Last Saturday the renowned super yacht builders Feadship launched a groundbreaking super yacht. In fact, Feadship launched the world’s largest hybrid yacht – Savannah.
In a James Bond-themed launch ceremony at the Feadship yard in Aalsmeer (Netherlands) this weekend, Feadship launched the 83.50-metre Savannah. Besides being world’s largest hybrid yacht, the super yacht Savannah is the first to be entirely metallic painted with the exception of the mast domes.
The incredible Sea Foam metallic green exterior colour scheme in was created by a human machine of several dozen craftsmen, who spent many weekends in a climate-controlled tent to create what is the world’s largest metallic-painted object. They used special mixing machines and electrically-charged spray guns to ensure all the metallic flakes were in perfect order and, not to mention, an additional ground-breaking achievement on a pure pedigree yacht.
Due to privacy agreements the interior remains a mystery; however Feadship has shared a few words on this equally amazing artifice.
“Savannah has an ‘underwater lounge’ where guests can watch the fish outside or turn around and observe the fun and games in the nine-metre swimming pool. The room, which also converts into a cinema, is another first for a super yacht and features especially thick glass due to its position in the hull.”
To understand the dimension of this super yacht, the best way to do it is by reading the words of Ted McCumber, captain of Savannah, the world’s largest hybrid yacht.
“The possibility to choose between diesel, diesel-electric or fully electric is truly exceptional. Only Feadship engineering and the rich experience of this yard could have successfully concluded a project of such scope and vision”
