First announced at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, the Majesty 175 was an ambitious project from the start, but thanks to the vision of Gulf Craft’s Chairman, Mohammed Alshaali, and the dedication of the workers, the flagship of the shipyard took only four years to build.
Manufactured at Gulf Craft’s integrated in-house production facility in Umm Al Quwain, the Majesty 175 successfully completed a series of sea trials before her global premiere. Dignitaries and high-ranking officials toured the superyacht as she ventured into the Arabian Gulf, demonstrating top-notch stability and maneuverability.
The event was organised in partnership with the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) underlining Dubai and the UAE’s appeal as a yachting destination. The Majesty 175 will soon venture on voyages across the world, taking the UAE flag to global yacht events, marinas, and exotic destinations, putting the country prominently on the world yachting map.
The Majesty 175 cements the reputation of Gulf Craft as a leader in the global yachting industry and underlines the nation as a leading yachting destination. With the regional premiere of the Majesty 175 at Dubai Harbour, we are reiterating the appeal of the country as a full-fledged yachting destination.
The Making of the Majesty 175
The Majesty 175’s exterior and interior design are by the award-winning Cristiano Gatto Design Studio, while the naval architecture is by Massimo Gregori of the Yankee Delta Studio.
She can effortlessly cruise low-draft areas, drawing just 2.05 metres of water, as she is built using advanced composite materials such as carbon fibre and vinyl ester. This enables close beach access, a key consideration for many marine lifestyle enthusiasts.
Built to the specifications outlined by the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) for yachts over 500 gross tonnage (GT), the Majesty 175 has a gross tonnage of 780.
The Majesty’s stand-out features include a 5-metre infinity pool at the forward deck and a hybrid sky-lounge that can be converted to an open sun deck. The pool has a swim-jet system that creates a constant current of water.
The smart layout accommodates seven lavish staterooms and can host a crew of up to 10 members with six large crew cabins and a private captain accommodation. Electricity supply comes from 175 kW Kohler generators and two pairs of TRAC fin stabilisers.
With a full speed of 16.5 knots and cruising speed of 10 knots, the Majesty 175 has a range of 4,000 nautical miles, making her a transoceanic vessel.
Majesty is one of the five brands of boats and yachts manufactured by Gulf Craft. The other brands are Silvercraft, featuring affordable smaller family and fishing boats; Oryx sports cruisers; Nomad explorer yachts and Touring Passenger Vessels.
Founded in 1982, Gulf Craft has three facilities in the UAE and the Maldives and has a manufacturing capacity of 200 boats per year. The company has built more than 10,000 boats already, serving clients around the world.
