De­liv­ered as Thames III in 1961 as an ocean-go­ing tug, she re­mained in ser­vice un­til 1979, says Alex Busher at Ed­mis­ton, who has the CA. Con­verted to a lux­ury yacht spec and up­graded in 1994 and 2000 by her Amer­i­can fam­ily own­ers, Itasca has tra­versed the North­west Pas­sage and gir­dled the globe three times, clock­ing up to 30,000nm in a year. Her ship-like econ­omy is driven by ei­ther of her two MANS, but never both, on a sin­gle shaft to de­liver 13,000nm at 11.5 knots. Cay­man flagged, and with an icecheat­ing steel hull, this 53.6-me­tre is heli-ca­pa­ble and can han­dle ten guests and 12 crew. Ly­ing Palm Beach, $16.95 mil­lion will se­cure. Con­tact: Ed­mis­ton, Monaco. Tel: +377 93 30 54 44. www.ed­mis­
