The event will also highlights Gulf Craft’s contributions to the yachting and marine services sector in the Maldives. The shipyard has already begun work on a new facility located on its own island in the Maldives.

This new facility will be dedicated to building Gulf Craft boats and yachts specifically for the local tourism industry and with an aim to export similar models to neighbouring countries in SE Asia. This 10-million-dollar investment underlines Gulf Craft’s commitment to supporting the Maldivian and SE Asian market, in addition to its existing facilities that have been building and servicing yachts and boats since 2002.

We are delighted to present our acclaimed Majesty Yachts at the Monaco Yacht Show. The European premiere of the Majesty 111 underscores our unwavering commitment to pushing the frontiers of yacht design. Equally, we take great pride in our transformative role in the Maldives, where we have been instrumental in enhancing both the transportation and tourism sectors within the region.Mohammed Hussein Alshaali, Gulf Craft Chairman

About the Majesty 111

The Majesty 111’s exterior and interior styling is a joint effort between Gulf Craft and the Netherlands-based Phathom Studio. Phathom’s bold exterior lines, interior aesthetics, and yacht design flair complemented Gulf Craft’s seasoned yacht-building expertise to develop a new generation of fresh and energetic Majesty yachts.

The Majesty 111 features a 6-cabin layout – 5 plush lower deck guest cabins and a cathedral-like 15sqm forward VIP cabin.

Optimised liveability and the seamless indoor-outdoor connection are achieved through large and tall expanses of glazing, for a light and airy atmosphere in the interiors and unrestricted exterior views throughout various segregated social zones on the various decks.

A large open deck for configurable furniture arrangements, an asymmetric sky lounge with panoramic views, a foredeck plunge pool, ample storage spaces both inside and outside for marine toys, a 4m+ tender, jet ski at the swim platform are integrated through market research, and trend forecasting for a broader global market.

The Majesty 111 is built with energy-saving systems onboard that optimise energy use. CFD simulation tools and analysis helped the shipyard to optimise the hull. It enables the Majesty 111 to attain the highest possible speed using available power while achieving the least possible consumption at cruising speed.

An optional heat recovery system extracts heat from chillers and generators to deliver full climate control and fresh hot water without consuming electricity.

The Majesty 120’s interior offers a contemporary layout enriched with selected solid wood, leather, and marble finishes and panelling. Every fixture and fitting are handcrafted, ensuring a high level of attention to detail.
