Sailors wanting a Catamaran Cruiser and/or Live Aboard Yacht
A 1997 Prout 37 Manta is now Available for Sale in Solomons, Maryland.
Prout 37 Catamarans were chosen as the #2 of the top 9 cruising catamarans of All Time by Cruising World Magazine.
More than 500 Prout 37s were built with hundreds having circumnavigated the world.
The Prout family started building boats in the 1950 through 2002 in Exeter UK, leading the way with design innovations, rugged construction and blue water safety. A major contributor to the popularity of cruising catamarans today.
The Prout Manta version was built in Richards Bay, South Africa and is basically the same catamaran as the 39 ft Escale model also from Prout. The Manta at 38 ft has a slightly shorter "sugar scoop" than the Escale model.
The "Reputation of Quality" of the Prout catamaran - It's a very long list but here are a few highlights:
1. Proven Ocean Crossing Catamaran - Sturdy, Seaworthy, and
Affordable. 100+ circumnavigations.
2. Mast is stepped further AFT with an excellent sail plan for short-
handed sailing and balance
3. Flat Keels and Narrow Beam for standard berths, easy haul outs and
4. Low Profile = Low Windage
5. "Solidly Built", strong, seaworthy and cosey down below.
6. Solid forward Bridge deck (no nets) making a very rigid and sturdy
boat with a large solid foredeck for working, playing and lounging.
