Compagnie Du Ponant Announce Details Of New Ship Le Lyrial
Compagnie Du Ponant announce details of their newest vessel, Le Lyrial which will join the fleet in the Spring of 2015.
Le Lyrial will be the fourth vessel in a superb series of ships, Le Boréal, L’Austral and Le Soléal. Le Lyrial will be the last in Compagnie du Ponant’s series of 4 sister-ships flying the French flag.
Le Lyrial shall sail on her first cruise in April 2015 and she is promised to be just as sleek and innovative as her three superb sisters.
Le Lyrial refers to the Lyra constellation in the northern hemisphere. Its principal star is the blue Vega, one of the brightest stars in the sky which is on its way to becoming the next northern pole star, a rather fitting reference for a Five Star Expedition specialist of the Polar Regions.
Like the rest of the fleet, Le Lyrial embodies the ‘Yacht Cruises’ universe as conceived by Compagnie Du Ponant, a subtle combination of intimacy, authenticity and elegance with the inimitable “French touch”. The interior design, cosy yet contemporary, has again been entrusted to interior architect Jean-Philippe Nuel. He will be working closely with Veronique SAADÉ, Deputy Managing Director of Compagnie du Ponant, to create a “yachting” feel inspired by the dream destinations the company visits and the blue light of the Vega star in the Lyra constellation. The result will be a subtle variation around a palette of blues, ranging from the luminous delicate grey-blue of the Polar ice to splashes of the vivid turquoise blue found in Mediterranean coves.
Deck 6 on Le Lyrial has been redesigned to accommodate larger suites, up to 80m2 for the Owner’s Suite and as a result Le Lyrial will have 122 staterooms and suites compared to the 132 on Le Soléal, L’Austral and Le Boréal.
A certified CLEANSHIP like her sister-ships, this exceptional yacht will be cruising round the Mediterranean for her inaugural season, to Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, Turkey and beyond, before heading to the icy shores of Antarctica.
