The brand of Gulf Craft, largest yacht builder in the Middle East, is entering the US market with Majesty 140 and Majesty 100. The debut of Majesty Yachts is scheduled for Flibs in Florida, October 30 to November 3.
The expansion of Majesty Yachts, and of the parent company Gulf Craft, is a matter of fact. We told you about the arrival to Europe of Oryx and Silvercraft, another two brands of the huge boats, yachts and superyachts manufacturing group. Now it’s time for Majesty Yachts to debut in USA, in particular at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. With some good competitive advantages.
Let’s start with a statement
As Gulf Craft and Majesty Yachts chairman Mohammed Alshaali said “The efficiencies of our Emirates based manufacturing facility and diversified culture enable us to introduce a very high-quality product to the U.S. market with savings of as much as 20 percent compared to currently available competitive yacht offerings”.
The company’s vertically integrated build methodology enables Gulf Craft to provide quality, craftsmanship and customization with the benefit of timely delivery.
Designed to merge with the surrounding environment, Majesty yachts feature large deck areas and indoor/outdoor flybridges; extendable balconies; garages with all the gear for water sports; and beach clubs where guests can be close to the water. Salons and entertainment areas framed by walls of seamless windows carry the feeling of openness to the interior, and mark a signature feature of all Majesty Yachts.
The first two units to reach the American shores will be Majesty 140 and Majesty 100.
The Majesty 140 is a tri-deck superyacht with extensive glass side windows, a luxurious main deck, full beam master stateroom, a private extendable balcony and en-suite featuring a jacuzzi tub. The yacht is a collaboration between the shipyard’s in-house Design Studio and the Cristiano Gatto Design Team which was responsible for the interior design.
Powered by twin MTU 16V 2,600 hp engines, she can reach 20 knots and cruise at 16, while the range at 10 knots is an impressive 4,750nm. Five Majesty 140 units have been sold since her introduction at the 2018 Dubai International Boat Show.
Majesty 100 is characterized by an enclosed sky-lounge and an open-plan layout including two folding balconies, four guest staterooms and a full-beam master suite. Twin 1,900 hp MAN or CAT engines produce a top speed of 23 knots, but at 12 knots the range is 1,050 nautical miles.
The Range of Gulf Craft Majesty Yachts
In addition to the 140 and 100, Majesty offers 175, 155, 122, 120 and 110-foot models.
The Majesty 175, due for launch at the end of 2019, will be the largest mega yacht in the world to be built fully as a commercial yacht over 500 gross tons using advanced composite materials. The Cristiano Gatto designed tri-deck 490-ton vessel will have trans-Atlantic capability with a range of more than 4,000 nautical miles.
