Trumpy yacht charters available this spring on “BB”. Cruise the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in style. A recent restoration updates this 80’ Trumpy motor yacht. Built in 1947, her $4 million restoration, refit and update took 3 years to complete. Every detail shines, sparkles, and gleams. The sumptuous interior is as glamorous as the original. Thoughtful modern upgrades – such as stabilizers, sound system and televisions – are unobtrusive and contribute to guest comfort. Onboard BB you can take a step back in time. Here you will enjoy classic opulence complemented by modern amenities.
A classic yacht experience
When people think of a classic motor yacht probably the Trumpy is what they visualize. These yachts are the icon of American luxury yachting in the 20th Century. About 400 Trumpy yachts were built in the U.S. from the 1920s through the 1970s. USA Today ran a feature article on Trumpy entitled “Dreamboats“. “BB” provides an authentic luxury yacht charter experience.
On board BB guests will share the thrill of past Trumpy yacht owners. Howard Hughes, the Guggenheims, the Duponts, the Chrysler family and the Dodge family all owned Trumpys. Arguably the most famous Trumpy of all is the 104’ USS Sequoia, the Presidential Yacht of the United States. USS Sequoia served U.S. presidents from 1929–1977. She is now a National Historic Landmark.
Intracoastal Waterway Cruise itineraries
80’ Trumpy BB will be making a leisurely cruise from Florida to New England in Spring 2021. Private yacht charters are available for up to 7 guests. The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway is over 1,200 miles long. Due to its length, a variety of itineraries are available. Running from Miami, FL to Norfolk, VA there are many options for embarkation. Charters are offered in week-long segments.
BB will cruise through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. She will stop along the way where guests may explore. In Florida itineraries include the Gold Coast, the Treasure Coast, Space Coast, and First Coast. Experiences range from big cities to vast natural areas to a rocket launch. The islands of coastal Georgia are legendary. In fact, the Golden Isles were voted the “Best Islands in the Continental U.S.” by the most recent Travel + Leisure poll. BB will pass through Cumberland Island, Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island, the city of Savannah and north to Tybee Island. Charleston, South Carolina is a highlight. And in North Carolina Wilmington, Beaufort and Elizabeth City are favorite stops. Norfolk, VA is Mile Marker 0 of the ICW. However BB will continue north to New England.
