Yacht builder's 100 and 140-foot superyachts on display for the American market
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (October 21, 2019) Majesty Yachts, Dubai's only superyacht builder, is entering the U.S. market for the first time with the debut of the Majesty 140 and Majesty 100 at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
"We are extremely encouraged by the response that Majesty Yachts has already received," said Greg Terraglio, Managing Partner, Majesty Yachts USA. "Even before the formal U.S. launch we have secured commitments for the sale of both a Majesty 140 and Majesty 100."
The company's vertically integrated build methodology enables Majesty Yachts to provide outstanding quality, craftmanship and personalization with the attractive benefit of timely delivery. At their Dubai location, Majesty Yachts employees 1,500 professional designers, expert engineers and skilled craftsmen from around the globe.
"The efficiencies of our Dubai manufacturing facility and diversified culture enable us to introduce a very high-quality product to the U.S. market with savings of as much as 20 percent compared to currently available competitive yacht offerings," said Majesty Yachts Chairman Mohammed Hussain Alshaali.
Designed to create a "oneness with the sea," the yachts are distinguished by expansive deck areas and large indoor/outdoor flybridges; extendable balconies; fully equipped water sports garages; and beach clubs, where guests can be closer to the water. Spacious salons and generous entertainment areas framed by walls of seamless windows carry the feeling of openness to the interior, making it a signature feature of all Majesty Yachts.
Majesty Yachts is able to build to any international classification that the client requests including ABS, RINA, BV and Lloyd's. Their superior strength, using advanced composites such as GRP and carbon fiber, make Majesty Yachts true ocean-going vessels.
The Majesty 140 features extensive glass side windows that draw in the sunlight andoffer stunning panoramic views. The tri-deck superyacht features an opulently finished main deck, full beam owner's stateroom with sweeping views, a private extendable balcony and en suite featuring a jacuzzi tub.
The Majesty 140 is a collaboration between the shipyard's in-house Design Studio and the Cristiano Gatto Design Team which was responsible for the interior design.
At 398 gross tons, the Majesty 140 is built under Bureau Veritas classification requirements in compliance to LY3 / MCA Cayman Island registry. Powered by twin MTU 16V 2,600hp engines, the yacht is capable of a top speed of 20 knots and cruises comfortably at 16 knots. It boasts an extended range of 4,750nm at 10 knots. Five Majesty 140 yachts have been sold since its introduction at the 2018 Dubai International Boat Show.
The Majesty 140 was recently awarded the Best Interior Design at the 18th edition of the World Yachts Trophies at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 for Best Semi-Displacement or Planning Motor Yachts from 30-50m. In 2018, the Majesty 140 was also awarded "Best Yacht Layout" at the World Yacht Trophies in Cannes.
Gaining world-wide attention since its 2017 launch in Dubai, the Majesty 100ischaracterized by its unique enclosed sky-lounge and a powerful yet efficient propulsion system. Open-plan layout, lavish interiors and ample lounging areas including two folding balconies, four guest cabins and a full-beam master cabin earn its superyacht status. Timeless exterior styling and uncompromised naval engineering are finished with exquisite interior workmanship. Twin 1,900hp MAN engines produce a top speed of 23 knots. Cruising at just over 12 knots, the boat has an impressive range of 1,050 nautical miles.
The Range of Majesty Yachts
In addition to the 140 and 100, Majesty offers 175, 155, 125, 122, 120 and 110-foot models.
The Majesty 175, due for launch at the end of 2019, will be the largest mega yacht in the world to be built fully as a commercial yacht over 500 gross tons using advanced composite materials. The Cristiano Gatto designed tri-deck 490-ton vessel will have trans-Atlantic capability with a range of more than 4,000 nautical miles.
Recently introduced at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show, the 37-meter tri-deck Majesty 120 is the first Majesty yacht to have 100 percent electrically operated services on board that do not require use of hydraulics. All components other than engines and generators are electrically powered including fin stabilizers, thrusters, steering, balconies and passerelle. Hull number one is under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2020.
