Dutch shipyard Mulder Shipyard has begun construction on what will be the company’s largest superyacht to date, 36m project BN 105.
Looking to become a serious contender in the custom yacht building market, BN 105 is based on a patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), and designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Mulder will also work with British design studio Claydon Reeves for the second time, having collaborated on 34m superyacht, Solis, last year.
Mike Reeves from Claydon Reeves Design commented, “We enjoyed working closely with Mulder Shipyard during the fast-paced design and build development of Solis. We share similar values and aim to achieve a high-quality, authentic product. As a result, the new 36-metre yacht will be practical, finely detailed and have a wide appeal.”
The interior of BN 105 is made up of five spacious cabins, able to accommodate up to 10 guests. Natural light was an important element in the design, with full height windows on the main deck and a side-folding balcony. Tenders included on the BN 105 include a Williams Dieseljet 625 tender, two jet skis and a large outdoor pool.
Dick Mulder, yard director at Mulder explained, “The basic concept behind this exciting new yacht is to make the most out of a volume not exceeding 300GT. This will open up excellent possibilities for both private use and chartering, with the possibility of having a relatively small crew when the owners are on board.”
International Yacht Register will then represent the owners for the duration of the superyacht build, which is due to be launched in 2017. Stephen White from International Yacht Register stated, “The quality and workmanship of Mulder Yachts speaks for itself. We look forward to working with all parties to build on that success and help the latest build surpass expectations.”
