Kuwait: Gulf Craft, the Emirates pioneer builder of luxury yachts and leisure boats, and Al Boom Marine, its dealer in Kuwait, explore a world of opportunities at the 7th international edition of the Kuwait Yacht Show 2019. The shipyard returns to the show with a fleet of 7 yachts and boats, boasting its leading position in the Kuwaiti boating market. The client base that Gulf Craft has in Kuwait is considered one of its highest.
The award-winning Majesty 100, the first superyacht in the Majesty Yachts collection to have a sky-lounge-partially enclosed fly-bridge, will also be the largest vessel on display.
Gulf Craft will also present an all-new range of innovative Nomad Yachts, the next generation of Oryx Sport Cruiser and a new breed under the Silvercraft fishing boats.
The company has envisioned the year 2019 as "The Year of Nomad Yachts". The new fleet adopts a smart approach to family yachting with its choice of environment-friendly yachts. The company has been increasing its efforts to reduce carbon footprint and an example of this is the Nomad 65 SUV auxiliary equipment which is solar-powered. In line with this vision, Gulf Craft will offer a solar-power option for all its yachts in the future.
Gulf Craft's newly launched Nomad Yachts SUV (Sports Utility Vessel) Collection answers the need for practical, long-range luxury yachts. The Nomad 95 SUV, Nomad 75 SUV and Nomad 65 SUV all feature semi-displacement hybrid hulls designed to withstand any sea condition and are able to travel long distances. The new yachts were built using advanced composites like Kevlar and carbon fibre which increases stability and fuel-efficiency as well as decreases the displacement of the new range of Nomad Yachts.
The next biggest surprise at the Gulf Craft pavillion is the much-anticipated Oryx 379 sport cruiser. A step forward with a new brand DNA, the new 379 has been designed by the up-and-coming Emirati designer, Hussein M. AlShaali. The chic 37-foot sport cruiser features an impressive use of space and can accommodate 4 guests in absolute comfort.
Gulf Craft started off successfully building catamarans for its power boat racing teams during its early years. The company returns to its roots this year by showcasing a SilverCat 34 center console fishing boat powered by dual engines that reach speeds of up to 50 knots.
One of the key international marine events in the region, the seventh edition of Kuwait Yacht Show will be held at Marina Crescent, Salmiya from 26th to 30th March. Gulf Craft will be welcoming guests at stand B 10.
