Built in 1904 to Locum, near Meillerie for the transport of materials, the boat “Neptune” was acquired in 1971 by the State of Geneva to preserve a testimony of the commercial navigation on the Lake Geneva.
In 1976, the State of Geneva puts back the management of the boat to the Foundation Neptune.
