First unit in 52m Bilgin 170 series completes technical launch

15 February 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Turkish shipyard Bilgin Yachts has announced the technical launch of the first Bilgin 170. The 52-metre model will now enter her final outfitting, commissioning and sea trials, with delivery scheduled for the end of 2024.

Bilgin 170 is a collaboration between Unique Yacht Design and Hot Lab and is based on the Bilgin 163 – one of which is the 50-metre Eternal Spark, which was launched this month.

This model offers an identical layout to the Bilgin 163, but has more space and a more traditional bow design. The bridge deck has been extended by one and a half metres, the bow offers an additional relaxation area once the rescue boat is deployed and an extended swim platform offers a larger space at the water's edge. Bilgin 170 also features "one of the largest sundecks in this size range", equipped with an eight-person Jacuzzi, a dining area and bar.

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests and nine crew, with the owner's cabin situated on the bridge deck.

"The primary goal during the design process was to optimise the 50-metre models, achieving a more sporty and masculine look while blending the design to offer customers the ability to utilise both open and enclosed spaces under 500 gross tons," explained Emrecan Özgün of Unique Yacht Design. "This focus on functionality and aesthetics has resulted in a yacht that truly stands out from the crowd."

According to BOATPro, there are eleven other yachts currently under construction at the Turkish shipyard, including three Bilgin 173s and three Bilgin 170s.

This follows the interior reveal of the first vessel to emerge from Bilgin's Antalya facility – the 41.9-metre explorer Kaşif.
