Yavari Steam Boat on Lake Titicaca

Yavari Steam Boat on Lake Titicaca

The YAVARI was delivered in pieces by mule to the Lake over two miles (3,810 m) above sea level. After nearly 100 years of faithful service, she was found slipping rapidly into decay. Now she has been saved, all her original features restored, her engine repaired, and she is getting ready to be fitted out to comply with today's standards of safety in order to sail again.

The YAVARI, a State Registered Museum, is now berthed in Puno Bay, behind the Sonesta Posadas del Inca Hotel, between the town and Isla Esteves (Hotel Libertador). It can be reached by taxi or by launch. A 70-metre pontoon gives access to the vessel and visitors are warmly welcomed.

For the enthusiast, and with advanced notice, the mighty 1914 Bolinder engine can be fired up - an unforgettable experience!

The YAVARI has a future as well as a past. By applying the same vision and ingenuity as got her there in the first place, the YAVARI is preparing to be reborn to serve again. Today the restoration programme has reached its most critical stage.
