Keeping so much of the build process in house, the company are also able to ensure the highest standards of quality at extremely competitive prices to their clients.

Within the last 45 years, over 50 motor yachts have been successfully launched and now the company is ready to take their entire operation to the next level. With an extensive in-depth knowledge of their own products, it has come as a natural move for Bilgin Yachts to take in all sales and marketing operations. The company will be handling these activities in-house, under the direct responsibility of Yildirim Bilgen.

In addition to the internalisation of all marketing and sales activities, Bilgin Yachts has also attracted a new in-house designer who will be making full use of their impressive new facilities at the yard's Istanbul based location.
