The 50 metre Feadship motor yacht Highlander, listed for sale by Mark Elliott at IYC, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Tassos Papantoniou of Torrance Yachts.
Custom built in steel and aluminium by Dutch shipyard Feadship to the highest standards and designed by the creator of modern yacht design, Jon Bannenberg , she was launched in 1986. In 2014, this legendary yacht completed a total redesign and refit, updating it for today’s standards.
Accommodation is for up to 13 guests in seven cabins comprising a main deck master suite, VIP suite, two doubles, two twins and a single cabin, all with marble en suite bathroom facilities.
During the 2014 refit, interior entertaining spaces were completely opened-up and feature rare woods, wide planked dark wood floors, and luxurious stones - creating a light and modern open feel throughout. The main saloon is now full beam, veneered in exotic white African anigre, while the central stairs are in Amazonian leathered stone floating between wavy walnut veneered curved walls. A new media room features surround sound and new custom floor to ceiling glass doors that fold completely open to the main aft deck, creating one continuous entertaining space.
Her top deck has been extended forward, with built-in seating, sunbathing and bar, while a new Jacuzzi overlooks the glass ceilinged sky lounge. The helicopter pad now doubles as a round sun deck floating over the sea. The middle deck now has a sizable new sunbathing area – perfect for a late afternoon nap.
She is powered by a pair of Detroit Diesel 900hp engines for a cruising speed of 12 knots.
Highlander was asking $8,500,000.
