Sometimes even solid-looking sales don’t go through. That’s apparently the case with this Feadship; we’d been told last year by a well-placed source that new owners had named her Ithaka, in honor of a Greek island, but she is still in the hands of Paul Allen (see Octopus, no. 2, and Tatoosh, no. 4) and still for sale, for $52.5 million.
Interested parties should note that there’s a nanny cabin adjacent to one of the guest staterooms (four of which are on the lower deck, with the VIP stateroom on the main deck, near the master suite) as well as a recording studio.
