Lauderdale Marine Center (LMC), the largest yacht repair facility in the United States, is pleased to announce that Emiratesbased Gulf Craft has selected the shipyard as the location for its U.S. Accredited After Sales Service Center.

"As builders of award-winning brands such as Majesty Yachts and Nomad Yachts, Gulf Craft was seeking a service partner that could accommodate their range of yachts from 55 feet to 175 feet, which LMC is very well positioned to do," said Colin Kiley, Executive Vice President of LMC. "We are proud to build upon our successful relationship with Gulf Craft, a builder we hold in very high regard."

LMC has over 1600 total vessel visits and more than 1300 haul-outs per year.

"The United States is the most mature market in the world, with the highest number of boats in one country. Gulf Craft had a successful entry to the US market at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show where our exclusive distributor, Majesty Yachts USA displayed the award-winning Majesty 140 and the Majesty 100." said Nizar Tagi, Chief Commercial Officer for Gulf Craft.

"As we continue solidifying our presence in the Americas, our partnership with LMC was crucial to our expansion and most importantly customer satisfaction. LMC's facilities share the same ethos as Gulf Craft, and we are glad to have them as our US service partner."

"We are happy to welcome Gulf Craft brands to a growing list of prestigious builders that choose to call Lauderdale Marine Center their Yard of Choice," added Kiley. We at LMC are looking forward to being a mainstay of Gulf Craft's expansion into the United States and are eager to support them and expand our partnership for years to come."
