A strategic move to further expand its footprint on the continent and meet the significant growth in demand for its superyachts and adventure-type yachts. The appointment marks another important milestone for Gulf Craft as it celebrates 40 years of excellence in innovative and high-quality world-class boats and yachts.
A distinctive European position
Mohammed Hussein AlShaali, Gulf Craft’s Chairman, said: “France and Monaco hold a distinctive position in the global yachting community and are home to Europe’s marquee boating events – the Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show. Over the last 40 years we have built a reputation as a global manufacturer known for its innovation in yacht and boat building; selecting the right partner to represent us in one of our key territories is therefore crucial.
We are certain that Aqua Marine, with its stellar reputation and experience of more than 25 years in the maritime industry and understanding of the yachting scene in these two very important markets, is the ideal partner to represent our Majesty and Nomad brands to our European clientele.”
For lifestyle enthusiasts
“Gulf Craft is one of the industry’s leading manufacturers so it’s an honour to join the family as its exclusive dealer and support the company as it further expands its footprint around the world,” said Nicolas Bochno, Aqua Marine’s Manager.
“The Majesty and Nomad ranges are highly sought after amongst our clientele of marine lifestyle enthusiasts and so there is great potential for even more success. We are very much looking forward to embarking on this journey together and to propelling Gulf Craft’s position as a leading boat and yacht manufacturer to even greater heights.”
With established sales success, Aqua Marine has already brokered the sale of two Majesty 120 yachts and two Majesty 100 yachts – the latter of which was Gulf Craft’s best-selling vessel in 2021. It joins the company’s 28 distributors around the world, eight of which were added to its network last year across twelve new European countries with distribution channels set up in key territories such as Germany, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands.
