With a show stopping red and white exterior, LEONA was delivered earlier this year and is the culmination of the collaboration between Bilgin Yachts, Unique Yacht Design for naval architecture, and yacht exteriors and interiors by H2 Yacht Design.
Operations Director at Bilgin Yachts, Sencer Güner, overlooked the “meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail in Leona’s construction. Notably, our focus on the main engine and auxiliary equipment has paid off, as evidenced by Leona’s exceptional performance. She proudly shares the COMF+ (Y) notation with her predecessor, [TATIANA], emphasizing her quality and comfort.”
LEONA features many eco-friendly adjustments including a special exhaust system with 100% clean air emissions, two 2,560 kW engines capable of reaching 19 knots at a top speed, and eco cruising speeds.
The yard’s new explorer yacht, KAŞIF, is also the first yacht to be completed at Bilgin Yachts’ Antalya facility.
Emrecan Özgün of Unique Yacht Design, who completed the exteriors, describes KAŞIF as, “the true embodiment of an explorer, engineered for exceptional maritime performance. With minimal fuel consumption, she achieves impressive speeds, setting new industry standards.
The yacht interiors were completed by Enrico Lumini of Hot Lab in a modern but timeless design, reflecting the owners’ passions and esthetic offering harmony across the yacht’s interiors and exteriors. A true explorer yacht, KAŞIF has a range of 5,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots.
LEONA and KAŞIF will be on display for the duration of the Monaco Yacht Show from September 27 – 30.
