A rising star in Turkey
Begum Yachting stakes its claim as a premium superyacht agent and full-service centre in Turkey…
The superyacht industry has long been dominated by European shipyards, but a new player is emerging on the scene: Turkey. With a rich maritime heritage and a growing reputation for quality craftsmanship, Turkey is becoming an increasingly popular choice for superyacht construction.
One company at the forefront of this rise is Begüm Yachting, which recently announced the building of its 32m motoryacht Lady Luna. SuperyachtNews explores the Turkish superyacht building market and the full services provided by Begüm Yachting.
“There is a saying that the end of every road leads home,” says Begum Doğulu CEO and founder of Begum Yachting. “As a company, we see everyone visiting our country as our guests, always welcoming them with this view and every time they come back, we greet them by saying that ‘The end of your road brought you back to your home’.”
