Presidential yacht Sequoia immortalized

Florida artist Robert Webber - a staple at Florida boat shows - has announced the availability of USS Sequoia, his latest release in a series of fine art prints devoted to boats from an earlier era.

This edition will be added to "Great American Yacht Classics," a documentary series portraying distinguished traditional yachts that have managed to survive from America's Golden Age of Yachting.

Sequoia II was launched in 1926 and in 1933 was commissioned the USS Sequoia.  This stately 104-foot Trumpy yacht served eight U.S. presidents including Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford. President Carter sold the yacht in 1977.

The canvas painting will debut during the Palm Beach Boat Show, March 24-27.

The artist will be in Booth 639 in the main air-conditioned tent along the Flagler Drive waterfront. Limited edition signed/numbered prints will be sold in various sizes.
