GIAOLA-LU, the new Bilgin 155 near delivery

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he countdown has begun for the delivery of GIAOLA-LU, as the works on her interior is moving on at full speed at Bilgin Yachts Shipyard. This is what the shipyard stated in a note sent this morning. The works on the interiors of the new BILGIN 155, the 46.8 meter motor yacht named GIAOLA-LU by her owner, are moving on at full speed.

Bilgin Yachts Shipyard interior team is doing the last touches on her H2 designed interior, such as assembly on movable furniture, accessories, lamps, wall lights and decorative details. She will hoped to be delivered to her Mexican owner by the end of this month.

Speaking of her interior, her styling concept was to be ‘contemporary, cosy and natural’ from the beginning of the project. This was the first fully custom superyacht for the client and H2 were given great freedom to develop their ‘dream yacht’.

Many elements were inspired by Scandinavian and high end residential detailing in order to create a homely yet modern feel. The client was particular with the veneer selection to ensure the feeling of warmth was continuous and synonymous throughout. Satin walnut, satin wedge and matt olive wood veneers combined with nubuck, shagreen and natural leathers were the materials used at the interior. Fabrics and leathers were sourced from the UK at the specification of H2 and a variety of stones featuring emperador dark, white onyx, cream travertine and Eramosa were supplied within Turkey.

“The layout of spaces was according to indoor/outdoor family living and accommodating a large number of guests over 5 lower deck guest cabins and 1 main deck owner suite” says Tam Elder, Project Director at H2. According to him this results in the large main deck lounge, a combined galley pantry for use of the owner and another large lounge on bridge deck. Elder states that the client was not particular about following a ‘traditional’ layout and the result is a very usable superyacht.
