Majesty 175 built by Gulf Craft is the world’s largest composite production superyacht.

One of the world’s leading shipbuilders, Gulf Craft has launched Majesty 175, the world’s largest composite production superyacht at Dubai Harbor.

The Majesty 175 is the company’s flagship superyacht with 54 meters in length with a beam of 9.6 meters and was produced in the company’s boatyard in Umm Al Quwain. The yacht was introduced by Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed, chairman of Dubai Sports Council, during its world premiere at Dubai Harbor.

The sleek yacht was constructed with composite materials such as carbon fiber and vinyl ester and features a wood-paneled interior. The shallow draft also makes it possible to get close to the sand. It has a five-meter infinity pool, a convertible lounge that can be used as a sun deck, a seven stateroom, and a crew consist of ten members.

The yacht, which was unveiled late last year, took four years to build and has completed a series of sea trials.

The Majesty 175 cements the reputation of Gulf Craft as a leader in the global yachting industry and underlines the nation as a leading yachting destination.

“It is also noteworthy that the superyacht is being introduced to the world at a time when the UAE continues to prudently and successfully navigate through an unprecedented pandemic to remain at the forefront of the world’s widely recommended safe travel destinations,” he further added.
