Bilgin Yacht Projects Coming in 2019

Bilgin YachtsAs we move into the New Year, Bilgin Yachts is full of new ideas and hopes to bring yacht owners an ever better home-life at sea. While owners sail merrily across the seven seas, the shipyard works with world-renown designers to help loyal clients live their own dreams to the full.

Bilgin Yachts has been creating three new projects lately: Bilgin 156, 220 and 263. The Bilgin 156-II has the similar features with 47.5m Nerissa that had debut during 2017 Monaco Yacht Show. The yacht is named as Lilium since it reflects the simplicity and minimalism in its design consisting of light colors, satin gold tones while the use of black marble creates a contrast. The newest project Bilgin 220 has the length of 67m. Being under construction in Yalova, the yacht will bear masculine lines in its interior and exterior designs which fit in its performance up to 17 knots. Last but not least, the 80m Bilgin 263 I and II are getting ready in the shipyard’s newest facility West Istanbul Marina. The yacht has exteriors designed by Unique Yacht Design, interiors by H2 Design Studio and Bilgin Yachts design team. The first unit -also the largest Bilgin yacht up to date- will be launched in 2019.

Mehmet Şengün, General Manager of Bilgin Yachts approaches the yachting sector in a positive way while he believes in technology’s role in building yachts. “In a world where globalism and digitalism are highly important, we always see quite different and new designs in the market. Today, the yachting sector is in an expected point. We blend the designs with the developing technology in our designs while we always follow the trends around the world,” says Mr Şengün.
