Dubai; 02 Aug 2023: Gulf Craft, one of the world’s leading boat and yacht manufacturers, together with its dealer, Australian Superyachts, will be showcasing the new Nomad 101 adventure yacht for the first time in Australia at the 2023 Sydney International Boat Show.
The Nomad 101 made its world debut at the Dubai International Boat Show in March 2023, perfectly highlighting Gulf Craft's new era of dynamic growth under the strategic theme, 'Legacy in Motion'. Gulf Craft’s vision for the future sees the company push boundaries through four core focus areas: Technology & Innovation, Path to Sustainability, Global Expansion and Next Generation.
Decades of experience combined with a passion to enhance the long-range adventure yachting experience has established the Nomad 101 as a new leader in its class. With sustainability taking centre stage onboard, she features a smart hull design that leads to fuel efficiency along with an array of innovative sustainable materials throughout.
The perfect balance of powerful engines, enhanced fuel efficiency and an impressive range of 3,100 nm at eight knots, unlock more adventurous and far-flung destinations for exploration - a unique and desirable proposition for the Australian market where Gulf Craft is seeing an increased appetite for adventure yachting vessels.
Mohamed Hussein Alshaali, Gulf Craft Chairman, said: "We have been selling our boats and yachts in Australia for over a decade now, in that time our loyal customers in the Pacific region have come to know us for never shying away from out-of-the-box thinking. When we built the new Nomad 101 we had our Australian customers in mind. With the Nomad 101 we have transformed what were once far-flung voyages into adventurous day trips. Our specialist team has cleverly balanced the ability to cover long ranges at reasonable speeds as well as faster speed capabilities for shorter day trips. Australia is quickly becoming one of our most important markets and we are witnessing a significant uplift in sales; we are looking forward to hearing what our esteemed Australian customers think of the new Nomad 101.”
Alongside the Nomad 101, Gulf Craft will also be showcasing the Majesty 72 and Oryx 379 at Sydney International Boat Show. Launched last year, the Majesty 72 (21.99m) boasts an exquisite design with distinguished engineering aiming to bridge the gap between the Majesty 62 and the best-selling superyacht Majesty 100. The Oryx 379 is defining a new era in sport cruising with quality craftsmanship and unprecedented functionality, offering performance, accommodation, smart design and features that Gulf Craft is renowned for.
About Nomad 101
The Nomad 101's harmonious proportions, ample interior space, and great outdoor entertainment features make her an excellent choice for those looking to enjoy long, leisurely cruises and take in the journey rather than just the destination.
With an actual LOA of 99 ft 6 in (30.34m), a 5-cabin layout, a flybridge and 192 GT, the Nomad 101 is the perfect yacht for varied cruising scenarios. The spacious living spaces with three crew accommodations and a captain's cabin are ideal for charter and owner-operated vessels.
About Majesty 72
Marking the latest collaboration between Majesty Yachts and Netherlands-based Phathom Studio, the Majesty 72’s interiors have been crafted with a seamless blend of luxurious, intrinsic beauty with Gulf Craft’s design philosophy in terms of luxury, practicality, comfort and technology. With an optional hydraulic swim platform and comfortable crew quarters, the Majesty 72 is an elegant fly-bridge motoryacht with a large fun factor and true cruising ambitions.
Powered by a Twin MAN V8-1200 engine, the Majesty 72 is capable of achieving a top speed of up to 24 knots* and is able to comfortably navigate shallow waters at a draft of 6 ft 8 in (2.03m). Thanks to its cleanly modelled surfaces and composite-hull that provides a smooth and dry ride, the Majesty 72’s opulent design will be a steppingstone for other models in the range.

The Oryx 379 is a technologically advanced 37 ft 9 in (11.5m) vessel with a 12 ft (3.64m) beam and 2 ft 3 in (0.69m) draft with timeless styling and classic elegance offering exhilarating performance alongside value and comfort for the whole family looking to take their adventures onto the open water.
Whether cruising or fishing, the Oryx 379 delivers an adrenaline-fueled experience combined with impressive comfort and style.
