The state-of-the-art mega-yacht, L’Austral launched in May 2011, bringing a unique blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being to small ship cruising. With just 132 cabins, L’Austral’s sleek design and small size means she can offer exclusive itineraries featuring ports of call that are inaccessible to larger ships. The yacht’s distinctive shape features smooth contours and large, arched windows, opening up to the sea and letting in the light. Precious materials in soothing neutral tones are brought to life with splashes of colour to create a discreet elegance reminiscent of a private yacht.
