1961 J & K Smit ITASCA

$9,951,179.00

Year:
1961
Length:
54m
Engine/Fuel Type:
Twin / diesel
Located In:
Palm Beach, FL
Hull Material:
Steel
YW#:
1650-2891892
Current Price:
US$ 9,950,000 (£ 7,234,259) 
Not for sale to US residents while in US waters

Built by J and K Smits Scheepswerven in Holland as an ocean going salvage tug, formerly Thames III, she is one of three built with only ITASCA still in existence

ITASCA was in commercial service until 1979 before being converted to a yacht where she has since earned her place in exploration yachting history having circumnavigated the world three times including one of the first yachts to pass through the North West Passage when owned by the former US Secretary of the Treasury, William E. Simon. A solid, incredibly well engineered yacht with excellent proportions.  In 12 months she has conquered the oceans travelling 30,000 nautical miles! 

With a vast range of 13,000 nautical miles powered by the option of two MAN’s to a single screw, she has excellent back up and ship like economy operation.  ITASCA’s conversion has been very tastefully completed over the years with each owner adding and improving her to what she is today.  She is a country home on the water with large windows and all amenities, including large gym and sauna.

Thoroughly well maintained, ITASCA is fully in class, Lloyds +100 A1 LMC and Charter compliant although she has only been enjoyed privately.  Her hull is structurally reinforced and equipped to Lloyds highest standards for her encounters with polar ice too.

There are extensive tenders and toys, including 2 Protector ribs, Zodiac craft and more.  Her highlight though is her helicopter pad where there is also the benefit of a re-fuelling system which allows her Eurocopter BC130 B4 helicopter (not included in the sales price) to give her un-rivaled experience and view of the world.

For the people who really want an adventure and to explore our amazing planet, ITASCA has done it and will do it again in the upmost discreet style which cannot be matched!
