DELTAVILLE, VIRGINIA | Buckingham Transport and Wolfe House Movers moved the historic U.S.S. Sequoia in Deltaville, VA. The Sequoia was the presidential yacht for almost 50 years, and was used by many of our U.S. Presidents for business and leisure events. John F. Kennedy spent his last birthday on board the Sequoia. Richard Nixon spent the night on the Sequoia before his resignation. Lyndon B. Johnson made several important decisions regarding the Vietnam War aboard the Sequoia. From Herbert Hoover to James Carter, the Sequoia hosted Presidents and their families until it was decommissioned and sold to a private buyer in 1977. After going through multiple owners and spending several years in storage, in 2019, the current owner had the yacht transported to a new location in Maine for restoration. Wolfe worked with the shipyard in Deltaville, VA to load the yacht onto an inland barge and take it to a bulkhead in Cambridge, MD. From there, the Sequoia was transferred to an ocean barge and transported up the coast to Maine. The 104' long vessel weighed 182,000 lbs and was moved on and off the barge using the remote-controlled Buckingham Hydraulic Power Dolly System.
