Mulder Shipyard, established in 1938, is a family-owned shipyard in the Netherlands employing more than 80 full-time workers over three locations in the Leiden area and a fourth location for the aluminum hull constructions in Enkhuizen. Mulder combines traditional craftsmanship with the latest yachting technologies while focusing on delivering superb quality yachts with outstanding comfort and exceptional seaworthiness. Mulder yachts are built from aluminum, are semi-displacement and can achieve speeds up to 24 knots. Known throughout the industry for their signature designs, they advise, develop and build boats for experienced yacht owners up to 500 gross tons.
A new ThirtySix is currently well advanced in its construction stage by Mulder Yachts and the yard has taken the opportunity to highlight that the new project has been sold and will be delivered in time for the owner to use in the Summer of 2019. Mulder says that the yacht will be delivered in Q1 of 2019. The yard invested heavily in expansion in 2013 and is now capable of building up to 45-meters.
While most YF reviews feature admirably large ocean-going yachts for the elite connoisseur, here we display a nimble illustration of long-standing yacht-building distinction. This outstanding mini-size yacht, from one of the Netherlands many respected builders, is a true example of conspicuous sea-going excellence. For 73 years, since 1938 when Dick Mulder Sr. launched his first model, this Dutch shipyard has delivered a history of fine yacht launches. Mulder has maintained its position as one of the leading builders in modern Netherlands motor-yacht history; continuing its family tradition with yet another Mulder – Dick Jr. – as leader in charge. Now, to celebrate the builder’s 73rd anniversary, one of its long time, very popular models returns, in brand new and exciting modern dress;
One of the leading exponents of premium Dutch yacht building, Mulder Shipyard was established in 1938 by Dirk Mulder senior. With a member of the Mulder family still at the helm today, the yard can attribute its excellent reputation not only to the superb custom-built yachts it has launched, but also to the classic Super Favorite and Favorite Superior cruisers. Many of these motoryachts still grace Dutch and international waters today.
Mulder has a new vessel in the works that they recently revealed. It is called the Mulder Fifty. Although it is a slightly different looking vessel at its core it is still an evolution out of the popular ThirtySix model. Mulder revealed the new design during their 85th anniversary celebrations. At 49.95-meters the vessel's internal volume is kept just below the 500 GT mark (499 GT). The yard will continue to use ThirtySix model elements in the design to keep costs down on the new model.
The technical launch of the eighth Mulder ThirtySix hull has taken place. Although this yacht looks similar to other ThirtySix model members like "Solemates" and "Seaflower", there are going to be some differences on this build. The semi-custom yacht offers "more flexibility" whilst still maintaining the all-important Mulder DNA," according to Mulder.
Dutch yacht builder Mulder Shipyard has celebrated the launching of their latest vessel, the third Mulder ThirtySix called "Mana". The all-aluminium construction is done to a bespoke design by Claydon Reeves and is already undertaking her sea trial period on the North Sea ahead of delivery. The interior is by Hollander Yacht Design with Naval Architecture by Van Oossanen.
Dutch yacht builder Mulder Yachts started construction on the second Mulder ThirtySix yacht. As far it is known, there is not an owner for this build and so it is being built on speculation. The build will follow a similar trend as the first while the yard tries to secure a buyer. We will imagine that Claydon Reeves is responsible for the exterior design in conjunction with the Mulder Yard based on the first build. The Naval Architecture is also by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
The 34-meter "Solis" now assumes flagship status at Dutch builder Mulder Yachts since she was launched. Previously known simply as the Mulder 'Thirty-Four', the new yacht displays her new name from sideboards. A stylish but subdued cream hull contrasts the gleaming white aluminium superstructure and silver-grey hardtop. We know you are wondering who designed the new flagship of Mulder Yachts. That answer comes in the form of Claydon Reeves - yes British design firm Claydon Reeves. They were responsible for both the exterior and interior of Solis while the Naval Architecture work stayed in The Netherlands with Van Oossaneen. The Mulder has a GT from 315 tons and will be built under RINA LY3, MCA classification and Unlimited Range.
Another sub-100' design surfaces and this time it is from Mulder Shipyard in The Netherlands. The style is new and fresh and features a Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) patented by Van Oossanen in addition to a Raised Pilot House (RPH) design. The design both externally and internally is by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. The interior is rather light and airy concentrating on floaty and light tones like faint tans and browns and accented by subtle pop of colour in the throws and and some upholstery.
The technical sea trials of the all-aluminium Mulder 98 Flybridge have been successfully concluded. The 30-meter custom-built Mulder with its stunning round-bilged hull achieved a maximum speed of 22-knots; two knots more than expected. The sound levels of the 98-footer were also impressively quiet. The Mulder 98 Flybridge had its global launch in September during the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show. In addition to being the largest yacht at the show, it is also the largest Mulder Flybridge ever built.The sea trials of the 30-meter Mulder with its beam of 6.90-meters were started immediately after the HISWA Boat Show; initially in Rotterdam and later on the North Sea from the port of Scheveningen (close to The Hague). The Mulder 98 Flybridge features a round-bilged hull and is powered by two Caterpillar C32 engines with a capacity of 1685hp each. The yacht has a fuel capacity of 17,000 liters. At a speed of 10-knots, this gives a Trans-Atlantic range of approximately 3,300 nautical miles. Due to a special insulation method and her ‘floating’ interior, the sound and vibration levels of the Mulder 98 Flybridge are extremely low. In consultation with the owner, the yacht was built fully in accordance with RINA certification.
