Across the world from the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in China, Maritime Concept and Construction’s (MCC) new 46-meter motor yacht MAZU was just launched. Superyacht Mazu is the second yacht in the Marco Polo series, built at the Cheoy Lee Shipyard in China. Literally speaking, in Chinese, the word Mazu (also spelled Matsu) means ‘mother ancestor’.
The Marco Polo series of megayachts are appropriately named as they are luxury explorer or expedition style motor yachts which are designed and built to travel the world, not to merely sit at the dock. Motor yacht MAZU’s hull color is a magnificent Burgundy red, in contrast to Marco Polo’s distinctive green hull.
The megayacht MAZU has a 9.20m beam, draws 2.9m, has a cruising range of 7000nm @11knots and 3300 nm at 13 knots. Like her sister ship Marco Polo she has two Caterpillar propulsion engines, including one main and one auxiliary.
Project manager, Albrecht Buchner, and naval architect, Kasia Milewska will be aboard Marco Polo at the Cheoy Lee display of yachts at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show showing the latest photographs of M/Y MAZU on the water.
