Majesty 111 at the Gulf Craft stand
Gulf Craft took centre stage on the opening day of the Dubai International Boat Show as the UAE builder staged the global debuts of the Majesty 111 and the Nomad 101 among a display of 15 boats, including the Majesty 120, 100, 72, 62 and Nomad 70.
Late additions to the five-day show at Dubai Harbour included a Riva 100’ Corsaro and the 68m Soaring by German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen, with organisers announcing about 175 yachts, boats and watercraft on display.
Gulf Craft announced the Majesty 111 at the Dubai show last year, as the shipyard celebrated its 40th anniversary. This year, it announced a new era under the ‘Legacy in Motion’ theme focused on four areas: technology and innovation, path to sustainability, global expansion and next generation.
Mohamed Alshaali, co-founder and Chairman of Gulf Craft, said: “At Gulf Craft, we never shy away from out-of-the-box thinking. This innovative spirit inspired our growth from a builder of small fishing boats to one of the world’s leading yacht builders.
“The Majesty 111 and the Nomad 101 are a nod to our legacy while reflecting a bold, forward-thinking stance. Our visitors at the Dubai International Boat Show can experience the future of yachting built with a clear focus on sustainability.”
