Mulder 98 exceeds in sea trials

Nov 14, 2014 by Dorie Cox

The 98-foot (30m) aluminium Mulder 98 Flybridge, the largest Mulder ever built, hit maximum speed of 22 knots during sea trials, two knots more than expected.

The Mulder 98 Flybridge had its global launch in September during the HISWA Amsterdam in-water Boat Show. The vessel is powered by two Caterpillar C32 engines with a capacity of 1685hp each. It is expected to cruise in the south of France this spring.

In related company news, the Dutch builder signed an agreement with HNF Yachting in Turkey to represent the brand there. This adds to its dealers already in Russia and France.
