Ponant disclosed the names of the four new ships


Four new yachts will soon be added to the Ponant fleet, one of our favourite companies for luxury expeditions. 

Four new yachts will soon be added to the Ponant fleet, one of our favourite companies for luxury expeditions.

The ships are under construction in Norway. The first two will arrive in time for the summer 2018 season and the other two for summer 2019.

LE LAPÉROUSE, LE CHAMPLAIN, LE BOUGAINVILLE, LE KERGUELEN are the names of the ships. They pay tribute to great French explorers who set sail to discover new continents, just as Ponant does by continuously adding amazing destinations.

The so-called Ponant Explorers are designed to gain access to the most inaccessible locations and to go further, where others do not go.

BlackBlueGreen is very happy to see the wave of new expedition-style ships. Hapag-loyd Cruises, Ponant, Crystal, Scenic and Hurtigruten all ordered new vessels. Who said small ships were of a dying breed?
