Projects: Mulder 1500 Favorite, Mulder 1600 Favorite

Following the presentation of the Mulder 1400 Favorite a few weeks back, it was next to complete the two other projects concerning this new range from the Dutch builder. Today we present you the Mulder 1500 and 1600 of the new Favorite range. Like the smaller 1400, the Mulder 1500 Favorite is available with a round bilge or a chine shaped hull with a conventional shaft propulsion. The client has also the option of various power choices from twin 150hp up to 435hp Volvo engines. This will allow the yacht to reach a maximum speed from twelve to 27 knots. The Mulder 1500 Favorite interior is open and well thought through with a wheelhouse consisting of a large C-shaped seating dinette area, luxury TV stand, and optional rinsing unit. The steering position has an excellent view over the ship’s bow. A galley is located one level below and can be reached via a staircase next to the steering position, and can be fitted with various amenities. Below you have a twin cabins with owners suite to fore, and a second shower head. You also get a three metre big tender garage aft. The first 1500 Favorite is currently under construction and will be a round bilged hull with a conventional propeller shaft system, powered by twin Volvo 330hp engines. The Mulder 1600 Favorite project just like its smaller sister has also been developed in close partnership with Guido de Groot and Vripack Naval Architects. Unlike its sister though the 1600 is only available with a round bilge hull. Again the 1600 Favorite follows a similar choice of power options, from twin 150hp up to 435hp Volvo engines. The round bilge shape makes this yacht perfectly suited to comfortable cruising, from ten knots up to a 25 knots top speed. A catching feature is the irregular shape of the bow, which in contrast to the almost sheer shape of the Favorite 1400 and 1500 model, the 1600 will feature a more traditional angled form. The Mulder 1600 Favorite interior will also offer two layout choices. A three double cabins single heads plan, or a two cabins two heads layout. This last giving two en suited heads to both owner and guest cabins. Up on the main deck we find again an open wheelhouse layout, with an intermediate galley located between the main and lower deck.
