Compagnie du Ponant Orders New cruise ship

The world's only French-flagged cruise line and expedition specialist Compagnie du Ponant has ordered another luxury ship at a cost of Euros 100m. The ship will be built at the Italian Fincantieri shipyard and will feature 132 staterooms and suites.

The new cruise ship will be joining sister ships Le Boreal and L'Austral. The new vessel is expected to join the fleet by June 2013. The fleet currently comprises five French-flagged yachts: Le Ponant, 32 staterooms; Le Levant, 45 staterooms; Le Diamant, 113 staterooms and suites; and Le Boreal and L'Austral, both with 132 staterooms and suites.

Having led the project to build the two previous yachts with such flair, the Fincantieri shipyard has again been entrusted with the third ship. French designer Jean-Philippe Nuel will be responsible for the sophisticated modern interior which has contributed so much to the success of Le Boreal and L'Austral.

By the end of 2011, Compagnie du Ponant expects its growth to exceed the 20,000 passenger per year threshold, with turnover estimated at euro 80 M.

 The three sister ships all have numerous eco-friendly features: dynamic-positioning, advanced waste water treatment, reduced fuel consumption and emissions, and underwater detection system.
