    Bilgin Yachts in Turkey should be close to launching or probably have launched the Bilgin 160 classic gentleman's yacht. Here's an earlier construction photo of her...

    "M" is just more and more impressive, the more photos I see of her. Isn't the jacuzzi area on the bow cozy and nice with the foldable bimini/shade?

    Honestly, I am not particularly fond of the hot tub in the bow. It's a lose-lose situation in my opinion; if one leaves the bimini shade down, bathers are uncomfortably close to the pilothouse and if the top is up, the main pilothouse view is blocked and the boat must be piloted via the helm on the sun deck. I suppose that the latter isn't so bad, it seems to create more of a hassle than it's worth. I must confess, too, that I become enamored of well-equipped pilothouses and would hate to be forced to leave.

    Hi,

    It is also interesting to note that the only photo of it with water in the pool is while it is tied up alongside a dock - look how uneven the surface is even then.

    I bet the water would slosh out all over the place when in any position other then secured alongside.

    I say this having been on two large yachts with biggish pools, they were useless most of the time and an unused waste of space the rest of the time.

    What A Beautiful Yacht!

    Wow, Wow, Wow, should I say it again, Wow!!

    What a totally beautiful yacht that is really shown off in this artfully shot video.

    One of the most outstanding design features of M, the unusual bow, really shows off it's stuff as she moves through the water so gracefully with the water misting effervescently in the air as she cuts through the water. Around the 3:40 mark you get some idea of how well she will handle seas. She just flattens the waves right out!

    I loved this design the first time I saw it and have been waiting patiently to see how she would move. Well seeing her in this video sure was worth the wait. If I had a few spare millions and was on the fence about my next yacht I would jump on this one in a heart beat!! :D

    Apparently she (Bilgin Classic 160') is to be called "Antinea".

    All I can say is "WOW" what a beautiful yacht!

    If the construction photos of her interior are any indication when we see the finished product they will be a "WOW" too.
