Meet Bilgin 263 Tatiana: The Longest Superyacht Built in Turkey
Bilgin Yachts has currently built three units of the 80-metre Bilgin 263 series. The first unit of the Bilgin 263 series, Tatiana -also named as NB75- was launched in February 2020.
The second hull –which is already sold- is planned to be launched in 2021 and following that, the third hull of the model will be delivered to her owner in 2022. The yachts reflect the shipyard’s goal to be one of the prominent brands in the world.

The series emphasizes eco-friendliness, featuring a special exhaust system that provides 100% clean air emissions. The sharp exterior lines and stylish interior areas of the yacht offer a strong modern feeling. The extensive use of a contrasting combination of rich Macassar ebony, eucalyptus and plenty of marble creates a strong identity and a luxurious ambience in the superyacht.
With two 2,560 kW engines, she can speed up to 20 knots, while the cruising speed is 12 knots. Bilgin Tatiana is built in compliance with IMO Tier III certification and is considered to be the most environmentally-friendly yacht in her class. The third unit of the series is being produced alongside the shipyard’s 85-meter superyacht which is ordered and is planned to be delivered in 2023.
Emrecan Özgün, CEO and the Founder of Unique Yacht Design describes the brand-new 263 series as follows: ‘With her design and comfort elements, the Bilgin 263 is truly one-of-a-kind. We created a very attractive yacht with a sleek and sexy profile while avoiding high dosage design cliches. The increase in living areas normally result in bulky designs. The Bilgin 263 has a design attitude that will dominate the yachting sector around the world. This will clearly make her a trendsetter among steel-aluminium superyachts of today.’
According to Jonny Horsfield of H2 Yacht Design, the first unit of the series Tatiana has a stunning interior complementing the modern exterior lines. He says, ‘The client has been involved in the industry for years and has had several yachts so he knew exactly what to like and what not to like. He loves to entertain his family and friends to sit back and relax whilst cruising the Med. As a result of our works together, Tatiana appeared. This yacht is contemporary in layout with generous living areas, a huge spa and a beach club on the aft deck.’
H2 had to translate the owner’s wishes into comfortable, luxurious yet usable interiors. Timeless understatement is indeed the recurrent theme on board. The highlighted features of Bilgin Tatiana are a private owners apartment on the top deck, a fully equipped gym, with sauna on the portside lower deck as well as a large movie theater. A private office is also found onboard, on the bridge deck while a stunning skylounge themed as a sport’s bar has turned out to be an incredibly relaxing and socializing area.
One of the main features of the interior has to be the stunning beach club. This is the epicentre of the yacht and is directly connected to the main salon via a dramatic staircase. With its 9m internal swimming pool, skylights pouring natural sunlight into the space, and all luxuries to entertain its guests including bar, sunbeds, hammam, and massage room.
Emphasizing the close connection between interior spaces and the marine environment there are two large hull doors that open to reveal the sea beyond.
The Bilgin 263 offers accommodation for up to 14 guests; 8 suites comprising 1 owner cabin on the owners deck, 3 VIP cabins on the main deck and 4 guest cabins on the lower deck. She is also capable of carrying up to 23 crew on-board to ensure a high level of service and a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
There is also an on-spec project 67-meter yacht coming along for 2022, while the latest project is a 50-meter yacht that is planned to be manufactured in the near future. Both yachts have their designs signed by Unique Yacht Design. They have modern lines, spacious interior and exterior living areas as well as meeting all the latest manufacturing standards and best practices of the industry.
