Belle Epoque - Diesel-electric paddle boat

A mythical boat! Renovated in 2016 just as its twin the VEVEY, the boat is considered by many to be “mythical", since it operated, for almost 50 years, on the journey the length of Lake Geneva from Le Bouveret to Geneva and back from April to October and thus regularly interrupted the day-to-day life of local residents as it whistled when approaching the landing.
