Cartagena Murcia Spain
Barracuda was built in Canvey Island UK. She is built for blue water cruising and is easily sailed by a couple as all sails can be handled without leaving the cockpit. She is a pretty boat and has been subject to much comment here in Spain.
When we were looking for a Prout she was the one we wanted as she has wooden galley and chart table areas rather than the plastic ones and a square shaped saloon (reupholstered September 2018) not the more usual horseshoe.
Like many Prouts she has in the past suffered from leaking windows, however in January 2016 these were replaced with custom made windows, bonded in place without bolts. Over the past three years these have been thoroughly tested in breaking seas and heavy thunderstorms, Barracuda has stayed dry throughout. She had a full out of water survey in September 2015 and no serious issues were found. All the recommendations have been carried out with the exception of the installation of electric bilge pumps.
She has been lightly used since new with only 8713NM on the log. She has been well maintained, the engines have been regularly serviced since we purchased her, they start easily and run sweetly.
An interesting review of the Escale can be found at:. www.boats.com/reviews/prout-escale-39-cruising-catamaran/#.W6imzYHRZTs
She comes fully equipped ready to sail with her new owners on new adventures. All in all we will be sorry to say goodbye to her.
