The project stands apart with its signature clean lines and large volume; something Mulder Design has become known for in its past projects.
Looking at guest features on board, Sestante comes complete with a pool on the upper deck, as well as a spacious owner’s stateroom and two VIP suites, each with its own balcony.
The strong exterior with its defined bow shape is not only for appearance’s sake, as the studio explains it is vital to comfort levels on board: “The most important part of the yacht is the hull. The shape defines important characteristics regarding stability, sea-keeping and efficiency in various speed and loading conditions.”
This particular hull shape is the High Speed Cruising Hull developed by Mulder; designed specifically to deliver a higher top speed than conventional hulls, whilst retaining long-range capabilities. It allows her to reach speeds in excess of 25 knots for example, while she is able to cover a range of 6,500nm when cruising at 12 knots. Although various propulsion packages can be implemented into the design, Mulder achieved these efficient figures with the use of a Voith Linear Jet system that also offers a substantially lower draft of only 3.2 metres.
Standard roll stabilisers will maintain a steady level on board in choppy conditions, but for an even more stable experience, a pitch-stabilising system combined with roll-stabilising system can be added to reduce pitch by up to 40%.
