PASPALEY PEARL by PONANT open for business

The newly announced collaboration between PONANT and PASPALEY have announced their dedicated website and booking centre are officially open for their 2025 inaugural year of sailing.

Presently undergoing an extensive multi-million-dollar renovation, the 30-guest boutique expedition motor yacht will sail year-round to some of the world's most exceptional destinations with diverse itineraries spanning the Kimberley, Australia's Far North (including Arnhem Land and Cape York), East Indonesia (including Raja Ampat & Spice Islands) and Papua New Guinea (including the Sepik River and New Britain Island).

PASPALEY PEARL by PONANT'S inaugural 10-night expedition will set sail on 10 January 2025, from Dili in East Timor to Bali. Designed to captivate and enthral, this expedition promises unique encounters with whale sharks, Komodo dragons and seldom experienced Indonesian cultures along the way.

Accompanying the launch is the newly created PASPALEY PEARL by PONANT website which will continue to evolve, providing guests and travel distributors access to a dedicated Yacht Concierge who can offer personalised assistance with private air charters, pre and post accommodation and other services to ensure an unforgettable expedition experience.

"After many months of meticulous preparations behind the scenes, we stand on the threshold of a significant milestone as we proudly announce the official launch of PASPALEY PEARL by PONANT" says Sarina Bratton AM – PONANT Global Senior Strategic Advisor and Honorary Chairwoman APAC.  "Our vision is to create and deliver bespoke, boutique expedition experiences for few guests, in a safe, comfortable, environmentally sustainable and inspiring environment, allowing our naturalists to showcase the wildlife and cultures in many untapped, remote destinations in and around Australia."

"Sharing the routes that my crew and I pioneered in the 1970s onboard our pearl luggers will provide wonderful opportunities for guests," says Nicholas Paspaley AC, PASPALEY Executive Chairman. "An in-depth immersion into and understanding of the pearling industry will enrich many."

Emerging as the newest and only boutique expedition motor yacht in the Kimberley with private balconies, the ship also is equipped with industry-benchmarked technology for navigation, safety, and environmentally sensitive operations. Expeditions across the Asia Pacific region promise to provide travellers with a new standard of boutique expedition travel.
