Inspired by the J Boats of the 1930s, Pedrick Design naval architecture, with John Munford interior design and Concordia Yachts this team built an exceptional sloop. Some will refer to her as a classic, others as a modern classic or a Spirit of Tradition sloop. Regardless of labels SAVANNAH is an exceptional sailing yacht.

As her designer David Pedrick writes; "Below the waterline, Savannah has an efficient cruising hullform, deep Whale-Tail fin keel, and separate rudder. Engineered to last more than a century, her construction uses carbon fiber, Kevlar and PVC foam to be relatively lightweight yet extremely robust. Carrying a tall, fractional rig, also in carbon-fiber, Savannah's thrilling performance under sail has made her a winning "spirit of tradition" racer."
