build in 1930 at the lemarchand. shipyard birth of a great classic sailboat certainly the most beautiful pleasure boats built in la liandrais.
in 1929, louis lemarchand managed the shipyard where the boat was born. he was the son of a carpenter, manufacturer of beautiful and strong tuna ships and pilot sailboats. the owner was reknown in the sailing set of saint malo. mr. and mrs. verliac were members of the yacht club de france.
adrien verliac was a pharmacist. that certainly explains the name given to the ship; Hygeia, goddess of health.*
the plans were ordered to daniel severi, talented naval architect who knows the sea very well. he sailed for many years and
doubled cape horn several times. formerly, hygie was a schooner of 55 tons with a length of 20.25 meters. she was marconi rigged mainsail and mizzen gaff,
staysail and jib. the luxurious interiors, are signed by a very select parisian cabinetmaking company wich had a high reputation at the time: "au bûcheron".
in 1931, hygie under flag of yacht club de france won the cup king edward VII on the cowes-dinard route for cutters to minoru, karin III and gwenaloé.
in 1960 extensive changes underwent to the ship, the stern was lengthened by 70 cm, the chains were removed, the rig was changed to marconi ketch with a great wooden mast and foremast aluminium. another important change, a bulky roof was added.
in 1986, during a violent storm in the gulf of genoa, hygie suffered serious damage and thanks to the intervention of the architect george auzépy-brenneur, this beautiful ketch returned to its original beauty with a oregon pine masting by les baux shipyard in sanary-sur-mer.
