Construction update on Gulf Craft flagship Majesty 175
New photos released by the yard show construction continuing on schedule, with completion scheduled for the end of this year.
The yacht is still being built on-spec. Burgess is handling the sale which the yard hopes to complete by the end of the year.
The yard also revealed that modifications have taken place to the yacht's original design. The Majesty 175 was originally designed with an open sundeck, however this has now been closed and replaced with an enclosed deck.
A spokesman for the yard said: "Thanks to the fact that the boat is being built in FRP (fibre-reinforced plastic), we were able to change the design without affecting its technical structure."
He also said the yacht had been tank tested during its engineering stage and "no issues" had been reported.
It comes after the yacht, which features naval architecture by Massimo Gregori, began construction in 2017. It was first revealed by former chief executive Erwin Bamps at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show.
He previously said: “The Majesty 175 is the first megayacht for us – it’s part of an effort we are doing, driven by the demand of an existing clientele that says: ‘We trust you guys.’ They believe more in us than we sometimes believe in ourselves."
In a first for Gulf Craft, the interior styling will come courtesy of Italian designer Cristiano Gatto, with an emphasis on substantial lounging and entertaining areas.
“Yacht design is at the forefront of what I do, but, by virtue of my experience as a sculptor, I approach each and every project as a sculpture, with the overall design in mind but refining it to the smallest detail,” Gatto previously said.
It is understood that the Majesty 175 will have a total interior volume of around 780GT, and the layout will include a superyacht beach club.
