Mulder Shipyard has recently introduced a new superyacht concept to the industry in the form of the Mulder 2800 Raised Pilot House - Full Beam. Measuring 28 metres in length, the all-aluminium vessel features naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, whilst Frank Laupman of Omega Architects designed the interior and exterior. Amongst her characteristics are low runnings costs, ease of operation, as well as being suitable for both families as well as chartering.
On board, she accommodates up to ten guests as well as a crew of three, with the brand stating that there are opportunities for alternative layouts. The Raised Pilot House feature means that the wheelhouse is raised to a higher position on the vessel, giving the captain a better overview and allowing other valuable options regarding layout and usability in the interior.
In this design, the “Full Beam” aspect relates to the saloon area having side decks, with the master suite located forward on the main deck utilising the whole beam of the boat. This design feature means that the feeling of privacy when in the master suite is substantially improved, as well as providing spectacular views.
In addition, the aft deck dining is another notable feature, with a flush open deck floor plan of over 10 metres in total. Located outdoors with a sundeck roof, this area is perfect for enjoying a sophisticated al fresco dining experience while taking in uninterrupted views.
Performance wise, she has an economic cruising speed of 12 knots. Although there are no exterior renderings currently available of the new model, we can confirm that the Dutch yard is currently working on their inaugural Raised Pilot House yacht, the Mulder 34 metre BN100.
