Second 80m Bilgin 263 superyacht sold
by Chris Jefferies
Due to be built to ABS standards and delivered by the end of 2019, the second Bilgin 263 will follow the first model by featuring interiors by British studio H2 Yacht Design.
The sleek exterior of this displacement yacht was created by Unique Yacht Design of Antalya, while naval architecture is courtesy of Özgün Yacht Design.
Exterior relaxation spaces are plentiful, with a large aft-deck Jacuzzi and an al fresco dining area and cocktail bar on the bridge deck. The superyacht beach club on the Bilgin 263 features a pool with swim-up bar and two fold-out side sections for great views out to sea.
The upper deck is dedicated to the owner, with an aft sunbathing area, aft-facing suite, forward-facing lounge and private superyacht spa pool.
On the main deck there is a spacious saloon and seating for all 16 guests around the main dining table.
Tender and toy storage is provided in a fast foredeck locker that can swallow up three tenders and four Jetskis.
Power comes from a pair of 3,433hp MTU diesel engines for a top speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. Zero speed fin stabilisers will provide a smooth cruising experience both underway and at anchor.
Other projects currently under development at the Turkish yard include the first hull in the Bilgin 263 series, which is also due to be launched in 2019.
