Mulder 75 Wheelhouse successfully launched
Published: Wednesday, 05 June 2013
This gentleman’s yacht was created in cooperation with Guido de Groot Design and Ginton Naval Architects and will be the first Mulder-yacht sailing in the US. Delivery is scheduled for mid-June this year.
Based on the successful Mulder 73 Wheelhouse with 85 centimetres of additional length, the Mulder 75 Wheelhouse has an elegant appearance due to her lower length to height ratio and unique details in the superstructure and lower bulwarks. The lines of this all-aluminium motoryacht identify her as a true Mulder. With a slight angle in the stern, a sloping roof overhang and dark window frames, the overall design contributes to a dynamic and elegant profile and a futuristic outlook.
The yacht’s performance further underlines its Mulder pedigree. The Wheelhouse models are built with a semi-displacement, round-bilged hull, which functions optimally in all weather conditions and sailing regions. She comes standard with two Caterpillar 715 hp engines that provide a top speed of about 20 knots. Stabiliser fins increase the sailing comfort, which can be further enhanced by installing the optional Seakeeper M26000 Gyro Active Stabilising System. This ensures maximum stability both on the sea and at anchor.
The four guest cabins accommodate up to eight guests, while the luxurious 20-square metre owner’s suite features a king-sized bed, a lounge area, a large vanity table and an ensuite bathroom. The open galley, equipped with various Miele appliances, is directly connected to the saloon. The crew has its own cabin with head and separate shower on the port side of the yacht and directly accessible from the deck via a dedicated entrance.
Open, split-level concepts are another renowned characteristic of Mulder designs. The open space from the saloon towards the wheelhouse helps bathe the interior with natural light. The wheelhouse itself features a comfortable sofa and two armchairs, ideal for social interaction.
Below the aft deck is a tender garage for a Williams 445 Dieseljet, accessible via a hydraulic door.
This spring Mulder Shipyard opened its new yard in Zoeterwoude-Rijndijk. In addition to enabling the construction of yachts of up to 45 metres, the sustainably constructed yard also provides space for winter storage, maintenance and refits. The former yard in Voorschoten will be focusing on refits, maintenance, storage and the sale of yachts up to 18 metres.
