High Chaparral Location: Caribbean, Mediterranean | St Martin
Overview: 164ft Motor Yacht | 12 Guests | Feadship

Named after a prize-winning race horse, High Chaparral is arguably the finest Feadship of her type afloat. She offers outstanding accommodations for 10 guests (or 12 using the gym as a cabin with two Pullman berths), the latest in entertainment, state of the art ship's systems, optional helipad and a complete array of water sports equipment - all catered for by a highly professional charter crew.

All areas of the main deck benefit from low windows, especially the main deck lounge. The tone of understated luxury that pervades High Chaparral is immediately apparent in this open-plan space, where the formal dining area is situated to aft. Three sofas, upholstered in contrasting fabric types and leather, surround a giant coffee table. The fourth side of the square is a large bronze lacquered cabinet containing a plasma screen TV, part of a genuine surround sound cinematic experience. These delights are best savored on the lounging sofa opposite, with its oversize seating cushions.

The entire upper deck is full width with the exception of the wheelhouse, and the outcome in visual terms is most spectacular in the saloon. The massive curved glass doors leading out to the aft deck help create a memorable 180-degree vista, which can be enjoyed from three different seating arrangements in the saloon itself.

Other highlights of this space include two plasma televisions and a large bar topped in Giallo S. Cecilia marble. Further service options are provided by a spacious pantry with a direct lift connection to the galley below.

The motive for having such extensive entertainment facilities becomes clear at the flick of a switch. As the phenomenal double aft doors silently slide open, it feels as if the whole wall has disappeared. Combined with the full beam, the outside/inside feeling generated by the semi al fresco space is hugely impressive. It is also, of course, ideal for large parties.

As is the case indoors, the theme of comfort is very much to the fore throughout High Chaparral's imposing outdoor spaces, where teak decks play host to a broad selection of dining facilities, furniture and relaxation options. All outside deck areas have stereo sound, juke box and wireless internet access.

Because the aft section of the sun deck doubles as a helicopter landing pad, the onboard party has an enormous area to play with for the vast majority of the time. Features include shaded dining for up to 20 people, a BBQ, a dedicated bar with three stools, a large Jacuzzi and a convertible sun bed / dining / cocktail area forward. There is also lots more sunbathing available on either side and to aft, plus a plethora of shade for those who prefer a different form of chilling out.

There are also two distinctive areas on the bridge deck aft such is its size. Closer to the superstructure, a round table offers sheltered dining for up to 12 people, while the stern section sees three plush rattan sofas nestling around two coffee tables. There is also a full BBQ set-up. The main deck aft offers more shaded dining options.

On the lower deck, the lazarette stores a comprehensive collection of watersports equipment, including two Yamaha wave runners, windsurfer, water skis, wakeboards, inflatable tow-alongs, and lots of snorkeling and dive gear. A separate bathroom is included on the swimming platform, once again demonstrating how every detail has been taken into account on this exceptional vessel.

The owners stateroom is situated furthest forward on the main deck, and is entered via a small lobby/study area to starboard. Superb views are available on either side of the bedroom thanks to the large vertical windows - one can even watch the ocean lying in bed. A distinguished decorative scheme contrasts tortoiseshell lacquer cabinetry with various shades of white and brown.

There are relaxation areas either side of the room, ensuring the most is made of the full beam. Two separate bathrooms with Crema Marfill marble are found furthest forward, joined by a spacious dressing room and wardrobe.

Aft of the owner's stateroom on the port side is a gymnasium equipped with a low impact aerobic cross trainer and various other exercise facilities. Two Pullman bunks and other amenities mean the room can be easily converted into an extra cabin when chartering, or used by the owners for security or visiting staff members. A bathroom with a shower and toilet supports both the gym and the cabin concept.

The layout of the guest accommodations makes optimal use of the available space, with all four staterooms accessible via a central lobby. The two guest cabins forward have double beds, bathrooms and dressings rooms, while the aft cabins have twin beds and bathrooms.

High Chaparral is entering its fourth year as an established performer with the highest level of service from a dedicated and professional crew.
