Istanbul-based shipyard Bilgin Yachts announced the launch of its largest superyacht to date in February: the 80-metre Tatiana. As the first yacht to be completed from the Bilgin 263 range, Tatiana’s launch was commemorated in a private ceremony which took place at the Bilgin Yachts facility in the West Istanbul Marina. The vessel will now be outfitted ahead of her delivery in the spring/summer of 2020.
The 1,680 GT steel and aluminium Tatiana marks a milestone for the Turkish yard, which is currently also working on another two units from the Bilgin 263 range. The second hull, which has already been sold, is on track for a 2021 delivery, after which the third hull is due to join her owner in the same year.
The 80-metre Bilgin 263 range is characterised by sharp exterior lines designed by Unique Yacht Design - who also completed her naval architecture - and a commitment to minimising carbon emissions. Built
in compliance with IMO Tier III certification, and featuring a special exhaust system that provides 100% clean air emissions, Tatiana has a remarkably eco- friendly outlook.
