NBC Sports Bestows “Best of Show” Award to Dubai-Based Majesty Yachts at 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
Yacht builder’s 140-foot superyacht wins by unanimous decision
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (November 1, 2019) Majesty Yachts, Dubai’s only superyacht builder, was presented the NBC Sports “Best of Show” award during the first day of the 60th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Entering the U.S. market for the first time, the company debuted the Majesty 100 and Majesty 140, which received the award. The boats were judged on uniqueness, innovation, design, functionality and appearance.
“We are extremely honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Greg Terraglio, Managing Partner, Majesty Yachts USA. “While all the boats considered for this distinction are worthy of recognition, we believe that Majesty’s outstanding quality, craftmanship and unique features made the 140 the judges’ top choice.”
The Majesty 140’s outstanding features include extensive glass side windows that draw in the sunlight and offer stunning panoramic views. An opulently finished main deck, full beam owner’s stateroom with sweeping views, private extendable balcony and en suite with jacuzzi tub contribute to the tri-deck superyacht’s stand-out design.
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.
“It is clear that people with a passion for yachting are noticing the high quality craftmanship and excellent value our manufacturing capabilities enable us to deliver,” said Mahmoud Itani, Marketing and Communications Manager at Gulf Craft Inc., which manufactures Majesty Yachts. “We are proud of our entire team for the hard work and dedication it takes to deliver such an outstanding product.”
At their Dubai location, the company employees 1,500 professional designers, expert engineers and skilled craftsmen from around the globe.
In addition to the NBC Sports Best of Show Award, 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.
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.
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.
In addition to the 140 and 100, Majesty offers 175, 155, 125, 122, 120 and 110-foot models.
