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.
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.
