Bilgin 170-II Arrives for Outfitting in Antalya

Antalya, Turkiye- 3 June, 2024 - Bilgin Yachts is thrilled to announce the arrival of the second unit of the Bilgin 170 series at their state-of-the-art facility in the Antalya Free Zone for outfitting. Following the success of the first unit, which marked a significant milestone in the company's history, this event signifies another momentous step forward in Bilgin Yachts' commitment to excellence and innovation in yacht construction.

Building on the success of its predecessor, the second unit of the Bilgin 170 series showcases the collaborative expertise of the renowned Unique Yacht Design from Turkiye and the esteemed Italian interior design firm Hot Lab. This partnership has resulted in an exceptional vessel that embodies luxury, functionality, and sophisticated craftsmanship. İsmail Şengün, CEO of Bilgin Yachts, expressed his enthusiasm for this achievement: “The arrival of the second unit of the Bilgin 170 series to our Antalya facility is a proud moment for our entire team.”

The Bilgin 170 series epitomizes luxury yachting, seamlessly blending innovative design elements with unparalleled craftsmanship. The Commercial Director of Bilgin Yachts, Berkay Yılmaz states, “The semi-custom Bilgin 52 offers a generous arrangement with accommodation for up to 12 guests and 9 crew. The owner’s suite is situated on the bridge deck. The design of the Bilgin 52 features one of the largest sundecks in this size range. This expansive area contains a jacuzzi for up to 8 guests, a dining area and bar. In terms of specification, the superyacht is equipped with the most advanced specification by Bilgin at 499 GT so far.”

Emrecan Özgün's visionary exterior design enhances the yacht's spaciousness and functionality, providing ample room for both relaxation and recreation. The addition of an elongated bridge deck aft amplifies the living space, offering guests a serene environment to unwind and enjoy the journey. Özgün has utilized the successful platform of the Bilgin 163 to create a larger and more traditional bow shape. This design enhancement provides the yacht with spacious open decks, an expansive storage and parking area for both crew and toys, and a sleeker overall appearance when the bow has traditional style. According to Özgün, “The layout of the Bilgin 170 series remains identical to the sibling models, ensuring familiarity and ease of use for customers. The primary goal during the design process was to optimize the 50-meter models, achieving a more sporty and masculine look while blending the design seamlessly to offer customers the ability to utilize both open and enclosed spaces under 500 gross tons. This focus on functionality and aesthetics has resulted in a yacht that truly stands out from the crowd.”

The Bilgin 170 series promises a captivating blend of style, functionality, and craftsmanship. From its elegant exterior lines to its interior spaces, every detail has been crafted to elevate the yachting experience. Hot Lab design team has skillfully designed the interior spaces of the Bilgin 170 to complement her striking exterior. With a focus on luxury, comfort, and elegance, the interior combines functionality with refined aesthetics.

The second unit of the Bilgin 170 series is scheduled for delivery in time for the pre-season of 2025, following the delivery of the first unit by the end of 2024..
