Could this redesign save the USS Williamsburg?


Superyacht designers Green Yachts have developed a new look for the former US presidential yacht, the USS Williamsburg. The proposal is to transform the Williamsburg into a modern yacht while keeping intact her original charm and classic style.

The yacht’s vertical bow and lender stern cantilevered over the water are just two elements that the designers kept. Revised windows were created, to increase visibility, and a new colour scheme was developed to give the yacht a modern look.

The slender hull with streamlined water lines could be ideal for today’s hybrid propulsion systems, and the yacht has already proven to handle well in rough seas during her time as the presidential yacht.

For the time being, the yacht remains in dire condition, waiting for that one client to save her from the scrapyard.
