Highlander launched in 1986 as The Highlander and became known around the world as the entertaining platform for original owner Malcolm Forbes. The Jon Bannenberg design got a new owner in 2013 and completed an extensive refit and extension at the Derecktor shipyard.  She then entered the charter market with a more contemporary transom design, an expanded sundeck, a contemporary interior décor, zero-speed stabilizers and an updated audiovisual system. Accommodations are for 12 guests in seven staterooms, and a crew of 11 are on board. Originally built for Malcolm Forbes by De Vries in 1986, the Bannenberg design Feadship was long seen as one of the best-known symbols of big business, cruising the east coast of the USA as a corporate yacht for Forbes magazine. Recently purchased by her new owners, HIGHLANDER (ex The Highlander) underwent a comprehensive refit at Derecktor Florida including a full interior relook, lengthening the hull, major mechanicals and full paint. From Liz Taylor, Robert De Niro and Harrison Ford to Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and HRH Prince Charles, the guest lists for The Highlander read like a who’s who of the world’s glamorous movie stars and heads of state. Today, HIGHLANDER offers well-appointed accommodation for 12 guests in 7 staterooms. Timeless styling, original pop art works, beautiful furnishings and sumptuous interior features throughout her living areas to create an elegant and comfortable atmosphere. HIGHLANDER’S impressive leisure and entertainment facilities make her the ideal charter yacht for socializing and entertaining with family and friends.
