Overview

Highlander Yacht Charter

Originally built for Malcolm Forbes, charter yacht HIGHLANDER was long seen as one of the best-known symbols of big business, cruising the East Coast of the US as a corporate yacht for Forbes magazine.

From Liz Taylor, Robert De Niro and Harrison Ford to Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and HRH Prince Charles, the guest lists for HIGHLANDER (ex-THE HIGHLANDER) read like a who’s who of the world’s most glamorous and important people.

Built by Feadship De Vries in 1986, the Jon Bannenberg-designed motor yacht was recently purchased by her new owners. HIGHLANDER underwent a comprehensive refit at Derecktor in Florida in 2014, which included full interior re-styling, a lengthening of the hull, major mechanical updates, and receiving a plush paint job.

Today, HIGHLANDER offers well-appointed accommodation for 12 charter guests in seven staterooms. Her guests are well attended to by 11 crew members.

Her iconic exterior styling by Bannenberg and dark hull make this yacht a head turner in any port. Inside, original pop art on the walls, 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 socialising and entertaining with family and friends. She’s also a favourite to charter for the Cannes film festival.

Highlander
  • The yacht has been an iconic location for some of the world’s greatest political powerbrokers and socialites. Its distinctive history is reason enough for chartering but I think many people will also be attracted by her extensive facilities, so that they can entertain just as Forbes did.

    Nicholas Edmiston.  Chairman

  • The yacht offers fantastic facilities starting from a massage room to a disco lounge. The sporty guests will enjoy the wide selection of watertoys whilst the other guests will relax around the jacuzzi or in the Media room. I have had numerous clients chartering the yacht and they all enjoyed both the yacht and the professional crew on board.
