The World’s 100 Largest Yachts - 2002

1. Savarona
L: 408'0" Y: 1931/1992
When Savarona debuted a little more than 70 years ago, not only did her sheer size and elegance have people wide-eyed, but the fact that she achieved a top speed of 21 knots took them by surprise as well. Now repowered, her modern propulsion has her topping out at around 18 knots, and she’s no less impressive to see moving along on the horizon. Her upper-deck staterooms are named after famous bodies of water—Aegean Sea, Black Sea, Caspian Sea, among others—as are some of the lounges on what’s called her shelter deck. Most impressive, however, are the Hammam, which is an authentic Turkish bath with marble fountains and basins that are more than 200 years old, and the Atatürk suite, named for the first president of Turkey, who bought the yacht to use for government business and affairs in 1938. The furnishings reflect the elegance of the era and Atatürk’s taste, and various personal books and documents, including his passport, are on display. B: Blohm & Voss, Germany; N: Cox & Stevens; H: Steel; E: 2/3,500-hp Caterpillars


hey we still have the biggest!

But goverment didnt let us to do it.there were big groups protesting it and some tv channels were behind them.they said this boat has a serious role in turkish history..
At the end goverment give up selling her and decided to rent for 49 years to C.S. ( current user..)

Short story about the show. We were over by the BIG fishing boats and looking at the 57ish Bertram-best offshore boat in the world-right??? So one of my buddies sees that a screw for the bow rail is loose by about 1/2". Now this is a guy with a 2002 42 Fountain and he is ultra picky, but then I hear a woman in a Rinker jacket say the same thing. So lots of people are seeing this(it was right near the dock). Another guy with us goes over, grabs the sales guy, and real friendly-like says"hey there is a screw loose on the rail of this boat". The sales guy then gets pissed and makes some smart-a$$ comment like "Oh, so that's the only reason you're not going to buy it, right??" then says we must be mistaken-show me. When we do he comes back with the "buy" line again. They let the boat sit there the rest of the weekend with the screw sticking up-real attention to quality there.

I guess I should never be in charge of boats at a show-then Powerboat Reports wouldn't have "bloopers" to write about.
