Savannah completes clean sweep of industry awards ISS Awards 2016
Feadship Savannah has won the International Superyacht Society award for Best Power 65m+, giving this 83.50-metre custom motoryacht a clean sweep of all the top superyacht industry awards. This superb achievement is a testimony to the visionary owner and his partnership with Feadship and CGDesign in creating the world’s first hybrid motor-megayacht.
The ‘Best Power 65m+’ prize was awarded to Savannah and Feadship at the 26th edition of ISS’s Awards Gala in Fort Lauderdale. The victory was part of an excellent week for the yacht, which was the undoubted queen of the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. Huge crowds gathered to gaze at her Sea Foam green coating (the largest object ever given a metallic paint livery) and awesome floating superstructure. And there were gasps of admiration too from the guests invited onboard to see Savannah’s extraordinary interior, including her famous semi-submerged Nemo room.
The week in Fort Lauderdale topped off a great year for Savannah, which had previously taken home prestigious Show Boats Design Awards for ‘best exterior’ and ‘best interior’ as well as the ‘holistic award’. Also in the trophy cabinet is the Neptune prize for the World Superyacht Award in her category and, of course, the World Superyacht ‘Motoryacht of the Year’ award.
“We are delighted that Savannah has received such a remarkable degree of praise for our industry peers,” comments Henk de Vries. “Over a thousand specialists were involved in her creation and the phenomenal final result proves that Feadship’s willingness to venture into uncharted waters with adventurous owners always pays dividends. With her hybrid propulsion system offering fuel savings of up to 30%, Savannah is a winner in every respect.”
