Waiting for your ship to come in? The luxury flagship of an iconic French fleet is at the dock.

Written by Jenn Thornton

When John Wayne wasn’t on a movie set, he was still rockin’ the boat, chiefly his own, Wild Goose—a Goose plenty good for the gander, by the way. Also familiar with exploring the high seas in high style: world-class yacht manufacturer Ponant. The fleet’s flagship Le Ponant exercises the many privileges of being a smaller ship, with access to clandestine ports of call including mythical and ancient anchorages. Passage on this dream boat via The Ponant Adventure, a photo-packed book in Bristol Fashion, means a visual expedition into a rarified and truly rapturous world. (Is that the wind at your back?)
