Un­veiled at the 2017 Dubai In­ter­na­tional Boat Show, the award­win­ning five-cabin Majesty 100 is a fine ex­po­nent of Gulf Craft’s fas­tid­i­ous ap­proach. One of the im­per­a­tives for the com­pany’s in-house design stu­dio was to bring the out­door experience and the in­ter­nal spa­ces into more in­ti­mate union.

To that end, the Majesty Yachts 100 is the first in the col­lec­tion to em­ploy a semi-con­vert­ible sky lounge. This en­ables guests to en­joy the panoramic views of a tra­di­tional fly­bridge from the shel­ter of a cli­mate-con­trolled co­coon – and yet with the win­dow sec­tions low­ered and the fold­ing doors open, it is trans­formed into an out­door loung­ing area.

That same in­te­gra­tion of in­side and out­side spa­ces is ap­plied else­where by means of a raised wheel­house with wraparound glaz­ing for un­ob­structed 270-de­gree views from the helm; and on the main deck, where floor-to-ceil­ing glass pan­els ad­mit an unchecked flow of nat­u­ral light. The use of ex­tend­able bal­conies on both sides of the saloon’s aft seat­ing area fur­ther de­vel­ops the theme, giv­ing guests easy al-fresco en­ter­tain­ment with­out re­mov­ing them from the hub of the party.

The propul­sion is equally well-con­sid­ered. In the case of the ‘stan­dard’ Majesty Yachts 100, that in­volves twin 1,900hp MAN engines hooked up to V-drives, de­liv­er­ing a 23-knot top end and a range of around 1,500 nau­ti­cal miles. The fact that the V-drives en­able th­ese engines to be po­si­tioned a good dis­tance aft also gen­er­ates a use­ful in­crease in in­board space, as well as
