Project Crystal, a 70 meter expedition yacht by Netherlands-based Mulder Design, features ample use of glass. Her spectacular stairwell is creating surprising views and enhancing the feel of outdoor living. Project Crystal’s rugged hull design with Ice Class is comforting when visiting the colder parts of the planet.
“By using state of the art hull design, modern propulsion systems and ride control, long range cruising will not just be a crew’s task to bring the vessel from one interesting area to another, but a pleasant stay on board for owner and guests while in transit,” say naval architects from Mulder Design, the creative force behind such famous design such as Spectre, Waterdream 65′ California, Waterdream S-1100, Sestante, Majesty 200, Benetti Fast 224, Zeelander Yachts Z55, Benetti Fast 184, VanDutch 75, Sossego Comfort 22, Explorer Yacht 36m, Mulder Design 72.00 m, and Aston Martin Powerboat AM37, to name just a few.
The luxury expedition yacht layout features: a private owner’s deck, a large private area for the owner, accommodation for 12 including owner in charter or 14 in private use, open/closed fitness room
A certified helicopter landing area is a must for a yacht of this caliber.
The sheltered tender deck for tenders up to 34’ offers space for the large variation of water toys, including the 3 person submarine.
For the propulsion Mulder Design offers various options: twin diesel engines driving conventional propellers, hybrid propulsion combining main diesel engines with PTI gearboxes for electric operation up to 12 knots, a full diesel electric propulsion through pod-propulsors.
Studio Mulder Design was founded by Frank Mulder in 1979. Bas Mulder joined the company in 2000, and the two have worked in close partnership ever since – along with a first-class team of design specialists, naval architects and engineers. Mulder Design’s approach is to focus on the big picture, methodically and repeatedly going through every element of the process. Each part is as important as the other and everything is interconnected.
