Second Mulder ThirtySix yacht in build on spec
by Chris Jefferies
Mulder Shipyard has announced that construction has begun on the second hull in its flagship ThirtySix yacht series, which is currently known as Mulder BN 110. Designed in collaboration with the Claydon Reeves Design Studio, this 36 metre yacht is being built on speculation at the Dutch yard to LY3 standards.
Mulder adds that the new yacht will share the intimate family feel of its current flagship, the 34 metre Solis, and is due to hit the water in 2018. As with the first hull in the series BN 105, which is due for completion later this year, BN 110 will feature all-aluminium construction and the patented Van Oossanen Fast Displacement Hull Form.
A five-cabin layout will allow ten guests to be accommodated in comfort, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of five. Key features include floor-to-ceiling windows around the saloon and bar area, and the dining room will include a fold-down superyacht balcony for unimpeded views out to sea.
Toy storage will be ample, with the side-loading tender garage capable of housing a main tender that measures up to 6.25 metres, as well as two Jet Skis, kayaks, Seabobs and diving gear. The side-opening hatch is just one way of interacting with the water as BN 110 will also boast a generous open-stern superyacht beach club.
Power will come from a pair of 1,136hp Caterpillar C18 diesel engines for a top speed of 16.8 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots, while BN 110’s total fuel capacity of 32,000 litres should ensure an impressive cruising range.
