Based in Istanbul, Bilgin Yachts builds superyachts up to 120 metres utilising different facilities, from furniture to stainless steel, within the shipyard.
Established on the shores of Bosphorus in 1929, Bilgin Shipyard has remained in the hands of the same family through five generations. Bilgin’s innovative yacht-building technique incorporates the use of stainless steel, while the important amount of the launched yachts are made in steel-aluminium structure. Burma teak obtained from sustainable sources is used for all external deck areas.
In 2012, Bilgin launched its largest yacht to date, the 48.7-metre Bilgin Classic 160. Combining retro exterior styling with contemporary engineering, systems and equipment, this superyacht represents the best of both worlds. A comfortable, full-displacement cruiser, she accommodates 12 guests in six staterooms onboard.
The 45-metre superyacht Elada, launched by Bilgin in 2014, has an instantly recognisable profile thanks to her distinctive reverse bow. Designed by H2 Yacht Design, her naval architecture was developed in-house by Bilgin. She features a bridge-deck master stateroom opening onto a private outdoor deck area.
Bilgin Yachts' experience in the shipbuilding has been recognized when the shipyard was listed among the top 20 builders in the world after the delivery of 46.80 metre Bilgin 155 (Giaola-Lu) in 2016. This success was followed later by 48m Nerissa and Lilium.
After being a member of SYBAss in 2019, the shipyard made her mark by launching the 80-metre superyacht Tatiana a year after. Currently having two other units of 80-meter project Bilgin 263 as well as a 85-meter yacht coming up, the shipyard has become one of the leading players of the world’s yachting sector.
Bilgin Yachts offers a series of pre-designed superyacht models from 45 to 120 metres, but is willing to customise its new yachts to suit individual owners’ needs and desires.
