In-build: Second 80m Bilgin 263 yacht takes shape

In-build: Second 80m Bilgin 263 yacht takes shape

Turkish yard Bilgin Yachts has released the first in-build pictures of its second Bilgin 263 superyacht, which is due for delivery next year.

The curvaceous exterior of this displacement yacht was created by Unique Yacht Design, while naval architecture is courtesy of Özgün Yacht Design. Like the first Bilgin 263, which is also under construction, this 80.1 metre yacht is being built to ABS standards at West Istanbul Marina with interiors by British studio H2 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 foredeck locker that can swallow up three tenders and four Jet Skis.

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.
