SAVANNAH – the ultimate hybrid luxury charter yacht
Created to break the mold in every way, from engineering to interior design, luxury charter yacht SAVANNAH is considered one of the first true hybrid superyachts, with green principles and peerless design, now available for a one-of-a-kind charter in the Mediterranean in the summer and Caribbean in the winter.
At 83.5m (274ft) SAVANNAH was built by Dutch yard, Feadship and is one of the marque's most awarded motor yachts. SAVANNAH boasts an eco-friendly blend of single diesel engine, three gensets, batteries, propeller, azimuting thruster and a streamlined, low resistance hull shape, resulting in efficiencies of 30 percent.
This is just part of the technical innovation that seized the spotlight at the world's most prestigious award ceremonies, claiming a clean sweep in 2016 with the ISS Award for Best power boat, Show Boats Design Awards for 'best exterior' and 'best interior' as well as the 'holistic award', the Neptune prize for the World Superyacht Award in her category and the World Superyacht 'Motoryacht of the Year' award.
SAVANNAH'S unmistakable profile, including its knife-edged vertical bow and so-called "floating superstructure," is a head-turner anywhere she travels.
Built by a team of thousands of specialists and taking one million man hours to complete, and launched in 2015 SAVANNAH has attained the status of post-modern icon.
SAVANNAH is the largest object to be painted in metallic finish – Sea Foam green to be precise. Launched in 2015, with exterior design from De Voogt Naval Architects and Cristina Gherardi of CG Design, SAVANNAH boasts a variety of spaces for wellness, physical exercise and entertainment, including an underwater lounge (Nemo Room) so guests can view the wonders beneath the sea, a bow observation lounge, a double-volume video wall installation, a wellness area, exercise room and library.
Accommodation comprises the palatial Master suite, a VIP stateroom with balcony, and four large guest staterooms for up to 12 guests. There are spacious crew quarters for as many as 26 crew to ensure every request and requirement during your charter experience aboard SAVANNAH is totally fulfilled.
The main deck and owner's deck aft have been designed as single giant open inside/outside spaces, enclosed by weathertight sliding doors. When the sides of the main lounge open, the entire space from the swimming pool to the saloon serves as an alfresco experience zone. "The owner of SAVANNAH loves to be at one with the water," said the owner's project manager and now Captain of SAVANNAH, Ted McCumber. "This phenomenal design allows him to run from the main saloon and dive straight into the sea."
Likewise, her fortunate luxury charter guests will revel in the sublime wellness features of this incredible charter yacht.
One of the many structural highlights is an 'underwater lounge' known as the "Nemo Room" on the port side where guests can relax and observe marinelife below, or turn around and observe the fun and games in the nine-metre swimming pool that features a colourful glass mosaic by British artist Cecily Brown. The room also converts into a cinema – yet another first for a superyacht – and features especially formulated glass due to its location in the hull.
Designer, Cristina Gherardi, former architectural designer with Christian Dior, was responsible for the superlative exterior and interiors of SAVANNAH – a four-year project for her firm – which achieved a genuine and cohesive connection between interior and exterior ideal for a luxury yacht charter.
"When we came on board the project we were looking at all of the projects that were going on and at one point we said 'Stop! Let's not look at anything and do something different'."
Gherardi is proud of the myriad special features that have never been done before, including what she refers to as "a secret room in the bow".
"This gives you the possibility when you're navigating, if you have a strong stomach, to be amongst the waves."
Interior styling is lustrous, lavish and deftly crafted to be at once simple and ornate.
Charter guests onboard SAVANNAH enjoy the profusion of luxury finishes and details across her four decks, drawing on the clean lines, ellipses and metallic finishes of the Art Deco and Futurist movements. The six suites are connected by a dramatic rosewood spiral staircase, while dark rosewood floors provide continuity throughout, complemented by exquisite furniture, atmospheric dimensions and breathtaking glazing for panoramic views from every room.
There's a private sun deck with DJ booth and barbeque, a gym, spa, Hammam with onboard beauty therapist and masseuse, an elevator, as well as an extensive modern art collection.
Befitting this incomparable vessel, her arsenal of tenders and toys will please and appease the desires of every charter guest. There's a 9.5m Limousine Tender, 9.5m Sport Tender and 6m Jet RIB Tender. Charter guests can frolic and explore all day with the array of watertoys such as two Yamaha Stand-up Jet Skis, two Seadoo Spark Jet Skis, Seadoo Wake Waverunner, four Seabobs, two Laser Sail Boats, kayaks, scuba gear, flyboard, standup paddleboards, snorkeling gear, waterskis, inflatable tow toys, a jumbo slide and trampoline, as well as mountain bikes for onshore escapades.
In the world of superyachts available for charter, SAVANNAH is among intimate company, a rare handful of superyachts that are unparalleled platforms for exceeding your every charter fantasy.
