Dubai – MENA Herald: Gulf Craft impressed crowds at the Dubai International Boat Show today with the global unveiling of its latest innovations, including two luxury superyachts in its Majesty Yachts brand, and an oceangoing yacht from the Nomad Yachts series.

The debuts were part of the Emirates-based shipyard’s impressive display of 14 bespoke yachts and boats – valued at approximately AED 190 million.

With a strong legacy and solid track record of redefining sea travel for the world’s boat enthusiasts, Gulf Craft continues to invest heavily in research and development as part of its unremitting efforts to inspire people to explore the wondrous possibilities of on-water living.

Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft, said: “The Dubai International Boat Show resonates deeply with Gulf Craft, a company born in the UAE, and we look forward to the event every year to reaffirm our level of commitment to our customers, and to devoted seafarers in the region. The show serves as not only a key international platform for showcasing our latest craft, but also as an opportunity to represent the UAE as a global player in the leisure marine industry.”
“The maritime heritage is deeply entrenched in our culture and tradition, and by pushing the boundaries with innovation, we have successfully transformed the seagoing experience to one that was once thought never conceivable,” Al Shaali added.

New to Gulf Craft’s Majesty Yachts brand of luxury fly-bridge motor yachts are the Majesty 110 and the Majesty 90, both combining powerful engineering and advanced technology with immaculate design.

At 33 meters in length, Gulf Craft has taken its decades of experience combined with the need to elevate the yachting experience to a different class by creating the Majesty 110. A unique venture into the world of tri-deck (three decks), the Majesty 110 has ample interior space, abundant outdoor entertainment features, and numerous amenities, including a spacious garage that is large enough to store a dinghy and a Jet Ski. Whether you are at the aft deck swim platform or at the upper deck’s Jacuzzi basking in the sun or at the sun deck enjoying unparalleled views while listening to your favorite music from the state-of-the-art Bang and Olufsen speakers, Gulf Craft has emerged not just as a superyacht builder, but also as a creator of timeless masterpieces.

Like the Majesty 110, the Majesty 90 echoes premium craftsmanship in every detail – from leather furnishings and parquet flooring in main saloon through to the marble countertops in the four en suite staterooms. At 27.5 meters, the Majesty 90 features a breathtaking 360 degree view from its interior. The unmatched onboard space allows passengers to move effortlessly inside and outside the yacht, giving the owner the chance to customize the fly-bridge to either fit a dinghy, Jet Ski, or an even larger seating area.

The distinguished yacht and boat builder also globally premiered the newest addition to its Nomad Yachts long-range series, the Nomad 55 – designed for those with an insatiable appetite for extended sea travel.

Featuring a beautifully adorned main saloon, a fully-equipped and exceptionally large galley, four spacious guest cabins, three bathrooms, and a room for two crew, the Nomad 55 takes the five-star experience into the midst of the ocean. Passengers aboard the Nomad 55 can enjoy breathtaking views from the yacht’s two electric balconies, or dine on the yacht’s notably spacious fly-bridge while watching the sun set into the world’s luminescent waters.

Similar to its sistership the Nomad 65, the Nomad 55 emanates world-class engineering from the inside-out, with a hybrid hull designed by celebrated British yacht designer Andrew Wolstenholme. Reaching speeds of up to 25 knots using twin 690 hp engines, the Nomad 55 can travel long distances without having to make frequent fuel stops, allowing its passengers to enjoy an uninterrupted cruising experience.

Next to the 2016 global premieres, Gulf Craft is showcasing its award-winning Majesty 122, Majesty 135, and other 2016 models.

Guests can visit Gulf Craft at the Dubai International Boat Show at stand number MD-30. The region’s leading marine luxury, leisure, and lifestyle event takes place from 1-5 March at the Dubai International Marine Club Mina Seyahi.
