Project Description


Year: 1871 | Shipyard:
Naval Architect: Gilles Vaton
Sailing Rig: | LOA: 13,18

Alcyon 1871 is the only replica, built by the Marseille carpenter Daniel Scotto, the hull in red cedar and the smart high spruce wood spars of the Jurassic forests: a 100% Marseille boat, apart from the sails that were made by the famous master sailboat Beppe Zaoli, in San Rémo. New to the circuit of classic boats, he is talked about, because he amazes by its shape and its sailing surface: difficult to tame, he tames little by little and his crew must use a lot of elbow oil, because there is no winch: all maneuvers are done with hoists. All the spoulies have recently been custom-made and in their entirety by Scotto. Alcyon 1871 is a piece of living archaeology, a history smuggler who gradually explains how our elders sailed during the second half of the 19th century, before the “fine keel” and dethroned by the international gauge.
