The shipyard has scheduled the delivery of the first hull of the Bilgin 156 series for late spring 2017, while the second hull will be ready towards the end of 2017.

The exterior styling, naval architecture and structural engineering of the 48m models are by Unique Yacht Design. H2 Yacht Design created the general arrangement and interior design for the Bilgin 156 projects. The vessels measure in just below the 500 GT thresholds and can accommodate up to 11 people in her four guest cabins and large Owner's Stateroom.

The shipyard has completed 87 per cent of the Bilgin 156-I’s construction so far. Basic equipment such as main engines and generators were installed while outfitting of the technical equipment is on-going. Furniture manufacturing is also nearing completion and some installations are under way while the painting process has reached the final coating stages.

The construction of the Bilgin 156-II has also reached 57 per cent with her steel hull and aluminium structure completed. Her painting process has started with the first layers of fairing.
