About this Boat

Price reduction for quick sale, was $250,000, reduced to $222,500.  All offers invited. 

Though listed as a 1979, about the only thing remaining from the original construction is the hull and that has recently been insulated and painted. 

 

This vessel is the perfect combination: The legendary strength of a Prout and the thoughtful redesign of the interior, conceived and executed by the knowledgeable owners.  The proof is in the years of virtually carefree cruising that they have experienced over the last 20 years.

From her large master stateroom with walk-in closet to the work shop in the aft port hull to the immense pantry in the aft starboard hull she is the epitome of everything you would desire: comfort, convenience and simplicity.  The hand crafted interior adds the welcome touch of elegance and charm.

Though the renovations date back to 2002 to 2005, the owner's have kept her well maintained.  The topsides and bottom were painted in November, 2018 and the hull sparkles.  The bulkhead covering was recently replaced and is "as new", with the added benefit of additional layers of        Reflectix insulation which provides protection from moisture as well as sound and temperature modulation. 

If you are looking for a yacht in this category please carefully review the detailed information as well as the photographs, almost all of which were taken 23 January, 2019.  And yes, she really does look this good.  Look as well at the owner's comments at the end of the listing information.

For the couple looking for a complete, ready to go cruising catamaran you should at the very least consider Sea Wolf.

Additional Details

Accommodations

In 2002 the interior of Sea Wolf was completely gutted, rewired, re-plumbed and redesigned by the current owners.  Their aim was to make the boat  perfect for a cruising couple.  They succeeded admirably, keeping the integrity of the solid Prout hull and improving on both livability and quality of the interior furnishings, better than factory original.

Typically on boats this size the two aft cabins become vast storage areas where miscellaneous items are crammed together.  Instead, Sea Wolf has an excellent work shop aft in the port hull and immense pantry storage aft in the starboard hull as well as a walk-in closet in the owners' stateroom forward in the starboard hull.

The salon has U-shaped settee surrounding a beautiful, custom designed and crafted table with the galley to starboard.  A patio style sliding door gives easy access to and from the cockpit.  Wide, curving steps midship lead into each hull.

Headroom in salon is 6'2", 6'5" in hulls.

Though not installed, wiring, plumbing and thru-hulls as necessary are in place for washer/dryer, water maker, and generator.  Provisions for installation of airco/heat have also been made including duct-work.

IVC central vacuum system with 50' hose makes house keeping easy.

Full canvas canopy covers the foredeck for protection from the sun.

Owner's Comments

He says:

The refit was to make Sea Wolf self sufficient with the capability of being able to travel and cruise for extended periods of time. With that in mind, all systems are built around a 12volt system powered by solar. 12 - Trojan 105- 6 volt batteries deep cycle batteries make up the six 12 volt battery banks. The batteries are located with tremendously easy access for servicing them. The batteries are supported by two grids totaling 500 watts of solar panels that are attached to the hardtop that also protects us from the weather. The hardtop also serves as a water catchment for rainwater. We have a 3000 watt inverter that can allow us to use the microwave and TV for movie watching. We have not yet installed a water maker but the cabinet and plumbing are already in place for it. We are presently making far more energy than we consume on a daily basis and plan to have the system default to making water when the batteries are topped off.

Sea Wolf is 19' 6" on the beam which is narrow compared to today's production models. We have found the benefits far outweigh the negatives. We can easily find a slip in a marina if we desire. We can be hauled in most travel lifts thus eliminating the need and expense of having to hire a crane. 

Sea Wolf has full keels included in the 4 foot draft. The engines are located amidship with shaft drives. This gives the boat great balance.  Most all of the newer cats have sail drives with the engines at the stern of the vessel. Poor for balance and all of the negatives associated with sail drives. In a flat sea with no current she will do about 7.5 to. 8.0.  With the full keels she tracks straight. The boat weighs 38,000 pounds fully loaded.

She says:

When we were rebuilding the boat, Bill made sure I had every conceivable convenience to make sure I was a happy camper.  His attitude has always been, “if the mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody gonna be happy” and he made sure I had everything I needed or wanted... and then some... to make me happy. I had a big master cabin berth with lots and lots and lots of storage space.  We have what amounts to full sized dressers in each cabin and a large walk in closet with a full length mirror on the door in the master suite.  We installed a washer/dryer, A/C, and a built in vacuum with a 50’ cord.  Never used the washer/dryer so we took it out.  We cruised in the tropics so there was always a breeze.  We installed extra insulation throughout the boat so it is cool in the summer and warm in he winter.  We have a ton of opening hatches and ports so we always had a good breeze running through the boat.  As a result, so we never used the A/C units either... so we finally took them out, too.

  Sea Wolf is more like a floating condo then a boat and we spent 20 very comfortable years living aboard.  We often had gatherings on the boat of 10+ people enjoying the foredeck under the canopy.  When the canopy is up, it shields the hatches on the berths from all but a heavy or wind blown rain.  The kids love to sit on the bow seats watching the dolphins run in the wakes and we have many such videos from our travels.  Another favorite is just laying on the trampolines watching the water go under the bridge deck.  Bill has caught many a meal fishing off the back deck while we’re underway.  We have two strong rod holders attached to the cockpit seating so it’s easy to just play out the line and wait for the whirr when there’s something on the line.  It’s also lovely to be able to easily bring a fish up on deck, clean it and then hose everything off so there’s no mess on the boat.
