Gulf Craft launches the World’s largest composite yacht Majesty 175 in production today at the length 54 meters and a beam of 9.6 meters.
The announcement of the project was at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2016.
The yacht’s interior and exterior lines were penned by Cristiano Gatto of Cristiano Gatto Design Studio based in Italy, while the naval architecture was provided by Massimo Gregori of the Yankee Delta Studio, who was also responsible for the hull of the shipyard’s Majesty 155.
With a gross tonnage of 780, the Majesty 175 offers accommodations for 14 guests in 7 spacious staterooms. The owner’s suite is situated forward of the upper deck allowing dual side access to a 5-meter-long pool with a unique swim-stream feature. There are 6 large crew cabins as well as a private captain accommodation.
Being built to MCA regulations (for yachts above 500GT) and using advanced composite materials such as carbon fiber and vinylester, this yacht sets new standards for innovation and technology in the yachting industry. This material advancement allows her to cruise through low draft areas, such as the Caribbean Ocean, drawing only 2.25 meters of water.
She is propelled by two fixed pitch six-blade propellers and is powered by twin heavy duty MTU engines 12V 4000 M63 developing 1500kW each. Her onboard electrical supply comes from a pair of 175 kW Kohler generators and is equipped with two pairs of TRAC fin stabilizers. On completion, the yacht will have a full speed of 16.5 knots. At a cruising speed of 10 knots, she has a range of 4,000 nm, making her a transoceanic vessel. All safety equipment required for a yacht over 500GT has been installed. This includes a SOLAS rescue boat and an emergency generator.
