GULF CRAFT PLANS MAJOR PRESENCE AT KEY ASIA BOAT SHOWS

 

Gulf Craft, the Middle East and Asia's most prominent builder of FRP luxury yachts and leisure craft, is planning a major presence at the first edition of the Singapore Yacht Show this year, followed by the China International Boat Show and Boat Asia in Singapore in May.

Forming the centerpiece of the displays at the Singapore Shows will be the Majesty 88, a 26.83m yacht that Gulf Craft sees as perfect for cruising the shallow waters of the region in luxury. Featuring a magnificent owner’s stateroom that runs the full 6.4m (21ft) beam, a choice of Caterpillar diesels giving speeds of up to 28 knots, and generous accommodation for 8 guests and 4 crew, the 88 is an awesome introduction to the rest of the Majesty Super Yacht range. Its best selling family and charter yacht model worldwide, the Majesty 56, will also be on show.

"We have identified this area, for a major sales drive of our brand, particularly with our Majesty range of yachts," explained Erwin Bamps, COO of Gulf Craft. "We have been building high quality FRP vessels since 1982, and our semi-custom build programme allows us to tailor each yacht exactly to a customer’s requirement. We also ensure each yacht has all the very latest hi-tech equipment for entertaining, domestic comfort and navigation. The maneuverability and shallow draft of our superyachts, combined with long-range capability, makes them ideal for these waters, and the high degree of luxury, developed for the discerning Arabian market, will also be recognized by Asian businessmen and yacht owners who appreciate these qualities. We’ve long had a presence in the Asian market, but now we’re really emphasizing what Gulf Craft has to offer here. The high build quality of our range, the luxurious fit out and the competitive pricing suggests that the Majesty 88 is the ideal showcase for our increased presence in these territories. We are sure we have an exciting future here."

Gulf Craft have recently launched the Gulf 95 Exp, a 95ft luxury motor yacht that takes a different approach to yachting with the concept of living on the water at the heart of its design. The Gulf 95 Exp is an entirely new concept, focused on the creation of an 'Art de Vivre', the art of luxury living at its finest. With her wide beam hull to maximize internal volume and deck space, the Gulf 95 Exp offers the best in comfortable accommodation, luxury loft-style living in an apartment with simply the best sea views anywhere, plus the engine and fuel range for extended voyaging and great entertaining space for friends or business guests when in harbour.
