The first Bellagio begins taking shape at the Mulder Shipyard...

Yard Updates

The build time for this 16m sports yacht will be around a year; Bellagio Yachts will present her at Cannes ‘12.

JULY 2011

In The Netherlands the Mulder Shipyard has begun fabricating the first Vripack-designed-and-engineered all-aluminium 16m (52ft 6in) Bellagio. She is being constructed under a ‘Built by Mulder’ label for Dutch company Bellagio Yachts of Voorschoten.
She is a striking design, characterised by her long foredeck, sporty wheelhouse and raked stern. Vripack says the principal influences as regards her lines were sportscars of the 1920s and 1930s.
She will be powered 435hp Volvo IPS600, either twins or triples; the latter option would deliver up to 40 knots.
The first Bellagio will debut at Cannes ‘12.
