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.
“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.
