The 50m (163ft) explorer yacht Plan B has been sold in a pre-Christmas deal, with Will Christie of Christie Yachts representing the seller and Merle A. Wood of Merle Wood & Associates representing the buyer.

Christie, who represented the buyer of the 95m Lurssen Kismet earlier this year,  said concluding the deal for Plan B is “a great way to finish our second full year of business”.

The Briton described Plan B, which has a 6,000 nautical mile range and carries an Airbus H145 helicopter, as a “remarkable” yacht.

“Selling a yacht based remotely in the Pacific has its challenges, but we are pleased that we have been able to present her many unique attributes in order to get this fantastic vessel sold in a relatively short space of time,” said Christie.

“This is a great way to finish our second full year of business with the sale of a number of notable yachts, including the 95m Lurssen Kismet and the 52m CRN, Ciao. We look forward to 2024 with the expansion of our team.”

The 746GT steel-hulled Plan B was built as a military vessel at Williamstown Naval Dockyard in Australia in 1973 before converting to an explorer yacht. She also features two tenders, two jet skis and a beach landing craft.
