Video: Gulf Craft chief executive Gregory Yeakle discusses company's "exciting" future

After taking over as Gulf Craft CEO in June, Gregory Yeakle sat down with Boat International on board the yard’s freshly delivered Majesty 125 AltaVita in Cannes to discuss the future of the company.

Yeakle promised exciting months ahead for both the Gulf Craft group and Majesty Yachts, with “releases of new boats” across the range, including the Nomad Yachts, Oryx, Silvercraft and Utility Series brands. The company is focused on developing and growing each of the brands in its own right, he said.

It has already been a busy year for Majesty Yachts. The third Majesty 100 Oneworld was delivered to her owner in March while AltaVita, the sixth model in the Majesty 125 series, was delivered only last month before attending both the Cannes and Monaco boat shows.

The 53.34 metre flagship Majesty 175 is also due to hit the water in the second half of 2019 while the yard’s latest model, the Majesty 140 was launched during the Dubai International Boat Show earlier this year.

Looking ahead, Yeakle promised new models, more launches and bigger boats.

“We do just about everything in-house and that gives us great agility in bringing new models to market,” he told Boat International.

“We intend to exploit that more and more as we go forward. The yachts are going to get bigger and I think the excitement will grow with the size of the boats.”

Yeakle said the Emirates based shipyard is focused on “continued levels of innovation” while prioritising safety and quality.

The yard’s yachts are best suited to private owners, charter and syndicates, he said, and are specifically appropriate for family and friend events due to their “exceptional space utilisation.”

Both AltaVita and Oneworld are now offered for charter. Oneworld will be based on the east coast of Australia and will be offered for charter through Ocean Alliance. Meanwhile AltaVita, the second Majesty 125 to be delivered this year, is offered for charter through Burgess.
