Le Dumont-d'Urville embodies a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy, and comfort. This limited-capacity yacht incorporates 92 environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed cabins, with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside, providing for an intimate and extraordinary cruising experience.

As the first ship this beautiful 184-passanger remains the unique atmosphere off it's sisters. Aboard this ship that flies the French flag, you can experience the incomparable pleasure of an intimate cruise, with the possibility of exploring an ever-increasing range of destinations in an ethnic-chic ambiance with luxury service.
