In Review: Gulf Craft at Dubai International Boat Show 2022

Gulf Craft had phenomenal success at the Dubai International Boat Show as the event continues to serve as a key platform for the shipyard to showcase its latest offerings. This year's edition saw the announcement and revelation of the very first images of a brand-new superyacht; the Majesty 111, the world premiere of the tri-deck superyacht, the Majesty 120, the adventurous Nomad 70 SUV, and the versatile SilverCat 40 CC catamaran. All the models from Gulf Craft’s diversified range of crafts – ranging from fishing boats and family cruisers to state-of-the-art superyachts were received well with enthusiasm and great interest by visitors.

Dubai's growing stature as a superyacht production hub and maritime capital of the world was mirrored at the show with a remarkable footfall. At this global platform, Gulf Craft was poised well to consolidate its position even further in this favorable home market scenario. Add to this, what better place to kick off Gulf Craft's 40th-anniversary celebrations than during the industry’s mega-event.
