The 163-foot former Australian Navy vessel Plan B may not look like a traditional superyacht, but the converted explorer yacht has drawn the likes of Hollywood heartthrobs Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth as charter guests — and is now bound for far-off destinations where even they might be able to escape the paparazzi.

Newly announced management company Ocean Independence says Plan B will charter this summer in Norway, beginning in June.

The owner also will consider inquiries for charter in the Baltic Sea, Iceland and Greenland. Those are destinations where traditionally styled yachts are rarely, if ever, offered.

Plan B accommodates 12 guests in five staterooms. Two of the staterooms can convert from twins to doubles, as needed by the charter party. Lowest weekly base rate: $195,000
