In 1974 an ice strengthened 73 metres rescue tug GIGANT was built by IHC Vershure, Amsterdam at the Netherlands to support the Warsaw Pact Fishing Fleet. Back in 2006 she was converted at the same shipyard as an expedition yacht flying the Panama (PAN) flag. 

Below are images of the vessel entering Valletta shortly after her conversion back to 28th June , 2006
