Majesty Yachts 155 is UAE builder's largest launch yet
by Risa Merl
UAE superyacht builder Gulf Craft has launched its largest yacht yet, the 47 metre Majesty Yachts 155.
The 47 metre Majesty Yachts 155 will be the new flagship of UAE superyacht builder Gulf Craft’s Majesty Yachts brand. Sitting at the top of the builder’s Superyacht Collection line, she follows the recent launches of the Majesty Yachts 122, a Majesty 135 and a new Majesty 105.
The new motor yacht is semi-custom, but beyond being able to alter the interior, Gulf Craft's CEO Erwin Bamps explained, the superstructure styling also can be bespoke for each 155, which are built on the same hull. By offering exterior as well as interior customisations, this move takes the semi-custom builder into platform-build territory, handily expanding options for its clients.
“The Majesty 155 shows how far we can go with our customization”, Erwin Bamps says.
Hull No 1 was moulded before she was sold, but there was still plenty of time for an owner of the first 155 to alter the exterior. This resulted in the exterior design evolving over the course of the build, and Gulf Craft shared the striking new exterior styling of the 155 with Boat International first.
The changes to the exterior design, as seen in the image above, show how the windows were completely restyled, which not only lets more light inside, but gives the exterior a sleeker look.
The round portholes on the forward lower deck guest rooms were also changed into large, oblong windows, allowing for great views from the guest suites. On the main deck, the glazing has been entirely redesigned; previously there were five oblong and a few round ports which have been replaced by one continuous piece of glass. This massive cat-eye shaped window sweeps along the forward main deck across the owner’s stateroom. It not only gives a fresher look to the exterior design, but will allow for improved vistas from the master stateroom.
The Majesty Yachts 155’s master is serenely decorated in natural colours and with a separate sitting area for relaxation.
Powered by twin 2,011hp MTU 12V 4,000 M63 engines, the new Majesty 155 is estimated to reach a top speed of 16 knots and achieve a range of 4,000 nautical miles.
Gulf Craft announced last November that it would be building its second Majesty 155 superyacht.
