The 270-foot M/Y Savannah is in a class of its own when it comes to superyachts. If Tesla were to make a Yacht, this would be it, and Elon Musk would definitely be the one owning it. M/Y Savannah is as sleek as a Tesla Model S, as elegant as a Bentley Mulsanne, and as striking as a Aston Martin Vanquish. She was built in 2015 by Feadship in the Netherlands at a cost of about €100 million and she boasts an impressive list of firsts for superyachts. Not only is she the world’s first hybrid superyacht, but she is also the world’s largest metallic painted object. Oh, and her 30-foot infinity pool on her aft, paired with the private beach club makes her the perfect yacht to cruise into the start of summer. That is if you can pay the €1 million per week charter price.
The silhouette of the M/Y Savannah is a statement itself. Designed by both Feadship and CG Design, the striking silver hull is made of steel and has an aluminum superstructure, a rarity for superyachts. She is powered by a Wärtsilä engine that is powered by both diesel generators and electric engines. This means she can run on either diesel-only power, a hybrid of diesel and electricity, or on pure electricity. This is thanks to a 1-million-watt battery bank that is installed on this stunning superyacht. Thanks to the 170,000-liter fuel tanks she can practically cruise between any two ports in the world with no issue.
Inside, the M/Y Savannah is even more stunning than she is outside. While many superyacht owners decide to decorate their interiors with a lot of gold and crass materials, the owner of the M/Y Savannah hired CG Design to make a beautiful modern and minimalist interior. The open-concept lounge on the main deck has a ceiling that lights up like the stars at night, similar to what you can find on a Rolls-Royce Phantom. The interior is covered in a beautifully dark-tinted rosewood reminiscent of a Scandinavian home, and the piece de resistance inside is a spiral stair case made of mass rosewood. As you enter the living quarters section you pass two walls that are covered in screens that play abstract art videos like color dissolving in water, a truly stunning feature unique to this superyacht. M/Y Savannah’s owner is a true art lover and it can practically be considered a modern art gallery on high seas.
The M/Y Savannah can sleep 12 VIP guests in 6 suites, which includes the master suite and a VIP stateroom. She is capable of carrying up to 24 crew onboard to ensure that the guests are pampered and that every need is catered for. Every room features custom furniture designed just for the M/Y Savannah. One of the most incredible rooms onboard is the Nemo Lounge, one of the first of its kind. It is an underwater lounge built into the hull of the superyacht. This means that guests can sip on champagne while having a direct view into both above the water and underwater thanks to a large pane of glass that exposes the beauty of the oceans to the interior.
However, where guests really want to be is at the aft of the deck where that incredible 30-foot infinity pool is, which is probably one of the most beautiful swimming pools on any yacht. Coupled with a full beach club on the aft of the yacht, the M/Y Savannah was made to break the rules in style.
If you want to charter the M/Y Savannah head over to Edmiston to check her out, but be ready to break out your check book as she does not come cheap. However, if there is one superyacht that is perfect to get the summer season started, it would be the M/Y Savannah as she is truly second to none in the world of Superyacht firsts.
