PUBLISHED October 16, 2021

Gulf Craft has unveiled a new range of products that include sleek sporty styling and sustainable technologies at the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show, which was inaugurated on October 13 by Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of the Board of the Frontline Heroes Office. The event runs till October 16.

An all-new 49-foot flybridge yacht from Gulf Craft’s flagship Majesty Yachts was premiered at the show, focusing on a young sporty style with impressive speeds. Also in the new lineup is the Silvercraft 47, a leisure fishing boat with a unique layout ideal for families spending the day on the water. The Silvercat 40 Lux is also on display, which boasts impressive new solar technologies allowing the family onboard to enjoy a quiet night’s rest with full air conditioning without the noise of a generator. 

After a summer of proudly flying the UAE flag at appearances around the globe including high-profile international events such as Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show, Gulf Craft is the largest exhibitor at Abu Dhabi International Boat Show. Showcasing six spectacular vessels, Gulf Craft is exhibiting products from its range of leisure and fishing boats, sports cruisers, adventure yachts, and luxury vessels from its flagship Majesty Yachts collection. 

One of the world’s leading boat and yacht builders with a fully integrated in-house facility in Umm Al Quwain, Gulf Craft designs, engineers and manufactures all of its products in the UAE. The company is gaining a strong foothold in international yacht markets with its industry innovation – particularly in the use of composites. In September, the company announced its major expansion across Europe to meet growing demand from the continent alongside its focus on the USA and Australian markets. In the first half of 2021, Gulf Craft saw a significant 42 percent increase in new orders, and as the boat and yacht manufacturer’s popularity continues to gain pace it is exploring an expansion of its Umm al Quwain manufacturing facility to accommodate the growth. 

Speaking at the Abu Dhabi International Boat Show, Gulf Craft’s Chairman, Mohammed Hussein AlShaali, said. “We have made a significant investment in creating the world’s first fully integrated design and production facility for boats and yachts, with a first-class team developing world-class products. We are proud to be doing it in the UAE and contributing to our country’s economy. The Emirate’s manufacturing industry is on the rise, and we are very pleased to be part of that growth. Gulf Craft has been proudly making boats and yachts in the UAE for 40 years – upholding the centuries-old maritime heritage of the Arabian Gulf.
