The first hull in the Bilgin 263 series, the 80m/ 263ft motor yacht TATIANA has been launched at Bilgin's facilities in Turkey today.
The largest yacht ever built in Turkey hit the water today during a private launch ceremony at Bilgin's yard in West Instanbul.
TATIANA will now undergo outfitting before her new Owner takes delivery in spring or early summer 2020.
The exterior design and naval architecture of the motor yacht come from Turkish designers Unique Yacht Design. London-based studio H2 Yacht Design has crafted her elegant interiors.
TATIANA sports sleek and streamlined exterior styling and plenty of exterior deck areas. On-board highlights include a generous spa pool on the upper deck forward and a large pool on the aft deck with glass fronting. Lounging and dining areas are evident across all the yacht's ample deck spaces.
Accommodation is offered for 16 guests in eight cabins, including a master suite, three VIPs and four double cabins. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to 24 people.

The yacht was sold to a three-time Bilgin client who purchased the yacht in October 2015. Construction began in March 2016.
Chief executive and founder of Unique Yacht Design, Emrecan Özgün, described Tatiana as a "trendsetter among steel-aluminium superyachts of today."
He continued: "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 clichés."
