80m Superyacht By Bilgin 263 Becoming a Reality: Turkish shipyard Bilgin Yachts is well on its way to building the Bilgin 263, which upon completion, will become the largest superyacht ever built in Turkey. The 80m project has been under construction since March. Seven of the vessel’s 25 blocks of her steel hull have been finished, with Bilgin planning to begin block assembly and construction of her superstructure in July.
Completion of the Bilgin 263 will mark entrance into a new market for the Turkish shipbuilder as the new yacht will be 30m bitter than the 50m Dusur, Bilgin’s current largest vessel, delivered in 2015. Additionally, the design of the 263 is more futuristic in design than her predecessors.
Unique Yacht Design is the creator of the contemporary exterior, which has an angular appearance that with lines that still manage to flow into one another. This combination of angularity and fluidity results in what some have described as a wholesome design that lacks extrinsic elements.
The interior is the work of London-based design studio H2Yacht design. Although little is know yet about the interiors, the design is expected to follow the contemporary styling of the exterior.
Bilgin will build the 80 superyacht to ABS class and full LY3 compliance. Two MTU 16V M63R engines will power her.
The vessel has been sold to a long-standing Bilgin client who has previously owned tw Bilgin yachts. Bilgin has scheduled the launch for March 2017.
