The Gulf Craft boat builders of Ajman, UAE have come a long way since their humble beginnings, making open boats in the early 1980s. They since graduated to building small yachts and center console fishing and leisure craft, and most recently, have gotten into the business of building mega yachts. This was a rumor that had been circulating for a few years prior and it has finally become a reality for the two brothers and their friend who established the business in 1982. The Majesty 122 has become their showcase craft and is in competition at yacht shows as a major contender for winning awards for its high-quality design and craftsmanship. If you're not yet familiar with this magnificent vessel, it merits a closer look as it is a beauty that stimulates sheer admiration for yacht enthusiasts.
Description of the Gulf Craft Majesty 122
The Majesty 122 was ordered by a client from Australia and delivered to its new owner in 2016. Looking at the ship from the outside it's a sleek and sporty craft adorned in a black base with white trim atop and it appears to cut through the water, offering the impression that it's a fast and agile yacht. The outward appearance is nothing short of spectacular, and one can tell by the ample amounts of window class and the railed decks that there have been spacious accommodations made for walking the decks safely on the outside or from taking in the views while lounging in the cabins. This is just one example of how Gulf Craft will customize the order. Another sibling features a sporty red and white exterior. The main saloon is spacious and opulent with every inch of space used to maximize the full potential of the area with a mixture of luxury furnishings and amenities, large viewing windows on both sides, and open spaces which allow for plenty of room for standing or walking. Sliding doors open directly onto the deck for fast and easy access to the outside. In the main saloon, there are two large television flat screens, a living/lounging area and a full-sized dining table for taking formal meals. There is space for a family or small party to enjoy time together or to find privacy in one of the many rooms or lounging areas dispersed throughout the ship. The sleeping quarters consist of large open space and luxury king-sized beds in the cabins with ample storage space for personal belongings. A spiral staircase with LED lighting leads to the upper deck in this exquisite luxury craft.
The design of the Majesty 122
Erwin Bamps is the current CEO of Gulf Craft and he explained that the philosophy behind the design of the Majesty 122 is to create a floating resort, and from our preview of the yacht, it appears that they have made good on this endeavor. The ship features panoramic views from the main living areas as well as state of the art technology for the comfort and enjoyment of the passengers.
