Yavari ship Museum

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.

The ships were built in "knock down" form; that is, they were assembled with bolts and nuts at the shipyard, dismantled into thousands of parts small enough to transport, and shipped to their final destination to be assembled with rivets and launched on the lake.
