77 ft Tsulamaran
A large Catamaran built on Canvey
On the 14th July 1963 at Small Gains Creek The Point Canvey Island, the largest catamaran to be built in Europe was launched, 77ft length, beam 24ft.
She was built by G Prout and Sons at their factory at the Point. A new building was constructed to build it in. The Catamaran took two years to build and fit out to the customer’s requirements.
Mike Brown was in charge of the construction and at the time, I was in the sales office.
After trials in the Thames estuary she was delivered to Holyhead, Anglesey where she was to be berthed.
During the building and delivery I took many photos and cine film, which I have put on DVD, a selection are shown below. Clip on photos for details
