    Another look at "Savannah"dropping the pilots and then being towed to across from the Bahia Mar.

    Love Savannah! The underwater lounge thing she has is a great addition.

    To think that this type of semi-underwater lounge was a very unique feature for "Savannah" then since her completion we had a few yachts completing with semi-underwater or fully-underwater lounges. S/Y "A" and "Elandess" come to mind.

    Actually Octopus was one of the first Megayachts with a glassed bottom observation lounge in the double bottom of the hull.

    A underwater observation room is a dramatic addition to any ship. It drives the certifying body crazy but if certified, guests and scientists love that addition. If combined with Subs and ROVs, a terrific thing to have.

    Yes, I think I remember seeing a port hole in the floor with bar stools around it.

    Wow! Amazing and I didn't know that she had this feature, just goes to show how she was way ahead of her time and what a great yacht she is even now so many years later.

    I do not want to hijack the Savannah thread but in my opinion, Octopus is still the most impressive Megayacht on the seven seas. The amount of features build into this great yacht, the quality of built and the great shape she still is in, make her IMHO one of the most outstanding large yachts in Megayacht history.

    The only problem, why she does not sell, is her price tag. More than 100 mio $ more that Mr. Allen paid for her in 2003. I am afraid, this great vessel will be fading away at its mooring in Malaga, Spain, without a significant price reduction.

    And do not forget, Octopus has average operating costs of several 100.000,- $ per week. And this does not include the fuel for traveling. Only Rising Sun (4 x MTU 20V8000 :)) would beat her fuel bill, when given the spurs.

    I had a complete tour on her, when she was in dry dock at B&V in Hamburg several years ago. Really amazing. I wish, I would be allowed to show more pictures of her internal spaces.

    Just one more picture of Octopus while in dry dock here in Hamburg. You can see the switched on light in the under water observation room illuminating the dock below. Here You can really see how deep the double and heated window is below the waterline.

    The visualization of the semi-underwater beachclub room versus the reality. But seriously this room is surrounded by water on two sides, partially by sea water on the bottom side and then when the pool is full, by water above.

    "Savannah" is such a conflicting design. So many good elements involved in the design but then all thrown off-balance...literally...by her top-heavy design. Here she is coming in to Gibraltar.
