“Both our firms are committed to sharing expertise and promoting the inimitable French lifestyle to design meaningful voyages,” said Hervé Gastinel, Global CEO of PONANT.

Aboard Le Ponant, the jewel of our fleet, everyone can reconnect with nature and their own inspirations and live out their desires under sail.”

With only 16 staterooms onboard and a dedicated chef, the travel experience for guests on board Le Ponant is as if they are on their own private yacht, with its small size enabling the yacht to offer exclusive ports of call.
