The UAE builder staged the US premiere of the Majesty 120 at the 63rd Fort Lauderdale show, following the superyacht’s European appearances in Cannes and Monaco.

Gulf Craft hosted the US premiere of the Majesty 120 at this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 26-30, where Rocket One exhibited at the Face Dock in Bahia Mar Marina.
The 120, whose features include an energy-saving heat-recovery smart system, had its world premiere at the Dubai International Boat Show in March and European debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September, also appearing at the Monaco Yacht Show later that month.

There have been multiple sales of the Majesty 120 in the US, which has remained a key market for Gulf Craft since it exhibited at the Fort Lauderdale show for the first time in 2019, when it displayed the Majesty 140.
Mohammed Alshaali, co-founder and Chairman of Gulf Craft, said: “We’re bringing luxurious bespoke standards and skilled craftsmanship from the UAE to the US, an important market for us. In 2021 we saw a significant uplift in sales, which is a tribute to the unique advantages of our yachts and our position as the world’s leader in composite hull production.

“Compared to traditional steel vessels, our composite hulls are lightweight, offer competitive fuel economy and allow navigation of shallow waters such as around Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Our yachts are also built to withstand exceptional levels of heat and humidity, which are common to both the UAE and the US.”
Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the UAE builder has announced the development of two new models: the Majesty 111, which will debut in 2023, and Majesty 160, the yard’s second-biggest superyacht to date. However, its flagship remains the Majesty 175, which it delivered last year.

“We are proud of our ambition to push the boundaries of possibility and the jewel in our crown is the Majesty 175,” Alshaali said. “As the world’s largest composite-built production superyacht, it has reinforced our position as an innovator in the use of composites.”
