Bill Prince has a design vision that flawlessly integrates the beauty of classic yachts with very forward thinking technology. Thus his projects evoke a romantic classicism in a modern sleeve. Prince is also widely recognized as a primary resource of knowledge about classic yachts, which he transmits to an eager public via his popular publication, Classic Yacht, a must read for vintage boat enthusiasts.
On the design side, Prince is presently working on several interesting projects, from Korea to Kuwait, that include developing a 63ft. ultra contemporary motoryacht for Hyundai Yachts in South Korea. This boat will be constructed of GRP and will be marketed internationally.
The lower deck of the new design benefits from a generous beam that endows interiors with the roominess of a larger yacht. Accommodations for six guests are located forward, and a congenial salon amidships provides ample seating on an L-shape sofa and comfortable easy chairs. The protected aft deck is the featured dining area, a logical design element given that most owners and guests prefer al fresco dining, weather providing.
The helm is located on the upper deck and takes advantage of the magnificent 360 degree views afforded by near seamless windows. Here, the built in settee positioned around the table provides cordial seating with a panoramic view. The open aft deck, outfitted with lounge chairs, beckons a read or a bit sun worship.
