Dutch yacht builder Mulder Shipyard has started construction on what will become their largest yacht to date; the 36 metre project BN 105. Following the successful deliveries of the first Mulder 94 Voyager Firefly and the 34 metre superyacht Solis last year, the yard feels their new project is a natural progression of their abilities and proves their intent as a serious contender in the custom yacht building market.
The yacht is based on a patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, with the yard working together with British design studio Claydon Reeves who has continued a somewhat familiar exterior design in their second ever project with Mulder Shipyard.“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 when the owners are onboard.”
Some of the features packed into the 36 metre yacht is a Williams Diesljet 625 tender along with two Jet Ski’s, a large outdoor pool and an abundance of sunbathing areas. The RINA MCA LY3 classed yacht will not only be suited for leisurely cruises from Monaco to St. Tropez, but her transatlantic range makes destinations beyond the reach of other yachts in this size range a possibility.
“We enjoyed working closely with Mulder Shipyard during the fast-paced design and build development ofSolis,” 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.”
Inside, five generous cabins, making the most of the full beam design, will accommodate up to 10 guests in absolute comfort and style. Natural light is a key element as part of the interior ambience, a feeling that will be realised through the use of full height windows on main deck with the addition of a side folding balcony.
And as with Solis, International Yacht Register will be representing the owners throughout the build.“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”
The yacht is currently under construction and is expected to be ready for cruising in the summer of 2017.
