Gulf Craft has announced the sale of the first hull of its latest superyacht project, the Majesty 160, which is due for completion in the first half of 2026.

The success of the Majesty 175, the world’s largest composite production superyacht built from carbon fibre and vinylester, led the shipyard and designer Cristiano Gatto to a new venture: Majesty 160.

This project, first unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2022, has been penned by renowned naval architect Van Oossanen, and the shipyard says the yacht will ‘push the boundaries’ of the traditional under 500-gt superyacht category to new heights.

With seven luxurious cabins and top amenities, Gulf Craft says the Majesty 160 – which is being built to commercial class – maximises every inch of available space on board.

“The Majesty 160 project embodies both Gulf Craft’s and Majesty Yachts’ bold vision to fill a distinct gap in the market,” says Mohammed Alshaali, Chairman of Gulf Craft.


“This extraordinary superyacht offers unparalleled space and amenities, delivering luxury living on the water just under the 500-gt mark,” continues Alshaali.

“With meticulous attention to detail, we’ve created a vessel that redefines the yachting experience, setting a new standard of elegance. The Majesty 160 is not just a superyacht – it’s a testament to our commitment to innovation and our dedication to exceeding the expectations of our clients in every aspect of luxury cruising.”

UAE-based Gulf Craft operates two manufacturing facilities – a 462,000-square-foot facility in Umm Al Quwain and a 100,000-square-foot facility in the Maldives, as well as a service centre in Ajman. To date, the company has built over 10,000 boats.

It builds boats under five key brands: the flagship Majesty yachts; Nomad explorer yachts; Oryx sports yachts and open cruisers; Silvercraft – smaller family and fishing boats; and Touring passenger vessels.
