HIGHLANDER 163' Feadship 1986/2014

HIGHLANDER is one of the most famous & recognizable yachts on the water -- it is one of a kind. Custom built by the renowned Dutch
shipyard Feadship to the highest bespoke standards and designed by the creator of modern yacht design, Jon Bannenberg, for the
publisher Malcolm Forbes, it was launched in 1986. In 2014, this legendary yacht completed a total redesign and refit, updating it for
today’s standards.
The iconic steel hulled Bannenberg designed Feadship HIGHLANDER is now fully modernized and has an open interior floor plan. With 7
staterooms, an on-deck Master Suite with His and Her bathrooms, it sleeps 13 and carries a crew of 11 to meet your every need. It's
steel hull cruises comfortably and economically on Detroit diesel engines up to 16 knots.
HIGHLANDER is a brilliant blend of Malcolm Forbes fabulous personality and Jon Bannenberg’s futuristic design genius. It's angular high
hull profile, the glass enclosed Sky Lounge and raised bow was decades ahead of its time. Entirely bespoke, and built for glamorous
entertaining & transatlantic travel, it had a who’s who of glamour & power on board its decks. They traveled the globe with Malcolm
Forbes on HIGHLANDER -- from Bora Bora, to then Communist China, Thailand, Alaska, New York City, London, France, the Philippines
and more. Presidents, royalty, Hollywood, dictators, rock stars and athletes all came. Elizabeth Taylor was often found sunbathing on
the top deck, with Forbes’ Harley Davidsons aft and his green “Capitalist Tool’ helicopter parked on its heli-pad at her disposal.
In 2014, a massive 2-year refit was completed by an experienced designer and Feadship owner. The steel hull was extended, all
equipment and mechanicals upgraded, massive Quantum zero speed stabilizers installed, modern technology introduced, world satellites
and entertainment systems included.
HIGHLANDER’s famous Bannenberg profile was kept intact and lengthened by the new extension, his brilliant modern exterior lines
strengthened with new sharp edges and streamlined stainless steel guard rails. An extensive new exterior paint job saw a deeper, dark
green hull color with a contrasting crisp white yacht body.
All exterior and interior spaces were redesigned for today’s modern family, extended family, children, and friends to meet their every
entertaining need and desire.
HIGHLANDER has 7 en suite staterooms for 13 guests. The Master Cabin has been moved to the Main Deck forward, and features 180-
degree views, white Anigre wood veneer walls with a floating wide California King bed in exotic burled pale grey wood, extensive closets,
His and Her marble bathrooms, and a separate spacious private office.
Below are 6 updated and renovated Guest Suites all with en suite marble bathrooms. The entire below deck hall & guest cabins have
been recovered in exotic white African figured Anigre wood veneer. There is a VIP king stateroom with jacuzzi, separate shower, and
walk in closet; 2 queen bed staterooms; 2 double twin bed staterooms; and a single twin room for nanny, teacher, security, personal
assistant as needed. Several cabins have pullman bunks for even more flexibility. Bannenberg’s custom faucets and exotic stones have
been restored, while the original bedside tables with exotic stone tops & tooled leather drawers emblazoned with Scotland’s Highland
stag have been restored. A new massage room has also been added, while the original mirrored walk-in wine cellar has been restored.
The guest hall has a new below counter refrigerator for guest’s convenience.
