GULF CRAFT APPOINTS NEW DISTRIBUTOR FOR MAJESTY YACHTS IN SOUTH-EAST ASIA

 

Gulf Craft, the leading builder of fiberglass luxury motor yachts in the Middle East and Asia, has appointed Eminence Yachting Ltd. to distribute the Majesty range of yachts and superyachts in Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines.

Formed by Simon Turner, of Iconovista in Singapore, and Bart Kimman, of Asia Yacht Services, Hong Kong, the new company, Eminence Yachting, will focus upon sales of yachts and superyachts in the contracted territories. The Majesty Yachts range will be their key brand, while they will also deal with other international manufacturers. The company has been awarded an exclusive dealership by Gulf Craft for Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines, which will be supported by their Asia-wide infrastructure for both sales and servicing.

Speaking about the new venture, director Simon Turner said; “The new company is an exciting project in itself, and to be able to represent the superb Majesty Yachts range from Gulf Craft, is a real honour. During my visits to the Gulf Craft production facilities in the United Arab Emirates, I have been hugely impressed by the build quality and attention to detail in the construction of these outstanding motor yachts as well as the company’s desire to expand further into the exciting Asian market. We really look forward to introducing them to potential owners in South-East Asia where the market for superyachts of more than 100ft is really taking off now. We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious company as Gulf Craft and to be able to offer clients in Asia such a premium product range with a terrific price advantage.”

Erwin Bamps, Chief Operating Officer for Gulf Craft, when announcing the appointment of Eminence Yachting said: “We are very pleased to conclude our extensive and ongoing promotional Majesty Yachts road show to Singapore, Phuket and Penang, here, at Boat Asia, with the announcement of this new partnership.  Gulf Craft has been active in South-East Asia for 20 years already, and now is the right moment for us to take our presence in this region to the next level.  We believe that Eminence Yachting, dedicated to the sales of luxury yachts and superyachts in Asia, will be ideal for the promotion of our Majesty Yachts range there.”

Gulf Craft is presently exhibiting at Boat Asia in Singapore from 12 – 15 May under the Majesty Yachts name, at Berths GH01 and GH02.  Eminence Yachting, as well as Go Boating Thailand Ltd and Pen-Marine Sdn Bhd, Gulf Craft’s representatives in Thailand and Malaysia respectively, are available at the Majesty Yachts Boat Asia stand to welcome and attend existing and potential new clients.
