Welcome to the official website of the N/S Savannah Association, Inc. We are dedicated to preserving and protecting the N.S. Savannah, a non-functional one-of-a-kind nuclear cargo/passenger ship. The Savannah is presently located in the Port of Baltimore, Maryland, under a long-term layberth contract with Canton Marine Terminals.
New BBC Article about "The Ship That Totally Failed to Change the World"
BBC contacted us out of the blue with the notion to do a brief piece sort of talking about the 50th anniversary of the N.S. Savannah's visit to the UK specifically and the ship itself, as well as nuclear powered merchant ships generally. This was a BBC initiative – we had nothing to do with its genesis. Instead, it was important to provide as much factual information as possible and try to steer the story to the truth, which we believe came off as well as can be expected. The press in the UK has not been anything but anti-nuclear for years; seeing a balanced piece like this is actually refreshing. Even if the headline is a thumper.
