Since she debuted at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last autumn, the Majesty 140 has been educating Americans about Majesty Yachts. The 16-year-old brand initiated as a way to deliver flying-bridge yachts to clientele primarily in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. However, thanks to the appetite for megayachts with quick delivery, eminently flexible layouts, and attractive pricing, the Majesty 140 is intriguing new customers in the world’s biggest yachting market.
Majesty Yachts is a division of Gulf Craft, a boatbuilder dating back to 1982. Specifically, it’s the superyacht division. The offerings start with the Majesty 100 and culminate with the Majesty 175, the latter of which is still in the construction stage. Since the Majesty 140 and her sisters start both under contract and on spec, buyers need not wait long to take delivery. “We have enough money to stock these boats,” says Greg Terraglio, managing partner of Majesty Yachts USA. In fact, Terraglio has already sold one Majesty 140 begun on spec. He adds that there’s strong interest in another Majesty 140 he has in South Florida, too.
Among the things attracting potential buyers is the 398-gross-ton volume, significant for her size. Another attraction: the no-holds-barred ability to customize the interior. Majesty Yachts collaborates with Cristiano Gatto Design, and the duo will design spaces as you wish. Upper-deck master suite? Sure. Extra-large saloon, with all dining outside? Absolutely. In addition, non-structural bulkheads are movable.
Wisely, the Majesty 140 incorporates features that customers won’t want to change. For instance, balconies deploy from each side of the aft main deck—meaning the outdoor space, not the enclosed areas. Certainly, balconies off the saloon and/or dining area are quite popular. But, Majesty Yachts reasoned that enhancing the alfresco area would be even more appealing. Still on the subject of balconies, one sits off the master suite, forward on the main deck. Sliding-glass doors let you access it.
Enjoy this look at the Majesty 140, which reportedly achieves a 4,750-nautical-mile range at 10 knots. The chairman of Majesty Yachts additionally says her price point is up to 20 percent less than comparable yachts. You can inspect her this season at both the Miami Yacht Show and the Palm Beach International Boat Show. And, look for the above-mentioned Majesty 175, which will become the new flagship, to premiere at the Fort Lauderdale show in the fall.
