The British Yukon Navigation (BYN) Company sternwheeler fleet plied the upper Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City in the early twentieth century. The S.S. Klondike was the largest sternwheeler in the fleet. Built in 1929, the ship sank in 1936, was rebuilt and launched as the S.S. Klondike II in spring 1937.

Located on the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse, Yukon, and restored to its original 1937-40 appearance, the S.S. Klondike pays tribute to an era of riverboat transportation and the inland water transportation system that linked the Yukon to the outside world before the advent of roads.
