Bilgin Yachts

Bilgin Yachts is proud to unveil Leona, an 80-meter superyacht, which is part of the impressive 263 series. Leona presents a remarkable blend of sleek, eco-friendly exterior design and a spacious, opulent interior. The collaboration for this superyacht involved several esteemed partners, with naval architecture and exterior design by Unique Yacht Design, and the interior was meticulously crafted by H2 Yacht Design.

While Leona shares similarities with her sister ship, Tatiana, she distinguishes herself in several notable ways. The primary focus during the design process was to enhance room sizes, resulting in reduced cabin numbers but larger accommodations. The lower deck, for instance, allocates the third cabin as an extensive owner’s dressing room. The main deck replaces four guest cabins with two generously proportioned VIP suites, each equipped with his and her bathrooms and dressing rooms.

The most significant transformation takes place on the owner’s deck, which extends the superstructure aft to create an opulent owner’s suite. This palatial space includes a private lounge and access to an exterior pool reserved for the owner’s exclusive use.

Leona’s interior showcases a bold and opulent palette, characterized by intricate detailing and a rich array of decorative finishes and textures. Gloss lacquers, backlit onyx, figurative timbers, gold inlays, and luxurious textiles come together to create an atmosphere that reflects the owner’s interest in travel, love of rich materials, and desire for exciting features. Each interior space has a unique look and feel, elevating the onboard experience.

The main stair lobby, spanning over three decks, is adorned with an impressive bubble tank featuring RGB lighting and pulsing water jets. The striking design incorporates black marble with gold detailing, backlit onyx stair treads, and decorative glass balustrades.

Throughout the interior, exceptional features are found, such as a tiger onyx fireplace dividing the main saloon into a formal dining area and a spacious lounge. African animal prints, textures, and patterns grace mirrors, mullions, and textiles, accentuated by Roberto Cavalli furniture.

The Beach Club layout on the lower deck mirrors that of Tatiana but with a distinctive design theme. Greek statues adorn the pool edge, releasing colored water into the blue-patterned tile pool. Above, a fibre optic ceiling creates a starry night ambiance, complemented by composite marble reliefs depicting edge-lit forest scenes.

The private top deck caters to the owner with extraordinary extravagance, juxtaposing contemporary and traditional architectural detailing. The owner’s bedroom features a platform bed flanked by polished black Sahara marble, and the glass cube-textured ceiling allows natural light to illuminate distinctive furniture pieces.

Every inch of the Leona has been thoughtfully designed to meet the client’s exacting requirements, offering a unique and highly personalised interior characterized by bold selections and exceptional attention to detail. Bilgin Yachts’ Leona sets a new standard for luxurious superyachts.
