The L'Austral, sister ship to the Le Boreal, is the fruit of Italian expertise and French sophistication. A superb mega-yacht with 132 cabins, the L'Austral links tradition and innovation, cruising to worldwide destinations in luxury. Launched in 2011, the L'Austral remains faithful to her philosophy - to create a unique atmosphere, a subtle blend of luxury, intimacy and well-being.

Superior materials, discreet elegance and a tasteful décor combined with exterior and interior lines to reflect a nautical mood, subtly revisited. On board, soothing neutral tones are enlivened by splashes of red, her signature theme linking tradition and innovation to create personal touches in the spirit of a "private yacht".

Dining Aboard the L'Austral
Loyal to the great French tradition, the haute cuisine on board is worthy of the finest restaurants, where discreet, attentive service is the hallmark. Two restaurants welcome you for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Gastronomic Restaurant, with a capacity of 268 persons, serves French and international cuisine accompanied by fine wine. On the Grill Restaurant, you will have the opportunity to eat outside and enjoy buffet lunch and themed dinners.

Life aboard the L'Austral
Find a special ambiance aboard the L'Austral, as well as the feeling that you are on board your own yacht.

Whether you want to join other guests in the theater or games area (Wii™ consoles, etc), or relax on your own in a quiet corner of the library, L'Austral has been designed to meet the needs of every guest. Fitted with the latest equipment (Kinesis Wall, running machine) and the luxurious Beauty Center on L'Austral welcomes you for some unforgettable moments of relaxation and pampering.

Everything has been done to preserve the independence of each guest to suit their personal tastes: lounges for lectures and shows, the spa, but also more intimate spaces such as the library and internet corner. Comfortable cabins, nearly all with private balcony, are available for families either as triples or as communicating cabins. There is also a games area with Wii™ consoles, children’s menus, and baby-sitting service. Just as if you were on a private yacht, your time is your own to do as you please.

Smooth and quiet to provide maximum comfort, L'Austral has also earned the international “green ship” label for her numerous eco-friendly features (dynamic positioning system to avoid having to drop anchor, waste water treatment on board, reduced fuel consumption, etc).

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
