Built by J and K Smits Scheepswerven in The Netherlands as an ocean-going salvage tug, formerly THAMES III, she is one of three sisterships 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 being one of the first yachts to pass through the Northwest Passage when owned by the former US Secretary of the Treasury, William E Simon.
