Concerned about sustainable tourism, we get our supplies directly from the places where we dock and pay particular attention to the origin of the products we use.
Our mission is to ensure that you enjoy some unforgettable moments – an integral part of the experience of a trip on board Le Ponant. Whether it’s a lobster barbecue, a theme evening organised on board or at a port of call, or a film screened on the sails, we have dreamed up some exceptional moments for you, which you can participate in throughout your cruise as the mood strikes you.
Also on the programme are a variety of sports and water activities, with all the necessary equipment you need to enjoy them. So, treat yourself to an experience – more than just a trip – where every moment has been conceived for and with you.
Conserving the environment is one of our priorities. We have therefore chosen to invest in innovations and equipment at the cutting edge of technology, with the aim of achieving the highest standards possible in the sector.
Le Ponant is the only yacht in the world with a hybrid propulsion system. This uniquely designed three-masted schooner can rely solely on its sails but also can connect to the electricity network in certain ports to limit its ecological impact.
On board, we have banned the use of plastic in straws, laundry bags, cups and individual food portion packaging. Packaging is collected from our warehouses. Unavoidable plastic waste is sorted and entrusted to resource-recovery companies, who monitor its traceability until its elimination.
Le Ponant is equipped with a complete desalination and wastewater treatment system. This biodegradation process works without the use of chemicals. It provides clean water and meets the highest quality standards.
On board, 60% of packaging is recycled, while the rate elsewhere in the world is only 20%. The rest is 100% traced. We have on-board compactors adapted to each type of waste and are working to optimise their management on land.
Enjoy the sea at the rhythm of the wind, sailing as close as possible to the coasts to discover, with new-found interest, routes that are as quintessential as they are exclusive.
