Published: Monday, 08 June 2015
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Rashid Al Mu'allah, member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Ruler of Umm Al Quwain, Gulf Craft on Saturday unveiled the Majesty 155, the UAE shipbuilder’s largest-ever, fly-bridge motor superyacht.
The unveiling at the Majesty Yachts shipyard in Umm Al Quwain, UAE proved to be a welcome addition to the ever-expanding Gulf Craft portfolio, and served as further testament to the company’s decades-old, trust-based consultative approach to growing its business.
“Gulf Craft’s track record has been consistently recognized on a global level,” says Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft. “The conception and creation of the Majesty 155 has further pushed our capabilities as a company, creating even higher expectations from our customers around the world.”
Erwin Bamps, CEO of Gulf Craft, believes the unveiling of the Majesty 155 is significant for a number of reasons.
“This important milestone demonstrates our commitment to exceeding the ever-evolving needs and wants of global yachting enthusiasts,” says Bamps. “We understand that our customers have a genuine appreciation for opulence, and would like to experience the same lavish lifestyle and entertainment on water that they do on land. The Majesty 155 was crafted to provide a truly deluxe experience that has never before been available from Gulf Craft, as we continue our drive to gain market share.”
The pioneering Majesty 155 is Gulf Craft’s first displacement superyacht. At 155 feet (47 meters), the Majesty 155 offers owners the experience of luxury and comfort at its finest.
Owners of the Majesty 155 can enjoy an unsurpassed luxury experience from the fountain on the sundeck to the waterfall that cascades from the rear sundeck into the Jacuzzi.
The owner’s stateroom balcony is another distinct feature of this superyacht, allowing owners to enjoy the panoramic seascapes from the privacy of their own room. The dedicated cigar lounge within the stateroom features a ceiling crafted from genuine cigar leaves.
Those looking to spend time under the sun will find comfort in the superyachts dedicated beach club situated at the rear entrance, fully equipped with a pantry, a retractable television, and a spacious lounging area. The lower deck also features a spacious garage, which can house a tender and two jet skis.
An elevator that carries guests between the lower, main, and upper decks offers added convenience, and a second balcony in the main saloon, along with a custom-made television – built to withstand all types of weather conditions – outside the upper deck seating area, further bolster the capacity to entertain. Guests will also find the upper deck’s indoor lounge to be quite remarkable, with its huge windows affording all inside unparalleled panoramic views.
Onlookers of the Majesty 155 will be dazzled by the underwater lights that surround the entire base of the superyacht, illuminating its commanding presence as it sets sail into the open seas.
Opulent in style and elegant in design, the Majesty 155 also boasts exceptional performance. The power of twin 2,011 hp MTU 12V 4,000 M63 engines provide excellent fuel efficiency and an ability to cover a range of over 4,200nm with an approximate maximum speed of 16 knots.
Massimo Gregori Grgič, of Yankee Delta Studio in Italy, is responsible for the naval architecture of the Majesty 155.
The Majesty 155’s hull design allows for low fuel consumption, long-range capability, and incredible comfort. The 9.60 m beam gives large space inside and allows for an even greater stability. The hull design was tank-tested in Italy, and the actual ship proves to perform above all expectations. She is easy to handle, stable, and quiet - leaving minimum wakes behind.
