Catering to some of the most affluent demographics in the world, it’s frankly unsurprising that the evolution of designs within the luxury yacht industry occurs at such a rapid pace. One of the latest and most noteworthy trends to emerge in recent years has been medium-sized vessels containing interiors which, when viewed from certain interior angles, can legitimately pass for on-land luxury residences. And few ships encapsulate this better than Mazu Yacht’s new Eighty Two model.
Spanning 79’ in length, displacing 45 tons, and sporting a 19.3’ beam, the 82 was designed to offer the experience of a full-size superyacht in a more easy-to-manage (and less exorbitant to operate) package. The Rina CE A-class ship also features an epoxy system composite carbon-reinforced hull material and is powered by a trio of Volvo Penta IPS 1200 engines that generate a cool 900hp and enables the vessel to reach speeds of up to 40 knots (or 46mph). And while the 82 is plenty striking from the outside, what really sets it apart is its immaculately-detailed interior and cabin, consisting of an upper enclosed area for entertaining with open and closable windows and skylights, with a modern staircase leading down to a swanky lounge and master suite.
