Gulf Craft has delivered its tri-deck Majesty 120 to its owner, a prominent Kazakhstani businessman. The 121ft 8in (37.0m) superyacht with a beam of 26ft 6in (8.1m) has twin 2,600hp engines and will set sail for Turkey from the UAE before she continues to explore the Mediterranean.
The UAE builder handled the naval architecture and exterior design, while the interior is by Cristiano Gatto Design Team, whose projects with the shipyard include the Majesty 175 and 140 models. The yacht was built in GRP and carbon-fibre in the builder’s main facility in Umm Al Quwain.
One of the Majesty 120’s most pioneering features is that aside from the engines and generators, her onboard systems are electrically powered, from fin stabilisers to thrusters and steering, so eliminating the need for hydraulic systems.
Mohammed Hussein Alshaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft, said: “We have been focused on creating a true masterpiece in her class, both in her design and performance. Our commitment to innovation, led by a team of in-house professionals, is reflected in Majesty 120, which not only embraces electrical systems but has incorporated unique and flexible design features.
“Moving to electrically powered systems is aligned with our vision to be the leader in the industry and build revolutionary yachts that transform the future. We are confident that Majesty 120 will set trends as a superyacht suited for marine lifestyle enthusiasts across the world.”
Gulf Craft says the sundeck is 30 percent larger than other yachts in her class, while other features include five guest staterooms designed asymmetrically, a child-friendly lounge, a jacuzzi and a hybrid beach club that converts into a storage unit for tenders.
Gulf Craft has over 800 employees across its three facilities in the UAE and the Maldives, and a manufacturing capacity of 200 boats per year, including models in the Majesty, Nomad, Oryx and Silvercraft brands. The company has built more than 10,000 boats since it was founded in 1982.
