Unique in her engineering and performance, the new ALIA 60 is based upon the innovative Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.

SAMURAI is a high-volume and sophisticated vessel with powerful interior styling, with vast spaces for her owner and guests to enjoy. The vast interior volume is a direct result of diligent research, expertise and a committed team whose determination was to create spaces that are both functional and flexible at the same time. Amongst the main highlights of SAMURAI is her fantastic indoor and outdoor flow, resulting in appealing and refreshing spaces.

The layout is just as innovative, with guest accommodation and a spacious master suite all situated on the main deck, together with the main saloon and dining area. This arrangement creates an ambiance reminiscent of a contemporary luxury residence. The owners’ and guest accommodation have been placed forward on the main deck, with all the guest suites benefiting from full height windows, allowing for plenty of light to penetrate the interior areas and provide fabulous views.

The main saloon also offers fantastic panoramic views, thanks to the use of full-height windows that wrap around the saloon, as well as the well-detailed glass bulwarks at the side. Comparable intricate detailing has been completed for all the overhang aft railing on the rest of the decks.

The lower deck features the crew quarters, including crew accommodation, main galley and storage forward, in addition to the engine room and the tender garage aft. The elegant beach club at sea level together with a fully-equipped gymnasium have been designed for optimal access to the water activities, relaxation and fitness training, each maintaining the same high levels of comfort and flexibility, as found throughout the rest of the vessel.

The new 60-metre SAMURAI by Alia Yachts offers a great selection of luxury amenities on board, including a custom-built 7-metre Smuggler tender, as well as a 6,3-metre Smuggler tender. She has been fitted with two MTU 16V4000 M73L engines of 2,880 kW each, allowing her to reach a maximum speed of 21 knows and a range of 4,250 nautical miles.

The vessel is also equipped with a great selection of amenities and water toys, including a tender and quad ski, which are housed in the garage situated in the forward part of the hull. This arrangement allowed for a development of a fabulous beach club that provides the owners and their guests with the possibility to enjoy a lifestyle closer to the water.



Additional notable features include a 13,500-litre contra-flow swimming pool situated on the main deck aft, also featuring a waterfall and integrated Jacuzzi for relaxation, while the glass bottom of the pool allows for natal light to filter into the beach club below. Further forward on the main deck is the touch-and-go helipad, which also doubles as an outdoor cinema that seamlessly completes the luxury lifestyle aboard this magnificent vessel.



GALACTICA SUPER NOVA’s head-turning exterior design by the respected international designer and naval architects Espen Oeino, who worked on a pre-established engineering platform provided by Heesen’s in-house experts, features striking lines and beautiful appearance. The designer has been able to develop a profile that celebrates Heesen’s DNA, yet at the same time brings in new design elements that make GALACTICA SUPER NOVA a truly unique vessel in Heesen’s galaxy.

Accommodation is laid out to welcome twelve guests on board, providing comfortable six staterooms, including a main deck master suite forward, four guest cabins on the lower deck and a VIP stateroom located on the wheelhouse deck aft. The Owner has chosen the famous Dutch designer Sinot to create light, pure and well-balanaced interior with a sophisticated equilibrium between monochromic and soft colours. The ambience on board is relaxed and informal, understated and inviting, yet extremely refined. A wide range of leathers – from galuchat to very soft calfskin – form the bases of the interior decor that includes a variety of stones such as calacatta luccicoso and various onyx. The stand-out feature in the interior is the central staircase with a crystal elevator. Steel, nickel, chrome, wood and leather flow together to form a fabulous and imposing architectural helix.

Mulder Shipyard begins construction of 36m Superyacht – Their Largest Project to Date

February 19, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Mulder Shipyard has announced the start of the construction of their largest to date superyacht – the 36-metre motor yacht. The new project represents the second project built to the exacting new LY3 standard and an important milestone for this Dutch shipyard. Their latest launches and deliveries to date include the 28,65m Mulder Voyager FIREFLY and the 34-metre custom constructed SOLIS from 2015.

Mulder 36 M due for completion in 2017

“The basic concept behind this exciting new yacht is to make the most out of a volume not exceeding 300 GT,” explains yard director Dick Mulder. “This will open up excellent possibilities for both private use and chartering, with the possibility of having a relatively small crew on board when the owners are onboard.”

This striking fast displacement vessel will be constructed with full RINA MCA LY3 certification and have a transatlantic range. “She will be fitted with many features normally associated with far larger yachts in terms of both operation and design,” adds Mulder. “Special features will include a large William Dieseljet 625 tender, a beach club, two Jet Skis, a large whirlpool bathtub and plenty of sun pads. We are convinced that the end result will be truly exceptional for this size of yacht.”
Thanks to its previously successful partnership on an earlier constructions, Mulder Shipyard recommended to the customer that Claydon Reeves Design and International Yacht Register serve as owners’ representative. Van Oossanen are responsible for the naval architecture, ensuring the finest cruising characteristics.

“We enjoyed working closely with Mulder Shipyard during the fast-paced design and build development of Solis,” says Mike Reeves from Claydon Reeves Design. “We share similar values and aim to achieve a high-quality, authentic product. As a result, the new 36-metre yacht will be practical, finely detailed and have a wide appeal.”

“The quality and workmanship of Mulder Yachts speak for itself,” states Stephen White from International Yacht Register. “We look forward to working with all parties to build on that success and help the latest build surpass expectations. Mulder Shipyard is certainly on the move and we are delighted to be associated with them.”

The new 36-metre superyacht will boasts an elegant and discerning modern exterior with a sleek aluminium construction and a continuous window line which finishing in a contemporary plumb bow. The design will boasts the Van Oossanen patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) to ensure comfortable sailing and fuel economy at all speeds. This will not compromise performance as the twin 847 kW engines will ensure a maximum speed of 17 knots.

A full beam design will allow the volume and privacy in the owners’ area to be maximised. The slender, fluid design will go against the current fashion of ballooning beams, as the hull will measure no more than eight metres at its widest point. The slender hull and long waterline will together ensure outstanding seakeeping capacities in rough seas, enhancing comfort for owner and guests alike.

Five spacious cabins on board will accommodate up to ten guests. The exceptional features of the full beam master suite will be heightened by dedicated access to a private seating area in the bow – a tranquil nook from which to contemplate the horizon. An impressive saloon, dining room and bar area will be located on the main deck, with floor to ceiling windows providing panoramic views all around whilst also flooding the interior with lots of natural light. The dining experience will be enhanced by the addition of a folding side balcony, which will bring seascape panoramas right to the table.

Further entertainment space can be found outside the saloon, where the large outdoor cockpit area will provide plenty of shaded al fresco seating and dining possibilities. The flybridge/sun deck above the beach club will include generous seating, lots of sun pads, a whirlpool bathtub with room for eight and a comfy dining place – a perfect backdrop to relaxing, sunbathing and socialising.

For those who wish to be closer to the water, the 36-metre design will incorporate a beach club that is substantially larger than what one would normally expect on a yacht of this size, with further seating and a small day head.

The new Mulder 36-metre motoryacht is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2017.
