Mulder Favorite 1500. Continuity of generations

Share:

The Dutch company Mulder – a family-owned shipyard in the third generation. For over 70 years, she is engaged in the construction of semi-custom and custom boats in traditional Nordic style. His popularity in Europe and America, she won thanks to unprecedented quality, superb nautical performance and reliability. Her new ship Favorite 1500 – another confirmation of the high reputation of the shipyard.

In 2010, Mulder Shipyard has decided to re-breathe life into a successful series of boats of the last century, but only to replace a wooden building with a modern – aluminum. Initially Favorite 1500 has been designed for personal use Mulder family, but the boat has turned out so good that it immediately appreciated lovers measured rest on the water.

It was created in collaboration with Vripack Naval Architects and design offices Guido de Groot. Generally, Favourites Favorite 1500 – a striking example of the sea retro, sort of a lobster boat in the European manner. It has all the components of this classic shipbuilding: rounded and somewhat “snub” nose almost straight line sides, sloping feed, as well as the specific form of the bottom to reduce the water flow rate. This made it possible to reduce the release time in planing mode and increase the maximum speed.

If you look, it is already the 7th boat named ‘Summer’ from the updated Favorite line, but with each new body shipyard makes a list of major improvements. Although at first glance the changes that have occurred since 1500 Favorite, not immediately apparent, they are quite significant. The first refinement touched the body. Thanks to new materials, aluminum composite managed to do better by 10% and significantly increase the maximum speed.

Mulder – not a sports yacht, although its speed of 25 knots pleasantly surprised. All maneuvers are performed very calm, and the ease and smoothness with which she listens to helm more inherent coupe family type. These impressive speed performance cruiser Favorite 1500 obliged the two diesel engines for Volvo Penta D6 435 hp each. Another innovation has touched the garage. His expanded enough to “park” the 3-meter tender.

Mulder Favorite 1500 is positioned as a day-cruiser, but in fairness it should be noted that the yacht is capable of more than just a one-day cruises. Indeed, there is everything you need for a comfortable stay: a full kitchen, large open cockpit, two guest cabins, saloon with dinettoy, bathroom with shower. Favorite Comfort 1500 is comparable with the atmosphere of a country house, and ‘Summer’ to this magnificence added floor heating in all rooms.

The aft cockpit is made in classical traditions lobster boat, but for lobster in the sea, of course, no one on it does not come out. As a rule, this type of boat is not huge lounges for sunbathing, but here appreciate friendly gatherings at the table. That is why the spacious cockpit has been substantially completed, and now there are three sofas and a folding table.

Sliding glass doors and windows, sinks to the drive, on a clear day make the boundary between the stern and an indoor lounge purely notional.
In case of unsuitable weather inside the cabin there is another dining room with soft U-shaped sofa. Dining table in a typical Scandinavian style – with a deliberately rough edges treated. Generally, the interior was very bright and homely – this space is filled with light, not only because virtually panoramic coverage, but also through the skylight.

Kitchen grown significantly in size and is located in the forward portion of the lower deck – in a place atypical for her. But, despite the difference in levels, it remains within the social space of the interior. Looking at such a kitchen can only admire the elaborate functionality. Everything is there for those who want to cook full meals even in the sea: a sink, microwave, stove, oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. The rest of the place, but it is still enough, occupied storage systems. Even under the stairs that separate the kitchen from the cabin, hidden locker with a double bottom.

All cabins are able to make quite spacious and comfortable, and double walls reduce noise and vibration. Master suite owners with a large double bed and private bathroom, while the second cabin – separate beds, but without bathroom. True, Mulder offers by the space of one of the closets to organize a personal shower room for the guest cabins.

Details and trim Favorite 1500 ‘Summer’- another reason to mention the quality of Mulder. Calm natural wood tones and classical furniture blends perfectly with each other. Excellent fit of joints and visible upon closer inspection steps and caps that cover every screw.
