Prout Catamarans are designed for short-handed crews.  The helmsman can attach a harness while in the saloon, step into the cockpit and operate the vessel single handed without leaving the cockpit or unhooking the harness.  All sails can be raised, lowered, reefed and trimmed by one person in the cockpit.  The cutter rig keeps the size of each sail small enough for a single person to handle.  There is no need to wake the off watch crew for sail changes.

Broker's Remarks

Prout 45s are the definitive world cruising catamarans in their size range.  They are made to cross-oceans in comfort, safety and with a minimum of crew.  Enigma is a prime example of these incredible catamarans.  She was built in 1995 and commissioned in 1996 with all of the necessary equipment for world travel.  In 2005 Enigma received a thorough upgrade from her current owners, who are experienced blue water sailors.  No expense was spared to make Enigma a modern, fast, safe passage maker.  Enigma is a U.S. specifications vessel, which includes the more powerful 50 h.p. diesels and a 110v electrical system. Her equipment list is extensive.  Quite simply, Enigma is the finest, best maintained, and most completely equipped Prout 45 currently available.  Additional photos, comprehensive set of Prout literature and independent boat reviews available upon request.
