Gulf Craft Selects Phuket For Two Regional Launches
Published: Friday, 09 January 2015
Gulf Craft, one of the world’s leading superyacht-building shipyards will be highlighting its support for Asia’s maritime industry at the Phuket International Boat Show (PIMEX), which runs Jan 8-11. The company will showcase its line-up of luxury yachts and boats for the 12th consecutive year.
One of the most anticipated boat shows in Asia, PIMEX offers an idyllic backdrop for boat manufacturers, owners, and enthusiasts to interact, drawing large and impressive vessels to Phuket’s panoramic coastline. The show attracted more than 3,800 visitors in 2014.
Gulf Craft will use the event to regionally launch the latest models of the Oryx, a brand of high-performance sport yachts and cruisers, as well as Majesty Yachts, the company’s line of luxury fly-bridge yachts and superyachts.
The Oryx 42 offers spacious lounging areas above and below deck, with sleeping capacity for up to four people. Built for luxury and comfort, with an eye for detail and excellent craftsmanship, the Oryx brand is well respected in Asia already, paving the way for the regional launch of the Oryx 42 at PIMEX.
The Asian launch of the Gulf Craft Majesty 48 - a luxury, fly-bridge yacht - has been highly anticipated. With an extraordinary amount of topside deck for passenger enjoyment, the Majesty 48, at more than 48 feet, is ideal for families to comfortably entertain a dozen people from its viewing decks, and even more inside the cabin, which boasts large windows. This yacht has been designed expressly for leisure cruising, making it the perfect choice for those interested in island hopping while taking in the sweeping views of the stunning, azure blue Andaman Sea from the spacious and luxurious fly-bridge.
At PIMEX, Gulf Craft will also be featuring the latest models of Silvercraft, its brand of centre console fishing boats and family cruisers. Built for coastal or open sea fishing, the Silvercraft 36 HT is robust and easy to handle, keeping the owner protected from the sun and rain.
Gulf Craft, based in the United Arab Emirates, is investing US$100 million over the next five years in developing a world-class facility for the manufacturing of mega and superyachts at Dubai Maritime City.
