Mulder Shipyard introduces new Mulder 73 Flybridge at HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show
Mulder Shipyard in the Netherlands will be presenting the new Mulder 73 Flybridge to the public at the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show from 4 to 9 September. Built for an Australian client, the yacht was designed by Guido de Groot. The new Mulder 73 Flybridge has an overall length of 22.30m and a beam of 6.20m. Featuring two Caterpillar C18 engines, with a capacity of 1150 hp each, she will have a top speed of around 20 knots, while the fuel tank, with a capacity of 1,200 litres, ensures a range of approximately 3,500 nm at a speed of ten knots.
The spacious flybridge can accommodate a large jet propelled tender and a smaller tender with outboard engine. The port side features a comfortable U-shaped sofa for eight people. Additionally, the flybridge is equipped with a bar, grill, refrigerator and sink unit. The large fixed bimini contains several substantial windows while also providing sufficient shade when the sun is at its brightest.
Established in 1938 by Dirk Mulder Sr, Shipyard Mulder has evolved into one of the leading lights in the Dutch yacht building industry. Today it remains a family concern, with the next generation of Mulders at the helm. The yard’s global reputation for quality has been built upon three main pillars: the classic Super Favorite Cruisers, the later Favorite Superior and a range of Mulder custom-built motoryachts.
