The Bolinder Engine
The Yavari discovered
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.
Open daily: 9.00am – 5.00pm and other times by arrangement.
The Bolinder Engine
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.
