So far, the yacht has "more than met performance expectations," according to the shipyard, reaching its maximum expected speed of 19 knots and a ’regular driving behaviour’.

Tatiana is now the longest superyacht built in Turkey. Tatiana’s exterior design and naval architecture were created by Turkey-based Unique Yacht Design, while the interiors were designed by the London-based H2 Yacht Design studio.

The Bilgin 263 has a slim and elegant exterior profile with multiple outdoor entertainment areas, such as a huge lounge with dining area and embroidered sofas. Another pilot-house lounge features a heated spa pool, which offers the right privacy even when the ship is moored in port.

Accommodation is provided for 16 guests who will be welcomed into eight cabins, including a master suite, three VIPs and four double cabins. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow a staff of up to 24 people.

The CEO and founder of Unique Yacht Design, Emrecan szgàn, described Tatiana as a "trendsetter" among today’s steel-aluminum superyachts and adds: "We have created a very attractive yacht with an elegant and sexy profile avoiding high-dose design clichés."

This 1,600GT yacht will be compatible with the IMO Tier III certification, and is expected to reach a top speed of 20 knots, thanks to the two MTU 16V4000 M73 diesel engines, while the total fuel capacity of 155,000 liters will allow a range of 5,000 nautical miles when traveling at 12 knots.
