Highly regarded in the commercial marine world, the Lochin 33 offers a superb combination of excellent sea keeping, low maintenance and economy, whilst being highly capable of both offshore cruising or exploring inland waterways thanks to the protected single shaft propulsion. Chosen by the RNLI as the basis for the Brede class lifeboat, they are a great alternative to similar models from Nelson, Aqua-Star, Aquabell, Mitchell or Newhaven. Although 'Saxon Lady' is fitted out for comfortable cruising and relaxed fishing, she could easily be put to work commercially and would suit support, diving, fishing, and leisure trip usage with the relevant equipment and coding carried out. She is presented in good condition and her inventory includes diesel heating, electric windlass and capstan winch, bow thruster, and modern electronics. Early viewing of this versatile motorboat is highly recommended!
