Lochin 33 motor boat – Plymouth, Devon

SeaRegs have a Lochin 33 available for charter either from our Plymouth base or further afield can be arranged for an additional fee. The Lochin 33 is a work boat, commonly used as a dive boat or fishing charter boat. Prior to coming to Plymouth as our training boat in 2013, our Lochin 33 spent 15 years working as a Committee Boat in the Solent. She has many uses for charter whether it’s as a support vessel, committee boat, media boat or just for exploring rivers.

The Boat

In the 1980’s, the R.N.L.I. chose the Lochin 33 as the basis for the ‘Brede Class’ Lifeboat 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.

XS 700 – Plymouth, Devon

The XS 700 is used commercially all over the world. This craft has unrivalled sea keeping in the 7m class with large buoyancy and a deep-vee hull for  softer ride.

We had our XS 700 built to our specifications so that she would be a solid and safe vessel with a multitude of uses such as personnel transfer, load and equipment carrying, photo vessel and just a great day out with family and friends with good space and seating for up to 8 (including the driver).

We have also configured the vessel so that the two back seats can be removed giving just over a 1m x 1.3m space with pad eyes for strapping down load or equipment or to allow a larger work area or photographic/instrument platform.

Power is delivered by a Suzuki 175HP four stroke outboard engine and she has an AIS Class B receiver & transmitter and a Garmin chart plotter.

Sabre is fully code compliant for commercial use and can be used up to 20 miles by day and 3 miles by night from a safe haven with up to 8 persons.

We also trail the RIB to other sites for around inland/coastal waters in the UK.
