The idea to build a new boat prototype came about as the shipyard approached 100 years of service. We wanted to celebrate this momentous anniversary with style. What better way than to build a unique and modern boat to honor a century of expert boatbuilding at the Corsier Port Shipyard?
The sleek and modern lines of the Trident 32 are in the spirit of the boats that gave the shipyard its reputation. The result is a high-performance boat with beautifully clean lines.
Flagship boat of the Corsier Port Shipyard for its craftsmanship, the Taifun underwent a massive restoration between 2009 and 2011. The boat was originally built in 1911 for the Olympic Games in Stockholm where it won a gold medal.
A portion of the boat’s frame was completely replaced, the deck was entirely refurbished in Burmese teak, the winches were removed, and the boat was returned to its classic configuration with the help of the famous naval architect, Guy Ribadeau-Dumas.
The motorboat Ida was built in 1910 in the Mégevet Shipyard (ancestor of the Corsier Port Shipyard). In 2009, the woodwork was refinished and the original engine was restored. Ida is the only boat left from the era of the Mégevet Shipyard.
