Bilgin Yachts

Based in Istanbul, Bilgin Yachts builds superyachts up to 65 metres utilising cold-moulded wood construction.


Established in 1929, Bilgin Shipyard has remained in the hands of the same family through five generations. Bilgin’s innovative yacht-building technique incorporates double-layered epoxy laminated marine plywood on mahogany frames, covered with double-layered FRP and West Epoxy Resin. Burma teak obtained from sustainable sources is used for all external deck areas.

Notable Yacht

In 2012, Bilgin launched its largest yacht to date, the 48.7-metre Bilgin Classic 160. Combining retro exterior styling with contemporary engineering, systems and equipment, this superyacht represents the best of both worlds. A comfortable, full-displacement cruiser, she accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms onboard.

The 45-metre superyacht Elada, launched by Bilgin in 2014, has an instantly recognisable profile thanks to her distinctive reverse bow. Designed by H2 Yacht Design, her naval architecture was developed in-house by Bilgin. She features a bridge-deck master stateroom opening onto a private outdoor deck area.


Bilgin Yachts offers a series of pre-designed superyacht models from 29.9 to 65 metres, but is willing to customise its new yachts to suit individual owners’ needs and desires.
