Originally constructed by the Defoe Ship Building Company in Bay City Michigan in 1931, the 93-foot wooden yacht Honey Fitz was used by a number of presidents, and John F. Kennedy named her the Honey Fitz to honor his grandfather. This magnificent Presidential Yacht has been meticulously restored to her original state. She has returned to her former glory and is certified by The United States Coast Guard for up to 70 guests.

An iconic piece of United States history, the classically designed motor yacht Honey Fitz offers a one of a kind yachting experience to corporate and private clientele. The ex-Presidential Yacht Honey Fitz is available for an elegant cocktail party reception, casual brunch, lunch or upscale dinner reception.

The beautiful 93-foot Honey Fitz yacht embodies the vintage elegance and luxury of Americas golden age, The Gatsby Era.
