After winning the NMMA international yacht design competition as an engineering student in 1996 Bill Prince worked as a design engineer for three of the world's premier yacht designers and builders; Michael Peters Yacht Design, America's Cup winner Ted Hood and Island Packet Yachts.
Recently Bill opened his own yacht design studio, Bill Prince Yacht Design, Inc. based in Safety Harbor, Florida.
The newest design to come from his office is a 43 meter (141') tri-deck motoryacht with contemporary looks that respect the sea and will stand the test of time. Her tastefully proportioned exterior surrounds a five-stateroom owner's party and crew accommodations for seven. Careful attention has been paid to the circulation of crew to maximize their efficiency and minimize interference with onboard guests.
BPYD is currently developing a 23-meter motor yacht for a Canadian client and a contemporary 14-meter center console dayboat.
