Ponant

An exceptional fleet

PONANT invites you to discover – or rediscover – incredible destinations on board its five French-flagged ships:

  • Le Ponant, a three-masted yacht with 32 cabins for a cruise that has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere
  • L’Austral, Le Boréal and Le Soléal, three luxurious ships with 132 cabins and elegant, understated exterior and interior lines
  • And our latest jewel, Le Lyrial, a fourth sistership with 122 cabins, delivered in spring 2015.

Accommodating a maximum of 264 passengers, our ships let you maintain your privacy; you feel as if you are sailing on your own private yacht. A yacht serving the legendary ports of call and secret harbours that are only accessible to small ships.
