Madame Butterfly was built in 1986 as a 3/4 Tonner designed by Rob Humphries. She was 3rd in the world championships when she was named Decosol. Madame Butterfly has done 10 Kings Cups, 5 x 1st, 2 x 2nd, 2x 3rd and a 4th. She has also done 5 Race Weeks, 1 x 1st, 3 x 2nd and an 8th (retired due to breakages).

The carbon / kevlar hull was stripped and redesigned with all new appendages and was in essence new in 2006 by Rocket Yachts. She had a new keel and rudder by Hugh Wellbourne. The rig was renewed and sail area was increased by 12% upwind and 35 % downwind for the light conditions in SE Asia. She also had a completely new deck layout.

Despite being known for her devastating light airs performance she won IRC 2 in the latest K.C. in 20 + knots of wind and was 1st in 8 out of 11 races with 3 2nd places despite being the smallest boat in the class. She contains 4 berths and one Jabsco flushing toilet. She has new no.1 and 3 jibs, a decent main and multiple spinnakers.
