The Lochin 333 has been a successful sea-going craft since introduction in 1996. Now recognised as a favoured vessel for many commercial undertakings. 'OTARIE' currently operates under *MCA Coding (Cat.2) being carefully maintained throughout. The layout offers plenty of space for survey monitoring, diving and fishing, etc., and has the advantage of the fly-deck. Equally suited to many leisure activities, this vessel is ready to serve again. View the photos - they are worth a look!

"We have known this vessel from new. With only three owners since launched new - including current owners - each have operated the vessel commercially and have maintained her well. She has the preferred engine installation providing a spritely performance with economic running costs and, of course, the sea- keeping capability of which these craft are renowned. Whilst she currently has a commercial 'stamp', this craft is equally suitable for "private & pleasure."
