Now work has begun on outfitting the interior, which has been pre-fabricated on site at the Mulder Shipyard by the in-house team of carpenters. The propulsion system is ready and the last parts of the superstructure have also been delivered, including the deck furniture, hardtop and mast.
The vessel, which will be the first Mulder build over 300GT has been designed by Claydon Reeves, both inside and out, with naval architecture from Van Oossanen Naval Architects. She will be built to RINA LY3, MCA classification.
Meanwhile, the recently launched Mulder 98 Flybridge has completed her sea trials in Rotterdam and the North Sea. The 30m vessel surpassed her contracted speed by two knots, posting a top speed of 22 knots.
The yard also claims noise levels were ‘impressively quiet’, due to her floating interior. She will now finish outfitting before being delivered to her owner in the south of France in spring 2015.
