A proa is a type of boat that is characterized by its asymmetrical design and by having two hulls instead of one. The proa is traditionally used in the Pacific Islands and is known for its speed and stability, as well as its ability to sail in a variety of conditions. The design of a proa allows it to be easily sailed with minimal crew, and it is often used in long-distance voyages and races.
In recent years, the proa design has been adapted for use in modern sailing yachts, and many yacht designers have incorporated the design principles of the traditional proa into their designs. Today, proa-style yachts are used for a variety of purposes, including cruising, racing, and offshore sailing. They are known for their high levels of performance, stability, and comfort, and are widely recognized as innovative and highly functional sailing vessels.
