In this series of articles, we take a look at the best brokerage deals currently on the market, as judged by our very own editors. What, Why, Where and Who will form the basis of the articles. This week, we have taken a closer look at the 20.27 metre sailing yacht Mazu.
What is on offer?
She was built by the experienced builder of Hoek designed boats Metur Yacht and completed in 2014 under supervision of a highly experienced and involved owner and the architects of Hoek Design. The 20.27 metre sloop Mazu has been designed by the acclaimed Dutch studio Hoek Design Naval Architects and built to conform with RCD essential requirements and ISO standards.
She accommodates up to eight guests over four welcoming double cabins, as well as one crew member. Her interior spaces which are fashioned on New England styling bathed in abundant natural light as a result of her low-profile wraparound glass superstructure, which also works to increase the sense of openness inside.
One of her stand out features is her spacious cockpit, measuring over four metres in length and providing a comfortable and sophisticated dining space for up to eight guests. In the aft section a large diameter wheel and electric winches are found, which allow the sails to be trimmed without having to leave the helm. Aft of the helm station is an inviting sunbathing and relaxation area.
Why do we think this is such a great deal?
Her hull is cold-moulded red cedar encapsulated in glass epoxy with carbon reinforcements meaning a very stiff, light and maintenance free hull – her deck is composite (Corecell M foam) with carbon reinforcements which are covered with a 12 mm teak deck with flush carbon hatches. A three metre T-shaped keel, a carbon rudder and a full carbon rig package including a V boom & EC6 rigging from Southern Spars, as well as a long waterline and medium displacement, result in an exciting, stiff and fast yacht that is consistently a pleasure to sail.
Mazu has recently undergone a substantial price drop of €175,000, offering a unique opportunity to purchase a quality, relatively new vessel at a fraction of her new-build value. She has been stored ashore during the winters under a full cover and her condition is “as new”.
Where is she right now?
Mazu is currently located in Bodrum, Turkey.
Who to call?
The yacht is listed for sale by Hoek Brokerage at an asking price of €1,475,000.
