The best known symbol of the big business

Designed by Bannenberg Feadship, the Highlander is distinguished by its timeless and luxurious style. Decorated with original pieces of the Pop Art, adds to its interior magnificent furniture delicately worked and sumptuous seats in its living areas, to create a comfortable atmosphere in its seven cabins that have the capacity to house up to 12 guests. With its amazing facilities for relaxing and entertain make this the perfect yacht to socialize and entertain the guests, it was originally built in 1986 with Malcolm Forbes vision for carrying on important business meetings: sailing the East coast of USA as a corporate yacht for the Forbes Magazine.  






The Highlander received personalities such as Liz Taylor, Robert de Niro and Harrison Ford, as well as important world leaders such as Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan and Prince Charles. 

With the recent acquisition of this vessel, its new owners made an integral refit in Derecktor, Florida, including a redesign of the interior, extension of the hull, mechanical major changes and complete painting. Today, its interior looks spectacular; the refinement in its materials was preserved, as well as the care of the art pieces that give the yacht its eclectic character. 





To its massive platform, the two James Bond style tenders give the yacht a unique and distinctive touch. 

The crew is outstanding for its attention and service levels. There is a special area for the kids with lots of toys and two seabobs. There is also a Yoga instructor on board. 

With areas with different atmospheres inside and out, the yacht functions for a small intimate group and also for having a larger number of people in certain key areas of the yacht (Main deck, Fly deck, media room).
