Welcome aboard Le Ponant

With her sleek lines, her decks extending along the full length of her 88 metres, her three masts reaching for the sky and her sails ready to take flight, Le Ponant captivates all who sail on her. There is no need to be an experienced sailor to embark on board this beauty. While passengers do not participate in the manoeuvres, the crew are always delighted to answer any of your questions. As on a private yacht, you will sail with a small group (64 passengers) of people who really love being at sea.
Following in the nautical tradition of three-masted sailing ships, Le Ponant will take you on a voyage of discovery. The ship capacity provides intimacy and convivial atmosphere to the cruise. The refined life on board, the welcoming charm of your cabin, the lounges and the restaurants setting are all invitations to relax.

Under full sail, gliding over the sea with the wind, you will fall under Le Ponant's spell.

Tasteful sophistication favouring life in the open air is the philosophy of Le Ponant.

The ship has plenty of space including a large comfortable lounge, two restaurants one with a terrace, and a vast sun deck from which to admire the 1500 m² of sail. There is also a platform just above sea level from which you can gaze at the marine life below or enjoy the water sports*.

The public rooms are flexible and able to receive all the passengers at once for conferences, presentations, or work sessions. Enjoy meeting people in the Emeraude Lounge, relaxing in the Saphir Lounge, having a walk on the Sun Deck.

Le Ponant offer Discreet yet attentive service.
Of course tribute is paid to the great French gastronomic tradition, accompanied by a selection of red, white and rosé wines free of charge during meals. A fine vintage wine list is also available.

At lunchtime a delicious buffet is served on the terrace, while evening menus are more elaborate in the refined décor of the Karukéra Restaurant where you dine at the table of your choice. Later in the bar, a pianist entertains guests.

The Diamant Restaurant and the Panoramic Restaurant offer a high quality cuisine and can host 67 guests. Both are widely open to the sea.

Take a voyage as an individual on board - or Charter Le Ponant!
If you are seeking a unique venue for a special event, then look no further. Whether you want to cruise with friends, organize a family celebration (weddings, anniversaries), or plan a business event (seminars, conventions, product
launches), then consider chartering Le Ponant.
