Sail-World.com : New Gulf Craft models at Dubai International Boat

New Gulf Craft models at Dubai International Boat

Gulf Craft Inc, the Middle East’s largest boat and yacht manufacturer, has today revealed 5 new models in its expanding product range that aims to tap into its rapidly expanding customer base. The new additions include two new luxury yachts, the Majesty 77 and Majesty 121 as well as the Silver Craft 37, representing Gulf Craft’s latest product line up, the Silver Craft range, and the revolutionary Oryx 40 Fly and 46 Fly.

Launching a record number of models at this year’s Boat Show, Gulf Craft is debuting its new generation of Majesty Yachts which feature a new sleek, modern style and contemporary interior that is favoured among its growing European customer base.

“Over the last 12 months Gulf Craft has seen a significant rise in the number of European dealerships and customers. Global economic trends such as a weak dollar and strong Euro have enabled Gulf Craft to increase its market share in Europe to become a favoured brand on the continent. The introduction of two new Majesty yachts will further add to the impressive portfolio of vessels Gulf Craft currently offer and help to further cater to the European and international market”, said Mohammed Hussain Al Shaali, Chairman, Gulf Craft Inc.

The Majesty 121 is a true super yacht, from the immaculate exterior styling and the no-compromise naval engineering to the exquisite interior workmanship. Built under rigorous class inspection, Majesty Yachts contain a host of amenities and feature the latest high-tech entertainment facilities. Majesty 121 specifications have been designed to set a new standard for super yacht construction. The Majesty 77 represents the new Majesty Yachts generation, replacing the Majesty 75, launched in 2004. With its striking new interior concept and its prominent exterior profile, it already attracted a lot of customer attention prior to its global launch on the Dubai international boat show 2008.

In addition, Gulf Craft’s Silver Craft range of sporty, fishing and family boats will make its Middle Eastern debut at this year’s DIBS. Having taken the Mumbai Boat Show by storm earlier this month, the Silver Craft range, with its sporty design looks is set to do the same in Dubai.

“Based on the Middle East’s growing demand for smaller leisure craft, we believe the Silver Craft range will tap into this lucrative market and become a firm favourite at the Dubai International Boat Show,” added Erwin Bamps, Executive Manager, Gulf Craft Inc.

Adding to its popular Oryx range, Gulf Craft is launching the Oryx 40 Fly and 46 Fly at the event, the first fly-bridge version in its already popular sport cruiser range. The creation of its second line-up of yachts dedicated towards a young and trendy customer base, rather than the up-market and exclusive luxury oriented Majesty Yachts range, is no less than ground-breaking. With its distinctive orange color marking and its rather aggressive sporty looks, the Oryx Sport Yachts & Cruiser series has already carved itself an enthusiastic following and brand recognition in the GCC market.

Gulf Craft is once again a most prominent exhibitor at DIBS 2008 and is exhibiting a total of 17 vessels at this year’s premier boat exhibition representing the company’s growing market share and continued commitment to servicing the maritime needs of the Middle East. With two dedicated stands and a total of 13 boats displayed on water Gulf Craft will once again be the exhibitor to visit.

Dubai International Boat Show is one of Gulf Craft’s most important events in the maritime calendar. In 2007, the local company secured sales worth more than $20 million during the exhibition.

“The Dubai International Boat Show is an excellent platform to launch new models and a fantastic opportunity to showcase the quality of manufacturing, design and finishing of our crafts. Visitors to DIBS are highly discerning and this premier exhibition is a great platform for sales both in the region and beyond,” said Mohammed Hussain Al Shaali, Chairman, Gulf Craft Inc
