Barque La Savoie
These wide-sided and low-draft boats were used up to WWII to transport various materials, in particular stones from the Meillerie quarries. Art and literature have celebrated their characteristic silhouette, which is inseparable from the Léman landscapes. The Savoie was built in Thonon between 1997 and 2000 using old frames and some old tools. The project was instigated by a group of passionate volunteers who were part of the association Mémoire du Léman. The Savoie sails every summer on the lake. It's the largest lateen sail barque currently navigating.
