According to the shipyard, with the advantage of working on sisterships of a new in-house developed series, the construction of the two first Bilgin 156s are being produced at a fast rate.

The shipyard has completed 55 percent of the Bilgin 156-I’s construction thus far, with basic equipment such as main engines and generators installed while outfitting of the technical equipment is ongoing. Furniture manufacturing is also nearing completion and some installation is under way.

The construction of the Bilgin 156-II has also reached 25 percent with her steel hull and aluminium structure completed. Her painting process has started with the first layers of fairing.
