AS BILGIN YACHTS draws ever closer to delivering its flagship 80-meter motor yacht Tatiana, the yard and its project team were busy in mid-April conducting sea trials in the waters of Istanbul with the new vessel. Code-named NB75, Tatiana was launched in February and is expected to be delivered to her owner this summer.
The project is one of three 80-meter Bilgin 263 superyachts currently being built by the Turkish yard, with the remaining two units expected in 2021 and 2022 respectively.
Designed by Unique Yacht Design, Tatiana is built in accordance with the latest IMO Tier III standards and comes fitted with a special exhaust system that provides “100% clean air
emissions” according to her builder. During her recent sea trials, the vessel achieved a top speed of 19 knots and cruises at 12 knots with a consumption of 250 l/h.
The interior design of the project is by long-time Bilgin design partner H2 Yacht Design from the UK who created “glamorous living areas” around the vessel and a highly-detailed design. “Tatiana has a contemporary layout with generous living rooms as well as a huge spa and beach club in the aft which are considered highlights of her design,” explains Jonny Horsfield. “We tried to bring a crisp and contemporary feel by using a rich palette of colours.”
