Gulf Craft to debut the Majesty 111 and reveal a brand-new superyacht at Dubai International Boat Show

The UAE News Report: Gulf Craft will showcase the much-anticipated Majesty 111 superyacht for the first time at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) 2023, following the unveiling of its design concept at last year’s event. It will also reveal a brand-new superyacht to global audiences for the very first time.

As one of the world’s leading shipyards and manufacturers of luxury yachts, superyachts, leisure, and utility boats, Gulf Craft will exhibit a fleet of boats and yachts at the event, ranging from 32 to 120 feet. With a presence each year since the event began, Gulf Craft’s rise into a global brand mirrors both DIBS rise as a major stop in the world’s boating event calendar and Dubai’s ascent as a leading destination for yacht owners and enthusiasts.     

Mohamed Hussein Alshaali, Gulf Craft Chairman, said: “As the leading yacht manufacturer in the region, we are proud to be part of the Dubai International Boat Show. We are grateful to the team in bringing this event to life yet again that celebrates the UAE’s vibrant yachting sector while paying tribute to our country’s rich maritime heritage. As in previous years, we will leverage the show to showcase our industry-leading yachts. This year we debut the Majesty 111, our superyacht anchored in our company’s proud legacy while guided by our vision of the future that prioritizes nature-inspired aesthetics built around sustainability.”

Show highlights

Building on the global success of the Majesty 100, Majesty 120, Majesty 140, and Majesty 175, the brand-new Majesty 111 superyacht is advanced in every aspect – design, engineering, architecture, and technical features. It introduces a cutting-edge production paradigm conceived through meticulous design, research, and the latest market trends. Developed under the visionary leadership of a veteran yachtsman with more than 40 years of experience building yachts of the highest quality, Mohammed Alshaali, the Majesty 111 sets a new industry benchmark and design precedent (interior and exterior) within its segment.  

Majesty 111’s exterior and interior styling is a joint effort between Gulf Craft and the Netherlands-based Phathom Studio. Phathom’s bold exterior lines, refined interior aesthetics, and yacht design flair complemented Gulf Craft’s seasoned yacht-building expertise to develop a new generation of fresh and energetic Majesty yachts. The Majesty 111 takes cues from her older sisters, Majesty 120 and Majesty 140 while maintaining her own unique personality and identity.

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% 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.

Apart from the Majesty 111, other key highlights of Gulf Craft’s participation this year include the global unveiling of a brand-new Nomad yacht while timeless masterpieces from Gulf Craft’s other brands will also be on display.

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.
