From Russia With Love is the message received at Mulder Shipyard in Holland now that it has been given a new order to build a Mulder 98 Flybridge for a client from Russia.
The all-new, all-aluminium yacht has been developed by the design team and will be delivered in the second quarter of 2013.
The company’s Flybridge yachts have been a major international success. The Dutch yard delivered a 98 Flybridge to a client from Egypt in 2010 and recently sold a 73 Flybridge to an Australian client
The latter had seen a similar yacht at the Auckland yacht show, a yacht that was delivered in 2007 to a client from New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Mulder has also built several other projects for clients from
With a length of 30.00 metres over all, and a beam of 6.90 metres the yacht is powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines with a capacity of 1600 hp each, offering a maximum speed of 22 knots.
The yacht has a fuel capacity of 17,000 litres, which gives it a range of 4,500 nm at a speed of ten knots. The hull will be built in accordance with Lloyd’s classification.
The interior includes a spacious saloon, with a starboard 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 after part contains crew quarters with two twin cabins with a shower and toilet. These quarters can be reached via the swim platform, and give direct access to the engine room.
The tender can be stored either on the swim platform or on the flybridge. Additionally, that deck is equipped with deck chairs, two U-shaped sofas and a wetbar with grill, icemaker and refrigerator.
This new order will be the first yacht to be built at the new facilities of Mulder Shipyard.
