In Japanese philosophy there are five elements, of which Mizu or water is one. It represents all things fluid and flowing but also relates to adaptability, flexibility and magnetism. Renamed by her current owner in 2013 and extensively refit in 2016, the 53m MIZU represents many characteristics attributed to her name. Her striking and almost military exterior exudes character and adventure. Her contemporary interior spaces are calm yet vibrant and an impressive range of entertainment features, including an on deck jacuzzi and basketball court, invoke guest interaction and energy. With an exhilarating top speed of 28 knots and an impressive long range cruising capability, this ocean-going, transoceanic yacht lives up to her name.
