Ponant announces brand-new catamaran cruise ship

Ponant has announced an incredible addition to their fleet of 13 cruise ships. Coming in at just 24 metres long, Spirit of Ponant is a catamaran cruise ship with just six passenger staterooms. Imagine island-hopping on this beauty—a catamaran where comfort, luxury and connection with nature all come together.  This is the Spirit of Ponant, and you’ll enjoy typically Ponant service from a crew of just four, comprising the Captain, a Ponant-appointed chef, a seaman and a steward. Intimacy doesn’t quite cut it—this is a new type of luxury cruising. 

Embarking on the Spirit of Ponant, is to have an authentic experience of sailing at sea, with extremely easy access to the sea and water sports activities. The concept and design of this Lagoon Seventy 7 yacht has been praised by everyone in the industry, won over by the spacious interior and exterior areas. Guests will really appreciate the high-end finishings as much as her exceptional sailing qualities
