Mulder Shipyard successfully launched the first Mulder 98 Flybridge. The 30.5 meter long full aluminium yacht with beautiful round bilged hull, is designed by Guido de Groot Design. Ginton Naval Architects was in charge of the naval architecture. The Mulder 98 Flybridge is expected to be delivered in late August and will be shown at the HISWA Amsterdam Boat Show in September.
The 98-footer will be powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines with a capacity of 1600 hp each, offering a maximum speed of 22 knots. The 6.90 meter wide yacht has a fuel capacity of 17,000 litres, providing a transatlantic range of 4,500 nm at a speed of ten knots. The yacht is built in accordance with RINA-Classification.
The custom built interior of the new Mulder 98 Flybridge includes a spacious saloon, with a dining area for eight people. The galley on the port side gives direct access to the gangway and a day head. The owner’s stateroom includes a large walk-in closet and three elliptical portholes on both sides. The yacht also has a VIP suite and two guest cabins, each with their own shower and toilet. The interior will be finished in walnut. The aft ship contains the crew quarters with two twin cabins with a shower and toilet. These quarters can be reached from the side deck on main deck and via the swimming platform, and give direct access to the engine room. The tender can be stored either on the swimming platform or on the flybridge. Additionally, the flybridge is equipped with deck chairs, two roomy U-shaped sofas and a wetbar with grill, icemaker and refrigerator.
