Two superyacht tenders on display at Quai Jarlan in the new Tenders Area!
Mazu 38 Open
The all-new Mazu 38 open impresses with her dynamic design and unparalleled interior and exterior space ampleness and comfort. This unit has an open plan layout with dining space “al-fresco” in the aft deck, an en-suite bathroom with separate full standing shower.
The hull colors are customizable and the owner is free to choose from a variety of luxurious fabrics and finishes to use for the interiors.
To maximize guests comfort, the boat has two galleys with Gaggenau appliances both inside and outside, equipped with cooker, grill, microwave and oven, along with sink,fridge, deep freezer and ample storage for crockery and provisions. A bimini, aft deck shower and swim platform with a retractable swim ladder on the transom, provide added cruising benefits.
The hand laid carbon Mazu 38 hull provides extra strength and lightness to the boat. When equipped with Volvo IPS 400 the top speed reaches 36 knots, and with more powerful Volvo IPS 600, the Mazu 38 can run at up to 45 knots.
Mazu 42 Walk-Around
The largest Mazu’s model to be shown, the new 42 walk-around, which was delivered early August 2017, has an overall length of 11.99 meters and a maximum beam of 3.7 meters.
The center console, perfectly protected by a real modern superstructure, leaves room for two ample lateral walk-arounds. The yacht has a freeboard that is high enough to allow safe movement on deck even while at sea, in combination with a sportive profile and some military twist overtones.
On-deck comfort is assured by the ample sun bathing area near the stern, while forward the cockpit is complete with a V-shaped settee and a second settee forward of the console. The size of the aft platform has allowed the yard to create a true seaside terrace, ideal not only while at anchor but also when moored to the jetty, facilitating coming aboard and going ashore. The presence of a mobile kitchen with Gaggenau appliances ensures leisurely and pleasurable times when at anchor.
Two 435 hp Volvo Penta IPS 600’s give the Mazu 42 walk-around a top speed of 47 knots, with a cruising speed of 32 knots.
