USS Potomac

One of two US Presidential yachts that still survives to this day, USS Potomac was used by Franklin D. Roosevelt as his floating base from 1936-1945. Famous guests who FDR hosted aboard this 50 metre former US Coast Guard vessel included royals at sea King George VI of the United Kingdom and Crown Princess Märtha of Norway.
