After a build period lasting just 8 months, the first 52HT is almost ready for her launch in mid-July
Following sea trails and a quick delivery to OMV, Mazu’s exclusive European dealer based in France, the 52HT will make her debut at the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show
“The major construction work is complete and the interiors are well advanced,”says Halit Yukay, Mazu CEO and lead designer. “We are just awaiting delivery of the Opacmare Transformer aft platform, after which we will start the engine installation and the painting process.”
The 52HT is built of carbon composite in a lightweight sandwich construction for rigidity and strength. Offering generous interior volume and deck space, plus an open-sided, carbon composite hardtop for protection from the summer sun, the new model continues the handcrafted, superyacht feel of the Mazu range with enhanced onboard comfort for extended overnight cruising.
In addition to the large foredeck, protected cockpit, open aft deck and swim platform, the interior layout provides for two guest cabins with separate bathroom facilities and a spacious dinette/lounge area.
Luxuriously soft Foglizzo leathers appear throughout the interior and the restrooms feature 5mm Bianca marble veneers atop a lightweight aluminium substrate.
Powered by twin Volvo IPS 800 engines (600hp each), the 52HT will have a top speed of 36 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.
“The idea was to develop a 52-footer with the space, performance, and interior comfort and finish of a much bigger boat,”says Halit Yukay. “Combined with her carbon construction and low centre of gravity for optimal stability and seakeeping, we believe this new addition to the Mazu fleet represents excellent value in terms of quality and price. We have great hopes for the 52HT at the coming boat shows!”
The base price of the 52HT starts at €890,000.
