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. And 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.

The M/V Lotus Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.                                                 Our mission is to restore and preserve the 1909 Motor Vessel LOTUS. And, in the doing, to provide a gathering place where Pacific Northwest maritime history comes alive, our adventures are celebrated and the tradition of traveling, living and playing on the water are experienced, enjoyed and passed along to future generations.

The Boat Deck will be lovely this weekend!
