Fourth of July on the Sequoia

Fourth of July on the Sequoia

We had great evening abroad the Sequoia where the Florida House hosted our Fourth of July party. USS Sequoia is a former United States presidential yacht used from Herbert Hoover to Jimmy Carter, who had it sold in 1977 . Today the ship is privately owned. The yacht is 104 feet long, with a wooden hull, and was designed by John Trumpy Sr., a well-known shipbuilder. It includes a presidential stateroom, guest bedrooms, a galley and dining room, and was at one time retrofitted with an elevator for Franklin D. Roosevelt. In 1987 the ship was designated a National Historic Landmark.
