Le Ponant

This beautiful three-masted sailing yacht carries just 32 guests, small enough to visit some of the world's most secluded harbours.

What we love

Ponant's most intimate ship came into service over 20 years ago, but is still much loved today. The yacht is ultra sleek in its design, and the modern staterooms all have porthole windows. The mostly francophone guests love the al fresco nature of the public spaces, with a large sundeck, outdoor restaurant and swimming marina, and you'll always feel connected to the sea.

Onboard Experiences & Facilities

Le Ponant - Watersports marina

The ambience on board is refined yet relaxed, complemented by a low key programme of enrichment and entertainment.

There is a real al fresco, yacht-style feel to the vessel, with a sun deck, observation area and a marina at the back of the ship for watersports and zodiac excursions.


Le Ponant in the Maldives

Ponant are committed to minimising their environmental and social impact on the areas they visit.

As well as several measures taken across the fleet, such as eliminating the use of heavy fuel, CO2 offsetting and working towards a zero plastic waste policy Le Ponant is the first of the fleet to be fitted with electrical connections to utilise shore-to-ship power when docked, which helps to reduce fuel consumption.
