Yachts add a touch of luxury to water transport that has yet to be matched by diamond-studded dinghies and caviar-powered jet skis. Sail in style with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a two-hour yacht cruise plus a complimentary glass of wine on the USS Sequoia presidential yacht (a $250 value). The Sequoia departs from the Gangplank Marina in Washington, DC. Choose from seven time slots:

  • Sunday, September 11, at 6 p.m.

The 104-foot USS Sequoia presidential yacht has entertained America's heads of state ever since Herbert Hoover boarded the royally appointed vessel. Built in 1925, the Trumpy-designed yacht transports passengers on a two-hour voyage on the Potomac River, delivering eye-catching views of the bank and stunning vistas of the city unmarred by the craters from its many mole-man invasions. Voyagers can sip a glass of wine and relax on the top deck in original teak deck chairs that once cozened the keisters of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. Below deck, explore the national historic landmark's collection of presidential photographs and original memorabilia, or ogle the piano near the aft salon on which Nixon composed his resignation jingle. No presidential-footstep following is complete without reeling in the sights on the rear fish deck where FDR used to cast his line.
