A luxury yacht firm has announced the construction of its largest ever craft at the Dubai International Boat Show, which opened on Tuesday. UAE-based Gulf Craft said that the Majesty 155 will be the most ambitious undertaking in its 31-year history and is expected to be completed in 2015. Gulf Craft did not provide specific details on the size or features of the new superyacht, but its immediate predecessor the Majesty 135 is more than 40m in length and comes equipped with a bar, saloon area and its own guest suites. If you are looking for a quality pre-owned Gulf Craft for sale be sure to take a look at “Tiger Cat,” a 56′ Gulf Craft launched in 2000.
“The Middle East continues to lead demand in the global superyacht market,” said Mohammed Hussain Al Shaali, chairman of Gulf Craft. “We are very optimistic about this region as more people are finding their way to the water. The destination building and infrastructure for superyachts in terms of larger berthing facilities, better equipped marinas and superior support facilities has progressed in recent years,” he added.
The yachts on display at the Dubai International Boat Show share a collective value of more than AED1bn (US$250m), and to add to the glamour the show will also feature a supercar promenade, as well as a section dedicated to diving in the UAE. Some 30 global and regional launches are expected to take place during the five days, including those from Al Shaalie Marine, IMG Boats and Van Dutch, among others.
