Lotus has been a familiar sight on the Lakes of Seattle, Puget Sound and North to Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska for more than 100 years. She can be seen cruising throughout the Salish Sea to Wooden Boat Festivals and special invitations.  And, YOU can be a part of it!

Today, she retains the charm and original furnishings of that lovely, adventurous era. Come share in the adventure. Come live the adventure!!

The Second Hundred Years...

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 maritime history, local legends and the tradition of traveling, living and playing on the water are experienced, enjoyed, and passed along to future generations.
