Announced during the last Monaco Yacht Show 2019 onboard the Majesty 140 by Gulf Craft Executive Chairman, Mohammed Hussein Alshaali, the Emirates-yacht builder stated that the first tri-deck Majesty 120 is officially under construction. Completion is scheduled for March 2020.
Presented at the last Monaco Yacht Show, the newcomer of the Majesty range will aim to European and American markets. Mohammed Hussein Alshaali, Gulf Craft Executive Chairman, revealed the news at the Gulf Craft press conference.
“With the Majesty 120 – said Mr Alshaali – everything except for the engines and generators are electrically powered, from the fin stabilisers to the thrusters and steering, from the balconies to the passerelle, all services onboard will not require any use of hydraulics.”
Measuring 37 metres (120’) with a beam of 8.10 metres (26’) and a draft of 2.00 metres (7’), the Majesty 120 features advanced composite construction materials, such as GRP and carbon fibre. Gulf Craft’s in-house design studio is responsible for her naval architecture and exterior design, while the Italian studio of Cristiano Gatto Design Team signed the interior design. The extensive use of glass offers connection to the outdoors with low bulwarks allowing for an ornamental glass railing design.
Cristiano Gatto, who has collaborated with the shipyard on projects including the Majesty 175 and Majesty 140, commented, “The Majesty 120 is the result of yet another fruitful collaboration with Majesty Yachts. A true testament to this collaboration, the Majesty 140 took the title of Best Interior Design at the 18th edition of the World Yachts Trophies in Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 for Best Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts from 30-50m.”
‘’I am extremely proud to be part of an open and productive merging of two different design cultures – stated Cristiano Gatto – “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.”
Onboard, she accommodates up to 10 guests across five staterooms in an asymmetric layout. Seven crew are also accommodated onboard. Majesty 120 features a Jacuzzi on the sun deck as well as a hybrid beach club. Another example of innovative design and engineering, the beach club is convertible to a tender storage unit. The VIP stateroom entertainment area can also be transformed into a spacious lounge quarter on the lower deck.
The Majesty 120 will be the first-ever Majesty Yacht model to be completely electrically powered and, apart for the engines and generators, no hydraulic systems are used onboard. This solutions will create a noise-free environment as well as a more efficient construction process that leads to a care-free maintenance lifespan for the owner.
Paul Gray, Chief Operating Officer at Gulf Craft, commented: “Eliminating hydraulic systems around the yacht will lead to less maintenance, fewer opportunities for mechanical failure, decreased noise and the complete elimination of pipes with high-pressure oil around the boat. Everything is always efficiently monitored from the main control screens – in other words, this system offers more comfort for owners and guests and less work for the crew, ultimately resulting in better service and operations on board.”
Construction on hull #01 began in March 2019 and will be completed by March 2020.
