The aim at the heart of the Le Boreal and L'Austral designs was the concept of a cruising yacht. The completed ships are custom-built at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Ancona, Italy. Le Boreal was delivered to Compagnie du Ponant in April 2010. As the fourth ship of their cruise fleet, she can accommodate 260 passengers in 132 cabins which all have sea views and nearly all of which have private balconies.

Her pure, streamlined silhouette was created by Stirling Design International in Nantes, France. Le Boreal has just been awarded a Gold Medal by the European Cruiser Association. This prize was given in recognition of her elegance, personality, innovative equipment and the meticulous attention to detail in the design of the ship to fulfill the expectations of her passengers.

Stirling Design International (SDI) is a French firm of naval designers and architects specialized in the design of megayachts and commercial vessels.
