Despite coming in at 780 GT, she can cruise through areas of just 2.25 metres of water.
Her exterior and interior design are by Cristiano Gatto Design Studio in Italy. The naval architecture is by Massimo Gregori of Yankee Delta Studio. Her layout accommodates guests across seven staterooms as well as space for a crew of up to 10 members with six large crew cabins and private captain’s accommodation. Stand-out design features include a 5-metre infinity pool at the forward deck and a hybrid sky-lounge that can convert into an open sun deck.

She said: “We are excited to have taken this beauty out to sea. She has performed brilliantly on her first sea trial covering multiple factors, including the engines at full speed, the pair of generators, and fin stabilisers as well as the navigation and telecommunication systems. Preliminary noise and vibration levels are outstanding, and these will continue to improve when the entire interior elements are completed.”Photo: Gulf CraftWith two fixed pitch six-blade propellers, Majesty 175’s electricity supply comes from 175 kW Kohler generators and two pairs of TRAC fin stabilisers. Safety features include a SOLAS rescue boat and an emergency generator.Photo: Gulf CraftThe Majesty 175 superyacht undertook a series of inclination experiments for multiple factors at sea in which she reached a top speed of 17 knots powered by her twin heavy duty MTU 12V 4000 M63 engines, delivering 1500kW each.
