Mark Duncan at Yachting Partners International sends news that Gregory Gheraia has now listed no fewer than three motor yachts from the family-owned Bilgin yard in Turkey.
Firstly, the 45m Tatiana, launched in Istanbul in May of this year. With exteriors and interiors designed by renowned German designer Joachim Kinder, she enjoys all the benefits of an open yacht with the volume and comfort of a displacement vessel.
Constructed with cold-moulded technology, finished with West epoxy fibre and completed with an Awlgrip paint system, Tatiana has RINA Pleasure Craft Class plus MMA LY2 certifications and comfortably accommodates up to 14 guests in six cabins including one master suite, one VIP cabin and three guest cabins. Eight crew are accommodated in four cabins in the bow area, including a crew mess. Powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M90 engines, Tatiana cruises at a comfortable 16 knots with a top speed of up to 23 knots. She is asking €15,500,000.
Then there’s the 40m M, with exterior and interior design by H2 Design and one of the most distinctive builds to have come from Bilgin. With its reverse X-bow the exterior is a combination of sharp creases and clean flowing shapes, maximising the interior accommodation without sacrificing its aggressive style.
The interior of M is fresh and modern without looking too starkly minimalist, combining rich maccasser and zebrano woods with warm leathers and fabrics. Fitted with the very latest technology and zero speed stabilisers, M offers accommodation for eight guests in four staterooms and is asking €9,500,000.
Finally, currently under construction at the yard and due for delivery in Autumn 2011, the 48.7 metre Bilgin Classic 160 captures the look and feel of a golden era in luxury yachting. Classic in style, she is packed with the very latest technology and appliances as well as displaying the very best in Turkish wood craftsmanship. A superb Gentleman-Style yacht, the she is is being built to RINA class and commercial standards and includes zero speed stabilisers to offer a comfortable and high performance cruising experience. Accommodating 12 guests in four double and two twin cabins, she is asking €9,150,000.
