Other information:
The LOCHIN 33 GDSV was developed for commercial 'offshore' operations as patrol / police launches. This vessel saw service with Dorset Police in the 1980/90's, subsequently with the London Met. Police. Now in private hands, she has been re-engined with sensibly powered Volvo engines giving her sparkling
performance. She is amply suitable to re-enter the commercial world or continue as a distance cruiser with all the advantages a Lochin can provide.
