PONANT takes delivery of Le Lapérouse

PONANT is pleased to announce the arrival of its new vessel, Le Lapérouse, the first of the six EXPLORERS-class ships.

On 15 June, PONANT successfully took delivery of Le Lapérouse, the brand-new vessel and the first of the six exceptional PONANT EXPLORERS series. Construction of the other five ships is currently under way. Le Lapérouse left the shipyard in Ålesund, Norway, on 16 June.

Le Lapérouse is a wonderful achievement for the company and the result of intensive teamwork with Vard and Fincantieri. From remarkable nautical performances to technical excellence and offering an extraordinary level of comfort, everything is in place for the PONANT EXPLORERS series to be a huge success,” says Jean Emmanuel Sauvée, CEO and Co-Founder of PONANT.

 With just 92 staterooms and suites all with a balcony or private terrace, the ship boasts an elegant design, state-of-the-art technology and major innovations. Also designed to respect the environment, Le Lapérouse is the true symbol of a new generation of ships flying the French flag.
