Superyacht ‘Plan B’ Adventures to Patagonia

By Rebecca Bradbury   29 November 2016

The 50m/164ft charter yacht ‘Plan B’ from the Australian Navy is available for January charters in the wild and wonderful cruising grounds of Patagonia, located on the southern tip of South America.

Originally launched in 1973 as HMAS Flinders for the Australian Navy, Plan B has since transformed into the luxury yacht she is today. Since her refit in 2011, she has circumnavigated the globe three times, taking charter guests to some of the remotest corners of the ocean.

Engineered for blue water cruising, she is an ideal choice and one of the only superyachts available for a charter vacation in the beautifully desolate waters of Patagonia, which encompasses the dramatic and mysterious coastline of Chile and Argentina in South America.

Discerning travellers aboard Plan B will be able to take in penguin-only inhabited islands, glacier-laden coasts, and striking backdrops of the wondrous Andes mountain range. Indeed, she offers the chance for yacht-goers to truly get off the beaten track.

The sublime region offers a multitude of once-in-a-lifetime activities to enjoy. Whale watch off Puerto Madryn, step ashore for glacier hiking in the Tierra del Duego National Park, go wine tasting in Santa Cruz and get up close to penguins at the Cabos Dos Bahias nature reserve.

After a busy day exploring the amazing sights of Patagonia, guests can retreat into the comfort of expedition yacht Plan B. Styled by New Zealand-based Tracey Barnier-Willis Design, the living areas boast a unique, urban-inspired ambience which radiates understated luxury.

Dark woods and industrial steel accents combine with sensuous fabrics in warm, natural hues while the generous exterior spaces boast beautiful Polynesian pieces and styling, with a selection of partial enclosures offering protection from the elements yet still enabling incredible views of the awe-inspiring landscape.
