Mulder Yachts launches updated Favorite 1500

Dutch yard Mulder Yachts has revealed the latest version of its Favorite 1500, which features an improved aft deck layout. Popular among superyacht owners as a day cruiser, the Mulder Favourite 1500 features the yard’s distinctive round-bilge hull, which was developed in collaboration with Guido de Groot Design.

New features on this updated 15.6 metre launch include a larger garage in the transom, which can swallow up a three metre tender. Mulder Yachts has also added new insulation materials and under floor heating for year-round comfort, while the aluminium construction is now 10% lighter than before, for a total displacement of 18 tonnes.

The layout comprises a main deck saloon that is divided from the cockpit by a sliding glass door, while accommodation on the lower deck is split between two en-suite guest cabins.

In a statement, the yard explained: “The renewed Favorite 1500 will have a more elegant, a more genuine look combined with much improved new aft deck layout to ensure the highest levels of luxury and comfort on board at all times.”

Power comes from a pair of Volvo Penta D6 engines for a top speed of 25 knots and the completed launch has been classed as RCD Category A for offshore cruising. The first new Favorite 1500, which has been built as a yard demonstrator and named Summer, will be showcased at several boat shows during the 2016 season.

Upcoming projects currently under development at Mulder Yachts’ Zoeterwoude-Rijndijk facility include the BN 105, a 36 metre superyacht that is due to launch in 2017.
