After 2 seasons of important renovation work, la Savoie has been put back into water last 30th March.
Thank you to all those who allowed this revival. The Communauté de Communes du Pays d'Evian have been trusting us since 2014, and have encouraged other public boards such as the Conseil Départemental de Haute Savoie which has made the most important financial contribution of this very important project. On behalf of these public entities, many others have decided to support us, and thanks to them, La Savoie is reborn and is now going to sail for a long time. We also thank Chantier Bernard for its outstanding work.
Renovation works would not have been possible without the great commitment of the Association's volunteers, who provided about 5000 working hours. Their hard work has helped to reduce the costs, and it appears that the Association itself provided half of the total budget.
This important financial involvement includes a loan amounting to 230 000 € to be paid off over 12 years time.
We still need your support for the years to come, by promoting La Savoie. Take your friends and family onboard for a short cruise or book the Barque for a private cruise for weddings, birthdays, etc.
We will be delighted to welcome you onboard to cruise in of the most beautiful scenery of Europe.
