The world’s largest composite production superyacht, Majesty 175, was unveiled on 22nd May 2021 by His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council at her world premiere at Dubai Harbour.
The Majesty 175 was manufactured at Gulf Craft’s production facility in the UAE, and has completed a series of sea trials before her premiere. VIPs and high-ranking officials toured the superyacht as she ventured into the Arabian Gulf.
The event was organised in partnership with the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) and coincided with the Arabian Travel Market 2021. The Majesty 175 will soon venture on voyages across the world, taking the UAE flag to around the globe.
The Majesty 175’s exterior and interior design are by the award-winning Cristiano Gatto Design Studio in Italy while the naval architecture is by Massimo Gregori of the Yankee Delta Studio.
She features 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.
With a gross tonnage of 780, she can 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.
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 stabilizers.
Safety features include a SOLAS rescue boat and an emergency generator. With the 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.
Gulf Craft Chairman, Mohammed Alshaali said:
“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. We create exceptional vessels that will delight yachting enthusiasts across the world. Gulf Craft invested nearly four years of effort to build this vessel, quicker than the normal timeframe, despite the challenges of the pandemic. 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.”
HE Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director-General of the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing, added:
“The UAE has fast rebounded as one of the world’s safest tourist destinations, further driving the growth of the yachting tourism sector. With nearly 830 superyacht projects in build or ordered globally this year, the Middle East continues to be one of the strongest markets for superyachts. The premiere of the Majesty 175 in Dubai highlights the remarkable potential for the yachting industry here. This will add to the confidence of the marine leisure sector and build the nation’s yachting and pleasure boating industry further.”
