The Prout Snowgoose 37 is a solid, capable world cruiser with a proven track record. It's designed for short-handed sailing which a cruising couple would find it very easy to manage.

700 Prout catamarans have been built and 100+ boats have circumnavigated. The Snowgoose is one of the most successful production catamarans ever built.

Construction
The Snowgoose 37 is a heavyweight with a displacement of 11,000 pounds.

The hulls, which include molded stub keels are solid fiberglass.

The bridgedeck is also solid GRP that provides rigidity between the hulls which a single crossbar can’t match.

Control
The bulkhead-mounted wheel is to starboard in the cockpit.

The low profile design offers unobstructed visibility from the helm, even with a full bimini and dodger enclosure.

All sail controls are led to the cockpit and there is a bulkhead-mounted Barient winch to hoist the main.

Reefing can be carried out without leaving the cockpit. Heavy weather sailing is extremely safe for a Snowgoose.

Layout
This Snowgoose 37 Elite has the family layout option which includes a full queen berth forward and two spacious double cabins aft.

Another double berth can be created with the saloon table lowered. This boat can easily accommodate 8 adults onboard.

Zenity was built in 1993 and has been substantially upgraded by its present owner during 2010/2011 which include all late model electronics, new canvas, new upholstery, new solar panels & AGM battery banks.

Detail specs & photo gallery are available via email.

Asking price: US$150,000.

Sailboat-Cruising.com adds:

The firm of G Prout & Sons Ltd was a partnership started by Geoffrey Prout and his two sons, Roland and Francis in 1935. The business was shelved during World War (1939 - 45), following which they took up production again of their range of folding dinghies, small folding sailboats and canoes. Catamaran development evolved through lashing two canoes together!

Prout Catamarans was founded in 1954 by Roland and Francis Prout from a boatyard at Canvey on the East Coast of England. In 50 years of production over 2,400 cruising catamarans were built.

Probably their best known models were the 31 foot Quest, the 37 foot Snowgoose (of which the Snowgoose 'Elite' was the top-of-the-range model) and the 50 foot Quasar.

A Time-Honoured Cruising Catamarans
by: Dick McClary

Many years ago (in the mid-80's) I remember being aboard a Prout Snowgoose anchored off Porlamar in Margarita Island, Venezuela. It was the first catamaran I'd ever been on, so I was staggered at the amount of space below.

The English skipper had just sailed her from the UK with his two young children without any problems.

The Prout Snowgoose remains a very popular cruising multihull to this day - and rightly so...
