At 92 feet, Lotus was the largest power yacht on the West Coast when she was launched in Seattle during the Alaska Yukon Pacific Exposition. Her owners fitted her out with Tiffany lighting, Rookwood tile, leaded glass windows and more than the usual comforts of home. Lotus retains the charm and original furnishings of that lovely, adventurous era.
