The world’s first hybrid superyacht completes sea trials

In February, news surfaced of the launch of Feadship’s 83.50m superyacht, Savannah, at the Dutch shipyard in Aalsmeer, Netherlands.

Just over a month later, the shipyard has now released photographs of the vessel undertaking her sea trials, which took place over a seven-day period in the North Sea earlier this month. 

With a beam of 12.5 metres and a draft of 3.95 metres, Savannah is the world’s first hybrid superyacht. Designed by De Voogt Naval Architects in cooperation with CG Design, she features an eco-friendly blend of single diesel engines, three gensets, batteries, propellers, azimuting thrusters and a streamlined hull shape.

She accommodates up to 12 guests on board with room for a crew of up to 22. Among her most notable features is a large inside/outside space between the aft owner and main deck areas, a nine-metre swimming pool and a unique underwater lounge at port side. She is also the first superyacht to be entirely metallic-painted in bespoke Sea Foam metallic green paint.

Powered by one Wärtsilä 9L20C 2,415hp engine, she offers fuel economies of up to 30 percent making her a demonstration of the cost-effective, clean mode of propulsion that can be achieved within an entirely bespoke superyacht.

A video of the sea trials, which took place on 18th March 2015 can be viewed here in a video by Kees Torn.
