Best Yacht Installation | GulfCraft Majesty 122 Archimedia Middle East

Neat, tidy, sensible and proportionate

Having worked with GulfCraft for over three years, Archimedia has an excellent understanding of their needs. Unlike projects where the system being designed for someone with particular requirements, this project is for future buyer, so the brief remained straight forward – install a system which adds value to the yacht, and can be expanded and customized for the future owner.

Reliability and ease of use were paramount on the Majesty 122, and all yacht installations, as the installer wants to avoid service needs whilst the yacht is at sea. Archimedia opted for Savant for both control and AV switching, while Kordz HDBaseT extenders were used for HDMI distribution. To ensure audio can be heard on the deck, marine-grade outdoor speakers from Sonance were installed, while inside, high quality audio is courtesy of Bowers & Wilkins speakers. To suit the interior design and to maximize the available space, Archimedia installed Mirror TVs in the bedroom suites.



Archimedia opted for iPads as the main user interface, which connect through a robust Ruckus wireless network. An Ihiji remote monitoring system allows complete visibility of the installed systems wherever the yacht is located.



The navigation and management systems are integrated into the AV system to allow occupants to monitor the yacht’s location and status. Archimedia completed another successful yacht install for GulfCraft, The Majesty 135. The system includes Savant control, AV switching and AV distribution, a Kaleidescape movie server, Humax satellite receivers and Apple TVs.



The installer specified Sonance outdoor speakers, and Bowers & Wilkins indoor speakers. Archimedia installed 5.1 and 7.1 surround systems, thanks to an in-ceiling sub from Sonance. A drop down screen was installed on the sun deck to provide outdoor entertainment, while internally, flat panel TVs were used.
