Any offers considered.
Superb traditional converted trawler for commercial cruise/dive work or live-aboard/leisure use.
After three years safe and reliable service operating daily wildlife cruises from Uig Harbour on Skye, our much-loved and admired vessel, The Radiant Queen, is only offered for sale due to business expansion.
Originally a Fife ring netter, she was substantially constructed of larch on oak by Weatherheads of Cockenzie in 1947. Since her retirement from commercial fishing, she has been used as a dive boat in Orkney and latterly as a cruise/charter vessel for Skye Cruises Limited.
She has been well-maintained, upgraded and has retained SVC coding (Cat 2).
