Gulf Craft today marked a momentous occasion as it officially handed over the Majesty 175, the world’s largest composite production superyacht, to her owner since its unveiling in Dubai in May 2021. Fully manufactured in the UAE at Gulf Craft’s integrated in-house production facility in Umm Al Quwain, the Serenity M.R.F. completed a series of sea trials demonstrating world-class stability and maneuverability on the high seas of the Arabian Gulf.
The Majesty 175’s exterior and interior design are by the award-winning Cristiano Gatto Design Studio in Italy while the naval architecture is by Massimo Gregori of the Yankee Delta Studio. Her stand-out features include a gym, five meter infinity pool at the forward deck, and a hybrid sky lounge that can be converted to an open sun deck. The pool has a swim-jet system that creates a constant current of water. She is 56.4m long and has a gross tonnage of 780. She can effortlessly cruise low-draft areas, drawing just 2.05m of water, as she is built using advanced composite materials such as carbon fibre and vinyl ester.
With the full speed of 16.5 knots and cruising speed of 10 knots, Majesty 175 has a range of 4,000 nautical miles, making her a transoceanic vessel.
Now officially handed over to her owner, the world’s largest composite-built superyacht will visit global marinas and exotic destinations.
Speaking at the handover ceremony at Gulf Craft’s Umm Al Quwain shipyard, Gulf Craft Chairman, Mohammed Hussein Alshaali said; “The Majesty 175 is our jewel superyacht, which demonstrates our capability to manufacture trailblazing vessels fully in-house here in the UAE. The innovative composite design and engineering of the Majesty 175 are a testament to our position as a pioneer in the global yachting industry. We have created an exceptional world-first vessel on our home soil which was four years in the making - despite the challenges of the pandemic. It is a very proud moment to see her leave our facilities and set off on voyages around the globe.”
Since the company’s inception in 1982, Gulf Craft has grown to become one of the top seven shipyards in the world: once a builder of small fishing boats in its modest premises, which was a genuine passion for Gulf Craft, they then established their credentials as a leader of innovation and technology in the yachting industry. With five brands in their product portfolio ranging from 31 to 175 feet, Gulf Craft manufactures yachts and boats that appeal to a wide audience, such as touring passenger vessels, Silvercraft family day boats, Oryx Sport Cruisers, Nomad Explorer Yachts, and the flagship Majesty Yachts.
