Gulf Craft has announced that its recently launched superyacht, Majesty 175 has won the Best Revelation Yacht award at the World Yacht Trophies held in Cannes Yachting Festival 2021.  

Majesty 175 is the world’s largest composite production yacht manufactured at Gulf Craft’s integrated in-house production facility in the UAE. The Yacht is scheduled to be handed over to its owner this month.  

Speaking from Cannes Yachting Festival, Gulf Craft’s CEO, Talal Nasralla, said: “This year has been exceptionally robust for us with a strong order book and the delivery of our Majesty 175 and other superyachts. These have further established our strengths in manufacturing boats and yachts from composites – a method that is now gaining popularity in Europe, traditionally a steel boat market. We are now leading the global boating conversation around composite-built superyachts with strong demand from Europe and other global markets. To meet this, we have expanded our footprint in Europe. 

“Our differentiating value proposition is our fully integrated manufacturing facility and our in-house design capabilities. Every aspect of the build of our vessels, from design concept, engineering, build and beyond happens under one roof. These enable us to deliver highly personalised boats that meet the aspirations of global yachting enthusiasts with a diverse bouquet of five brands for customers to choose from – the Majesty series, affordable Silvercraft family boats, Oryx sports cruisers, Nomad explorer yachts and Touring Passenger Vessels.” 

With a significant increase of 42 per cent in new orders in the first half of 2021, Gulf Craft is now ramping up its production capacity and retailer network across the globe. “We can offer our customers in Europe a high-quality vessel to suit their needs. For instance, our Nomad SUV series is well suited to the Nordic region’s cooler climate because it has been designed with an enclosed cabin which is unique to explorer boats currently available in the market,” added Nasralla. 

Gulf Craft has built more than 10,000 boats already, serving clients around the world. The 2019 AEU Safety Award Winner, Gulf Craft was awarded ‘Best in the Show’ at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show for its 43.3m Majesty 140 superyacht.
