Third yacht in the works for Ponant


Le Soleal renderingCompagnie du Ponant, operator of luxury yachts Le Boreal and L’Austral, will build a third vessel, to be called Le Soleal.

The 264-passenger ship is scheduled to launch in July 2013 and operate Arctic cruises during its inaugural season.

According to Ponant, Le Soleal will be designed to navigate safely in the most extreme regions. It will be constructed with advanced wastewater treatment facilities, reduced fuel consumption and emissions, and an underwater detection system.

Neither the cost of the ship nor the name of its builder was immediately available.
