The Majesty 175 is being developed in collaboration with the renowned Italian naval architect Massimo Gregory, from Yankee Delta Design Studio based in Milan. Her exterior styling and interior design are the works of famous Italian designer Christian Gatto. Emphasis is placed on substantial lounging and entertainment areas, highlighted by a beach club aft.

A voluminous design expertly incorporates a seven-cabin layout. It features a private owner’s suite on the upper deck and VIP accommodation on the main deck. Enlarged windows and increased levels of light create a modern ambience throughout the yacht and ensure full interaction with the outside environment.
