Generations of the Bilgin family have plied their refined trade of boat building in Istanbul for over 75 years, launching over 50 motoryachts. For 45 years, they have produced pleasure craft up to 60 meters (196 feet), offered in steel/aluminum and cold molded construction. Bilgin offers customized interiors (they boast a joinery furniture factory) and exterior lines, and craft all types of stainless steel accessories and equipment for their creations. Belgin’s aim is to provide the best possible quality yachts that deliver on customer satisfaction. They have become increasingly more competitive in the world market, starting key partnerships with renowned designers and consultants, including H2 Yacht Designs.
Current models include the Bilgin 98, Bilgin 98 Plus, Bilgin 110 Sky, Bilgin 110 Fly, Bilgin 115, Bilgin 123 Flybridge, Bilgin 123 Skylounge, Bilgin 127, and Bilgin 145. New projects include the Bilgin 132, Bilgin 160 Classic, Bilgin 160 Sister, and Bilgin 156. The Bilgin 160 classic gentleman’s yacht “Antinea” features classic styling matched with modern technology; displaying the finest Turkish wood craftsmanship. With zero speed stabilizers, she’ll provide a comfortable high performance cruising experience. The distinctively modern 40-meter (131 feet) Project M exhibits an aggressive look thanks to her vertical plumb style bow (reverse bow or X-bow) and contemporary lines, including forward-sloping bridge windows. She’ll fly across the waters at top speeds of 23 knots with a cruising speed of 16 knots. “Tatiana,” a Bilgin 145, launched in 2011 with a blue and white Joachim Kinder design and planing hull design.
