Gulf Craft, Qatar’s market leader for luxury yachts and leisure boats, yesterday launched an exclusive preview at The Pearl-Qatar. Two new superyachts from the shipyard’s Majesty Yachts brand and an oceangoing yacht model from its long-range Nomad Yachts series are among the attractions of the three-day event.
The GCC-based shipyard leads Qatar’s market share for leisure craft, now accounting for 50% of domestic purchases. It translates to a 10% growth from last year due to the company’s capacity to manufacture reliable and seagoing craft.
More than 10 yachts and boats from the builder’s expanding fleet of Majesty Yachts, Nomad Yachts, Oryx sport cruisers, and Silvercraft fishing and family were presented at a private event yesterday.
“Today, Qatari buyers are interested in a diverse range of on-water experiences, marked by a growing desire for onboard comfort and extended sea travel,” Gulf Craft chairman Mohamed Hussein al-Shaali said.
“We also understand that Qatari owners want to spend more time cruising and less time maintaining their boats, and that is why our dedicated after-sales support team is always within reach,” he added.
The fifth edition of Gulf Craft’s exclusive preview in Qatar follows on the heels of the company’s global launch of the three new yachts at the Dubai International Boat Show. It generated more than AED 80mn in sales across its comprehensive portfolio of world-class yachts and boats.
The new Majesty 110 and the Majesty 90 superyachts both combine powerful engineering and advanced technology with immaculate design.
A unique venture into the world of tri-deck (three decks), the Majesty 110 has abundant outdoor and indoor entertainment features and numerous amenities, including a spacious garage that is large enough to store a dinghy and a Jet Ski.
Meanwhile, the ample space onboard the Majesty 90 enables passengers to move effortlessly inside and outside the superyacht, giving owners the chance to customise the fly-bridge to either fit a dinghy, Jet Ski, or an even larger seating area, and offering breathtaking 360-degree views from the superyacht’s interior.
The Nomad 55 is the latest in Gulf Craft’s long-range series of yachts, offering Qataris with an insatiable appetite for sea travel an opportunity to take the five-star loft experience into the midst of the world’s oceans.
Similar to its sister ship the Nomad 65, the Nomad 55 emanates world-class engineering from the inside-out with a hybrid hull designed by celebrated British yacht designer Andrew Wolstenholme.
Reaching speeds of up to 25 knots using twin 700 hp engines, the Nomad 55 can travel long distances without having to make frequent fuel stops, allowing its passengers to enjoy an uninterrupted cruising experience.
