Virtuozity - - Boating -

GULF CRAFT RE­CENTLY LAUNCHED the sec­ond edi­tion of its award-win­ning Majesty 122 su­pery­acht. The 37.5-me­tre model is said to be just as per­fect for coastal cruis­ing with fam­ily and friends as it is for cor­po­rate cruises.

The com­pany’s largest su­pery­acht yet, the sale of the Majesty 155 took place in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Gulf Craft’s ex­clu­sive Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor, Aus­tralian Su­pery­achts, act­ing for the buyer. The su­pery­acht was de­liv­ered in Au­gust 2016, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany.

The three-floor yacht re­port­edly cost AED 90 mil­lion to pro­duce and two-anda-half years to build. It is pow­ered by twin 1,930hp en­gines, has a range of 4,200 nau­ti­cal miles, and a top speed of 16 knots.

Gulf Craft CEO, Er­win Bamps said, “With com­modi­ous in­te­ri­ors, state-of-theart tech­nol­ogy, and panoramic win­dows of­fer­ing breath­tak­ing views of glid­ing seascapes, the Majesty 122 is es­sen­tially a float­ing re­sort that prom­ises pas­sen­gers a mem­o­rable jour­ney. The su­pery­acht com­bines pow­er­ful en­gi­neer­ing with con­tem­po­rary de­sign, al­low­ing hol­i­day­mak­ers to take the home-away-from-home ex­pe­ri­ence to the world’s most ex­otic cruis­ing des­ti­na­tions.”

Aus­tralian Su­pery­achts’ Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Richard Mor­ris, added, “The Majesty 122 is ideally suited to the Aus­tralian mar­ket, of­fer­ing ver­sa­til­ity for coastal cruis­ing and South Pa­cific ad­ven­tures. Its spa­cious lay­out makes it per­fect for ex­tended pri­vate cruis­ing for fam­ily and friends, and it is also op­ti­mised for short cor­po­rate cruises with more than 100 guests. We are con­fi­dent that the Majesty 122 will re­ceive a warm welcome on the Aus­tralian char­ter mar­ket.”

The yacht is an aes­thetic dream, with so­phis­ti­cated ex­te­rior and in­te­rior styling cour­tesy of the Gulf Craft de­sign stu­dio. There is ac­com­mo­da­tion for up to 12 guests across five en suite state­rooms, fea­tures a jet black gel coat hull, and will be de­liv­ered with a metal­lic sil­ver su­per­struc­ture. The su­pery­acht will be based in
