An artistic representation of the Lyautey poses proudly on the Naval Park. The liner is a symbol of old shipyards. If the Lyautey is not the last luxury boat built at the Forges and Chantiers de la Méditerranée, (will follow after him the Atlantic, the Sagafjord and the Fairsky), it is the seventeenth and last liner of line left the building sites seynois for a french company! Marseille - Dakar in less than a hundred hours. The ship, launched October 14, 1950, was delivered to the company Paquet March 8, 1952. From Marseille, it served North Africa and Morocco. The fast line connected France to Morocco in 39 hours. From June 1952, it connects Senegal in 97 h 30 to 22.80 knots average, thus putting Dakar within 100 hours of Marseille. A record at the time. The liner could carry up to 1,200 passengers in five different categories. Jean Gérin, former construction site engineer, gives a lot of information about the Lyautey and its manufacture in the review of "Regards on the history of La Seyne-sur-Mer". He describes a boat with an "elegant, racy silhouette that looked great with its streamlined Strombos fireplace in an airplane wing. Nothing to do with the huge cruise ships today. Dedicated to demolition in 1975. The book "History of the Shipping Company Package" published by Tacussel also contains historical documents on the Lyautey, such as the testimony of the burning of his kitchens in 1958, which left six dead and many wounded. The boat will be renamed Galilee in 1965 and assigned to the line Marseille - Haifa before resuming its identity and service on the company Pack a year later. In May 1967, it was sold to Italy and renamed Margarita. In November, it is once again yielded. This time to Constantine Eftymiadis of Piraeus who renamed him Lindos. The former Lyautey is sold for demolition at the age of 23 in 1975 1.
