Barque La Savoie

    Évian-les-Bains

    The Savoie, whose home port is Evian, is the replica of a 35-m barque with lateen sails. It was built in 1896 near Geneva for a family of boatmen from Meillerie, the Pérays.

    These wide-sided and low-draft boats were used until the Second World War to transport various materials, in particular stones from the Meillerie quarries. Art and literature have celebrated their characteristic silhouette, inseparable from the Lake Geneva landscapes. The Savoie was built in Thonon between 1997 and 2000 using old templates and some tools from the past. This project was born from the passion of volunteers united within the association Mémoire du Léman. The Savoie sails every summer on the lake. It’s the largest lateen sail barque currently navigating.
