The DOT’s Maritime Administration has just issued a notice of availability in the Federal Register for the Nuclear Ship Savannah, currently in Baltimore. The terms of transferal are flexible and negotiable; any maritime preservation facility with adequate wharfage to accommodate Savannah should seriously consider this unique opportunity.

The notice includes two meetings for interested parties. The first will take place on Saturday, November 18th (virtual and in-person on the ship) and will allow interested parties the opportunity to ask questions about the ship. A notice about that meeting will be published at the end of the week. A site visit will also be held Saturday and Sunday, December 16 & 17. We’ll provide you with links to those meetings as well when they are posted.
CAMM Member Paul Johnston of the Smithsonian sits on the Decommissioning Committee for this vessel and is happy to answer any questions or direct follow-up to the appropriate party.
