Web: Mulder New Web Site

Dutch yacht builder Mulder presents its new virtual showroom aimed at presenting its unique range of steel builds to the global community. Founded in 1938 by Dirk Mulder Senior this Dutch leading boating family of designers and builders has grown itself into a rather unique company offering also a diverse product range. When Dirk Mulder Senior founded the company at the still actual premises he was only 27 years old. The first builds at Mulder where of wood and sailing craft type, but the company also started to construct yachts with steel a few years after its founding. With steel always becoming more predominant in the builds in 1953 Mulder launched its first complete motor powered boat with the 7.50 Baby Favorite, followed in 1955 by a complete three models range of power boats. In the sixties the company extended the range with the success of the Super Favorite, building for a good period at least one every month of the new bigger three model range. In the seventies Mulder delivered its last sailing yacht at twelve metres in size, and started dedicating full concentration to motor powered boats. At the period Dirk Mulder also started to take it more easy and gave yard operations to an outside manager until 1984, when 22 year old Dirk Robert Mulder Junior took over the leading position, which he baptized with the launch of the three different sized Favorite Super range, marking also the return to a classic flared bow. The nineties began the expansion of bigger sizes, but also the use of new construction methods for the Mulder yachts upper structure now build of steel or alloy. In the end of the nineties a new Futura range designed by the A1 team and consisting of more modern looks was launched. The company has after this seen an expansion in sizes which culminated with the delivery of the Mulder 88 in 2001. In April 2013 Mulder new building facility was opened. Today Mulder offers six ranges: Favorite, Convertible, Wheelhouse, Flybridge, Voyager, and Built By which total 27 models and start with the 1300 Favorite and go up to the 98 Flybridge. Mulder website is available in Dutch and English language and takes you around with the following buttons: Home, Shipyard, Mulder Refit, History, Jobs, and Delivered Yachts.  There is also a separate tab for each one of the range by Mulder on the top of the entrance page.
