Let’s say you are planning a boat trip to discover the hidden beaches and coves of Sardinia, or the sun-soaked islands of the Lesser Cyclades in the Aegean, or perhaps the azure coastal waters around Cap d’Antibes in the French Riviera; what better way to enjoy the scenery and the sun than in the privacy of your own luxury yacht, especially one that has been customized to reflect your own taste and style. This is precisely what Turkish boutique yacht designer and builder Mazu Yachts is offering with its two new, sleek, fully customizable overnight cruisers, the Mazu 38 Open and the Mazu 42 Walk-around. Combining state of the art engineering with high-end interiors and exteriors, including bespoke furniture, luxurious fabrics of your choice and hand-crafted finishes, these motor yachts are a marvel of design, technology, elegance and comfort. And if you happen to own a sizeable luxury yacht, they are also ideal superyacht tenders.
Mazu Yachts takes its name from Mazu, the Chinese sea goddess and guardian of seafarers, whose worship, dating back to the 10th century, has since spread to Chinese communities throughout Southeast Asia. Based in Yalova, Turkey, the company has been designing and producing luxury motor yachts in its high-tech shipyard on the Sea of Marmara since 2011. CEO Halit Yukay, an experienced professional sailor and captain who designs all of the company’s models, summarizes the main idea behind Mazu Yachts as an engineered combination of strength and safety, derived from his extensive experiences at sea.
