|Title||Lac Léman | Nyon | Fleur Bleue|
|Limited Edition||50 pieces|
Launched in July 1939 at the end of its construction by Jean Oester's shipyard in Rolle (Switzerland), Fleur Bleue, registered Z7, accumulated an impressive number of victories in regattas on Lake Geneva during fifty years of competition: 614, a unique record!
This monotype of the Lacustre class sailed until 2003. It was found in 2008 by Carinne Bertola, project manager for the extension of the Lake Geneva Museum, before being stored at Philippe Durr's boatyard.
This Honduran mahogany jewel was renovated at the Chantier naval du Vieux-Port in Versoix and returned to exactly the same condition as when it was first built. A colossal task, initiated by the Fondation du Musée du Léman, which requires 2,000 hours of work and a budget of some CHF 165,000. This prestigious vessel later joined the collections of the Museum of Nyon.
The artwork highlights this legendary sailboat on a panorama of the city of Nyon and its castle in a unique nocturnal atmosphere in the image of this historical jewel.
