Gulf craft announces new Majesty 160 superyacht at the MYS
Gulf Craft, a global brand recognised for its innovation in yacht and boat building, continues to make its mark in the field of composite-built superyachts as it unveiled production plans for the company's second largest superyacht – the brand-new Majesty 160 – at the Monaco Yacht Show.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, Gulf Craft which is the world’s leader in composite hull production and the creator of the world’s largest composite-built production superyacht, the Majesty 175, revealed the first details of its brand-new luxury superyacht at a packed press event hosted onboard the Majesty 120.
The Majesty 160 which goes into production this year at Gulf Craft’s fully integrated state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the UAE, is designed by the award-winning Cristiano Gatto Design Studio in Italy whilst the naval architecture is penned by the world-renowned Van Oosennen Dutch Naval Architects. Built to the specifications outlined by the Bureau Veritas Commercial Yacht Rules for yachts under 500 gross tonnage (GT), the Majesty 160 has a gross tonnage of 498 meeting all safety requirements of a vessel of 500 GT.
Taking its design cues from the iconic Majesty 175, the brand-new superyacht’s interior and exterior has been carefully designed with immaculate attention to detail to create a seamless balance between the outdoor and indoor spaces.
Redefining the segment through its opulent and contemporary interiors, the Majesty 160’s most notable feature is the phenomenal Master Suite. Ideally located at the end of the forward main deck corridor, the suite includes a private lounge, retractable balcony, a large ensuite with both bath and shower room, along with a full-beam Master cabin.
The smart layout has an innovative climate control system and accommodates up to 12 guests across its seven lavish staterooms, and can also host a crew of up to nine members with five large crew cabins and private captain’s accommodation.
The Majesty 160’s smart exterior design features an incredibly expansive sun deck with modular and moveable furniture suitable for all types of social occasions along with an infinity pool, perfectly set up for incredible panoramic and elevated views. Stand-out features also include a beach club - a customisable multi-purpose space with natural light that can be used as a lounge or bar area, a gym, or a health club making it an ideal place to relax after a long day of water activities. The swim platform provides guests unprecedented ease of access to the water while the fold-down balconies located on both the portside and starboard side of the platform allow for sunbathing throughout the day.
Combining the hull design and the superyachts technical prowess with twin MTU 16V 2000 M87, 2000 HP engines, the Majesty 160 is capable of achieving a top speed of 19.5 knots whilst at a cruising speed of 12 knots she has a range of 3,500 nautical miles and a further extended range of 4,300 nautical miles at 10.8 knots.
