The Netherlands: New Cooperation Between Mulder Shipyard and Omega Architects
The construction of the new 30-metre Mulder 98 Flybridge is currently in full swing. In consultation with the client, Mulder Shipyard commissioned Frank Laupman of Omega Architects to design the interior of this boat. Omega has previously designed the interior of the second Bellagio, which was recently sold by Mulder Shipyard.
The Bellagio is constructed under the Built by Mulder label.
Work is presently ongoing on the 30-metre aluminium hull of the new Mulder 98 Flybridge. Once the hull is completed, the next step will be the installation of the piping for the various systems. The entire interior of the yacht will be ‘floating’ in order to ensure optimal sound and vibration insulation.
The interior consists largely of American walnut, both stained and natural, and the design comprises striking contrasts in both colours and materials. For instance, there are many leather panels, while various brushed stainless steel details create a modern ambiance. The entire interior is built in house by Mulder Interior Construction, guaranteeing perfect workmanship and quality.
The construction of the first Bellagio is in full swing and the yacht will be completed in the course of this year. Furthermore, a second Bellagio was sold last month to a client in Russia. This yacht will have an interior designed by Omega Architects, just like the Mulder 98 Flybridge. The interior will be bright and modern, with a very open character. The second Bellagio will be used by the owner for daytrips. Mulder Shipyard has high expectations from this new model.
Mulder Shipyard is currently working together with several other naval architects in addition to Omega Architects. This portfolio of designers makes it possible for the yard to translate all the wishes and ideas of its clients into a superlative design in the best possible way.
