The leg­endary High­lander, de­signed by Fead­ship in 1986 for Mal­com Forbes, is now avail­able for pri­vate char­ter dur­ing the 2015 Fes­ti­val de Cannes. She boasts an al­ready im­pres­sive guest list hav­ing hosted stars from Liz Tay­lor, Har­ri­son Ford and Robert De Niro to HRH Prince Charles.

The 162 ft lux­ury su­per yacht was bought by Amer­i­can fi­nancier Robert De Guardi­olo in 2012 has un­der­gone a full ren­o­va­tion. The High­lander is a yacht like no other, it’s per­son­i­fied glam­our and time­less styling form the per­fect back­drop for a sum­mer va­ca­tion.

The in­te­rior is fit­ted out with seven lux­ury cab­ins sleep­ing up to twelve guests. The cab­ins in­clude a Master Suite and its very own VIP State­room. The High­lander of­fers some lux­ury ex­tras too with its own he­li­copter land­ing pad, two speed­boats, two jet skis, scuba div­ing equip­ment, an on­board gym and a pri­vate mas­sage room.

The lux­u­ri­ous in­te­rior fea­tures orig­i­nal pop art, bright­en­ing the oth­er­wise muted colour pal­ette of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing teak, mar­ble, gran­ite and oak. Chaises lounges de­signed by John Hut­ton line the top deck above the graph­i­cal ‘H’ floor­ing. The main sa­lon has play­ful art­work lift­ing the over­all muted colour pal­ette on dis­play through­out. The Edel­man wrapped leather bench forms the per­fect fix for ev­ery fash­ion­ista and the decked din­ing area has a col­lab­o­ra­tion of highly sought af­ter de­sign­ers in­clud­ing chairs by the one and only Philippe Starck that re­flect the de­sir­able view be­yond. The me­dia room even has a vin­tage Le Cor­bus­ier chaise lounge. The High­lander has a lux­ury seat­ing col­lec­tion that would ri­val any de­signer’s dreams.

The at­ten­tion to de­tail is ex­quis­ite with win­dows on the higher decks of­fer­ing a swivel open­ing move­ment to al­low the sea breeze in. The ma­te­ri­als are noth­ing but the best, gran­ite ranges from Brazil­ian gran­ite in the main sa­lon to Ti­ta­nium black gran­ite in the pow­der room.

She is cur­rently avail­able to hire from €160,000/week and is cur­rently re­sid­ing in the Mediter­ranean.
