Built from carbon composite
Turkish yard Mazu Yachts has revealed a new model: the 52 Hard Top.
The 52 HT is built of carbon composite in a lightweight sandwich construction for rigidity and strength. “We’ve developed a bigger boat with a sleek and aggressive profile to keep the centre of gravity low for optimal stability and seakeeping, while also offering exceptional comfort and performance,” says Halit Yukay, Mazu CEO and lead designer.
The 15,7m vessel is just 15 cm higher than the 38 Open model 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 foredeck, protected cockpit, and open aft deck and swim platform.
She is powered by twin Volvo IPS 800 engines of 600hp each for a top speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.
