Seller's Description

Proud 38 catamaran For sale a floating Caribbean cottage for $78,600 US. Before you respond to this posting read it through and dont ask if its still available because if the posting is up- it is and I will not respond to that question. In addition dont ask if its my lowest price- if you are interested send me details of your offer keeping in mind I am not looking to hold it, finance it, enter into a partnership or a trade. Details: My Prout 38 is a 1999 sloop rigged Fiberglass catamaran sailboat moored in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and is being offered for sale on a as is basis and I am selling because of my age and some medical factors. Im the second owner and its a 3 cabin design but was not a bare boat charter vessel. The Prout is a British built craft constructed for a blue water sailing and offers many amenities and features that only a Cat can provide for sailing and off the grid living. This tiny home features a step down galley on the starboard side with a gas stove, 2 counters for food prep, double fresh water sink a good size pantry and a number of cupboards for storage. Theres a separate large 55 litre high efficiency electric chest fridge for cold food storage. Aft is the second sleeping cabin with with a queen size bed and its own adjacent head and wet shower. Forward is a smaller cabin with a double bed with ample underneath storage lockers. The stepping up the main level is also accessible from the outside cockpit via folding door. Theres a 360 degree view around the horseshoe dining table with seating for 6-8 people easily with more storage underneath and with 4 large windows of which 2 open to provide loads of circulation and fresh air. Theres a navigation and computer desk adjacent with a lift up top, plus a potential for 2 more seats; along with the VHF radio/AIS and Navman chart plotter. Also in the salon is an overhead skylight and the primary electrical cabinet and 2 massive storage lockers beside the forward fresh water tank. All the interior lights have been changed to LED.

Equipment: The starboard side has the main owners cabin with a king size bed connected by a passageway for more storage and accompanying bathroom with an electric head and wet shower. Further forward is a spacious garage to store lubricants, cleaning supplies and larger items such the outboard and inflatable 3m dinghy. You can find all of the technical specs on the web and Ill list a few updates to this boat. There are 2 Kubota/Beta Marine 30hp diesels with sail drive with about 600 hours on one and 1900 hours on the other (primarily charging engine). All lines lead into the cockpit for easy single handed sailing. A new mainsail was just purchased and has yet to be raised and theres a lazy Jacks system and 120% furling headsail. The hydraulic wheel and helm station has the normal marine gauges and the auto pilot, plus a new Garmin chart plotter to supplement the iPad navigation software. The aft has 2 sugar scoops for easy access to the water and boarding ladder and dinghy and theres a fresh water shower hose. The aft davits can lift the dinghy and engine for storage and travel and the solar panel is mounted on top. Theres no forward trampoline instead theres a full solid deck. An electric power windless is coupled with a delta anchor and has plenty of chain. Ive had this boat for about 7 years but due to physical and medical conditions I am now putting it on the market. The price reflects the current

Hull Speed
10.1 kn
Classic: 7.87 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

10.1 knots
Classic formula: 7.87 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16-20: good performance

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
100-200: light

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
<20: lightweight racing boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
