The pilothouse motoryacht, a 49-foot Bill Prince design that won the National Marine Manufacturers Association's international yacht design award in 1995, was lengthened by 3 feet, giving her more shaded space on deck and a slimmer length-to-beam ratio for more efficient cruising.

The yacht has a new "modern classic" profile and a refined interior arrangement, according to Bill Prince Yacht Design. With new direct-injected twin diesels, fuel economy has been improved by 15 percent and cruising range by 20 percent.

The original concept appeared in the April 1996 issue of Yachting magazine.
