Exterior

Arriving at the dock the first impression of Tulip is her amazingly clean deck lay-out. The aftdeck is wide and open and comprises two huge lazarettes allowing for uncluttered storage of toys, spare parts, fenders etc.

The steering position features the enormous, trademark Frers, steering wheel with it's lower radius disappearing into a trench. And Frers came up with the ingenious idea of adjustable seats all around the wheel that rotate (electric hydraulic) inwards to hide for a flush deck when racing.

One large cockpit with really large and wide benches reveals the wish for a boat that can be actively sailed with friends. The custom-made folding table easily sits the whole crew for al fresco dining.

The ice-blue pilothouse stands out against the particularly flush deck, with long tinted windows surrounding the structure. Combined with her matching-coloured carbon rig, dark metallic brown paintwork, flat underbody and lifting-keel, the result is a highly on-trend boat.

Tulip is designed to be easily handled by a small crew, her large flush foredeck makes it easy to work. Examples include jib sheets that disappear under deck and reappear a metre before the primaries, and a hydraulically rotating anchor arm that stows forward of the large sail locker.

 

Interior

Inside, Tulip continues to do what she does on the outside. Dutch company Sinot Yacht Design designed the interior. Colours are bold while dark palisander wood contrasts with light smoked oak.

Tulip is set up to sail with six guests and two crew. These areas are well separated with guest accomodations all forward, and the galley, mess, engineroom and crewcabin aft of the raised saloon. The saloon is a leisure area with a card table, TV and library zones, plus a small chart table forward. The main feature is a zebrano wood table that lifts up, down, in and out electronically.

The huge, slightly curved pilothouse windows provide good views and sun-roof glazing over the entire central length ensures that plenty of daylight finds it's way into the interior. Bulkheads (honeycomb for weight and insulation) are lined with oak and details such as coves and borders are made of dark rosewood.

The two guest cabins forward of the saloon are split by the corridor and lifting keel box and have their own bathroom ensuite with heads and separate shower. The starboard guest cabin features a double bed plus pullman and the portside cabin features bunkbeds that can convert into a double, in such a way that each cabin can sleep three guests.

A forward master cabin with bathroom ensuite was chosen for optimal privacy. The cabin is very spacious and includes a vast in-built closet hidden behind curved doors that blend into the bulkhead.

The crewcabin for two crew, with it's own bathroom ensuite, is situated on portside aft and can be accessed through the galley and crew mess. The crew bathroom has a Miele washer/dryer combo.

 Tulip is extremely well soundproofed and insulated, making her remarkably slient and quiet, even with all systems running. There's no problem at all to sleep with the engine running.

Galley

The galley area is situated on starboard aft, a few steps down from the saloon and includes a crew mess on the aftside. The galley area has a large window by the stove and an overhead hatch for added daylight and ventilation. Workspace is plentiful and the galley is equipped with a gimballed Siemens 4-burner induction cooker and oven with extractor fan above, two sinks (one with macerator), custom made fridge and freezer.

Engineroom

The engine room is accessed through the galley and has an emegency escape through to the deck on portside. The Perkins Sabre turbodiesel main engine is centrally located and is connected to a ZF80A gearbox and 60mm SS shaft to the Brunton 4-blade varifold propellor, protected by propspeed.
