The Puffin was designed by Barry Bucknell for Prout an Essex Yard famous for their big catamarans. This is from the 70’s. I’ve had it since the eighties. For many years it was the tender to my yacht. It is like a mirror dinghy and is happy under motor or with the oars provided, it sails pleasantly too. The collapsing sides make it possible just to load it single handed and carry it on a car roof rack, helpful at times. It tows well with the plate in. “2 piece mast, tiller, rudder, centreboard, good sails, oars, sheets etc, only missing a jib fairlead. To sail, it needs the skirt re-gluing or replacing, the rubbing straik refitting. If I were keeping it I would fill it fair it paint it. There is interest in these small craft and the Prout story is a bit Essex history, google “Prout Puffin” and you’ll see what I mean. Interested parties welcome to view. You’ll need a roof rack and straps to get it home. The boat is in Sible Hedingham, Essex.
