Lovely example of a classic Prout Catamaran. Privately owned and never chartered, this catamaran is a three cabin owners’ version.  The owners’ suite is to starboard. 

The 45S Prout incorporates heavy duty Keels on each hull that protects the boat from groundings, protects the propellers and rudders, and, allows the boat to beached for maintenance!

This Catamaran is set up for extended and independent cruising and live aboard with the addition of 2800watts of solar panels, Relion Lithium Batteries, 300ft of main anchor chain, 2- life rafts, custom extended (2′) sugar scoops, all new AC’s and electronics, new Running rigging, etc., etc.

There is a big nav area with a nice chart table opposite on the port side. The galley is located Starboard side the salon. In the starboard hull are two  a guest cabins. On the Owner’s set up, the forward port hull houses the master head with a wash basin, separate shower room and dressing area.


Like most original Prouts, the 45 was set up with a cutter rig with the mast set well back for easy short-handed sailing and most of the lines running down the mast into the cockpit. With a smaller mainsail and a larger genoa, this makes her very easy to handle with a short handed crew or even on your own. I have seen some aero-rig set ups on the market.
