Feadship's Hybrid Superyacht SAVANNAH is the First Private Yacht Featured on a Medal

From her innovative, environmentally-friendly technology to her distinctive ‘sea green’ exterior, the recently delivered luxury yacht SAVANNAH signals a new era for the shipyard and the industry. Such a landmark is the world’s first hybrid superyacht and the first metallic-painted Feadship, that SAVVANAH has achieved another ‘first,’ and will be the first private yacht to be displayed on a medal.

So highly regarded by followers of the yachting industry and Feadship enthusiasts is SAVANNAH, that is has been announced that she will be immortalised in silver.

The 83.5m (274ft) SAVANNAH will feature as part of Royal Dutch Mint collection of 12 medals entitled “Te Land, ter Zee en in de Lucht” (On Land, at Sea and in the Air) celebrating iconic ships, cars, planes and trains. Only 2,500 will be existence in the world, the motor yacht will feature alongside The Orient Express, Air Force One, The Titanic and the Aston Martin DB5 in the collection.

One of the most talked-about builds of recent times, it is hoped the Feadship and CG Design-styled SAVANNAH will instigate more widespread implementation of hybrid technology in superyacht building. The showpiece from the Dutch shipyard is powered by a single diesel engine, three gensets, batteries, propeller, azimuthing thruster and a streamlined hull. Her ‘eco-friendly’ technology was especially requested by her owner.

Speaking just before her delivery, Project Manager Ted McCumber said, “Feadship has leveraged on all the options available in the marine industry today to bring this hugely innovative system to completion.”

As well as offering a saving of approximately 30% compared to similar yachts on behalf of her electro-mechanical propulsion system, she can notably still reach an impressive top speed of 30 knots. Noise and vibration are additionally considerably reduced when chartering M/Y SAVANNAH when analysed alongside her counterparts.

The project began in 2011 amongst intense worldwide debate about the state of the environment, and was delivered to her owner last month in Norway.

She accommodates up to 12 guests in six spacious staterooms, in a layout consisting of a master suite, a VIP stateroom and four other guest cabins. She will travel with a large crew of 26 to ensure a relaxed charter experience.

Standout amenities include a 9-metre swimming pool and an ‘underwater lounge' area which can convert into a movie theatre.
