Lengthened by the yard to 164′ LOA with a stern extension that incorporates an Opacmare Transformer, and respendent in the same dark green paint for which she has always been known, superyacht Highlander’s profile has, however, been softened with some deft touches by the owners and their design team. The result is a stunning melding of the original Bannenburg lines with more contemporary features that look both classic and modern at the same time.

The yard replaced a significant amount of shell plating while extending the hull, and also installed Quantum zero-speed stabilizers. The paintwork was performed by Alpha One Yacht Refinishing.

“This project has been a great collaboration between the owners, their design team and the shipyard,” said the yard’s project manager Jack Schneider. “It is very rewarding to see an older vessel of historical significance restored to her former glory.”
