A great opportunity to purchase a very rare and desirable Lochin 33 Cruiser based on the well proven and highly regarded Lochin 33 commercial and fishing hull. They are often favourably compared to the Aqua-Star 33, Weymouth 34 or Mitchell 31. Fitted out for comfortable cruising, Tern 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. Her inventory includes diesel heating, electric windlass, bow thruster and upgraded John Deere engine (new 2004) for improved economy and reliability. Early viewing of this versatile motorboat is highly recommended!
