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.
Commenting on the project, Bilgin Yachts Shipyard says: “Not only does this superyacht meet the exacting performance standards of the luxury industry but sets the bar for Turkey’s growing high-end yacht sector.”
The new 80m will be fully LY3 compliant. Construction is expected to begin in March 2016 with delivery scheduled for 2019.
