The Turkish yacht builder Mazu Yachts has announced its entry into steel construction with the 92 DS, the first of a new semi-displacement series that will be followed by a 112 DS and 132 DS model. The steel keel of the first semi-custom 92 DS has been laid and the yacht is expected to be delivered to her Turkish owner in the summer of 2022.
Mazu Yachts has joined forces with Volvo Penta and Profjord in Sweden to create the naval architecture of the vessel. The yacht will be powered by triple Volvo Penta IPS 1050 drives for a top speed of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots. This is the first time IPS propulsion has been installed on a steel-hulled yacht.
Turkish multi-winning studio Red Yacht Design is responsible for the crossover-style exterior profile of the 92 DS that features a raised pilothouse positioned forward in order to maximize the interior volumes. The dramatic vertical bow adds visual impact and increases the waterline length.
The owner’s suite is positioned in the widebody section of the main deck forward with a bathroom in the bow. The walk-around section of the superstructure houses the main salon illuminated by full-height windows and the galley. There is al fresco dining for a full complement of 8 guests and sun loungers on the open aft deck. Stairs on both sides lead down to a large swim platform with room for stowing a tender and Jet Ski while underway.
Glass sliding transom doors lead into a relaxing beach club area with a bar that can be arranged according to client preference. Forward are two twin-single guest cabins and a full-beam VIP suite. There are two crew cabins with a shared bathroom in the bow.
