PREMIER BOATBUILDER IN THE EMIRATES DISPLAYS OCEANGOING NOMAD YACHTS FOR FIRST TIME AT GLAMOROUS MONACO YACHT SHOW
A celebration of global yachting lifestyle, Monaco Yacht Show is taking place this week.
Gulf Craft’s acclaimed Nomad 95 SUV was revealed on day one of this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. The Nomad 95 Sports Utility Vessel (SUV) made its European debut at the glamourous event.
Gulf Craft Executive Chairman, Mohammed Hus- sein Alshaali, said: “We are proud to present our Nomad Yachts at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show. As one of the most important events in the yach- ting industry, the 2019 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show is the ideal place to showcase Nomad Yachts. The perfect vessel to discover new cruising groun- ds or experience adventure out at sea, the Nomad 95 SUV yacht is a superb example of Gulf Craft’s market-leading design and performance abilities. We’re sure that the Nomad 95 SUV will prove to be hugely popular at Monaco.”
Designed for ‘adventure onboard’ Nomad Yachts feature hybrid hulls, a characteristic that sets them apart and provides their distinctive seakeeping and ocean-going capability.
With Nomad Yachts, the Gulf Craft in house design studio along with acclaimed British Naval Architect Andrew Wolstenholme have created something unique, a collection of true long-range luxury yachts, able to master all weather conditions whilst
retaining superb levels of comfort and style.
Until recently, the Nomad Yachts range consisted of the Nomad 55, 65, and 75, featuring a conventional fly-bridge design.
These models have now been joined by the revolu- tionary new SUV collection, comprising the No- mad 65 SUV, Nomad 75 SUV, and flagship Nomad 95 SUV. These new additions break new ground with unique layouts, spacious interiors and proven ocean-going performance.
The Nomad 75 SUV exhibited at Cannes demon- strated these traits during its voyage from Dubai, a journey of over 4,500 nautical miles, during which the vessel experienced challenging sea conditions. Despite 30-knot headwinds and 3-meter waves, skipper and crew remained comfortable and safe as the Nomad 75 SUV took the journey in its stride. Made of advanced composite materials such as kevlar and carbon fibre, Nomad Yachts are light strong and fuel efficient, making them among the best performing and most stylishly designed vessels on the market.
The new SUV collection benefits from unique, in- novative design features, such as the master state- room being at main deck level – not below deck in the hull as in all other boats of an equivalent size. Curved windows surround the front half of the rooms providing great views and an abundance of natural light.
Yachts in the SUV collection also feature an enclo- sed sky lounge and wheel house on the upper deck. This extremely versatile space can be fully enclosed to provide air-conditioned comfort – or opened to enjoy the sun and elements. All three SUV models have the option to use the latest solar panel techno- logy to constantly charge batteries during daylight hours, providing enough power to run all the boats auxiliary equipment at night.
Particularly useful in areas that benefit from exten- ded periods of sunshine, such as the Middle East and the Mediterranean in Southern Europe, the Nomad Yachts available solar tech is a major boost to its appeal among customers who increasingly look for eco-friendly options.
The Nomad 95 SUV is designed to CAT A standard and meets Bureau Veritas Commercial Charter requirements.
An additional feature on this vessel is a huge garage providing lots of space for tenders and water toys. This, along with extensive crew quarters, including space for up to seven crew on the 95 SUV, makes the yachts ideal for longer cruises or charter opera- tion.
The Nomad Yachts fleet has created a unique cate- gory within the yacht industry, with specific design features that you would only find on yachts of a much larger size, providing everything needed for family and friends to enjoy time on the water.
