Second Bilgin 156 gets technical launch

Turkish builder Bilgin's latest superyacht  Bilgin 156-II has had its technical launch. She is the second of the Istanbul yard’s speculative 48-metre motor yacht projects.

The launch follows the joining of the hull and superstructure in March, when she was brought to the Bilgin headquarters in Küçükçekmece after her assembly earlier this month.  

The 47.6 metre superyacht has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. The exterior of the vessel was designed by Unique Yacht Design and the interior work undertaken by H2 Yacht Design.

Speaking of the joining of the hull and superstructure last month, a company spokesman said: “The Bilgin 156-II showed the magnificence of her interior and exterior spaces after the superstructure was placed on top of the hull.”

The three-decked, full displacement yacht has room for 10 guests in five cabins and nine crew. The guest accommodation comprises a master-suite, two double rooms and two twins. Her two diesel MTU 12V2000 engines facilitate a cruising speed of 12 knots and top end of 15.

The first Bilgin 156 is due for delivery at the end of 2016. The yard's largest-ever superyacht is also in-build; the 80m Bilgin 263 was sold in October 2015 and is the biggest to be built in Turkey.
