In the 1980’s, the R.N.L.I. chose the Lochin 33 as the basis for the ‘Brede Class
and these craft served them well for almost 20 years. The same craft were adopted by the South African equivalent of the R.N.L.I. known as the National Sea Rescue Institute (N.S.R.I.). The Lochin 33s were also built for pilots, police patrol craft and passenger carriers as well as many charter and leisure vessels. Our Lochin 33, ‘Knights Challenge’,
was built in 1990 and has a long wheelhouse, safe stable working deck and twin Yanmar diesel engines on shaft drives. She is equipped with chartplotter, colour radar, AIS, Navtex, intercom, autopilot and twin VHF radios. She is Category 2 commercially coded (up to 60 miles) for up to 8 persons. She is a training boat, so she has some knocks and scratches, but we keep her mechanically well maintained, clean and with an ample supply of tea and coffee.
