The fifth hull in the Mulder ThirtySix series has touched the water for the first time at the shipyard's Zoeterwoude facility in the Netherlands.
Named Solemates, the 36 metre superyacht is the first in the series to have been commissioned by an American owner and will join her sisterships Calypso, Mana I and Delta One on delivery in July this year.
The Mulder ThirtySix is built in aluminium and is defined by a slender profile and continuous window line that culminates in a contemporary plumb bow. Its exterior springs from the drawing boards of British design studio Claydon Reeves and with naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
The 298GT model has scooped a number of accolades since the launch of the first hull in 2017. Delta One went on to win a World Superyacht Award while its sistership, Calypso, scooped an interior design award at the BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards.
While details on Solemates remain slim, features of its fellow ThirtySix designs include a four-cabin layout with a flexible fifth cabin and full-beam mast suite, a transverse garage and a private seating area in the bow.
Solemates is now being prepared for sea trials and will be berthed in Palm Beach. The launch ceremony was an American-themed celebration to congratulate all of the employees and co-workers who were involved in her build.
News of the launch comes shortly after the shipyard announced the purchase of a new construction facility in The Netherlands with two construction sheds large enough for yachts up to 50 metres in length.
