Paspaley Pearl to launch in June 2024 in partnership with pearling company Paspaley.
Ponant has just confirmed the launch of the 30-guest boutique expedition motor yacht Paspaley Pearl by Ponant which will commence her inaugural Kimberley season in June next year.
The move follows Paspaley’s acquisition of the former Island Escape from the administrators of the collapsed Island Escape Cruises earlier this year.
The vessel will be “the newest and only boutique expedition yacht in the Kimberley with private balconies,” Ponant said, with the ship also boasting the “highest level of environmental and technical systems”.
Paspaley Pearl will operate year-round in the Kimberley, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, with reservations to open in November.
