General Comments

The Prout name has been synonymous with quality yacht construction since its founding in 1954 by Roland and Francis Prout. In 1964 it was a Prout catamaran that became the first multi-hull to circumnavigate the globe. Prouts are synonymous with safety, strength, reliability and comfort. Murungaru was built for the current owner by Prout in their UK factory in 2001. She commenced her circumnavigation from Falmouth, England in April 2001 and has since sailed to the West Indies, South America, Falklands Islands, Cape Horn, Pacific Islands, New Zealand, Australia, Indian Ocean and is presently in South Africa. She is fully equipped and self sufficient for long distance cruising.
