The new 12m Mazu 42 walk-around has a beam of 3.7m. The centre console, protected by a real modern superstructure, leaves room for two lateral walk-arounds.

Halit Yukay, head designer and owner of the yard, gave the 42 a freeboard that allows movement on deck in safety, but still keeping her profile with military twist overtones.

The sun bathing area is located near the stern, while a V-shaped settee situates forward the cockpit and a second settee forward of the console.

The size of the aft platform has allowed a seaside terrace. The mobile kitchen is equipped with Gaggenau appliances.

The yacht’s eight-ton displacement and special hull shape take full advantage of the propulsion system: two 435hp Volvo Penta IPS 600’s, giving the Mazu 42’ Walk-around a top speed of 47 knots, with a cruising speed of 32 knots.

Her interiors are characterised by a headroom with minimalist styling featuring expert use of Alcantara and leather trim created by the Italian company Foglizzo. Forward the 42 walk-around is a large queen size bed with a settee to port and a large bathroom with all the features to starboard.

Italian lighting company Cantalupi is responsible for the lighting both on and below deck.
