Yacht manufacturer Gulf Craft has announced the exploration of hydrogen technology for its superyacht fleet.

Gulf Craft in partnership with H2-Enterprises is exploring the development of a zero-emissions Majesty yacht, which could be powered by an innovative LOHC (Liquid Organic, Hydrogen Carrier) energy system. H2-Enterprises has been working on this technology for the last 13 years and has now reached the stage of development to power a superyacht.

“We are excited to embark on a significant new milestone in the evolution of luxury yachting and our path to sustainability,” says Gulf Craft chairman, Mohammed Hussein Alshaali. “Gulf Craft has always been driven by a deep commitment to innovation and responsible stewardship of our oceans. Exploring the technology and potential partnership with H2-Enterprises allows us to lead in a new era of emissions-free luxury, where opulence and sustainability intertwine seamlessly.”

Michael Stusch, executive chairman and CEO of H2-Enterprises adds: “CO2 emissions need to be reduced rapidly and radically to achieve the climate change goals. Our LOHC technology is suitable for replacing the current carbon-based pollutant-contaminated CO2 and NOX based energy system.”

Gulf Craft manufacturers boats from 32ft to 175ft in two manufacturing facilities – a 462,000 sq ft facility in Umm Al Quwain and a 100,000 sq ft facility in the Maldives. It also has a service centre in Ajman. To date, the company has built over 10,000 boats.
