Seriously, I can't see any justification for those 3 engines.
Most of the Prouts I looked at had either rotten bulkheads, waterloged rudders, dodgy condition drive legs, sagging/ peeling vinyl headliners or all of above.
I also have personal experience crossing the Pacific in comoany with a Prout Manta
38 which is consider a newer "refined" Prout design. I was sailing a much overloaded 35' 1975 IOR monohull
and easily bested the Manta
on all passages.
Was aboard the Manta watching a DVD
in the Tuamotus when the wind
kicked up. The chop in the ANCHORAGE during a squall began hitting the underwing so hard I thought we had drug anchor
and hit the reef. A quick look outside revealed all OK and the skipper
went on to explain I should see her at sea! His wife then mentioned the large quantities of whiskey required to get to sleep due to the noise
. And they were sailing with 2 children!
My point was not to overly disparage the Prouts but point out for me the price
of building my own custom boat was less than the initial cost of a well worn Prout.
