Fincantieri cuts steel for Ponant newbuild
Steel-cutting has started for Le Boreal, the first 142mtr superyacht ordered by Marseille-based Compagnie du Ponant at Fincantieri’s Ancona shipyard.
Similar work should begin in the coming weeks for sister ship L’Austral.
The vessels have ‘the spirit of a private yacht, with a large glass bow at the front and at the back, which will give them a real personality,’ said Bertand Leblond, technical manager of Ponant.
Other features are dynamic positioning systems and sophisticated waste treatment facilities.
