Edmiston at the Newport International Boat Show

23rd September 2016

There are explorer yachts by name and there are explorer yachts by nature. If you want an example of a real, circumnavigated-the-globe-three-times, sailed-the-North-West-Passage, 13,000 nautical-mile-range explorer yacht then ITASCA is it.

Perfectly positioned against the backdrop of the historic Newport Harbour, this classically styled yacht offers incredible capability and quality, being equipped to Lloyds’ highest standards. A former commercial vessel, her yacht conversion has been immaculately carried out to full superyacht standards across five cabins, with amenities including a large gym and sauna. An extensive on-deck specification is capped by a helicopter pad including a refuelling system for unrivalled access to the skies as well as the sea.

Previously owned by US Secretary to the Treasury, William E Simon, ITASCA is a yacht for those who seek adventure and appreciate nautical heritage. 

For more information on ITASCA or to arrange a viewing please contact Alex Busher ab@edmiston.com.

ITASCA will also be attending the 2016 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, 3rd – 7th November.
