4 March 2017• Written by Chris Jefferies

Dutch naval architecture studio Mulder Design has revealed details of its latest concept, a 36 metre explorer yacht that is being developed under the codename P1182.

The yard and build classification are yet to be decided, but the hull would be made from steel with an aluminium superstructure.

The Mulder 36 explorer yacht concept has been designed with a top speed of 13.5 knots

In a statement, the studio explained: “We wanted to create a unique atmosphere in the skylounge, breaking down the boundries between interior and exterior spaces with full width glass doors which provide an unobstructed view to the aft wheelhouse deck.”

Accommodation is for up to eight guests, including a main-deck owner’s cabin, a VIP and a twin. The combined gym/wellness centre can be converted into a fourth cabin, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to eight people.

Other key features include a superyacht elevator that connects all four decks and can be used as a dumb waiter, due to its proximity to the galley. Exterior relaxation options are plentiful, with a sundeck cocktail bar and adjacent Jacuzzi that boasts exceptional views out to sea.

Power would come from a pair of 1,300hp Caterpillar C32 engines for a top speed of 13.5 knots and a maximum cruising range of 4,200 nautical miles at 11 knots.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch studio include the Benetti Now Fast series, which was recently unveiled at the Yachts Miami Beach boat show.
