Mulder has delivered a brand-new Mulder 75 Wheelhouse to her owner in America. The custom build Strathearn is created in partnership with Guido de Groot Design and Ginton Naval Architects and will be the first Mulder-yacht sailing in the USA.
The full aluminum 75-footer left from Eemshaven (NL) to be transported to the USA by a yacht transport carrier. After eleven days the Strathearn arrived in Baltimore where a team of Mulder engineers was waiting to unload and commissioning the yacht. The latest Mulder is built with a semi-planing round bilged hull, which has proven itself in the most diverse weather conditions. With twin Caterpillar 715 hp engines, the yacht achieves a top speed of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots. The Seakeeper M26000 Gyro active stabilization system provides additional comfort while both cruising and on anchor. The latest Mulder will be sailing in the Northeast of America and is equipped with an American electricity system (110 V / 60 Hz). The gentleman’s yacht, which is built ‘on time and on budget ', will be shown at American boat shows this fall.
The Strathearn is the result of the yard’s extensive experience since 1938. Based on the successful Mulder 73 Wheelhouse with 85 cm of additional length, the 75 has an elegant overall character due to her lower length/height ratio, unique details in the superstructure and lower bulwarks. The lines of the all-aluminium motoryacht identify her as a true Mulder. With a slight angle in the stern, a sloping roof overhang and dark window frames, the overall design contributes to a dynamic and elegant profile.
In stark contrast to the average yacht, Mulder develops unique vessels with a superior performance that combine elegance and comfort in a well-balanced ambiance. The latter aspect is clearly present in the interior of the Strathearn, which offers an unrivalled mix of functionality, ergonomics and top-quality equipment. The four guest cabins accommodate up to eight guests, while the luxurious 20m² owner’s suite features a king-sized bed, a lounge area, a large vanity table and an ensuite bathroom. The open galley is equipped with various Miele appliances, and connects directly to the saloon. The open, split-level concepts are another renowned characteristic of Mulder designs. The open space from the saloon towards the wheelhouse helps bathe the interior with natural light.
The wheelhouse itself features a comfortable sofa and two armchairs, ideal for the precious moments with the entire family. The onboard comfort is further enhanced by the ergonomics. The luxurious helm seat provides clear overviews of the entire yacht and her surroundings, even in heavy seas, while the logical placement and easy operation of the instruments ensure an optimal sailing experience. The Strathearn is equipped with a rear facade with an electrically operated sliding window and a comfortable corner seat. This allows passengers to enjoy the views from the aft deck at higher speeds with a minimum of wind noise and spray. Below the aft deck is a tender garage for a Zodiac 425, accessible via a hydraulic door. The crew has its own cabin with head and separate shower on the starboard side of the yacht and directly accessible from the deck via a dedicated entrance.
