Le Boréal: natural materials and nautical features

Le Boréal: natural materials and nautical features
Construction of Le Boréal, the first of two 140mtr luxury yachts ordered by Compagnie du Ponant from Fincantieri, has started with the cutting of steel plates.

For the interiors, the French cruise line has called on Ocre Bleu, the architecture and interior design agency of Jean-Philippe Nuel. Reflecting the same image of the three existing ships in the fleet, Le Boréal and sister L’Austral will offer an ambiance created by a blend of relaxation, sophistication and intimacy.

A contemporary style will favour natural materials and traditional nautical features in the public spaces, as well as throughout the 132 outside cabins and suites, 95% of which have balconies. A reception area, lounges, two restaurants, a fully equipped theatre, an outside swimming pool, a beauty and finess centre and an observation lounge are planned.
