Turkey may buy Savarona

ADVERTISEMENT

The government of Turkey looked into buying in mid-September the yacht that was assigned to the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and turn it into a museum and venue to host foreign officials, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported.



The 446-foot (136m) M/Y Savarona, built by Blohm & Voss, launched in 1931. By the time it was commissioned, Ataturk could only use it a few months before becoming ill and later dying.
