Gulf Craft has an impressive track-record with the Asia Boating Awards, receiving an accolade in 2013 for the second-largest superyacht in its collection, the Majesty 135, as well as the ‘Best Asian Yacht Builder’ award (15m to 24m) in 2014, and the ‘Best Asian Built Yacht’ award in 2015 for the Majesty 122.
Gulf Craft is listed as one of the top ten superyacht shipyards in the 2016 edition of the industry leading publication, the Superyacht Intelligence Annual Report. Through its ongoing investment in research and development, the company continues to put the UAE on the map for the timeless design and production of powerfully engineered, world-class luxury yachts and leisure boats.
