PONANT Takes Delivery Of Le Bougainville

PONANT has successfully taken delivery of Le Bougainville, the third vessel in its exceptional PONANT EXPLORERS series. The ship left Søvik in Norway on the morning of 8 April and she is currently sailing to Spain to begin her maiden cruise on 15 April from Malaga. She will be officially inaugurated on 4 June.

PONANT is delighted with its collaboration with VARD, the Norwegian subsidiary of the Italian shipyard, FINCANTIERI, both in terms of the design and construction of the new vessels as well as the respect for the deadlines of the development schedule

Combining an intimate size with just 92 staterooms and suites, all with a balcony or private terrace, taut, sleek lines, refined design, cutting-edge technologies, respect for the environment and major innovations, Le Bougainville is truly the symbol of the new generation of ships flying the French flag.

As with all the PONANT EXPLORERS vessels, it is fitted with a world first, the “Blue Eye”. This multi-sensorial underwater salon will allow guests to discover and experience the underwater world via two portholes in the form of a cetaceous eye looking out on to the sea bed, non-intrusive underwater lighting, and hydrophones integrated into the keel retransmitting the natural symphony of the deep water, as well as Body Listening sofas, offering a unique sensorial listening experience by corporal resonance.

PONANT maintains the course of its development

Enriching the existing fleet (Le Ponant, Le Boréal, L’Austral, Le Soléal and Le Lyrial) and announced in 2016, the development of the new PONANT ships is on schedule and respecting the construction timetable.

Le Lapérouse – June 2018

Trying to explore each and every inch of this wonderful planet via cruise ship.
