Mulder Yachts launches the 36-metre Sunflower at its Zoeterwoude shipyards, the sixth Mulder ThirtySix for the company.
The launch of Seaflower at the yacht builder’s Netherlands facility follows a successful building period after the hull arrived in September. Following an initial meeting at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show, Seaflower was contracted by Mulder in November for a very experienced and well-known yachtsman and multiple yacht owner.
Scheduled for an on-time delivery, Seaflower will then head to the Mediterranean to make the most of the summer season, before making her industry debut at the 2023 Monaco Yacht Show.
The award-winning Mulder ThirtySix ranks among the most successful yachts in her size range. Boasting a bespoke modern exterior with a sleek aluminium construction and a continuous window line that culminates in a contemporary plumb bow, she features an intelligent layout, excellent sailing characteristics and an unparalleled level of build quality, with a volume of just under 300 gross tons.
The design features the Van Oossanen patented Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF) to ensure comfortable sailing and fuel economy at all speeds, with twin 847 kW engines ensuring a maximum speed of 17 knots (the fuel consumption at economic cruising speed of 11 knots is less than 80 liters per hour).
In addition, a full beam design allows the volume and privacy in the owners’ area to be maximised while the slender hull and long waterline ensure outstanding seakeeping capacities in rough seas, enhancing comfort for owners and guests alike.
Mulder has delivered five ThirtySix yachts to date including Solemates (above), which is the first of the model slated for the United States and currently has four new ThirtySix yachts under construction.
