Prout Snowgoose 37 Elite ‘Gatablanca’

Prout Snowgoose 37 Elite ‘Gatablanca’

‘Barn-find Cruiser’

All car collectors dream of the ‘barn-find’. That rare car, found in a dusty garage, where a true classic has been undisturbed and all that needs doing is a new coat of paint and some basic work to bring a
classic to life.

Meet Gatablanca. A Prout Snowgoose 37 Elite from 1991, that is, the closest equivalent to a barn find you will unearth in the yachting world. Owned by the same family since it was new, ‘Gata’ has had very few ‘upgrades’ since she was new. Her engines have been well maintained, her electrics not overloaded with TV’s and new gadgets. Her hull and tackle are all ready to sail. She has recently (2018) been pulled and her hull treated for osmosis, all her seacocks have been replaced (the original brass Kingstons swapped out for plastic). Her hull was repainted and re-fiberglassed where needed.
She is ready and waiting for a new owner who will be pleased to make their own cosmetic choices. She needs painting, and some work on the interior – after almost 30 years at sea, everyone needs fresh carpet. She could use upgraded electronics and navigation, but, for Southern Spain, she’s ready to go.
