Measuring 49.50 m (162' 5"), the Feadship charter yacht HIGHLANDER ( ex The Highlander) was originally launched in 1986 for Malcolm Forbes and, thanks to her distinct green hull, represents one of the most instantly recognizable superyachts around the world. Superyacht HIGHLANDER received a refit in 2021 and accommodates up to 12 charter guests in 7 deluxe staterooms and has an attentive, professional crew of 11.

Originally, the luxury yacht HIGHLANDER was built with a steel hull in order to suit the need for long-range cruising to destinations such as China, Alaska or Bora Bora. Her original layout included a large reception and vast conference areas, allowing Forbes to entertain countless dignitaries, heads of state and business leaders in supreme style.

After more than a quarter of a century, The Highlander yacht was offered for sale. In 2014 she was re-launched following an extensive refit by Derecktor. HIGHLANDER’s profile was modernized taking advantage of her representative angular lines originally designed by Bannenberg. Spaces were adjusted to suit the needs of her new Owners, their family and charter guests.

The enormous refit project included upgrading and modernizing all the mechanics while extending the stern by 12 feet to create a contemporary transom and accommodate a lifting transformer platform. Charter yacht HIGHLANDER’s top deck was also extended forward, creating an excellent al fresco relaxation area.

In 2021 the yacht received a further refit, featuring a beautiful interior, which open interior spaces to play to the strengths of the vessel as an unparalleled charter yacht.

'...total originality in yacht design has become more difficult to attain following Jon Bannenberg’s masterful levels of creative daring.' - “I don’t want to lead everything back to my dad — but it’s well known and accepted that, whether it’s his big round windows, or certain lines, or a way of treating wings on a superstructure, they all inspired many people and I think that’s fair game. I think all people’s design processes, whether subliminal or not, are recalling something — whether it’s something that’s stirred, or triggered something, or sparked an idea, or an unintentional homage to someone.” - Dickie Bannenberg talks of yacht design and his father Jon Bannenberg's groundbreaking work.
