I always wanted number 4 but when I compare no 4 with the existing ones(first picture sercan has put here) then even no 4 looks simple and ugly! They should copy the old ones 1:1 with new engines and technology.

old one


no 4


Still my vote goes to no 4 since it's the closest decission to the old ones.

I guess people outside Turkey/Istanbul don't know what these boats mean for us! You spend your day in a 15 mil. messy, loud, overcrowded city with nonstop rushhour but when you take one of these boats buy a glass of tea and a "simit" breath in the fresh bosphorus air and see all Istanbul (historic peninsula, skyscrapers, bridges, the sunset etc.. in one frame) then you forget everything for 20 minutes.

putting number 8 to these scenes is nothing more then a murder for a city like istanbul.

people has to be sensitive and conscious about their city and it's values.


I go for number 4.

IMO even the old ones are too modern and don't fit into the bosphorus scene

I agree with you! There is something magical about the beautiful old buildings overlooking the Bosphorus with an old-fashioned ferry in the background.

it is only one question of habit, we pass by the same here in Lisbon when they had buy new ferry's for 3 of the 5 lines and they dont fit with the old city scene, look the ferry they buy to one of the lines in Lisbon (i use this one all days):
