Edmiston and Company says the 162-foot Feadship Highlander has reduced her weekly base rates for charters this winter in the Caribbean.
Previously, Highlander was advertised at $210,000 during most weeks and $240,000 during holidays. Now, the regular rate is $180,000 and the holiday rate is $210,000. The savings to charter clients is about 15 percent, no matter the cruising dates.
Highlander launched in 1986 as The Highlander and became known around the world as the entertaining platform for original owner Malcolm Forbes. The Jon Bannenberg design got a new owner in 2013 and completed an extensive refit and extension at the Derecktor shipyard this past January. She then entered the charter market with a more contemporary transom design, an expanded sundeck, a contemporary interior décor, zero-speed stabilizers and an updated audiovisual system.
Accommodations are for 12 guests in seven staterooms, and a crew of 11 are on board.
