UAE, 21 Oct, 2019: Gulf Craft, the Emirates only superyacht builder, is entering the U.S. market for the first time with the debut of the Majesty 140 and Majesty 100 at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, set to place from October 30-November 3, 2019.
Gulf Craft Majesty Yachts Chairman, Mohammed Hussain 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 outstanding quality, craftsmanship, and personalization with the attractive benefit of timely delivery.
Designed to create a “oneness with the sea,” the yachts are distinguished by expansive deck areas and large indoor/outdoor flybridges; extendable balconies; fully equipped water sports garages; and beach clubs, where guests can be closer to the water. Spacious salons and generous entertainment areas framed by walls of seamless windows carry the feeling of openness to the interior, making it a signature feature of all Gulf Craft Majesty Yachts.
Greg Terraglio, Managing Partner, Majesty Yachts USA said: “We are extremely encouraged by the response that Gulf Craft Majesty Yachts has already received. Even before the formal U.S. launch, we have secured commitments for the sale of both a Majesty 140 and Majesty 100.”
The Majesty 140 features extensive glass side windows that draw in the sunlight and offer stunning panoramic views. The tri-deck superyacht features an opulently finished main deck, full beam owner’s stateroom with sweeping views, a private extendable balcony, and en-suite featuring a jacuzzi tub.
The Majesty 140 is a collaboration between the shipyard’s in-house Design Studio and the Cristiano Gatto Design Team which was responsible for the interior design.
At 398 gross tons, the Majesty 140 is built under Bureau Veritas classification requirements in compliance to LY3 / MCA Cayman Island registry. Powered by twin MTU 16V 2,600hp engines, the yacht is capable of a top speed of 20 knots and cruises comfortably at 16 knots. It boasts an extended range of 4,750nm at 10 knots. Five Majesty 140 yachts have been sold since its introduction at the 2018 Dubai International Boat Show.
The Majesty 140 was recently awarded the Best Interior Design at the 18th edition of the World Yachts Trophies at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 for Best Semi-Displacement or Planning Motor Yachts from 30-50m. In 2018, the Majesty 140 was also awarded "Best Yacht Layout" at the World Yacht Trophies in Cannes.
Gaining worldwide attention since its 2017 launch in Dubai, the Majesty 100 is characterized by its unique enclosed sky-lounge and a powerful yet efficient propulsion system. Open-plan layout, lavish interiors and ample lounging areas including two folding balconies, four guest staterooms, and a full-beam master suite earn its superyacht status. Timeless exterior styling and uncompromised naval engineering are finished with exquisite interior workmanship. Twin 1,900hp MAN engines produce a top speed of 23 knots. Cruising at just over 12 knots, the boat has an impressive range of 1,050 nautical miles.
