Construction a go for Ponant
STEEL has been cut for Ponant’s third and fourth expedition yachts which are due to be delivered in 2019 and are part of its four Ponant Explorers.
To mark the occasion a ceremony was held this month for Le Bougainville and Le Dumont-d’Urville which will be built as 1C class ice ships.
Inside the four ships, which measure 131m in length, there will be 92 guest cabins.
The first two ships in the Ponant Explorers series will be operational in 2018.
