Identify a boat from my description?

If anybody will humor me on this question, I'd appreciate it. We live in Beaufort, SC and mess around in boats regularly. We've got a 21 foot center console motorboat and a Catalina 25 and, depending on the wind and what kind of day on the water we feel like having, will use both quite regularly. Our normal boating area is the Coosaw River which is part of the ICW.

On Saturday, we were following the ICW north on the motorboat to go to Edisto Beach for the day. Ahead of us, from a distance, looked like the stern of a rather large catamaran. When we got closer however, we discovered that it was, in fact, a very large motorsailing ketch (i would guess 60 feet or more) with an incredibly wide beam. It had an open stern, the captain was at the helm on an elevated deck, sort of like a flybridge I guess, and the boat looked to have a pretty modern design overall. I hate that I don't recall the name of the boat. The boat is probably still in the region but I'm guessing she is part of the endless stream of cruisers we see headed north at this time of year every year.

Any guesses as to what kind of boat this was? It really impressed me and I'm annoyed that I don't know what it was!
