Project: Mazu 52 Hard Top

Hot on the heels of the 38 Open White Pearl, showcased by Mazu Yachts at Boot Dusseldorf in January, the Turkish boutique boat builder is delighted to announce a brand new model: the dynamic 52 Hard Top.  The 52 Hard Top is built of carbon composite in a lightweight sandwich construction for rigidity and strength. Following very much in the vein of its Open models in terms of styling and performance, the extra length overall offers more interior volume and deck space, plus the addition of an open-sided, carbon composite hardtop for protection from the summer sun. In short, it continues the handcrafted, luxury yacht feel of the Mazu range with enhanced on-board comfort for extended overnight cruising.  In fact, the hull is just 15 centimeters higher than the 38 Open, but the interior layout provides for two guest cabins with separate bathroom facilities and a spacious dinette/lounge area. This is in addition to the large fore-deck, protected cockpit, and open aft deck and swim platform. Powered by twin Volvo 600hp engines with IPS pod propulsion, the Mazu 52 Hard Top will have a top speed of around 37 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.  The first 52 Hard Top, already in build for a client at the Mazu shipyard in Istanbul, will be launched at the end of May before undergoing extensive sea trials. The new model will then make its international debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2018.
