Gulf Craft buoyed by Asian award

Gulf Craft’s flagship superyacht the Majesty 155 was named as the Best Asian Built Yacht at the 2017 Asia Boating Awards held in Singapore recently.

The Majesty 155 – the largest semi-production superyacht built in the UAE – was recognised for her ability to combine unparalleled seagoing performance with timeless luxury. 

This marks Gulf Craft’s fifth consecutive win in South East Asia, demonstrating the UAE company’s legacy of being one of the most highly celebrated builders in the region.

“Our own journey as a builder is an example of the limitless possibilities that await the UAE’s home-made innovations,” said Bamps. “Thirty-five years ago, we started by building fishing boats and family cruisers. Today, we are a leading superyacht shipyard, export more than 70% of our products abroad, and are now preparing to venture into megayacht territory. This growth was made possible through careful strategizing, continuous investments in research and development, forging new partnerships, and working endlessly to enhance our existing operations. We believe that this success is not only possible for the leisure marine industry, but across all industries.”

The annual Asia Boating Awards recognize the best of the maritime industry in Asia and internationally, serving as a benchmark for the Asia-Pacific region, where Gulf Craft has been operational for more than 15 years.  

The Majesty 155 is Gulf Craft’s first displacement superyacht and merges powerful engineering with premium craftsmanship and lavish interiors to deliver a five-star cruising experience. Powered by twin 2,011 hp MTU engines, the yacht provides exceptional fuel efficiency and an ability to cover a range of over 4,200 nm at a speed of 10 knots.

Gulf Craft’s impressive track record with the Asia Boating Awards includes scooping the Best Asian Motor Yacht Builder award in 2016, the Best Asian Built Yacht award for the Majesty 122 in 2015, the Best Asian Yacht Builder award (in the 15 m to 24 m category) in 2014, and the Best Asian Built Yacht award in 2013 for the second-largest superyacht in its fleet, the Majesty 135.
