Paul Gauguin Cruises announced it has ordered two new luxury expedition ships. They will be built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri with delivery planned for 2022. The deal includes an option for a third ship. The order is worth around $332 million.

These 230 passenger ships will be more environmentally friendly with the ability to run smokeless for up to 10 hours a day in port or while in environmentally sensitive areas by using advanced battery technology.

Paul Gauguin Cruises was purchased by French cruise line Ponant in August. The ships will be built based on the design of Ponant’s current Explorer-class ships.

“We are delighted to continue our historic collaboration with Fincantieri,” said Jean Emmanuel Sauvée, CEO of Ponant. “This agreement for two additional ships allows us to develop the Paul Gaugin brand we acquired a few weeks ago and consolidates our position as the world leader of luxury expedition cruise.”
