On Friday 22 July, Bilgin Yachts succesfuly delivered 46.8m Giaola-Lu from West Istanbul Marina. Following her launch in April, the 46.8m displacement superyacht has endured an extensive sea trial period and final interior fittings for four months prior to her delivery in international waters to her new Mexican owners.

Giaola-Lu is a fully custom superyacht, which was purpose built for carrying a large amount of guests on board, as the new owners plan to cruise with their extended family of three generations on board at a time.

Giaola-Lu and the team became immediately a part of the client’s family” says Yildrim Bilgin, Bilgin Yachts senior sales manager. “Together they worked on the final details of the transfer. They said that they were more than happy to see the dedicated efforts of our team and showed their gratitude in a very nice way by calling the team back on board just after delivery to present each of them with small gifts.”

One of the distinctive characteristics on board the 46.8m is the quality of network infrastructure, which allows one to control the sound system, climate controls, lighting, curtains, televisions and cameras via an application that works on any mobile device. She also has a high performance entertainment system, supplied by Harman Kardon.

The design of Giaola-Lu has been developed by renowned London-based studio, H2 Yacht Design two years ago. Unique Yacht Design and Bilgin also collaboratively worked on the system design of the yacht.

Designed and equipped to RINA Commercial Class Maltese Cross Hull, unrestricted and LY3 regulations, Giaola-Lu will be able to be used for unrestricted coastal and offshore cruising around Europe, the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Caribbean.
