Project: Mulder 1400 Favorite

Mulder Shipyard was established seventy years ago this year and to mark this auspicious occasion the yard has decided to breath new life into the Favorite range. Originally introduced in the 1950s, an all new aluminium version will be launched in 2010 and be produced in a limited edition. The twenty first century Mulder Favorite will be available in three types 1400, 1500 and 1600, and built to stunning new designs developed in close cooperation with Guido de Groot and Vripack Naval Architects. Distinguishing features include smooth retro lines and a steep bow. The yachts will be available with either a round-bilged or a hard chine hull and fitted with two engines. There is a wide array of engines to choose from, ranging from twin 150hp to 435 hp. Its round-bilged shape makes the yacht ideal for comfortable cruising from 10 to 25 knots. The first Favourite to be deliver is the 1400 and is currently under construction. The 1400 Favorite will be equipped with a double Volvo IPS600 435hp and has a hard chine hull with spray rails, giving her a maximum speed of up to 35 knots. All yachts built at Mulder are developed in close cooperation with the client and this will also apply to the new Favorite range. The 1400 currently under construction, for example, will feature a stylish cherry interior with panel covered doors, a wengé floor and sofas upholstered with luxury leather.
