The N.S. Savannah, the world's first nuclear-powered cargo-passenger ship, is the namesake of the famous SS SAVANNAH, the first steam-ship to cross the Atlantic ocean, in 1819. Home port of the 22,000 ton vessel, is Savannah, Georgia. She is 5951/2 feet long, has a normal cruising speed of 20 knots, carries 60 passengers, a crew of 110 and about 10,000 tons of dry cargo and cost some $47,000,000. The N.S. SAVANNAH, a joint project of the Atomic Energy Commission and the Maritime Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce, in her voyages to world ports symbolizes America's peaceful use of the mighty atom.
