After weeks of preparation, it took only 3 hours for the PT-138 hull 02 to be completely infused. The advanced construction method of composite G.R.P. with carbon fiber reinforcements is believed to be the largest single piece epoxy infusion in the world and was completed at the factory in China under the auspices of RINA.

The Prout design PT138 is fitted with a Caterpillar C-12 on the center hull and Steyr Hybrid diesel engines fitted on the port and starboard wing hulls. The vessel achieves a cruising speed under power of 15 knots. Computer polar projections indicate excellent boat speeds under sail ranging from the low teens to the 20-knot range with 814.7 sqm  (8,771 sqft) of sail area.

The PT-138 sailing trimaran superyachts are expected to be delivered in late 2011 and in 2012 respectively.
