Honey Fitz

I didn't realize until I saw the pictures on computer, but saw the Honey Fitz under power coming out of Adams Creek in the Neuse River in NC. This was JFK's presidential yacht which was later transferred to Nixon before private ownership bought it. A beautiful boat. Enjoy.

She's on a fundraising tour
The Honey Fitz is back in business | www.palmbeachpost.com

I used to think this was the same yacht as the Sequoia, but did a little digging and find it's not. See pp 3 in this link

Here is my newest listing, but no mention of the price as no ads from brokers are allowed. It is a 1939 90' Mathis Trumpy that is USCG certified for 65 passengers.

Tucker-did that boat used to be in Baltimore Harbor? When we lived in DC some 15 years ago, there was a very similar Trumpy that did harbor cruises. A truly beautiful boat!

The boat in Baltimore was most likely “Columba” a 110 foot trumpy.
