N.S. Savannah

M&O took a picture of the N.S. Savannah while at an adjacent pier in Canton Marine Terminal, Baltimore on a recent survey:



N.S. Savannah is the first nuclear-powered merchant ship ever built (the Soviet ice-breaker N.S. Lenin was the first nuclear-powered civil ship).  She was launched in 1959, and was built at a total cost of $46.9 million - $28.3 of that consisted of the cost of the nuclear reactor and fuel core.


The N.S. Savannah has been moored at Canton Marine Terminal since 2008.
