The legendary yacht
The Ponant sailing yacht – renovated
This symbolic yacht has only 16 cabins and suites. Overhauled in 2020, this ship redefines the concept of “luxury yacht” and has become a true treasure that will welcome you on an incomparable journey. The majestic, now even more privately designed three-master gives you the chance to experience the ultimate travel experience.
The yacht’s 16 cabins and suites spread over three decks are very spacious, some with their own verandas. The large windows and hatches provide soft and bright light. They are tastefully decorated and offer a luxurious setting for rest and relaxation.
The four sister ships Le Boréal, L’ Austral, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial are ultra-modern, luxurious yachts built between 2010 and 2015.
The interior was designed by the French designer Jean-Philippe Nuel, who designed the ships in an „expedition style“ with natural authentic colours and materials and driftwood, in adaptation to the destinations visited.
