"I undertook to build an unbeatable all-weather craft to meet commercial standards in order that she could be MCA Coded for charter work, etc. if required to do so."
"The hull, ring deck and wheelhouse mouldings were manufactured by Lochin International Ltd to a structurally finished standard under naval architect supervision. All subsequent work was undertaken by a well known local Channel Islands yard - and the owner - to an exceptionally high standard. The outcome is a fine example of the LOCHIN 40 with potential for private cruising or to undertake commercial roles as her new owner will dictate. Note: VAT has not been paid."Read more
