Prout ranger 31

Hi James,
There is one for sale in the Netherlands:
Prout Ranger Kajuitcatamaran bj. 1974 te koop op www.botentekoop.nl
Also my father had one in the 70's and I sailed it with him, and was even allowed to go sailing with it with classmates when I was around 17 years old.

It is not very fast, it has a low mast, the Iroquois is a sportier yacht. The Ranger's rating is more favourable, so that in stronger winds (when the Iroquois has to reef and the Prout not yet) my father has even once won the 24 hour IJsselmeer race in the Netherlands, winning from various Iroquois.

Regards,
Jef
(having a Mahe 36)
