Prout 46 catamaran

History of a Prout 46 catamaran built at Canvey Island.

By Bruce Martin

I am the owner of a Prout 46 catamaran built on Canvey Island in 1999. The original name of the boat was Porcelain Bus and is now Mushroom. The Prout company has since closed and I would like to find the history of my boat and it occurred to me some of your readers may have worked for Prout and may be able to assist. I was originally from Essex but now live in Western Australia, where I enjoy sailing this unique boat, no other boat builder has successfully copied the Prout design and it is sad the company is no longer building boats.
