouse windows and strip glazing in the hull. In particular, the sliding sunroof, custom-made by OPAC in Italy, and 9-sqm windshield of ultra-clear laminated and tempered glass, lend the interior an airy, loft-like feel. 

“The space has to be as compact and light as possible without losing the illusion of feeling at home or in a cosy hotel,” says the interior designer. “This was one of our key aspects during the design phase of the yacht: to create a space that feels more as if you were in your own house with all the familiarity and comfort that comes with it.” 

Artificial lighting is just as important as natural illumination and has to be both functional and atmospheric. For this reason, a bespoke lighting system was developed for the Mazu 82.

“Lighting is an important tool for the designer to create an atmosphere and mood, which further improves the design of the space,” says Özelgin. “It is an extension of the feelings the designer wants to express and should always be considered as an reflection of the overall design.”

To create a chic yet warm and inviting feeling, walnut and leather has been used for the furniture – exclusively built by Mazu – while the walls are decorated with metallic finishes and teak paneling that has been textured and stained grey. The textiles and carpets were specially designed for the boat, as were the doors made of bronzed tempered glass and the stainless steel hardware that has been treated using thin-film deposit (PVD) techniques in the same bronze hue. 

“The chosen materials are as light as possible and the textures give a sense of spaciousness with a touch of warmth”  – says Özelgin.

The yacht is fitted with a state-of-the-art audio system (JL Audio for the exterior and Dali for the interior), which meant that close attention was paid to noise damping. Leather and Alcantara cladding and upholstery throughout help to mute unwanted sound. 

The wet surfaces are of a special synthetic material that has a soft leather-like finish, while the bathroom faucets and accessories are by luxury hardware brand Gessi. The high-end galley equipment was supplied by Gaggenau.

– Two superyacht tenders on display at Quai Jarlan and new Tenders Area
– 38 soft top, launched last June, now delivered in South of France
– 42 walk-around, to be delivered early August

Turkish boutique yacht designer and builder Mazu Yachts confirms two new superyacht tenders to be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017 (September 27-30, 2017).

Mazu Yachts will show two new “sexy” models: 38 soft top and 42 walk-around. Both are equally perfect overnight cruisers or superyacht tenders thanks to yard’s ability in customization of style, layout and decor.

MAZU 38 SOFT TOP
All-new Mazu 11.9m/38′ soft top has been delivered to his lucky owner in Saint Tropez this July 2017.

Designed by Halit Yukay, the yacht has been sold to a European client. He desired to achieve a real “military look” able to combine latest luxury superyacht tender amenities and trendy elegance.

The owner of Mazu 38 soft top is an “Armani style enthusiast”. The yard so decided to use as many different textures of leathers and fabrics as possible – all from Foglizzo and a number of mirrors to give the maximum depth interiors perception, like in a loft condo.

Halit Yukay also designed a fantastic indoors lighting mood from the Italian supplier Cantalupi to enhance Mazu 38 dramatic feeling. New Mazu 38 soft top is so equipped with two Volvo Penta IPS 400 engines and the boat claim to reach a top speed of 34 knots.

MAZU 42 WALK-AROUND
The largest Mazu’s model to be shown, the new 42 walk-around, to be delivered early August 2017, has an overall length of 11.99 meters and a maximum beam of 3.7 meters. The center console, perfectly protected by a real modern superstructure, leaves room for two ample lateral walk-arounds. The yacht has a freeboard that is high enough to allow safety movement on deck even while at sea in combination with sportive profile with and military twist overtones.

On-deck comfort is assured by the ample sun bathing area near the stern, while forward the cockpit is complete with a V-shaped settee and a second settee forward of the  console. The size of the aft platform has allowed the yard to create a true seaside terrace, ideal not only  while  at  anchor  but  also  when  moored  to  the  jetty,  facilitating  coming  aboard and going ashore. The presence of a mobile kitchen with Gaggenau appliances ensures leisurely and pleasurable times when at anchor.

Two 435 hp Volvo Penta IPS 600 give the Mazu 42 walk-around a top speed of 47 knots, with a cruising speed of 32 knots.
