Gulf Craft Completes Electric Flagship Majesty 120
The Majesty 120, the elegant tri-deck superyacht launched earlier this year by UAE-based shipyard Gulf Craft, has now been completed. Heralding a ‘new era’ for the prolific shipbuilders, Gulf Craft has invited a closer look at the benchmarks of efficiency, comfort and performance met by the new model.
The latest 37-metre addition to the Majesty Yachts family was conceived early last year and announced at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show. Featuring a contemporary interior design by Cristiano Gatto, who collaborated with the yard on the Majesty 175 and Majesty 140, the new model embraces a minimalistic design to meet the tastes of Gulf Craft’s international clientele.
Her exterior design and naval architecture was carried out in-house, and is defined by an eye-catchingly aggressive profile and clear, striking lines. Abundant use of glass and an inventive asymmetric layout are testament to Gulf Craft’s unerring receptivity to market trends.
Drawing on almost four decades of shipbuilding experience and the success of previous models, the Majesty 120 represents a culmination of expertise and innovation. All of the hydraulic systems onboard have been replaced by electric powered ones, from the fin stabilisers to the balconies, to make for the highest achievable levels of comfort and efficiency. Other examples of shrewd engineering are evidenced in the 120’s hybrid beach club, which can be transformed into a tender storage unit, and extensive outdoor socialising spaces (30% larger than the yacht’s predecessor).
Italian designer Cristiano Gatto comments, “The Majesty 120 is the result of yet another fruitful collaboration with Majesty Yachts. For me, the Majesty 120 perfectly captures the direction in which this innovative brand is heading with her dynamic profile, balanced outdoor spaces and sophisticated interiors that are all designed with true yachtsmen and women in mind.”
More than just a pleasing aesthetic, the Majesty 120’s innovative use of electric power will serve as a benchmark for the entire superyacht industry. The enhanced levels of comfort and reduced noise are sure to raise standards for guests everywhere, while technological advancements in the area of maintenance and monitoring mean onboard operations are easier than ever before.
