L’Austral by Ponant

L-AUSTRAL-ZODIACS-HEADING-BACK-TO-SHIP-2

Gliding past huge, glistening glaciers on an Antarctica yacht cruise is just magical. L’Austral is a small, sleek and sophisticated vessel that can reach even the most remote corners of this continent in true style.

Younger sister to Le Boreal, the stunning L’Austral is every bit her equal. A fusion of cutting edge Italian and French design that seamlessly blends tradition and innovation, she debuted in 2011 to instant cruise acclaim. Her unique, unmissable shape is formed of smooth contours and large arched windows that open up to the sea and the light.

With an understated cocktail of luxury, intimacy and well-being, L’Austral is a superb mega-yacht promising a truly unforgettable Antarctica cruise. On board, guests are treated to sinfully wonderful French cuisine with discreet, personal service. Striking the perfect balance between casual and chic, she features a wealth of personal touches that lend her the spirit of a ‘private yacht’.

L’Austral’s Antarctica cruise itineraries stand out from the crowd as she is able to make calls inaccessible to larger ships. As Antarctica cruise ships go, L’Austral is very hard to beat.
