Manufacturer Provided Description
Packed full of innovative features, the Prout 45 has wing keels, diagonal torsion control bulkheads and a unique structural system, technology used to make cruising easier and safer. She is easily handled by a shorthanded crew, with all controls led to the cockpit where excellent all-round visibility makes handling in close quarters quite easy. The aft steps and reasonable gunwale height make access from the boat to the shore, or jetty quite simple. The aft-stepped mast, unique in a craft of this size, ensures simple and safe sail-handling with the minimum of effort. All Prout catamarans are designed and constructed by yachtsmen to combine technology with traditional boat building skills. Prout Catamarans was the first boat builder in the UK to receive Lloyds ISO 9002 quality standard recognition. Prout prides themselves in keeping in touch with owners through an excellent after-sales service and a strong owners association.

General Construction - Strength, essential in a catamaran design, is achieved by the one-piece hull and deck moldings bonded together with the bulkhead locations at strategic positions forming deep box sections, thus producing a monocoque shell system.

Hull - The hull is molded using the latest molding techniques to minimize the risk of osmosis. Gelcoat is of the isophthalic type. The first layers of glass are powder bound hand-laid with isophthalic resins using the Scott Bader System which is guaranteed for five years against osmosis. Incorporated in the lay-up are biaxial fibers. High-stress areas are reinforced. The hull is of sandwich construction using end grain balsa above the waterline.

Deck - The deck molding uses top-quality Lloyds approved materials and incorporates end grain balsa sandwich to give strength where required and is also reinforced at high-stress areas and where through-deck fittings are sited. Shroud plate areas are extensively reinforced. Incorporated in the deck lay-up are the latest biaxial materials for strength and weight saving. Forward deck areas use trampoline nets.

Bulkheads - All main bulkheads are substantially bonded to the hull and the deck with woven rovings. The bulkheads are located at strategic points to give compressional and torsional strength where required. Some are of composite construction, vacuum-bagged for effective weight saving.

Buoyancy - There are built-in buoyancy compartments both forward and aft in each hull and the water tanks form a double bottom system in the vessel ensuring buoyancy should she be holed.

Mast Support System - Mast loads are transmitted via an advanced HE30 aluminum space frame support system integrated with the rigging.

Steering - Twin elliptical semi-balanced GRP rudders. Twin s-s tillers mounted on top of s-s shaft. Alloy tiller connection tube. Hydraulic steering system with bypass valve. Large steering wheel. Access hatches to emergency steering position for fitting the emergency tiller.

Spars - Anodized aluminum alloy mast and boom. Combined masthead tricolor and all-round white light. Combined deck flood and steaming light.

Everything about this Prout owner's version model seems larger than her 45' size. The roomy cockpit with folding leaf table and moulded seating provides entertainment space for 8 or more plus stern perch seats.

Very inviting interior with lovely wood decor and lots of natural light. Honeycombed shades on all windows control brightness and privacy as desired. Salon U-shaped settee and stools surrounds beautiful wood table to entertain 8 or more people comfortably for dinner or socializing.
