A massive super yacht arrived in SoWal yesterday and has created quite a buzz. The 274-foot "Savannah" cost $100 million and is the ultimate in luxury and modern technology.
From the builder's website:
The 83.50-metre (273?11?) Savannah is the first hybrid motoryacht. She is the first superyacht to feature an eco-friendly blend of single diesel engine, three gensets, batteries, propeller, azimuting thruster and a streamlined hull shape. Offering fuel economies of thirty per cent, the pioneering electro-mechanical propulsion platform marries Feadship?s past experience and forward thinking approach within a pure custom creation. Further innovation comes in the form of a floating superstructure, an underwater lounge, the ?open? aft deck areas, and much more besides. At the 2016 ShowBoats Design Awards, Savannah won no less than three prestigious awards: for Exterior Design & Styling, Interior Layout & Design and Holistic Design. Savannah became Motor Yacht of the Year during the 2016 World Superyacht Awards.
