ITASCA was originally built in 1961 as an ocean-going tug by J&K Smit of the Netherlands. Known as THAMES III she was in commercial service until 1979. The conversion to a private yacht was undertaken by new owners, an American family, who renamed her “ITASCA“. She is one of three built with only ITASCA still in existence. ITASCA’s conversion has been very tastefully completed over the years with each owner adding and improving her to make her what she is today. She is a country home on the water with large windows and all amenities, including large gym and sauna.
