This hybrid propulsion system, combining wind power and a state-of-the-art engine running on liquefied natural gas (LNG), represents a significant step towards environmentally friendly sea travel.

French Elegance

To ensure the interior matches the grandeur of the vessel, renowned architect Maxime d’Angeac has been entrusted with the design. Backed by Hetland Maritime, Accor’s vision, and Chantiers de l’Atlantique’s expertise, the project will receive 70-80% financing from commercial banks, with a consortium of equity partners, including a minority stake from Accor. This not only underscores the vessel’s financial viability but also emphasizes the quintessence of French savoir-faire in maritime excellence.
