Pleasure crafts for urban waterways
Les Bateaux Parisiens
Architect: Gérard Ronzatti
One of the specific activities developed by the firm is the design and construction of pleasure craft for urban waterways, for the Bateaux Parisiens navigation company. These ferry-type craft are a well-known feature in Paris, where they carry sight-seers up and down the Seine.
Their open decks and fully glazed superstructures offer passengers panoramic views with protection from wind and rain. The transparent above-deck housing is carried by a slender steel frame. The structure of the hull is similar to that of a trimaran; and is built of steel, like the superstructures that carry the glazing.
