Majesty 175: UAE's Gulf Craft unveils world's largest composite yacht

Measuring 54 metres, with seven suites and a five-metre swimming pool, the Majesty 175 has been described as a game-changer

UAE boat maker Gulf Craft has unveiled its largest mega-yacht to date.

Crafted from advanced materials such as carbon fibre and vinyl ester, Majesty 175 is also the largest composite yacht in production today, and is described by Gulf Craft as a game changer. These advancement allow her to cruise through low draft areas, such as the Caribbean, drawing only 2.25 metres of water.

Created for a prominent Emirati businessman, the yacht was four years in the making. It is 54 metres long, with a beam of 9.6 metres and a gross tonnage of 780.

Designed by Cristiano Gatto of Italy's Cristiano Gatto Design Team, its interiors offer accommodation for 14 guests across seven spacious rooms. The owner's suite is situated on the upper deck, with access to a five-metre-long pool. There are also six large crew cabins and private captain's accommodation.

The vessel is equipped with ethernet and a WiFi network, as well as an automation system that controls audio and video devices, lights, curtains and blinds.

“I’m proud of everyone who contributed to this magnificent jewel and to launch it today as the largest composite production mega-yacht in the world,” said Gulf Craft’s chairman Mohammed Hussein Alshaali.

"This project took four years of hard work and dedication from the entire team to manufacture. I believe that with building the Majesty 175, we have set a new trend in the market that many shipyards in the world will follow."

The ship is propelled by two fixed-pitch six-blade propellers and is powered by twin heavy duty MTU engines, giving her a full speed of 16.5 knots. At a cruising speed of 10 knots, she has a range of 4,000 nautical miles, making her a transoceanic vessel.
