With its main factory in Umm Al Quwain, Gulf Craft has exhibited at every edition of the show and this year its line-up at Stand MD-35 ranges from 32-120ft and includes the Majesty 120, Majesty 100, Majesty 72 and Majesty 62, plus the Nomad 70.

Mohamed Alshaali, co-founder and Chairman of Gulf Craft, said: “As the leading yacht manufacturer in the region, we are proud to be part of the Dubai International Boat Show. We are grateful to the team yet again bringing to life this event celebrating the UAE’s vibrant yachting sector while paying tribute to our country’s rich maritime heritage.
“As in previous years, we will leverage the show to showcase our industry-leading yachts. This year we debut the Majesty 111, our superyacht anchored in our company’s proud legacy while guided by our vision of the future that prioritises nature-inspired aesthetics built around sustainability.”

The Majesty 111 design concept was revealed at last year’s Dubai show and follows on from the success of the Majesty 100, Majesty 120, Majesty 140 and flagship Majesty 175.
The exterior and interior styling of the Majesty 111 is a joint effort between Gulf Craft and Phathom Studio, with the UAE builder working with the Dutch studio for the first time to create a new style.

The shipyard estimates that the Majesty 111 uses nearly 40 per cent glazing than a sub-100ft yacht, creating a light, airy atmosphere in the interiors, which includes six guest cabins including a master suite forward on the main deck.
The main deck includes an open saloon and forward dining area, with an internal staircase to the flybridge, which includes an open aft deck, skylounge and plunge pool forward. The superyacht has storage for a 4m-plus tender, a jetski on the swim platform and other water toys.

Innovative energy-saving systems include an optional heat-recovery system, which extracts heat from chillers and generators to deliver full climate control and fresh hot water without consuming electricity.
