Gulf Craft unveils 4 new luxury superyachts to mark its 40th anniversary – Robb Report
Gulf Craft celebrates its 40th anniversary in style.
The UAE-based shipyard, which was established in 1982, has just unveiled four new superyachts at the Dubai International Boat Show (DIBS) to mark four successful decades in the industry.
The first is the Nomad 70. The successor to Gulf Craft’s Nomad 65 and Nomad 75, the new explorer yacht spans a total of 70 feet and will be made from lightweight fibre-reinforced plastic. It will be fitted with two 1,200 hp MAN engines which will propel the vessel to a maximum speed of 30 knots. The lavish interior, meanwhile, can accommodate 12 guests ready for global travels.
Next comes the new Silvercat 40cc catamaran. Following in the footsteps of the successful 34cc Silvercat, the multihull measures 40ft from end to end but has a displacement of just 7.9 tonnes. The Cat can be fitted with two 400 hp outboards or four 300 hp outboards, depending on how much grunt you’re looking for. It can also accommodate up to 12 sailors.
Gulf Craft also took the opportunity to present the latest model in the Majesty series. As its moniker suggests, the new Majesty 111 spans 111 feet and will set “a new design precedent” for all future Majesty models, according to the yard. The sleek superyacht will be designed inside and out by Phathom Studio. With an interior volume of 230 GT, she will accommodate 12 guests in six full-size cabins. The Majesty 111 is set to make its DIBS debut next year.
Speaking of the Majesty series, the second hull of the Majesty 120 line (top) also premiered at the show. baptized Rocket One, the three-deck superyacht is packed with innovative features. The 120-footer, which features naval architecture and exteriors by Gulf Craft’s in-house studio, was built using advanced composites such as GRP and carbon fiber. The ship also brings style in spades.
Yachts from Gulf Craft’s other brands, including Oryx Sport Cruisers and Silvercraft Fishing Boats, will also be on display at DIBS this week.
“The Dubai International Boat Show is an event that celebrates the growing yachting industry in the UAE, but also pays homage to the rich maritime heritage of our region,” Gulf Craft Chairman Mohammed Alshaali said in a statement. . “This year, we are highlighting the growth of our business and introducing a series of new models, all manufactured from our integrated factory in the UAE.”
Bring on the next 40 years, Gulf Craft.
