Aqua Marine signs exclusive partnership with Gulf Craft
Aqua Marine has secured an exclusive partnership with middle eastern shipbuilder, Gulf Craft. The brokerage will act as the exclusive dealer for its Majesty Yachts and Nomad Explorer brands in France and Monaco.
Aqua Marine joins Gulf Craft’s 28 global distributors, eight of which were added to its network last year across 12 European countries. These include: Germany, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands.
“The Majesty and Nomad ranges are highly sought after amongst our clientele of marine lifestyle enthusiasts and so there is great potential for even more success,” said Nicolas Bochno, manager, Aqua Marine.
Aqua Marine has already brokered the sale of two Majesty 120 yachts (pictured) and two Majesty 100 yachts – the latter of which was Gulf Craft’s best-selling vessel in 2021.
“France and Monaco hold a distinctive position in the global yachting community,” said Mohammed Hussein AlShaali, Gulf Craft’s chairman.
“We are certain that Aqua Marine, with its stellar reputation and experience of more than 25 years in the maritime industry and understanding of the yachting scene in these two very important markets, is the ideal partner to represent our Majesty and Nomad brands to our European clientele.”
Since the company started in 1982, Gulf Craft has gone from a builder of small fishing boats to a superyacht builder with four brands in its portfolio. It also has a service and maintenance company.
“Gulf Craft is one of the industry’s leading manufacturers so it’s an honour to join the family as its exclusive dealer and support the company as it further expands its footprint around the world,” added Bochno.
