The Gulf Craft Nomad Yachts range is set to expand with the launch of an adventurous new direction for Nomad Yachts at the Dubai International Boat Show. The new range will complement the Nomad 55, Nomad 65 and Nomad 75 models.
The company commissioned the renowned British designer Andrew Wolstenholme to draw up the hull lines of earlier 65 and 55 models, and now the new flagship Nomad 95.
Gulf Craft identified the need to produce a brand that represented values of reliability, seaworthiness, stability and ruggedness. A key element of the design brief for the new Nomad Yachts was to produce vessels that are extremely seaworthy – the choice of the hull design was a critical factor.
The boating market has been changing as an increasing number of yacht owners want to venture further afield with a desire to explore new cruising grounds.
The Nomad Yachts range also incorporate the latest construction materials such as Carbon Fibre and Kevlar in the deck and fly-bridge increasing stiffness, reducing weight and enhancing the stability of the yacht.
The fleet of Nomad Yachts all use a hybrid hull design that gives an outstanding ride in rough conditions with the potential for long-range cruising at a comfortable 15-20 knots with 30 knots maximum speed if required.
The new line of Nomad Yachts to be revealed at the Dubai Boat Show are aimed at experienced boaters in the Gulf and those in mature boating markets like Europe and Australia, where owners value practical features.
