Mulder’s 94 Voyager Firefly is a sail boat of its own kind. Ever imagined a beautiful and large luxury yacht floating so comfortably on the deep waters of the oceans? How about one that voyages for a long distance with ease and speed? Well this is the generation that has lived to see the coming up of such yacht. Very elegant and massive, Mulder’s 94 Voyager Firefly has a very large exterior.
