The superyacht model was named ‘Best Asian Built Yacht’ at Asia Boating Awards 2017, held in Singapore by Asia-Pacific Boating and China Boating magazines.
The owner commented: “Each yacht I’ve bought from Gulf Craft has been a joy to own. The build quality is outstanding and clients are treated with the utmost consideration. Working with the team to customize the Majesty 155 was a pleasure – I had different choices of luxurious materials and layout options to choose from.

“I’m delighted with the personalised purchase and look forward to many happy days that my family and friends will spend cruising on the superyacht."
Erwim Bamps, CEO of Gulf Craft, said: “The magnificent Majesty 155 merges powerful engineering and exceptional comfort and craftsmanship. It’s a floating palace for refined, discerning owners who expect the same level of luxury on the ocean as they experience on land.
“Gulf Craft’s product range has been growing in line with the personal success of our brand loyal clientele. Our trade-in policy offers existing Gulf Craft yacht owners a cost-effective upgrade possibility in their aspirations for ever further horizons.”
Powered by twin 2,011-horsepower MTU engines, the superyacht also has two 125kw generators and a fuel capacity of 15,260 US gallons (57,770 litres).
At 156ft (47.6m) long, the Majesty 155 is Gulf Craft’s largest completed yacht model to date, with a beam of 31ft 6in (9.6m). It can reach a top speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. The recently delivered hull Sehamia has 550gt and a range of over 4,200nm at 11 knots.
The Majesty 155’s eight staterooms sleep up to 18 people, while its five crew cabins can accommodate nine. The owner’s stateroom is situated on the upper deck, in contrast to its location in its predecessor on the main deck.
Curly maple veneer has been used extensively on the yacht, while an expensive variety of marble, Statuario White, can be found in the owners’ cabin. Counters, splashbacks and tabletops in a kaleidoscope of colours are made from stones including amethyst, onyx, chrysoprase, jasper, and lapis lazuli.
The galley is fitted with Miele appliances and Franke accessories, while the superyacht benefits from Bang & Olufsen television and entertainment systems for sound. Washrooms feature Dornbracht faucets.
