Legendary and luxurious superyacht, Plan B

Plan B started as a research vessel for the Australian Navy, mapping the famous Great Barrier Reef. It was named for the famous explorer Matthew Flinders, and has a very adventurous soul. Due to having been a survey ship, it now has an unbeatably quiet hull and continues to be a strong and reliable vessel, however it has undergone a complete refit to a very luxurious standard, with each area being extremely unique.

You won’t find another superyacht like Plan B; all spaces are urban-inspired, with Polynesian accent pieces, and it has truly been designed for enjoying the great outdoors.

There are just five cabins for up to 12 guests at a time. Firstly there is the master suite on Deck 3; in here you’ll find a magnificent super-King size bed, private his/hers bathrooms with an adjoining shower. On the main deck (Deck 2) there are four staterooms, all en-suite and with the option of queen beds, or twins. Two cabins are convertible and can sleep three guests.
