92 DS steel construction with Mazu Yachts

After winning over an international clientele for its fast planing dayboats built of lightweight carbon composites, Mazu Yachts in Turkey 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. 

“In my professional opinion, for reasons of safety, comfort and resale value, a displacement hull should be built of steel or aluminium,” says Halit Yukay, brand founder and head designer. “As with our carbon composite models, we wanted to offer the market something new, and if you look at the exterior lines, I think you’ll agree the 92 DS is certainly different!”

The steel keel of the first semi-custom 92 DS has been laid, but Mazu is drawing on its experience of working in carbon composite for the superstructure to keep the weight down and the centre of gravity low. 

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, requiring close collaboration with Volvo Penta and Profjord in Sweden for the engineering and naval architecture.

The Crossover-style exterior profile by Red Yacht Design features a raised pilothouse positioned forward in order to maximise the interior volumes. The dramatic vertical bow adds visual impact and increases the waterline length. The two-tone hull design introduces a striking new aesthetic.

The owner’s suite in Red Yacht Design vision is located 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 very large swim platform with room for stowing a tender and Jet Ski while under way. The bulwarks fold down on either side to increase the platform area.

Glass sliding transom doors lead into a relaxing beach club area with bar that can be arranged according to client preference (there is also interior access from the main salon). Forward are two twin-single guest cabins and a full-beam VIP suite.

There are two crew cabins with shared bathroom in the bow. Unusally for the size of yacht, the crew have their own service stairs.  

There is more lounging space, as well as dining facilities and the exterior helm station shaded by the hardtop on the fly deck. 

“Once again, I think we’ve created something amazing that will shake up the marketplace,” says Yukay. “The interior volumes and full-height windows make you feel like you’re on a yacht that is at least 10 metres longer.”Mazu Yachts announces its entry into steel construction with the 92 DSMazu Yachts announces its entry into steel construction with the 92 DS
