for Sport Fishing Connoisseurs
If you are about to pull the trigger on a long awaited "you only live once" fishing boat for yoursef, you really owe it to yourself to check out the newest addition to the Prowler line, the behemoth Prowler 40, coming to a sea near you.
Nearly 12 feet wide and 40 ft in length, the Prowler 40 is anticipated to weigh a mere 5000 lbs (hull weight), and will bring you the latest construction materials and technologies on the market. Design features will include the next generation Prowler hull innovations that are optimized for speed and offshore turning capability, and will include a multi-stepped ventilated bottom, asymmetrical sponsons, and Kevlar reinforcements.
Owner Bill Ratlieff, Jr. explains the inspiration behind his latest creation. “I wanted to build a fishing machine like nothing on the market, one that had it ALL - and I am incredibly pleased with her. The Prowler 40 has an aggressive profile, very sexy lines, and has been designed bottom up for both ride and maneuverability. No other vessel that size will do what it does. It’s truly revolutionary, and not for the faint of heart. It’s an off shore performance cat for those who want to fish and leave others in their wake. ”
Based on early testing, the Prowler 40 will top 60 mph powered with only two 350’s and will speed over the roughest seas effortlessly; preliminary results on gas economies are comparable to the Prowler line, proven to be one of the most efficient on the market.
The Prowler 40 will be available in late fall of 2014 in twin and quad engine packages, as a custom build only.
And yes folks, there's already a line.....
