Rumbo Explora has been implementing for our visitors a unique experience of sleeping on board this historical ship, anchored in Puno Bay, fully equipped. Bunks in four cabins can accommodate 07 guests, who we welcome to enjoy wonderful sunsets and a generous Andean breakfast. The adventure and unique experience will be a highlight of your travels in Peru. The only place to spend the night afloat Lake Titicaca in Peru is on a 150-year-old British gunboat, now a B&B, with a remarkable history. Relax and leisure on the Sacred Lake of the Incas.
The Yavarí steamship was built in England in 1862 and Coya steamship in 1892, both ships were transported in pieces from England to Arica Chile (Arica then belonged to Peru) then from Arica to Tacna by train and finally from Tacna to Lake Titicaca (Puno) by mules, crossing the Andes over 4500 masl and more than 2766 pieces. Initially it was thought that it would take 06 months the transport of all Tacna to Puno, but that actually took us 06 years. Today the Yavarí is considered Museum ship and the Coya is tourist restaurant. Thanks to these steamboats the Lake Titicaca earned the name “The highest navigable lake in the world, which sailed between Peru and Bolivia. The Yavarí possess one of the oldest engines of its kind in the world still in operation, thanks to this it is written in the book Guinness World Record.
From the technical point of view, the Yavari Ship is the only one operating on Lake Titicaca-Peru from 1862 with legal permits from the Peruvian Navy and with certificate of Statutory Accident Insurance Transit, besides has vessel Insurance Policy to all risks in record, here some facts of Ship Yavari.
