Mulder Yachts just went bigger than ever before.
The Dutch shipyard unveiled the largest model in its 85-year history on Tuesday. Fittingly christened Mulder Fifty, the superyacht spans 164 feet (50 meters) and builds upon the existing 118-foot Mulder ThirtySix.
“When we first designed the Mulder ThirtySix we noticed a gap in the market, and we wanted to do the same thing with the Mulder Fifty on a larger scale,” managing director Nick Mulder said in a statement.
Penned by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the newcomer sports a sleek light-gray hull with tapered decks and aft overhangs. The aluminum cruiser will be built from an existing platform and borrow “engineered elements” from the ThirtySix, according to Mulder. As a result, the yard can reduce production costs and work with preferred suppliers. Owners will still be able to tailor the vessel to their exact style and preferences, though.
The Mulder Fifty is described as a “four-generation yacht,” meaning that it can accommodate seafarers of varying ages. With an interior volume of just under 500 GT, the yacht offers plenty of space for the whole family. The layout can be adapted to suit specific needs, but the standard design offers six sumptuous staterooms. If that’s not enough, you can add a seventh room on the aft wheelhouse deck.
“This yacht is not only designed for the owner, but their children, parents, and grandparents,” adds Mulder. “She features, for example, a central elevator, which connects all the decks, allowing for direct access to her exterior decks.”
The living quarters center around an expansive main salon with Mulder’s signature central bar and floor-to-ceiling windows that afford sweeping views. The scenic skylounge is also fitted with full-length windows for more vistas still. The lower deck is dedicated to the crew, with five crew cabins, a laundry area, a crew mess, an engineer’s cabin, and the engine room, while the captain’s cabin sits on the main deck next to the wheelhouse.
There are plenty of amenities outside, too. Spanning just over 800 square feet, the sheltered sundeck is equipped with a Jacuzzi, cocktail bar, comfy sun pads, and an observation lounge. The lower deck, meanwhile, features a beach club, a gym, a swim platform, and a tender garage. You can also add a swimming pool to the aft deck if you like.
The best part? The Mulder Fifty can be equipped with a hybrid propulsion system to lower fuel consumption and environmental impact.
Mulder says the newcomer marks the start of the shipyard’s journey into larger vessels up to 500 GT. Sounds like we can expect even bigger fleet members soon, then.
