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

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

the Saphir Lounge, having a walk on the Sun Deck.
