New Model: Mulder 73 Flybridge

 
Mulder Shipyard in the Netherlands completed the new 73 Flybridge in late November 2012. The yacht was commissioned in 2010 by an Australian client who chose Mulder for its experience in aluminium and steel yacht building. As happens with all Mulder's the owner was closely involved with the build during the final four weeks of construction, and the yacht was delivered to him after sea trials on the North Sea.  Mulder 73 Flybridge features a spacious fly deck which houses a large jet-propelled tender and a smaller dinghy with outboard engine. A comfortable U-shaped seating area on the port side seats eight. The flybridge is also equipped with a bar grill, refrigerator and sink. The large fixed hard top has lots of window space while also offering plenty of shade in sunny conditions. Inside the 73 Flybridge include a spacious full-beam owner’s stateroom, VIP suite and guest cabin; each with its own shower and toilet. A spacious crew area is located aft for two or three persons, and this also includes a large worktop with working space. The crew accommodations can be reached from the swim platform and via an internal stairway from the saloon. The main deck saloon features a luxurious L-shaped sofa and three armchairs. Due to the large windows in the superstructure, this area has an exceptionally open and spacious feel. The galley is equipped with all the appliances on a yacht of this class, and has direct access to the dining area. The entire interior has a classic ambiance with a teak finish and wenge details. Power is twin Cat 1150hp engines which give a max speed of 22 knots, with a 10 knots economic cruise allowing for a 3500 nm range.
