Mulder Shipyard in the Netherlands has started construction of a new 36m motoryacht. The project is the yard’s largest to date and the second to be built to the new LY3 standard.
This new build follows on from the delivery of 28.6m Mulder Voyager and the 34m custom-built Solis in 2015.
“The basic concept behind this exciting new yacht is to make the most out of a volume not exceeding 300gt,” 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.”
The naval architecture will be taken care of by Van Oossanen and will feature the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF). The yacht will be built 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,” Mulder says, adding that 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,” he concludes.
Following a successful partnership on an earlier build, Mulder Shipyard suggested to the client that Claydon Reeves Design and International Yacht Register serve as owners’ representative.
“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 36m yacht will be practical, finely detailed and have a wide appeal.”
Commenting on the partnership, Stephen White from International Yacht Register says: “The quality and workmanship of Mulder Yachts speak for itself. 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 yacht will be equipped with twin 847 kW engines to provide a maximum speed of 17 knots. Five cabins onboard will accommodate up to ten guests.
The yacht is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2017.
