The USS Potomac offers a unique opportunity to host an event in historical style. This incredible vessel was once a US Coast Guard Cutter that was lovingly converted into a family and business yacht by president Roosevelt. Many distinguished characters over the years enjoyed excursions on board this famous yacht. The USS Potomac was once owned in her later years by heart throb Elvis Presley. This yacht is perfect for Nautical Weddings and very special occasions.

 

Cruise in style on this historical yacht. One of the most unique vessels in our fleet.

 

*January/February 1964 
Elvis purchases the Potomac, former presidential yacht of Franklin Roosevelt, for $55,000 on January 30. He intends to donate it to the March of Dimes for use as a national shrine (FDR suffered from polio, the main disease fought by the March of Dimes). Costs of maintaining the yacht would be prohibitive, so the March of Dimes declines the gift. Elvis attempts to give it to the 7th Coast Guard District Auxiliary in Miami, which also doesn’t work out. Finally, on February 13, he presents the yacht as a gift to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis for them to use to raise funds as they see fit. The ceremony takes place in Long Beach, California, on February 14, with actor and hospital founder, Danny Thomas, accepting. 

This Yacht is available for private charter on a limited basis. Please call us for details.
