NEW PHOTOS – April 2016
This Prout 38 was purchased by the present owner new and fully completed by Prouts yard at Canvey Island in the UK in late 1998. She was used as their Southampton Boat Show exhibit for that year. She was built to the ‘Interior Upgrade’ specs as detailed on the original specification sheets as well as having the following extras:
- Simpson Lawrence electric anchor winch
- Shore power connections and fittings
- Stern anchor and fittings
- Simpson davits
- Mosquito screens to all port-lights
Autohelm ST7000 automatic pilot with linked-in depth sounder, wind speed , direction indicator and hull speed indicator.
Latterly she has been fitted with:
- 5kva 220v generator
- Water de-salinator
- Additional fridge compressor to the large cool-box in the forward starboard cabin
- Electric head in main shower room to port
- 12-220v pure sine wave inverter
- 4-man Zodiac life-raft
- Storm jib and cruising chute
- 9ft ‘Carib’ inflatable dingy and 4hp outboard
She carries a large variety of spares as well as a full compliment of domestic and galley equipment.
After the Boat Show this Prout 38 was sailed to the Mediterranean and kept in various marinas in Mallorca (Spain’s Balearic Islands) where the owners were living at the time and used as a family boat on weekends and the usual summer cruise. In 2003, upon their retirement, they moved aboard and sailed her first to Gibraltar, then the Canary Islands and finally to the Caribbean where they based themselves and lived aboard for the following three years cruising all the Eastern Caribbean islands. Latterly they settled on Bequia – part of St Vincent and the Grenadines – where they moved ashore only then using the Prout 38 for occasional cruises.
From the owners:
The Prout 38 is an extremely safe and solidly constructed boat. In all the years of sailing she has never given us a moments concern despite our meeting the usual variety of storms that every sailor encounters. She has been constantly maintained (both engines having been re-built, port in 2006 and starboard in 2009) and thanks to Prouts hand-laid GRP hull, there never has been any signs of osmosis and the hulls are today as good as they were when laid down in 1998. Whilst she could use a little TLC, this is only to cosmetic detail and does not detract from the overall quality of the craft.
