The owners of the 162-foot Feadship motoryacht Highlander are at it again, offering a big incentive deal for upcoming charter dates.
Edmiston and Company tells me that during the Presidents’ Day holiday in the United States, Highlander is giving 10 days for the price of seven in the Caribbean. The charter dates are February 7-17, based on the weekly base rate of $150,000.
This is just the most recent incentive deal aboard Highlander, which also offered Caribbean discounts during Christmas and New Year’s. The owners also gave incentive rates last summer in the Mediterranean.
Highlander entered the charter market in 2014 with a great deal of publicity. She originally was built as The Highlander in 1986 for media titan Malcolm Forbes. She is a Jon Bannenberg design that had people agog even before they learned about her guest list, which included movie stars like Robert De Niro and world leaders like Margaret Thatcher. The yacht not only had traditional staterooms and guest areas but also boasted conference rooms for events.
The new owners added 12 feet to Highlander‘s stern in the recent refit, allowing her transom to have a more traditional look with better access to the water. The sundeck also was extended, and the main deck is now totally focused on guest relaxation instead of corporate events. Zero-speed stabilizers were added along with a new sound and video system, and more, to bring the yacht fully up to date for charter.
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Highlander or help you book the newly announced incentive deal for Presidents’ Day in the Caribbean.
