Turkish shipyard, Bilgin Yachts has announced the second unit in its Bilgin 163 Series, named THE PROJECT AME, has been sold through a collaboration between FGI Yacht Group, with Frank Grzeszczak Jr., Vice President & Sales Broker of FGI Yacht Group and Berkay Yılmaz, Commercial Director of Bilgin Yachts completing the transaction.
İsmail Şengün, CEO of Bilgin Yachts commented on the completion of the sale, “We are excited about the sale of the second unit of Bilgin 163, which is a reflection of the yacht’s exceptional design and the superior quality of craftsmanship by our team. It is gratifying to see our ambitious project come to fruition and receive such positive feedback from our clients.”
With a delivery date scheduled for May 2024, working with Bilgin Yachts was the perfect yard to help bring his dreams to fruition.
Grzeszczak Jr. says, “the level of professionalism and flexibility shown throughout the negotiation and design process has been nothing short of exceptional. I am confident to say that Bilgin was the perfect match for my client who required considerable flexibility and freedom to make changes to an already in-build project. Once the yacht is delivered, the owner will have opportunities to create unique memories with family and friends.”
Building the Brand
Following in the footsteps of Project ETERNAL SPARK and M/Y SNOW 5 (which was on display at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show and subsequently sold), she will be another perfectly appointed yacht to be delivered to her new owner in the US.
Thanks to a collaboration between Unique Yacht Design who completed the exterior design and naval architecture, and an interior design by Hot Lab, the end result is a stylish yacht with comfortable yacht interiors and an abundance of natural light throughout. With an estimated 20% more use of yacht design and build areas than in comparable 48m (157.5ft) yachts, AME offers even more space for guests to use and enjoy.
Enrico Lumini, Partner and Head of Design in Hot Lab shared, “The interior mood board is based on few natural colors which include the entire range of sand, cream, light grey and off-white elements. It is characterized by a modern look, rich in textures and reflective elements, which at the same time enlarge the space and give the real feeling of an ultra-high-end product. Complex, yet perfectly homogeneous, it looks well-balanced, greatly designed and never ostentatious.”
The Bilgin163 comes equipped with twin 1,450 CAT engines, providing a top speed of around 16.5 knots at a low cost with a range of 5,000 nautical miles at half load.
