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 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 is experienced, enjoyed and passed along to future generations.
