Mulder Favorite Line
Introduced in the 1950s, the Favorite line of cruisers from Dutch builder Mulder Shipyard still enjoys a cult following. Enthusiasts around the world gather on a regular basis to take to the water in their vintage Favorites. Now, on the heels of its 70th anniversary, Mulder is launching a line of Favorites for the 21st century. Its new line comprises three models—the 1400 (48 feet long), 1500 (51 feet), and 1600 (54 feet)—all of which share the open wheelhouse and smooth lines of the vintage Favorites. But instead of the steel frame and solid mahogany superstructure the originals had, the modern renditions will be built completely of aluminum. Each Mulder Favorite is available with either a rounded-bilge or a hard-chine hull, and can be powered by two engines that range from a pair of 150 hp motors to twin 435 hp IPS Volvos.
