Turkish shipyard, Bilgin Yachts has announced the sale of their Bilgin 170 (52m) model. At 170ft (52m), she is being designed in collaboration between exterior designer, Emrecan Özgün of Unique Yacht Design with interior designs by Hot Lab from Italy.
Berkay Yılmaz, Commercial Director of Bilgin Yachts, shared the following on the sale, “This agreement serves as further evidence of Bilgin’s commitment to nurturing long-term relationships with clients, professionals, and owner representatives. While this marks our first collaboration with this client, they have been closely observing Bilgin Yachts for the past 4-5 years. They’ve visited our shipyard and had the opportunity to explore vessels such as the 80-meter M/Y [TATIANA] and the M/Y [MOONRAKER] (formerly known as SNOW 5), leaving them impressed by the superior quality of our craftsmanship, interior design, and engineering, not to mention our overall design philosophy. In the initial phase of our partnership, our client continued to enjoy their existing yacht, which provided invaluable insights for our shipyard and designers. This allowed us to tailor the new semi-custom project, the Bilgin 170-52 meters, to perfectly match the client’s lifestyle and expectations.”
With a sleek and modern design, the Bilgin 170 aims to differentiate itself from other 50m yachts. An elongated bridge deck aft extends the area by 1.5m, creating a larger living space to enjoy the view in the sun or under cover of the shaded area.
İsmail Şengün, CEO at Bilgin Yachts, shared this on the Bilgin 170 design: “Unique Yacht Design’s approach and Hot Lab’s interior design have resulted in a vessel exuding sportiness and elegance, elevating the yacht experience to new heights.”
“At Bilgin, our mission extends beyond merely selling the highest-quality yachts in Turkey. We take pride in our ability to design and construct the finest yachts in the country, utilizing proven engineering platforms. We are committed to leading the Turkish Yachting Industry in the semi-custom range, especially for yachts measuring 50 meters and above, all built upon established platforms,” Berkay closes.
The first two units of the Bilgin 170 range are scheduled for delivery by early 2025, with the third and fourth units available in 2026.
