Mulder Shipyard Signs First 95 Voyager Megayacht

Mulder Shipyard has teamed once again with Omega Architects for a new series, the 95 Voyager. Hull number one should start construction soon, for a Russian client.

Mulder Shipyard and Omega Architects have previously collaborated on the interiors for the Bellagio series of boats and the Mulder 98 Flybridge. The all-aluminum, RINA-classed Mulder 95 Voyager megayacht will further feature Omega’s handiwork inside, while Vripack is overseeing the naval architecture.

Despite the name, the 95 Voyager megayacht is just shy of 95 feet: about 93’10”, or 28.65 meters. Regardless, she’ll have a healthy 22’6” (6.9-meter) beam, akin to yachts of 100 feet LOA. She’ll also be engineered for transatlantic crossings. Range should be 3,500 nautical miles at an economical 10-knot cruising speed. Traditional cruising will be at 15 knots, with top end around 18 to 20 knots. Power will come courtesy of twin 1,150-hp Caterpillars.

Getting back to the megayacht’s beam for a moment, the spacious feeling should be enhanced by 7’2” (2.2-meter) overheads. It should also be enhanced by the devotion of more space to the saloon and master. The former comprises more than 430 square feet (40 square meters), while the latter is 258 square feet (24 square meters). The VIP and two guest staterooms below decks shouldn’t suffer, of course. Neither will the galley, kept on the main deck rather than relocated below decks the way other European builders are doing these days.

Alfresco enjoyment will take place in the usual spaces, including the nearly 46-foot-long (14-meter-long) flying bridge. Depending on the megayacht’s itinerary, the Williams tender will be stowed up here or on the swim platform. The tender garage will hold a variety of playthings, too, like a PWC, SeaBobs, and dive gear. Two to four crew will assist the owner and guests in boarding and more.

The first Mulder Voyager 95 will be delivered in 2014.

Other Voyager model megayachts are in the works as well, including an 84, 104, and 114 trideck. Details to come as soon as they are available.
