First Classic 160 motor yacht launched by Bilgin
by Raphael Montigneaux
Bilgin has launched its second yacht over 40m in 2012, a 48.7m motor yacht which is the first in its Classic 160 series that captures the look and feel of luxury yachting's golden era.
Built to RINA class and commercial standards, the Bilgin Classic 160 includes the very latest technologies including zero speed stabilisers. Her displacement hull is built in steel with a bulbous bow, and her superstructure is in composite. Powered by twin 700hp MAN engines, she achieves a top speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 13 knots.
Her timeless interior accommodates 12 guests in six cabins: a master, a VIP, two doubles and two twins.
The first Bilgin Classic 160 is now ready to be delivered, and the yacht is for sale asking €11.5 million. Another Classic 160 is currently under construction, and is scheduled for a launch in 2013.
