September 1, 2021, Umm Al Quwain: Gulf Craft celebrates Employee Appreciation Day at the shipyard and manufacturing facilities in the UAE. The event marked a historic milestone, as Gulf Craft prepares to proudly handover our flagship, the Majesty 175 superyacht to her owner. Pushing the boundaries in superyacht production, the Gulf Craft team worked for four years to build this magnificent composite megayacht, the company’s largest project to date.
On this occasion, Gulf Craft Chairman, Mohammed Hussein AlShaali visited each and every department involved in the building process to personally thank them and expressed his appreciation for the team effort, hard work, and dedication in creating the masterpiece.
“There were challenges to the size of yachts we could build, but we strived to overcome these limitations especially during the current global situation, due to the pandemic, social distancing obligations, and other related factors. Today I feel proud and content that the journey we started 40 years ago and the hard work and sweat of so many people throughout those years proved to be in the right place. I feel that everyone in Gulf Craft should be proud of making such a dream come true. She does not only give a sense of pride to the nation but also proves to be a breakthrough vessel on the global stage. But that's not all. I take this opportunity to thank all the departments from purchasing, engineering, production, marketing, commercial, finance, admin, and human resources for continuous planning and supervision for the project from start to end.” said Chairman, Mohammed Alshaali.
