Gulf Craft honoured at Asia Boating Awards
Dubai, April 1, 2013
Gulf Craft, the UAE-based global manufacturer of luxury yachts and fiberglass boats, won the Best Asia Built Yacht award for the Majesty 135 at the recent 2013 Asia Boating Awards in China.
Launched in 2012, the Majesty 135 is Gulf Craft’s second-largest superyacht design and in just one year has proved to be amongst the most sought after within its portfolio.
“The Majesty 135 has already made waves in the French Riviera and in the Middle East; being awarded this recognition in Asia is a firm testament to the universal appeal of Gulf Craft’s designs,” said Erwin Bamps, chief operating officer, Gulf Craft.
“The Majesty 135 brings together comfortable and luxurious living areas, exceptionally large entertaining space both indoors and outdoors, and a striking exterior and is one of the most exciting designs to come out of the Gulf Craft shipyard in recent years.”
Powered by MTU 12V 4000 M94 engines, the Majesty 135’s imposing white superstructure and hull, accented by a sleek stainless steel fender line, is at the cutting edge of super yacht design technology and features an excellent fuel efficient performance, a statement said.
John Lee, president of Shanghai Bahrfuss Yacht Sales – Gulf Craft’s representation for Majesty Yachts in China, received the award on behalf of the company. The 2013 Asia Boating Awards ceremony was held on the eve of Hainan Rendez-Vous which runs from March 30 to April 2.
Gulf Craft has a presence at the Hainan Rendez-Vous show through two of its regional dealership partners and will showcase the Majesty 88 – a previous Asia Boating Awards winner, and Silvercraft 34, a popular model representing its extensive range of family and fishing craft, displayed by Dalian Blue Whale Yacht Club.
Gulf Craft will continue through the Asian boat show circuit, with a presence at the China International Boat Show in Shanghai from April 11 to 14 showcasing a Majesty 70, and at the Singapore Yacht Show running from April 18 to 21. – TradeArabia News Service
