The Wianno Senior is well known to many Americans as the yacht on which President John F. Kennedy used to sail during his summer holidays in the family home in Hyannis Port, a few miles from the village of Wianno.titolo His father had given him the boat for his fifteenth birthday and it was his favorite boat for the rest of his life. A famous photo which appeared on the cover of Life in July 1953, shows Kennedy smiling with Jacqueline Bouvier, who had not yet become his wife, on board of the Wianno Senior Victura.


During the years at the White House, the President’s family found some peace in Cape Cod, walking along the beaches in Hyannis, playing with their children in the garden or cruising in Nantucket Sound on their Wianno Senior.   


Today John F. Kennedy’s Wianno, Victura, built in 1932, is kept and displayed at the Kennedy Memorial Library in Boston. 

JFK’s passion for these boats was shared by the whole family, and in particular by his brothers Joe, Bobby and Ted. The Kennedy family still owns three Wianno Seniors.

“I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it is because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it we are going back from whence we came.”
