The 37.5m Ghost II is said to be the biggest ever vessel to exhibit at the show, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
Erwin Bamps, CEO of Gulf Craft, said: “Australia’s market continues to grow in importance for Gulf Craft with an increase in the number of yachts and boats sold and delivered to the continent, emphasising our position as builders for a global audience.
“With access to stunning coastlines and pristine waters, Australian seafarers have a deep knowledge and appreciation for boating. We take great pleasure in noting an increased demand from down under for well-built products that meet both safety requirements and world class standards.”
The Majesty 122 Ghost II was built specifically for the Australian charter market and adheres to Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) Class 2C, 1E and 1D Commercial Vessel Survey regulations.
The superyacht includes five en-suite staterooms, a fully equipped galley, and offers panoramic views from its extended balcony. Also present is a garage large enough to house a Castoldi 16ft tender and a jet ski.
The vessel was delivered to Australia late last year, having won Best Asian Built Yacht award at the 2015 Asia Pacific Boating Awards, the Best Yacht Installation award and the 2015 CEDIA Awards, and the Quality and Value Award at the 2016 World Superyacht Awards.
Nomad 65 will return to the Sydney Show for the second time. Dubbed as “mini-explorer and SUB of the Sea”, the yacht features a roomy lounge, dining areas and the cockpit on the main deck.
Bamps said: “The Nomad 65 was extremely well received at last year’s show; it is an ideal fit for the Australian market which is why we’ve put it back on display again this year.”
Captain Richard Morris of Australian Superyachts, said: “Gulf Craft is the only international manufacturer of superyachts that has successfully delivered fully compliant superyachts built directly to strict Australian Commercial Vessel safety standards.
“It gives us great pleasure to distribute commercially certified vessels of this calibre, not only do they meet the highest safety standards but also offer a range of fiscal benefits that significantly reduce acquisition and running costs, and attaining higher resale prices”.
