Launched in April 2019, Bilgin Yachts’ Lilium is the second motoryacht of their 156-foot (47.5 meter) series. The first in the series was Starburst-III (ex-Nerissa), launched in 2017.
"It is always exciting to see the end result of our designs. After the success of Nerissa, we can't wait to see how Lilium will affect the ones who see her. She is a proud example of today's globally recognized Turkish craftmanship." says Emrecan Özgün, Founder and CEO of Istanbul-based design office Unique Yacht Design. The Bilgin Yacht Design Team created the yacht to reflect a peaceful brightness in living areas: "We tried to imagine even the tiniest details through the look of a kaleidoscope. It was a challenging process to create luminous effect while deciding on proportion of each material."
Lilium evokes the beautiful white flower of the same name, as she has light interior colors that highlight the modern lines of the yacht. She has slight differences than her sistership ex. Nerissa. Besides having bright colors in the living areas, Lilium's main difference from her sistership is her galley. The layout changed in order to make it easy for the crew to move around without interfering with the guests. There is now a pantry located between the galley and the living room.
The color palette of the interior is white with touches of gold and brass. Soft lighting enhances the relaxed atmosphere of the interior. The staircase reflects the daylight from the above Jacuzzi, while the light fixtures, designed by Bilgin Design Team were inspired by nature.
Lilium is powered by twin 1,475hp MTU 12V2000 M72 diesel engines and reaches a top speed of 16 knots and a maximum range in excess of 4,000 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 12 knots.
Bilgin Yachts will attend the Cannes and Monaco boat shows together with IYC Luxury Yacht Sales & Charter.
