The Bilgin shipyard is run today by Bilgins own son Ismail, nephew Mehmet, and Yildirim Bilgin who joined the firm and is the Sales and relation Manager of the shipyard. The Bilgin shipyard is now producing the Tee-Dje superyacht.
The Bilgin 123 model motor yacht Tee-Dje is the shipyards latest design and incorporates a wide range of the latest technologies in comfort, performance, and style. The shipyards in-house design team designed the exterior of Tee-Dje super yacht, while the British firm H2 Yacht Design handled the interior and Septemar Yacht Furniture did the furnishings. The attention to detail is obvious from bow to stern, and one look at this remarkable watercraft and you know that it is something special.

The 123 model Tee-Dje is constructed using cold moulded technology, and finished up with West Epoxy Fibre, while Awlgrip is used to complete the paint system. Everything about the design of the Tee-Dje screams performance, from the ultra sleek hull design to the aerodynamically constructed flying bridge all built using the cold moulded technology mentioned additional speed and performance due to the design is most certainly achievable. There is nothing at all about this hull design that even remotely reminds you of the motor yachts of yesteryear, so welcome to the 21st century.

These excellent engines allow for 20 knots of maximum speed with a cruising speed of 17 knots, and while this is not the fasted superyacht around it certainly can get from point a to point b quicker than most yachts on the water today.
