The Turkish shipyard Bilgin Yachts has announced the start of construction on their largest vessel to date: the 80 metre Bilgin 236, which will also be one of the largest yachts ever built in Turkey. Bilgin Yachts reports that construction officially got underway in March this year.

The project is currently under construction at their facility in Yalova. Seven of a total of 25 blocks of the steel hull is about to finish and the shipyard is planning to begin the block of assembly as well as the superstructure building next month. Two MTU 16V 4000 M63R engines will support the 80 metre vessel on her first sea trials and beyond.

Bilgin 263 was designed by Unique Yacht Design according to the specific client needs and wishes. Defined as the trendsetter of superyachts by her designers, her size, slim outlook, fuel efficiency and comfort makes her a leader in both creativity and execution with a surprising amount of luxury space for each guest under her sleek shape. The delivery date of this 80 metre superyacht project is scheduled for 2019.
