New Mazu 52HT: successful debut at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show

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.
The Mazu Yachts design team, lead by CEO Halit Yukay, made sure that the new Mazu 52HT carries the DNA of the brand's previous models but in a much larger scale. The flagship has the distinctive muscular cheeks, rough edges and linear long windows that emphasize powerful and beasty, yet minimalistic and elegant exterior look.
While the cockpit with four ergonomic seats and cosy coffee tables is well protected by the windglass and hardtop, there are two spacious outside areas on the bow and aft, where guests can relax under the sun and close to the sea to feel maximum contact with the outside environment. To achieve this feeling, the galley was also put on the main deck.
The new 52HT represents the ideal cruiser or a megayacht tender for short trips with a possibility to stay in complete comfort over night. The interior is beautifully made and hand crafted with premium leather (Luxuriously soft Foglizzo leathers), woods and natural stones. She features a full beam master cabin in the bow with a huge bathroom (the bathroom features 5mm Bianca marble veneers atop a lightweight aluminium substrate) and an additional second cabin to travel with family or friends.
Mazu 52HT delivers a superb performance in total comfort thanks to efficient hull shape and advanced double Volvo Penta IPS 800 engines ((600hp each). As her streamlined sleek profile suggests, the new yacht has a very sporty character and can reach the top speed of up to 38 knots
and the cruising is around 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.”
The base price of the 52HT starts at €890,000.
