Gulf Craft launch 38.4m 'Marina Wonder'
By Ellie Brade
Gulf Craft have completed their second 38.4m Majesty 125, named Marina Wonder, which follows on from her sister ship the first Majesty 125, Grenadines III. Destined for the French Riviera, Marina Wonder features a snow-white superstructure, prairie beige hull and a sky-blue fender line, reminiscent of Grenadines III, which has been an active charter yacht in the same area since her launch in 2010.
There are some noted differences between the two yachts, as Marina Wonder has been semi-custom built for her owner. She features a bespoke interior and a modified exterior plan, with Jacuzzi and sun beds at the upper deck, favouring an enhanced seating arrangement on the fly-bridge. Customised teak decking and outdoor tables characterise the design aesthetic, in accordance with the owner’s taste. Focus remains on plentiful outdoor relaxation and entertainment areas both aft and in the forward area, an element of design that makes the model popular for chartering.
The interior, by Cyrille Bieri Designs, features warm American cherry wood, richly decorated with an assorted variety of onyx marble types combined with Light Crema marfil and Azul Cielo. Marina Wonder has five staterooms, including the main deck owner’s suite, all with ocean views. Designed for comfort and potential long stays aboard, the yacht provides ample cold and dry storage space, but is also equipped with high-end appliances by De Dietrich and Miele, high quality fittings, motorised curtains and the now almost common fully integrated centralised audio visual system with Kaleidescape video servers. Six crew members plus the captain will serve a maximum of 10 overnight guests onboard. The aft garage provides well-protected storage for two tenders, offering flexibility for crew and passenger movement even when the yacht is anchored in open water.
“The Majesty 125 and Majesty 135 superyacht models are two of our most iconic and successful yacht designs in recent years, and we are humbled and proud at the same time by the enthusiastic customer interest worldwide and their confidence in our capabilities,” says Erwin Bamps, COO for Gulf Craft. “With three of these newly introduced superyachts now based in the French Riviera, we expect even more prominent visibility for Gulf Craft’s yacht range and our craftsmanship on an international scale. In the meantime, we are eagerly preparing for the launch of fascinating new products to the global market, always aiming to deliver value beyond customer expectations.”
