Mulder Shipyard shared the exciting news that they have purchased their fourth facility in Enkhuizen, located in the north west of the Netherlands.
The new shipyard exists of two hull construction sheds suitable for yachts of up to 50 metres, and a separate shed for interior construction and teak decks which Mulder will make use of in the years to come.
This in-depth investment will strengthen the position of Mulder Shipyard by optimising both delivery time and quality, whilst ensuring that it is not dependent on other parties. “This heavy-duty construction shed has historically facilitated the build of multiple yachts, including the 43-metre superyacht Latitude and 49-metre Nassima amongst other vessels. We have purchased the facilities, including the existing machinery and inventory, so we will be able to start up and be operational in no time,” says Mulder’s Commercial Director, Nick Mulder.
The shipyard and its employees will be managed by Jacco Klein, who has previously worked as technical director of the facility.
Klein comments: “I previously built the hulls of the 29-metre Firefly and the 30-metre Mahalo for Mulder and have known Dick and Nick Mulder for more than 20 years. I am very excited for the future and feel proud to be working at this fantastic facility once again!”
Enkhuizen, one of the most prosperous Dutch cities in the 17th century, is a historic harbour town, and an excellent location for a hull construction yard.
Thanks to its position bordering the Marker- and Ijsselmeer and its convenient connection to both the North Sea and inland waters, vessels can be transported promptly to the Mulder yards in Zoeterwoude and Voorschoten for further and final construction phases.
