Bilgin Yachts Shipyard in Turkey has recently signed a new construction order with a repeat client for an 80m yacht. The project is the largest superyacht to be built in the country, the shipyard claims.

This 80m project was created as a concept by Antalya-based studio Unique Yacht Design over the past six months. The engineering component was handled by Özgün Yacht Design.

The construction order was signed on 15th of October in a face-to-face meeting between buyer and builder at the Istanbul head office of Bilgin Yachts Shipyard.
