JFK yacht donated for use by charity


John F. Kennedy’s presidential yacht, the 93-foot Honey Fitz, will help WishGivers.org raise money for the critically ill children of America’s military, police and firefighters.

Texas oilman William Kallop, who bought the Honey Fitz at Sotheby’s Camelot auction in 1998 for $5.9 million and recently had the vessel restored, agreed to donate use of the yacht to help WishGivers.org fund its charitable efforts.

The Honey Fitz is one of the most famous vessels in American history, serving five sitting presidents.
