Iconic Highlander available for charter


The Feadship Charter Division has become central agent for charter bookings on the iconic Feadship M/Y Highlander. Launched as The Highlander in 1986 for Malcolm Forbes, the green-hulled motoryacht is one of the world’s most instantly recognizable superyachts. Recently refit at Derecktor, the 162-foot (49m) yacht went through sea trials in January and will be delivered to her new owners in mid-February.

The refit included upgrading all the mechanics while extending the stern by 12 feet to create a contemporary transom and accommodate a lifting transformer platform. The top deck has also been extended forward.

The new interior changes the yacht from a corporate entertainment boat to a yacht for private use. The entire main deck was stripped back, floors, ceilings, and walls removed, and contemporary white Angire and dark wenge interiors installed. The new master stateroom is forward with two new master bathrooms. There are six guest suites with en suite baths.

Quantum zero-speed stabilizers have been added, as well as a new pilot house, extensive wi-fi facilities and a new audio-video system.

She will be available for charter in the Med beginning in May.
