You have stepped back in time…

Experience life aboard as it was at the turn of the century. Lotus has been a familiar sight in Puget Sound and North to Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska for more than 100 years. She was the largest power yacht on the West Coast when she was launched in Seattle in 1909. Today, she 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, local legends and the tradition of traveling, living and playing on the water are experienced, enjoyed, and passed along to future generations.
