Bilgin Yachts Celebrates Dual Finalist Nominations at the BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards

Istanbul-based Bilgin Yachts, synonymous with craftsmanship, innovation, and sustainability, proudly unveiled two exceptional yachts, the 80-meter Leona and the 42-meter Kaşif, at the 2023 Monaco Yacht Show. These yachts have now been announced as official finalists in the prestigious BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards.

Leona: A Regal Marvel

The 80-meter Leona, featuring a striking red hull and white superstructure, has captured the attention of nautical enthusiasts and experts alike. Recognized for Outstanding Exterior Design, Best Interior Design, Naval Architecture, Eco Award, and Outstanding Lifestyle Feature, Leona stands out as a true masterpiece.

Leona emerges as the second jewel in Bilgin Yachts' illustrious 80-meter Bilgin 263 series, following the resounding success of the first unit, Tatiana. Collaborating with Antalya-based Unique Yacht Design for naval architecture and exterior design, along with H2 Yacht Design for interior living spaces, Bilgin Yachts has meticulously crafted a vessel that seamlessly blends comfort and performance.

Kaşif: Redefining Exploration

Launched earlier this summer, the 42-meter Kaşif is a bold interpretation of the explorer yacht concept. Nominated for Best Interior Design and Best Naval Architecture, Kaşif's unique exterior styling breaks away from traditional explorer yacht design, showcasing a blend of aggression, sportiness, and elegance.

Crafted under the collaborative prowess of Unique Yacht Design, Hot Lab, and Bilgin Yachts, Kaşif’s innovative design redefines exploration. The 42-meter vessel stands as a testament to Bilgin Yachts’ pursuit of excellence, anchored at the new Antalya Free Zone facility. This visionary vessel has already garnered attention for its exceptional blend of comfort, quality, and modernity, a hallmark of Bilgin Yachts.

Bilgin Yachts extends sincere appreciation to its supportive community, whose encouragement has played a crucial role in these notable accomplishments. The acknowledgment as finalists in the BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards reflects Bilgin Yachts' steadfast dedication to advancing the frontiers of luxury yacht design and innovation.
