New Trawler Offers Comfort and Towing Power

Loch Inchard III replaces the Mackay family’s Loch Inchard II, a wooden-hulled trawler that was built for them in 1984, making the switch to a new steel trawler a real leap in terms of comfort and efficiency. ‘It’s the first of its type, and while Loch Inchard III is bigger than the trawler it replaces, it’s not the biggest in its class. This is the biggest MDI fishing vessel design for UK waters for around twenty years.’ Photos, >click to read< 17:55
