UAE-based shipyard Gulf Craft has pulled the wraps off a new model during the Monaco Yacht Show. Named the Majesty 160, the composite model will measure roughly 49 metres and has been designed by Cristiano Gatto.
The Majesty 160 will be the second largest project for the shipyard following the Majesty 180, the largest composite production boat ever built.
“The Majesty 160 is an evolution of our Majesty 155, and follows the new design precedent of our Majesty line-up which was introduced earlier this year with the Majesty 111 at Dubai International Boat Show,” said Gulf Craft chairman Mohammed Hussein AlShaali.
The new yacht model, which has naval engineering by van Oossanen, will have a gross tonnage of 498 and will be built to Bureau Veritas Commercial Yacht Rules. Borrowing design cues from the Majesty 175 flagship, the 160 will have a smart layout that maximises space and light, alongside contemporary styling.
One of the onboard highlights is the master suite, which is positioned on the main deck forward and benefits from a private lounge, retractable balcony and large en suite complete with a bath and shower room.
Including the owner’s suite, there is accommodation for up to 12 guests in seven cabins with complement for nine crew in five large cabins, including private captain’s accommodation.
Elsewhere, the yacht is home to a large sun deck with an infinity pool and modular furniture that allows the space to be tailored to all occasions. At the stern, a generous beach club with fold-out balconies and a gym creates a lovely waterfront relaxation and recreation set-up.
This set-up works particularly well with the yacht's low draft of 2.3 metres, which will enable her to access shallow water areas with ease.
The yacht will be fitted with twin MTU 16V 2000 M87, 2000 HP engines, propelling her to an estimated top speed of 19.5 knots,
The first hull will be built on speculation, and production will start later this year.
