A beam of 9.62 metres – which is the vessel’s width – is what provides for the ample space on board. Despite the gross tonnage of 780, the Majesty 175 can cruise even in low-draft areas, drawing just 2.25 metres of water. The shallow draft also enables close beach access.Image Credit: Courtesy Gulf Craft

An Italian detailing – that’s what the Majesty 175 has going for it. The exterior and interior designs are by Cristiano Gatto Design Studio in Italy. The naval architecture is by Massimo Gregori of Yankee Delta Studio. All of this was in evidence at the first sea trial by the vessel. The Majesty 175 undertook a series of inclination experiments for multiple factors at sea, in which the top speed touched 17 knots powered by her twin MTU 12V 4000 M63 engines, each of which delivers 1500kW each.Image Credit: Courtesy Gulf Craft

“She has performed brilliantly on her first sea trial covering multiple factors, including the engines at full speed, the pair of generators, and fin stabilisers as well as the navigation and telecommunication systems,” said Capt. Patricia Caswell, Gulf Craft’s Quality Control Manager. “Preliminary noise and vibration levels are outstanding, and these will continue to improve when the entire interior elements are completed.”Image Credit: Courtesy Gulf Craft
