Live from MYS 2016: Gulf Craft to enter 50m+ market

Written by Charl van Rooy

During an industry announcement onboard the 48.5-metre superyacht Escape, Middle Eastern yacht builder Gulf Craft revealed its intentions of stepping up the size of yachts it will deliver in the future. The announcement came with the unveiling of two new superyacht concepts, ready to be constructed with the backing of a passionate superyacht client.

The new Majesty 200 and Majesty 175 showcases Gulf Craft’s ability to offer clients an increasingly more complex and advanced product. Both these 53-metre and 61-metre concepts are designed to be built using composite materials, continuing the yard’s skills in the use of the material.

Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft, comments on the company’s decision to push the boundaries in composite superyacht construction: “Our aim is to continue redefining superyacht production using advanced composites to a size once thought impossible, all the while creating bespoke cruising experiences for our customers. Our ceaseless determination has led to this very moment, one where research and development meetmegayacht design.”

The models are designed to feature luxurious interior spaces with grand outdoor decks and even retractable helipads, but the layout and final design remainopen to interpretation to potential clients.

"Gulf Craft’s spirit has always been one of great ambition,” added Gulf Craft CEO, Erwin Bamps. “There were challenges to the size of yachts we can build, but we strived to overcome these limitations – in the last three years alone we successfully launched the Majesty 155, the Majesty 135, and the Majesty 122, and we have received multiple successive orders for each.”
