Bilgin’s newest outfitting facility—located in Istanbul—was proud to announce the official beginning of an 80 meter masterpiece. Bilgin 263 is expected to be delivered around the end of 2019, and though it is the flagship project of this particular site, the company is unapologetically creating some bold expectations.
The synergy that has already been established between Bilgin, naval architecture firm Unique Yacht Design, and interior design firm H2 Design Studio makes it seem as if this project cannot help but be a success. The unbounded enthusiasm that has been projected by all of the companies involved certainly give the future owners a lot to look forward to.
The design team hopes to create a ship that is luxurious without making any sacrifices when it comes to performance. The overall length of 80.1 meters and the maximum beam of 12.2 meters will perfectly balance the ship’s ability to voyage on long journeys (with an economical cruising range of 5,000 miles) and also contain a wide variety of luxury amenities.
The maximum speed at half-load displacement is planned to be 18 knots and the gross tonnage is designed to be 1,600 GRT. This ship is one whose design, dimension, and performance efforts are quite impressive, and those who are interested in seeing the potential of Bilgin’s newest outfitting facility unfold certainly ought to be following along as she develops.
