The well known Dutch builder Mulder Shipyard is delighted to announce that the first motor yacht Mulder 95 Voyager has been recently ordered by a Russian client. The exterior of the groundbreaking Mulder 95 Voyager superyacht is designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, while Vripack Naval Architects is responsible for construction as well as naval architecture. Construction on the hull will start soon, while the launch and delivery under RINA Class, are scheduled for the spring of 2014.
Mulder Shipyard has enhanced its longstanding cooperation with the Dutch design company Omega Architects. Omega’s Frank Laupman – who had previously already created the interiors of the luxury yacht 98 Flybridge and Bellagio yacht for Mulder – designed the elegant semi-custom 95 Voyager yacht in a classic contemporary style with lots of space and an especially impressive main saloon and master stateroom.
Vripack was responsible for the naval architecture of the superyacht Mulder 95 Voyager, creating a RINA + Lloyd’s-certified aluminium body which will ensure a perfect seagoing performance, stability, safety and comfort.
Built entirely in aluminium, the Mulder 95 Flybridge yacht will have a total length of 28,65 metres overall and a beam of 6,90 metres. The yacht will be equipped with two efficient Caterpillar C18 engines, each delivering 1150 hp and providing for a maximum speed of around 20 knots, a cruising speed of fifteen knots and a range of 3600 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Coupled with a three-ton freshwater tank and a watermaker with a capacity of 166 litres per hour, this will easily allow the Mulder 95 Flybridge yacht the self-sufficiency required to cross the Atlantic.
The leading Dutch company Silent Line will implement special methods of noise insulation, which will contribute to the relaxed and peaceful
atmosphere on board. In addition, the exceptional keel construction will ensure that the yacht can moor without the guests or neighbours noticing.
There are two mainstream trends in yacht building today – one, more recent, focuses on sharp shapes, striking details and deliberate minimalism, while the other emphasises flowing lines and builds on the fast yacht designs from before the financial crisis.
The Mulder 95 Voyager yacht was designed to combine the two, creating a gentleman’s yacht that is both stark and elegant, while allowing for maximum comfort and security even during long voyages.
Well-organised planning and innovative construction will allow for an unusually spacious interior of a size more commonly found on much larger boats. This is explained in part by the 95 Voyager yacht’s impressive beam and nonstandard ceiling height of 2,2 metres. Furthermore, unprecedented attention to details and a special method for timber processing deployed by Mulder Shipyard specialists will result in a superbly streamlined interior décor.
Roomy and luxurious
The developers have paid special attention to living and social areas onboard the luxury yacht Mulder 95 Voyager. The interior will comprise a bright, spacious saloon with an area exceeding 40 m², adjacent to a dining room seating eight people. The separate galley located on the port side will contain three large fridges designed for long-distance cruising.
The 95 Voyager yacht’s accommodations will comprise a generous master stateroom of more than 24 m², including a large bathroom and a walk-in closet. There will also be a luxurious VIP suite and two guest cabins, each featuring a private bathroom. The main deck will include a day head.
At 14 metres in length, the Mulder 95 Voyager yacht’s flybridge will be roomy and luxurious, featuring a grill bar adjacent to twin comfy U-shaped settees, as well as cosy deck chairs and sun beds outside. An impressive feature of this versatile space will be the option to combine tables so as to create a seating area for 18 persons.
A cornucopia of toys
The Williams 445 Turbojet yacht tender will be stored on the swim platform or on the flybridge, from where it will be lowered with an Opacmare Transformer. The lazarette also serves as a lovely beach club area and will include a jet ski, three SeaBobs and a special section dedicated to diving equipment and a compressor.
The swimming platform will connect to the crew accommodation, which will provide room for two to four personnel. It will include a separate dining space, a galley and a workshop, indispensable for the comfort and privacy of all onboard during long-haul voyages. The engine room will also be accessible from the crew area.
Mulder Shipyard is renowned for its cost-effective approach to construction, high standard of efficiency and excellent cost management. This is why the Mulder 95 Voyager yacht has the best quality-price ratio of any superyacht in this size bracket while also offering highly impressive finishing throughout.
The first Voyager will be built in Mulder Shipyard’s new facilities in Zoeterwoude Rijndijk. Almost completed, the new yard will have enough space for the construction of yachts up to 45 metres in length and be home to the interior and stainless steel departments. The new yard is located just 15 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, making it ideal for owners and their representatives.
Frank Laupman of Omega Architects is currently developing three new Mulder Voyager yachts. At 25,60 metres and with an attractive price tag, the 95 Voyager yacht’s younger sister, the luxury yacht Mulder 84 Voyager, is devised as an entry-level model. The 104 Voyager superyacht will have a master stateroom on the main deck. And a 114-foot model is planned in a triple deck version.
