Prout 39 Escale specs/documentation/scantlings

Hi all, I'm considering the purchase of a Prout 39. My broker has concerns that this particular boat is much heavier than she should be, but I'm having difficulty judging. Specs quoted on the Interwebz vary wildly. Does anyone have access to any original design documents / drawings / manuals / specifications, particularly as to the design waterline and displacement? In fact any docs or info about the Prout 39 would be much appreciated. Thanks! david

Re: Prout 39 Escale specs/documentation/scantlings

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, David.

Check out the Prout Owner’s Assoc ➥ http://www.michaelbriant.com/prout_o...ssociation.htm

And ➥ http://features.boats.com/boat-conte...ing-catamaran/

Different layouts and equipage might be expected to result in differing displacements.

I think we can safely assume that my Prout knowledge is on par with "everything I know about women".....

The one thing I DO know about women... Is that I was not supposed to find that comment inducing as much laughter as it did...
