Seen in the yacht basin at Courseulles in Normandy, Papageno looks like she might be a Dragon, but I couldn't get close enough to be sure.

Courseulles is a small, tidal port on the Normandy coast which is mainly gently sloping beaches, there's a long history of day boats sailing from the port dating back well before the war.

 Interesting name, Papageno is half man and half bird, loves wine, women and music and is the secret star of Mozart's Magic Flute and also seems to mean bird catcher.
