Broker's Comments

The Prout range of catamarans are well proven, cruising multihulls, with a seaworthy design, solid build and pleasing performance. The Prout Quest is an ideal coastal cruising yacht, with spacious accommodation, ease of handling and shallow draught and in the right conditions capable of longer trips. Being a multihull, the boat is capable of passage speeds around 7-9 knots, depending on conditions and sails surprising well upwind.

The quest has plenty of accommodation, throughout the two hulls, with four cabins and a large saloon area. There is excellent standing headroom in the hulls, where the galley (starboard) and navigation station (port) are located. Three Cabins feature private berths and the fourth cabin provides a spacious, private heads and shower area. The engine is sited outside of the accommodation and powers a steerable leg, giving these boats excellent manoeuvrability. The rig is straightforward and control lines led to the spacious and deep cockpit for extra ease and comfort. There is a good sized deck at the stern and a huge fore-deck, making sail handling and anchoring comfortable and an ideal platform for sunbathing and enjoying the views.

This version has been well maintained throughout its life, having significant investment in the last few years. When I visited the boat, I could see a tidy and reliable cruising boat, with plenty of comfortable accommodation, for many more years of a variety of comfortable sailing.

Capable of 9 knots consistently with wind abeam or astern
