Le Ponant

Luxury Cruises with Ponant

The designers of this sleek, white yacht have combined playful design touches with a nod to nautical credentials. Conceived in 1991 as a reaction to the growing trend for big cruise ships, Le Ponant offers a true sailing experience with a convivial atmosphere and itineraries that are little short of expeditions. With a draft of just 13 ft, Le Ponant can navigate shallow waterways and anchorages in off-the-beaten-track sailing routes. The three masts soar 148 feet and with a Force Four wind abeam, Le Ponant can achieve 12 knots under sail alone.

There are four passenger decks aboard Le Ponant, all easily accessible without the need for a lift. Pont Soleil is where passengers gather to watch the Commandant navigate the yacht and sailors hoisting the sails; it is also the location of sun-beds for those who want to max-out their tans. The Diamant Terrace restaurant serves buffet breakfast, lunch, and occasional open-air dinners; while gourmet dinners are served in the Restaurant Karukera. On Pont Saint-Barth the Emeraude Lounge and bar leads on to a delightful covered open deck space which is popular by day and night. At the stern of the yacht steps lead to the marina pontoon where you can enjoy a dip in the sea and a variety of watersports as well as accessing the Zodiacs which take you on shore excursions.

Passenger accommodation is on Pont Marie-Galante and Pont Antigua. All cabins are perfectly adequate for a week-long cruise and there's a choice of double or twin beds; private bathroom with powerful shower; as well as oodles of L'Occitane gels and shampoos; there's also a mini-bar; safe; telephone; radio; television; and air-conditioning.
