Built at Entusi and unveiled to the public in 2017, the SS Potamkin Boat is providing public transportation to different villages and tourists on the lake. Additionally, the boat provides transport to dozens of pupils and students of schools on Bwama Island who previously lacked transport to school every day.
The boat was generously donated by the Potamkin Family through the Global Livingston Institute (GLI), and brought in to provide reliable, safe and affordable transportation to the communities around Lake Bunyonyi. Alternative transportation for locals is either dangerous boat transportation or using simple dugout wooden canoes. Boat accidents have been an emerging problem on the lake, and Entusi’s boat hopes to spark a safer environment on the water across Lake Bunyonyi.
