Gulf Craft completed the seatrials with the first Majesty 120 in the Persian Gulf. 37 metres long and 8.10 wide, the yacht is considered a new prime example of the construction and innovation quality of the shipyard from the United Arab Emirates.
On the exterior, the Majesty 120 features sleek and pleasing lines developed by Gulf Crafts own design team. Behind the look is an asymmetrical layout with five cabins for up to eleven guests and voluminous salons and lounges. As with the Majestys 140 and 175, Gulf Craft hired Italian designer Christiano Gatto for the interior design of the tri-decker. He gave the Majesty 120 a very bright, almost minimalist interior, which is guaranteed to appeal to many European customers. Claudia Drettmann: "With Christiano Gatto, Gulf Craft has an excellent designer on board whose work many of our customers appreciate. The saloon, flooded with light through large windows, features a cream-coloured sofa landscape, complemented by dark brown coffee tables, dark blue cushions and two royal blue armchairs. In the Master suite, which extends over the entire width of the hull, the wood tones are revisited; the Italian origins of the designer are clearly recognizable overall.
To complete the work on the GRP Majesty 120, Gatto went into quarantine in the United Arab Emirates. This made completion possible despite lockdown and travel restrictions.
Al fresco, the Majesty 120 on the sundeck offers a bar with barbecue and four chairs and a sofa for six to eight guests. The ensemble is well shaded by the hardtop, while the Jacuzzi in front of it is open-air. Close to water, but then by the sea, owners and guests can also be in the Beach Club. On the platform of the 37-metre yacht a set of seats can be placed behind the stern flap. The flap then functions as a roof; those who need a little cooling off take three steps and jump into the water. A comfortable staircase leads back on board.
Overall, the new Majesty 120 offers around 30 percent more outdoor space than her predecessor.
Another highlight of the Majesty 120 is hidden within the technical equipment: the shipyard almost completely dispensed with hydraulic systems and replaced them with electric ones - from the fin stabilisers to the thrusters and steering, from the balconies to the passerelle. This leads to fewer maintenance intervals and reduces noise, which results in significantly higher comfort for owners and guests. Albert Drettmann: "This puts Gulf Craft in exactly the right direction. Customers are looking for increasingly spacious and quiet interiors. The yacht should be a luxurious retreat with as little disruption as possible".
The 37-meter-long, 8.10-meter-wide and 200-ton displacement Majesty 120 is powered by two MTU diesel engines, each producing 2600 horsepower. The draught is two meters and the volume of the yacht is 290 gross tons. Tanks with a capacity of almost 25,000 liters guarantee an adequate range. There are 4000 litres of fresh water available for hotel operations.
With a new customer, this first Majesty 120 could, by the way, sail immediately; it was built as a spec and show yacht. Albert Drettmann says: "Whenever possible, we are happy to organize viewings on board the Majesty 120. As with all yachts from Gulf Craft, I can only take my hat off to her for her value for money".
