Fincantieri Delivers Fourth Cruise Ship to Ponant

 Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has delivered Le Lyrial, a super luxury cruise ship, to the French cruise line Ponant (Bridgepoint Group).

The ship was launched on Saturday, April 11th at Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard.

The new ship, which will fly the French flag, is the fourth sister ship following L’Austral, Le Boreal and Le Soleal, delivered respectively in May 2010, April 2011 and June 2013.

As its sister ships, Le Lyrial can be compared to a mega-yacht. It is equipped with the very latest in environmentally friendly technology, while its small size means that it will be able to reach ports and destinations inaccessible to larger vessels.

At 11,000 gross tonnes, Le Lyrial is approximately 142 metres long and 18 wide. The passenger capacity is around 244 guests accommodated in 122 cabins, all with a sea view and 94% with a private balcony.

In addition, Le Lyrial has been awarded “comfort class” classification by the certifying board Bureau Veritas due to low levels of vibration and noise that it produces.

Ponant, based in Marseille, currently has a fleet of four cruise ships targeting the super luxury market.
