The 80-metre Bilgin Yachts Tatiana is the first of three 80-metre Bilgin 263 superyachts to be built by the Turkish yard (with completion on the other two units slated for 2021 and 2022 respectively), with delivery expected to her owner in 2021.

"We created a very attractive yacht with a sleek and sexy profile while avoiding a high dosage of design clichés. The increase in living areas normally results in bulky designs. The Bilgin 263 has a design attitude that will dominate the yachting sector around the world. This will clearly make her a trendsetter among steel-aluminium superyachts of today."Photo: Bilgin YachtsHe continues: "The owner of 80-metre Tatiana, namely NB75, is in love with sportive and contemporary lines while paying lots of attention to aesthetical details. From the very first meeting, we focused on creating a sport superyacht with elegant living areas. In fact, it was a challenge for us to design a yacht which was both sportive and masculine. We spent so many others working on the details in order to combine different features and make the owner feel at home."Photo: Bilgin YachtsTatiana's contemporary layout incorporates generous living areas, with a huge spa and a beach club located on the aft deck. Accommodation is offered for up to 12 guests across eight staterooms, including an owner's cabin on its own dedicated deck, four additional guest staterooms located on the main deck and one guest stateroom (as well as two crew cabins) on the lower deck. Guests are looked after by a 25 person strong crew.

He continues: "The design can be described as layers of luxury modern. We wanted to achieve an open, airy feel for a clean, sleek look. So the best option was to use light and textured luxury materials. With her sharp, crisp interior lines giving that feel of modernity, we made extensive use of a contrasting combination of rich Macassar veneer and a light eucalyptus, while a book match pattern and gloss finish give a luxurious feel.''Photo: Bilgin YachtsPhoto: Bilgin Yachts"This is combined with plenty of marble and touches of detail such as backlight marble, 3D carved stone, and strong textures."Photo: Bilgin YachtsOne standout area on board Tatiana can be found in her aft deck beach club. As the epicentre of the yacht, it is directly connected to the main saloon via a staircase and comes complete with a 9-metre swimming pool (with skylights allowing in ample natural light) as well as a wealth of amenities, including a bar, sunbeds, hammam and a massage room.

Photo: Bilgin YachtsAs Emrecan Özgün explains: "She will be a very economical yacht compared to her contemporaries. Additionally, while sailing at 12 knots speed with the power of 2,560 kW twin engines and a generator, the fuel consumption is around 250 litres per hour, which we have been used to seeing on a 40-metre yacht until now. So Tatiana is a different, brand-new concept, not only based on her design attitude but also with her performance."Photo: Bilgin YachtsPhoto: Bilgin YachtsGuests can make the most of a plethora of amenities on board Tatiana, including her fully-equipped gym with sauna on the portside lower deck as well as a large movie theatre. Ideally set up for bothnwork and play, Tatiana also comes complete with a private office on the bridge deck and a skylounge which is themed as a sports bar.Photo: Bilgin Yachts
