S/V Autonomy is a Florida based 1990 Prout Snowgoose Catamaran for sale by owner

This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!!

S/V Autonomy is a Florida based 1990 Prout Snowgoose Catamaran for sale by owner. We just returned from the Bahamas, Autonomy is the perfect ready-to-go cruising catamaran. I had dreams of taking her around the world, and prepared her for such. Lots and lots of updated improvements in late 2016/2017. This is a very safe Yacht: All trim and reefing is made inside the cockpit.

We upgraded to new 530 watts in solar panels, new 60 amp battery charger, new 50 amp solar charger, new 2000 watt inverter, new 30 gallons per hour water maker, new radar, new autopilot, new chart plotter, new 2000 watt Honda generator, new wifi extender, and much more (see list below). We explored the East coast and the Bahamas, and her previous owners took her throughout the Caribbean. Life got in the way for us, but Autonomy is ready now for your coastal or blue-water adventures.

The Prout Snowgoose is one of the rare catamarans that can be found in ports around the world and cost less than $200,000. Built in the UK for the turbulent North Sea, they were recently named as the second best used cruising boat by Cruising World (“9 Best Used Boats for 2017”). Cruising World also named them among the catamarans best at holding their value (August 2002 issue).

The tremendous solar power, large battery bank, water maker, and compost head provide a cruiser with incredible freedom. No longer be tied to a marina. Find an island, anchor by yourself, and only seek out a port when the beer or rum runs low. If you crave company, the huge custom bimini and large cockpit welcomes fellow boaters. With twin engines you can turn on a dime, or throw up the jib and cruise with the power of the wind. The interior is spacious, with good head room, nice sight lines, and cherry wood furnishings.

Plentiful lighting and fans, as well as convenient AC outlets. New 3 burner stove, an oven with toaster, and a double sink with a pull-out sprayer faucet, Autonomy will quickly become your home.

This is a two owner Yacht which has never been Chartered, and which no one has ever smoked on board. We last took her out on April 1, 2018, and it breaks our heart to sell her. We are moving to the Northeast, more than 100 miles from the ocean. Looking for an owner that will continue her adventures.
