Organized by Boat International Media, this year's World Superyacht Awards took place in the inspiring environment of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy. Mulder Shipyard's largest build to date, the 34-metre Solis was nominated for best yacht in her category.
Solis was independently reviewed by 20 judges: "The judges were immediately drawn to the Mulder 34-metre motor yacht Solis by her attractive and original exterior lines, while excellent reports from the judges that had visited her concerning her quality of build and other aspects that cannot be determined by text and photographs reinforced this interest.
Delving deeper, they discovered the vessel’s transatlantic range, state-of-the-art facilities and the very pleasing level of interior brightness and exterior visibility provided by her large use of glass, much of which has the ability to be opened. This, the judges felt, is a true ‘pocket’ superyacht built on a human scale that not only satisfies the demanding aesthetic requirements of her owners, who tend to shy away from ostentation, but also provide a high level of comfort and convenience.
The judges were so impressed by this yacht that the decision to award her the Neptune for this class was almost unanimous. Solis, the largest Mulder launched to date, was deemed a very worthy winner".
The event was hosted by Spanish actress and model Inés Sastre, where representatives of the yard, designers and naval architects of Solis were delighted to receive the Neptune with great pride. "This award is a mile-stone in our 78 years existence. The recognition of our quality by professionals from the industry is much appreciated", managing director Dick Mulder commented. "We would like to congratulate everyone involved in the build of this magnificent vessel."
Solis is a full custom build displacement yacht, designed and engineered with an unique philosophy. The serene environment of the yacht is inviting families to enjoy memorable moments.
