Video: Mulder flagship BN 105 in technical launch
by Chris Jefferies
In-build superyacht Mulder BN 105 has been moved to the Dutch yard’s Zoeterwoude facility for fitting out. As this drone footage from August 5 shows, the hull and superstructure are largely complete.
British studio Claydon Reeves Design, who also collaborated with Mulder on an earlier build, _Solis _— the feel-good family yacht — is responsible for the exterior design. The yacht will feature the patented Fast Displacement Hull Form from Van Oossanen Naval Architects, which the yard said “ensures comfortable sailing and fuel economy at all speeds”.
“The basic concept behind this exciting new yacht is to make the most out of a volume not exceeding 300 GT,” explained yard director Dick Mulder. “This will open up excellent possibilities for both private use and chartering, with the possibility of having a relatively small crew when the owners are on board.”
Twin 1,136hp engines will offer a projected top speed of 17 knots, while five cabins will provide accommodation for up to 10 guests, including a full beam master suite with its own private seating area on the bow.
The main deck saloon boasts a lounge, dining room and bar area, with large windows to provide panoramic views. A folding superyacht terrace further improves the view from the dining table.
“It will be fitted with many features normally associated with far larger yachts in terms of both operation and design,” added Mulder.
“Special features will include a large Williams Dieseljet 625 tender, a beach club, two Jetskis, a large spa pool and plenty of sun pads. We are convinced that the end result will be truly exceptional for this size of yacht.”
