History: The USS Sequoia President Yacht started life in 1925 at the hands of John Trumpy. Since then she has served more than nine US Presidents and countless distinguished visitors. Congress designated the Sequoia a National Historic Landmark and is one of most important pieces of Americana in private hands and is one of the most famous vessels in America. In 1994 Chelsea Clock Company was commissioned to make a commemorative clock and matching barometer to celebrate the USS Sequoia.
