During the event, organised in partnership with the Dubai Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), dignitaries and high-ranking officials toured the superyacht as it ventured into the Arabian Gulf, demonstrating its top-notch stability and maneuverability on the high sea. His Excellency Helal Saeed Al Marri, Director General of Dubai Tourism; Saeed Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council; and Mohammed Al Shaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft attended the event.
Manufactured at Gulf Craft’s integrated in-house production facility in the UAE, the Majesty 175 successfully completed a series of sea trials before its global premiere. The yacht will soon venture on voyages across the world, taking the UAE flag to global yacht events, marinas and exotic destinations, placing the country prominently on the world yachting map.
Built to the specifications outlined by the UK’s Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) for yachts over 500 gross tonnage (GT), the 55m long superyacht with a beam of 9.6m has a gross tonnage of 780. It has the ability to effortlessly cruise low-draft areas, drawing just 2.05m of water, as it was built using advanced composite materials such as carbon fibre and vinyl ester. This enables close beach access, a key consideration for many marine lifestyle enthusiasts.
Her exterior and interior were designed by the award-winning Cristiano Gatto Design Studio in Italy, while the naval architecture was developed by Massimo Gregori of the Yankee Delta Studio. Its stand-out features include a 5m infinity pool at the forward deck and a hybrid sky-lounge that can be converted to an open sun deck. The pool has a swim-jet system that creates a constant current of water. The smart layout accommodates seven lavish staterooms and can host a crew of up to 10 members with six large crew cabins and a private captain accommodation.
With a full speed of 16.5 knots and cruising speed of 10 knots, Majesty 175 has a range of 4,000 nautical miles, making her a transoceanic vessel.
