Written by a seaman through and through whose service include four years of sea duty in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Sequoia Presidential Yacht is the amazing portrait of the Sequoia, a 104-foot yacht that has served eight sitting American presidents. Extensively researched an illustrated throughout with rare black-and-white and color photographs, Sequoia Presidential Yacht is in many ways a biography–but a biography of a sturdy and faithful vessel rather than a person. Especially recommended for yacht history and presidential trivia buffs.
