Umm Al Quwain, UAE, 06 June 2015: Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Rashid Al Mu’allah, member of the Supreme Council of the UAE and Ruler of Umm Al Quwain, Gulf Craft today unveiled the Majesty 155, the UAE shipbuilder’s largest-ever, fly-bridge motor superyacht.
The unveiling at the Majesty Yachts shipyard in Umm Al Quwain, UAE proved to be a welcome addition to the ever-expanding Gulf Craft portfolio, and served as further testament to the company’s decades-old, trust-based consultative approach to growing its business.
Gulf Craft’s largest and latest addition to its Majesty Yachts brand also clearly demonstrates the company’s continuous dedication to the luxury yacht market.
“Gulf Craft’s track record has been consistently recognized on a global level. The conception and creation of the Majesty 155 has further pushed our capabilities as a company, creating even higher expectations from our customers around the world,” said Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft.

“We are very grateful toward all those who have contributed to our success, and who have supported us throughout our journey. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our valued customers without whom, Gulf Craft would not have reached this high international ranking,” concluded Al Shaali.
Erwin Bamps, CEO of Gulf Craft, believes the unveiling of the Majesty 155 is significant for a number of reasons.
“This important milestone demonstrates our commitment to exceeding the ever-evolving needs and wants of global yachting enthusiasts,” said Bamps. “We understand that our customers have a genuine appreciation for opulence, and would like to experience the same lavish lifestyle and entertainment on water that they do on land. The Majesty 155 was crafted to provide a truly deluxe experience that has never before been available from Gulf Craft, as we continue our drive to gain market share”
The Guest Experience in Fine Detail
The pioneering Majesty 155 is Gulf Craft’s first displacement superyacht. At 155 feet (47 meters),the Majesty 155 offers owners the experience of luxury and comfort at its finest, from an ornately designed fountain on the sundeck, surrounded by a spacious seating area where passengers can enjoy breathtaking views of the water, to a beautiful waterfall that cascades from the rear sundeck into the Jacuzzi situated on the upper deck.
The elaborate and sophisticated detailing of the Majesty 155 provides owners with an unsurpassed luxury experience in both style and functionality. The owner’s first-class stateroom is furnished using only premium fabrics and leathers, with countertops constructed from Cappuccino Onyx and CremaMarfil marble, further emphasizing the room’s supreme elegance.
The dedicated cigar lounge within the owner’s stateroom features a ceiling crafted from genuine cigar leaves, adding a delicate yet artistic touch to the room’s alluring design. The owner’s stateroom balcony is another distinct feature of this superyacht, allowing owners to enjoy the panoramic seascapes from the privacy of their own room.
Guests will be charmed by the eloquent design of the lower deck guest staterooms which are finished using the finest Red and Green Onyx and Botticino Royal Marble. Those looking to spend time under the sun’s golden rays will find comfort in the superyacht’s dedicated beach club situated at the rear entrance, fully equipped with a pantry, a retractable television, and a spacious lounging area. The lower deck also features a spacious garage behind the beach club which can house a tender and two jet skis, all easily moved in and out by crane.
An elevator that carries guests between the lower, main and upper decks offers added convenience, and a second balcony in the main saloon, along with a custom-made television – built to withstand all types of weather conditions – outside the upper deck seating area, further bolster the capacity to entertain. Guests will also find the upper deck’s indoor lounge to be quite remarkable, with its huge windows affording all inside unparalleled panoramic views.
Onlookers of the Majesty 155 will be dazzled by the underwater lights that surround the entire base of the superyacht, illuminating its commanding presence as it sets sail into the open seas, while maintaining a majestic night time stature within its berth.
Majesty 155 Performance
Opulent in style and elegant in design, the Majesty 155 also boasts exceptional performance. The power of twin 2,011 hp MTU 12V 4,000 M63 engines provide excellent fuel efficiency and an ability to cover a range of over 4,200nm with an approximate maximum speed of 16 knots.
Massimo Gregori Grgič, of Yankee Delta Studio in Italy, is responsible for the naval architecture of the Majesty 155.
The Majesty 155’s hull design allows for low fuel consumption, long-range capability, and incredible comfort. The 9.60 m beam gives large space inside and allows for an even greater stability. The hull design was tank-tested in Italy, and the actual ship proves to perform above all expectations. She is easy to handle, stable, and quiet, leaving minimum wakes behind.
