The barques of lake Léman, atypical vessels of the XIXth century, marked the activity ion the lake for more tan a century. They participated actively in the construction of ports and buildings and in the transportation of goods around the Léman. At that time, it was a freight carrier.
The very unusual shape of this vessel is in fact, the body of a galiote with “apoustis” (platforms serving as gangways and overhanging the sides of the boat). We find many elements of the structure that were borrowed from the galleys and introduced on lake Léman by the Genoese in the XIIIth century. In spite of a vocabulary that is unique to these boats and is used by shipwrights and watermen, many words similar to those used on Mediterranean boats can be found.
On a request from the Duc de Savoie in 1671 Laurent Dental, a shipwright, invented the barque of the Léman.
The present monograph shows the barque Savoie that was built at the Belotte shipyard in Geneva (CH) in 1896.
The plans were drafted after a research for documents and pieces of information around the Léman, information from Pierre-André Reymond, a naval architect who built two barques : La Savoie and La Demoiselle with the assistance of André Lesnay, a member of the “Association des Amis du Musée National de la Marine”.
It will allow you to build an unusual model that exists nowhere else but on the Léman.
It is an elegant vessel in its shape, and simple to make for beginners because of the small number of elements of furniture.
The art of navigation under lateen sails is listed in the 2020 intangible heritage in France. Requests for listing are also in process in various European countries such as Spain, Italy, Croatia and lately Switzerland which regroups the lateen sails of Franco-Swiss Alpine lakes.
