New Model: Mulder 1300 Cabrio

Mulder Shipyard in the Netherlands has delivered a new member of the renowned Favorite range. This latest Mulder 1300 Favorite Cabrio is the first convertible model in the series as well as paying tribute to be completed at the brand-new shipyard in Zoeterwoude. The classically lined Mulder 1300 Favorite Cabrio is based on the successful line reintroduced by Mulder Shipyard in 2010 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of this cruisers line which brought so much success in the past. The new entry level in all the Mulder and the Favorite line, the 1300 Cabrio was developed in close cooperation with Guido de Groot Design and Vripack Naval Architects. Characteristic features of the modern classic include the nearly straight bow and the sloping transom stern. The 1300 Favorite Cabrio is a distinctive yacht with recognizable retro lines, designed for family sailing. The custom-built 1300 serves as the perfect day-cruiser but is also very suitable for longer stays on board. The elegant 1300 Favorite Cabrio has a functional layout and provides the highest level of luxury and comfort. With her spacious cabins, light saloon, large open cockpit and subtle tender storage making it a true all-rounder.  The electrically operated convertible roof of over twelve square metres creates a unique ‘open experience’. The raised seating area in the saloon, elongated windows on both sides and glass sliding doors with electrically operated sliding windows provide unobstructed views all around. The Favorite 1300 Cabrio has an aluminium hull and superstructure.  Hull one was powered with standard twin 110hp Volvo engines and features a round-bilged hull with propeller shaft propulsion.  Optional power up to twin Volvo 330hp is available.
