We found this slender 97′ steel superbarge ideal for cruising canals and rivers in luxury. Built in 2004, Savvy was designed to navigate narrow and shallow water and pass low bridges prevalent throughout Europe’s interior waterways. The build was conducted by Dutch superyacht yard Hakvoort and British interior designer H2Design.
Savvy’s owner is the famed British entrepreneur Peter de Savary and founder of St. James Club in London, Paris, NY and LA. His passion for boating is best demonstrated by leading the British team in the 1983 America’s Cup and once owning Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor’s 165 foot KALIZMA.
Savvy has had over $1.8M invested in her by the current and former owner and has a Lloyd’s 100A1 classification. Inside are spacious living, dining and full galley perfect for entertaining or relaxing.
Under deck sleeps up to 6 with a full-width owner’s stateroom, a twin-bed cabin, and a study with a single bed that extends to a double.
She is 15 feet wide and runs 4 feet deep. Her diesel hybrid motor gives her a 750 mile distance at 6-8 mph. The dual generators are quiet when running so you can take in the scenery in peace while enjoying a glass of champagne pool-side on deck or taking a dip to stay cool during your journeys.
Savvy is listed around $2.7M.
