MULDER Thirtyfour Solis
Mulder’s 100th displacing yacht hit the water. This yacht features sober and timeless elegant lines which are set to take on the toll of time.
Beyond large shipbuilding yards’ policies, there are several others which clearly demonstrate they can stand out of the chorus line even though they are nothing more than a family run business. Dutch yard Mulder is a perfect example of this. Founded back in 1938 by Dirk Mulder Senior, it is now currently run by the family’s third generation, which is highly regarded internationally for fine quality builds it has been producing repeatedly since inception. The first was a nine metre sailing boat designed by Mulder himself. The yard’s activity embraced a large range – from small centre boards up to large custom tailor made motor yachts, while maintaining all along a recurrent stylistic coherence which is still found in today’s new generation models. On the threshold of 2018 Mulder Shipyard possesses a recent entry in terms of another yard which was set up in 2013 at premises in Zoeterwoude-rindijk. This yard focuses on carrying out maintenance work, refits, as well as new builds ranging from 18 to 45 metres spreading over five distinct lines, namely: Mulder Favourite, Mulder Convertible,
Mulder Wheelhouse, Mulder Flybridge and custom yacht “Built by Mulder” to which in 2019 a modern concept RPH (Raised Pilot House) will be added. The yard’s current flagship, (the thirty four metre) which can build yachts up to 45 metres, is waiting to see the Thirty six hit the water, the construction of which has been scheduled to begin in 2018, while the Thirty four metre “Solis” was built, completed and delivered in only 17 months. This Yacht is the first one that Mulder designed with Claydon Reeves Design studio which contributed with a creative and equally innovative approach while remaining within the yard’s traditional style. The yacht’s silhouette is clearly elegant, where light hues of the hull and superstructure blend well with light grey inserts which proportionally streamline the yacht’s profile, while the near vertical bow confers to it a modern touch. The transom is underscored by inbuilt steps, which are an example of fine craftsmanship and functional design work at the same time, making it easy and
safe to go, to and from the bathing platform. “Solis” was built as a family yacht on the owner’s request. Behind her attractive silhouette “Solis” reveals the kind of care and attention paid to detail , privileging high degrees of comfort rather than sheer luxury which is, what happens often enough, in superyachts designed to entertain guests.the interior decor is soberly elegant, the common areas are welcoming and cosy even almost intimate while sporting floor to ceiling glazed panelling which enhances contact with the surroundings as it slides open. Every detail is there to deliver a feeling of greater depth and contact with the exterior, including the railings above the topsides situated opposite the dining area contribute in creating a feeling of “infinity” and an uninterrupted vision of the surroundings throughout the whole deck. The cockpit area is set up to double when required as a large sun bathing platform. It leads to the main living area which resembles a lounge contoured by a ‘porch’ like structure equipped with a wet bar which separates the lounge area from the dining zone. Further forwards towards the bow we come to a bright modern owner suite thanks to the light woodwork deployed as opposed to a dark one, and also thanks to large window like ports built into the topsides and to a skylight which is easily as big as the king size bed below it with a bathroom en suite. Mother of pearl inserts resembling fish line the length of the passageway leading to the other decks. Two twin cabins with single beds are situated along the lower deck, probably the children’s given the decor and a large double with small corner lounge in which to relax, a dressing table and private bathroom. The bridge deck above houses a large helm controls station equipped with latest generation technology, integrated systems and navigational aids. Finally above the helm controls station on the bridge deck there’s an ample sun deck featuring sun beds, sun pads as well as a round shaped Jacuzzi.
