A General Description of Motor Yacht SAVARONA
This motor yacht SAVARONA is a 136 metre 446 (foot) major steel vessel which was crafted by Blohm + Voss Shipyards & Services and concieved by Gibbs & Cox and Diana Yacht Design (Engineering). Accommodating 34 guests and 54 crew, motor yacht SAVARONA was previously called Savarona Iii; Gunes Dil. This gracious boat was envisaged by naval architects Gibbs & Cox and Diana Yacht Design (Engineering). Donald Starkey Designs undertook the interior design.
Savarona was named after a long-necked black-feathered African swan living in the Indian Ocean. M/Y SAVARONA was built in 1931 and at that time was the world’s longest and largest yacht with a length of 446 feet. She was built for American heiress Emily Roebling Cadwallader, granddaughter of John A. Roebling, engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge. SAVARONA travellied the world however shyed away from American ports because of the potentially confiscatory import duties. This was reportedly the reason the owner decided to sell the yacht to the Turkish Government in 1938.The yacht was bought as a gift for an ailing leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who spent just six weeks on the yacht before passing away. World War II passed and the yacht remained unused till 1951 at Kanlica Bay on the Bosporus before getting converted to training ship GUNES DIL. In 1979, there was a devastating fire at the Turkish Naval Academy leaving the yacht abandoned for almost ten years. Then in 1989 Turkish businessman Kahraman Sadikoglu, purchased the yacht and completely refurbished her at Tuzla Shipyards near Istanbul. The renovation also included the substitution of the old steam turbine engines with modern diesel engines. Savarona is now based in the Mediterranean where she serves as an impressive charter yacht for the rich and famous. One of the yachts outstanding features is her 282 foot long grand staircase that connects the yacht’s decks internally. She boasts an authentic marble Turkish bath, a huge swimming pool, two royal Spa Pools, two separate saunas and steam bath rooms, a movie theater, a library and a hi-tech gym to name a few of her features.
