Set to launch in 2020, Le Bellot is one of Ponant Cruises’ six exploration yachts named after famous expeditionists. Christened in honour of arctic explorer Joseph René Bellot, Le Bellot fittingly specialises in white circle expeditions such as the Norwegian fjords and Antarctica.
As well as a nod to the past, with their generation of sleek luxury yachts, Ponant pioneers toward the future. Le Bellot has many features designed to make her a truly sustainable mode of cruising. Examples include an ice-breaking hull, cutting-edge wastewater technology, and devices that prevent oil and air pollution in the fragile environments Le Bellot will explore.
Le Bellot is a small, intimate ship designed with the concept of feeling like guests are actually on their own private luxury yacht. She is a home away from home you can enjoy in true comfort as you see the world in exceptional style. Le Bellot has just 92 cabins and suites on 4 decks. Every stateroom has a private balcony while suites have their own terrace. Being a smaller ship, Le Bellot allows closer contact with the marine environment and some elements of the ship are conceived to facilitate interaction with the sea.
