The Savarona was built for Mrs. Emily Roebling Cadwallader, granddaughter of John Roebling, 

the engineer who built the Brooklyn Bridge. 



Mrs. Cadwallader spent part of her considerable fortune building three successively larger yachts, 

each named Savarona after a long-necked black-feathered African swan. 


Our Savarona, the third, cost $4 million to build at the Blohm&Voss shipyards in Hamburg in 1931. 


The Savarona sailed Atlantic, Mediterranean and South African waters, but Mrs. Cadwallader could not take her to the United States of America because of potentially confiscatory import duties. 
She decided to sell the yacht, and in 1938, the Savarona was bought for $1 million by the Turkish Government.


The chain of events leading to this purchase is amusing. In 1936, King Edward VII visited Istanbul 

and was the guest of Mustafa Kernal Atatürk on the than state yacht, the Ertugrul. 
Soot from the funnel so dirtied His Majesty's white flannels that Atatürk sent Ertugrul to be scrabbed 

and ordered a search for a new presidential yacht. 

The Turkish flag was hoisted on the Savarona in Southampton in March 1938.
The yacht arrived in Istanbul two months later, after some brief refurbishment, but sadly, 

Atatürk was terminally ill. 

During the six weeks that he spent on the Savarona, cabinet meetings were held on board. 



Atatürk at last was taken by stretcher from the yacht to Dolmabahçe Palace, where he died 

on November 10, 1938.


The Savarona did not sail again until after World War II, when the Turkish Navy started to use her 

as a training ship. 
In 1979, a raging fire destroyed the once beautiful vessel, and she remained unused until 1989, 

when it was decided to scrab her. 
A rich business man however, obtained a last minute stay of execution, leased the yacht for 49 years, and began the arduous task of refurbishing the Savarona to more than her former glory.

425 men worked for almost three years to refit the yacht, whose interior design was done 

by Donald Starkey. 

Today, the Savarona once again is sailing the waters of the world, bringing an experience 

of elegance and luxury to those who are so privileged as to be her passengers.




The M/Y Savarona is the the 4th largest private yacht in the world with a length of 446 feet.

17 spacious suites each over 485 ft². 


Her 47360 ft² of covered and 38 feet of open space, offer a wide and spacious living area and state 

of the art recreational facilities. 


The services on board outclass by far those of the finest 5 star hotels and cruise vessels. 


The "Hamam" is a traditional Turkish bath, which was used by the Sultan during the period 

of the Ottoman Empire. 



The Savarona "Hamam" is one of the most majestic of its size ever built, and took twelve craftsmen 

one year to create from raw marble.Over 65 tonnes of marble was used in the construction 

of the "Hamam" and authentic marble fountains and basins over 200 years old were brought from Anatolia (mainland Turkey), to compliment the beautiful marble workmanship performed by the master craftsmen. 


The "Hamam" covers an area of 80 m2 (860 square feet), and includes a separate steam room, sauna and changing rooms which are discretely concealed in the corner areas of the "Hamam" Turkish bath.
