Dubai: Gulf Craft will debut the much-awaited Majesty 111 superyacht at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) for the first time in 2023 after revealing its design concept at the event.
Gulf Craft, one of the top shipyards and manufacturers of luxury yachts, superyachts, leisure boats, and utility boats, will display a fleet of vessels at the event, with sizes ranging from 32 to 120 feet. Since the event’s start, Gulf Craft has taken part every year, and its growth into a global brand matches that of DIBS as a significant event on the boating calendar as well as Dubai’s popularity as a popular vacation spot for yacht owners and aficionados.
The all-new Majesty 111 superyacht is slashing in every way, including design, engineering, architecture, and technical features. It builds on the global success of the Majesty 100, Majesty 120, Majesty 140, and Majesty 175. It offers an updated production paradigm that was created after meticulous design, research, and study of current market trends. The Majesty 111 establishes a new industry benchmark and design precedent (interior and exterior) within its segment. It was created under the visionary direction of a seasoned yachtsman with more than 40 years of experience building yachts of the greatest quality, Mr. Mohammed Alshaali.
The Majesty 111 features a 6-cabin layout – 5 plush lower deck guest cabins and a cathedral-like 15sqm forward VIP cabin, a first in its size segment that redefines spatial planning. Optimized liveability and the seamless indoor-outdoor connection are achieved through large and tall expanses of glazing, nearly 40 percent more than a sub-100 ft yacht, for a light and airy atmosphere in the interiors and unrestricted exterior views throughout various segregated social zones on the various decks.
A large open deck for configurable furniture arrangements, an asymmetric sky lounge with 270-degree panoramic views, a foredeck plunge pool, ample storage spaces both inside and outside for marine toys, a 4M+ tender, jet ski at the swim platform are integrated through meticulous market research, and trend forecasting for a broader global market.
The Majesty 111 is built with innovative energy-saving systems onboard that optimize energy use. State-of-the-art CFD simulation tools and analysis helped us optimize the hull for superior performance. It enables the Majesty 111 to attain the highest possible speed using available power while achieving the least possible consumption at cruising speed. An optional heat recovery system extracts heat from chillers and generators to deliver full climate control and fresh hot water without consuming electricity.
Also featuring at the Show is the Majesty 120, a tri-deck superyacht packed with innovative features. At 37 metres, the Majesty 120 is constructed using advanced composites such as GRP and carbon fibre. The naval architecture and exterior design are the work of Gulf Craft’s in-house studio. The Majesty 100, Majesty 72 and Majesty 62 will also be on display.
Returning to the show, the Nomad 70 features a newly redesigned interior while drawing on the strengths, design elegance and performance of Gulf Craft’s Nomad 65 and 75 to meet the requirements of a discerning clientele. The explorer yacht, built with fibre-reinforced plastic, is 21.5 metres long (70’5″) and its lightweight material yields a draft of just 1.43M (4’7″). To host 10+2, the motor yacht has a displacement of 45 tons and hits a top speed of 30 knots, subject to the cleanliness of the hull and sea conditions. It is powered by a 1,200HP, 882KW, 2,300 RPM Twin MAN engine.
