Gulf Craft has chosen to display Majesty 100 in Germany due to the warm response she has already received at major yacht shows worldwide.
Considered as an entry-level in the Majesty Superyacht Collection, her 32m encompass several relaxation areas including two balconies, a sky lounge, and a generously proportioned raised wheelhouse from which passengers can watch the captain in action.
With a cruising range of 1,050nm, the Majesty 100 can sail at up to 23 knots due to her two powerful 1,900 horsepower MAN engines, while the economy speed of 12.3 knots is efficient.
The superyacht’s fin stabilisers and V-Drive propulsion offer a quiet ride, while her remote-control steering system makes docking a breeze.
“The Majesty 100 is one of our latest superyachts, and the facilities at the exhibition space enable visitors to see her up close, rather than in a brochure,” said Gulf Craft’s Chief Executive Officer, Erwin Bamps.
“She gathered a lot of attention at Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show earlier this year, so we believe she deserves to continue on her European tour.”
Launched close to five decades ago, Boot Düsseldorf is considered a benchmark for the international boat and water sports industry.
Bamps said that as the sector’s first main fair of the calendar year, and the last one in the sales cycle, it helps manufacturers schedule production for the upcoming season, especially those that build yachts.
“It is an incredibly important fair for us, always giving us valuable market insights and new contacts,” said Bamps.
“More than 1,800 exhibitors have confirmed their attendance already, and we look forward to mingling with trade and private visitors from many countries and sectors.”
Drettmann International expanded its portfolio as the exclusive sales partner of Gulf Craft's multi-award-winning yachts for Europe, Russia and Ukraine in 2017 – another important step towards expansion and internationalisation for the Bremen-based company.
“We want to bring our experience gained over several years into the sector, and we enthusiastically look to Gulf Craft because we are impressed by its quality of craftsmanship, as well as the shipyard’s capacity to redefine yachting and elevate the standards of onboard luxury,” said Albert Drettmann, CEO of Drettmann International.
“On our yachts, you can see, feel and experience something truly special. Every time.” Drettmann added.
Coinciding with the show will be the German Superyacht Conference, which covers topics on design, logistics, tourism, and sustainability.
The trade fair organiser Messe Düsseldorf says the biggest exhibitor berths are booked well in advance. “Düsseldorf has exactly the right audience for a superyacht show, and the exhibitors know this purchasing power and appreciate the open-mindedness of this audience for all things new.”
