Mulder Shipyard’s 36m Delta One to debut in Monaco


36m Mulder ThirtySix Delta OneMulder Shipyard launched a new series of 36-metre motor yachts, the ThirtySix range. Delta One, the first model built, has become the Dutch yard’s flagship and will be debuting at the upcoming edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.

Delta One features naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, and exterior styling and interior design by UK-based design firm Claydon Reeves.

Delta One’s vertical bow, high bulwarks, and protected foredeck give it a seafaring look. Even though the yacht looks like she can comfortably cruise to the North Atlantic, Delta One was designed to spend most of her time in southern waters.

The sky bridge features a eight-person Jacuzzi, wet bar, dining table, sunbeds, and lounges turn the upper deck into a generous social platform, protected by a hardtop. On the deck below, the aft cockpit joining the saloon also offers plenty of outdoor space to enjoy alfresco dining or sitting by the water while at anchor.

As for the interior layout, full use of the 8-metre beam was made for Delta One’s saloon, master suite, and guest staterooms.  The master includes walk-in closets and en-suite bathroom, while offering private access to a seating area in the bow. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the saloon and dining area allow for plenty of natural light, while the foldout terrace offers the possibility to dine beside the sea.

The remarkable full-headroom beach club includes a bar and bathroom—a signature design for a yacht this size. Delta One also features a varied assortment of water toys, including a 6-metre Williams tender, two jet skis, and six Seabobs.

The all-aluminum fast-displacement motor yacht successfully underwent sea trials, where Force Six winds of 27 knots whipped waves up to 4-metre high. Powered by twin Caterpillar C18 engines, Delta One reached a top speed of 16.8 knots, and a cruising speed of 15 knots: she is one of the few yachts of this size to have transatlantic range.

Mike Reeves, one of the partners at Claydon Reeves, who worked closely with the owner and the shipyard to create a compelling new design, commented: “We pushed hard to redefine what can be achieved in a vessel under 300 gross tons. We’re very pleased with the results.”
