SP-High Modulus has supplied Corecell M-Foam and engineering services to the newly launched Gulf Craft Majesty 135 superyacht.
According to SP, the 41 metre Majesty 135 is the largest Majesty Yacht ever built by the United Arab Emirates based Gulf Craft. The boat has been built to order with the emphasis on comfort. The construction incorporated SP-High Modulus’ Corecell M-Foam, which SP explain was chosen due to its high temperature tolerance, no outgassing, high elongation and toughness and its Bureau Veritas (BV) and Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) approval certification.
Alongside supplying Corecell, SP say they also supported Gulf Craft on the engineering for the project. Successful sea trials of the Majesty 135 have now been conducted and the hand-over of the yacht to the customer is scheduled for April 2012.
Rudy Jurg, Sales Technician at SP-High Modulus commented “We are delighted to see the Majesty 135 project completed and on the water. We would also like to congratulate Gulf Craft on their 30 years in business and we look forward to continuing to work with them on their future projects”.
SP are part of Gurit who will showcase their 2012 product portfolio at booth K44 at JEC Europe next week.
