Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Ryan & Roberts Marine Services Ltd, who have been fitting out Lochin mouldings in Ireland since the mid-nineties are proud to announce the arrival in Ireland of all the Lochin moulds to include the 33, 36 and 40’ moulds, including all sub moulds and accessories.

Having completed a range of versatile tourism boats in the last number of years, including the Skellig Flyer for Portmagee’s Paul Devane and the Dun Eoghan for Inishowen’s John McLaughlin, the team at Ryan & Roberts take pride in developing vessels to suit each customer’s specific needs.

As Ryan & Roberts owner Cyril Ryan explains, “Every customer has their own unique preferences, whether that’s in terms of tailoring the specific design of a passenger boat or fitting certain fixtures on a fishing boat. We work closely with our customers to ensure that the finished product is of the highest quality.”

Cyril will be showcasing his most recent completion at the Irish Skipper Expo, a new 10 metre potting boat for Mr James McGonagle of Kincasslagh, Co Donegal.  Again, the craft was built with a totally new designed super-structure to incorporate a small whale back and the new Lochin wheelhouse with forward facing windscreens which can be adapted for a multitude of wheelhouse sizes, including catamarans.

Ryan & Roberts are committed to continuing the very successful partnership with Lochin Marine UK, a partnership that has led to Lochin making the decision to move all their moulds to Ryan & Roberts facility in Limerick.  Now the complete moulding and fit-out of Lochin is carried out at Ryan & Roberts, allowing them the flexibility in design to facilitate the Irish market and supply hulls and superstructure for export.

Cyril Ryan is looking forward to meeting new and existing customers at Stand No 110 at Irish Skipper Expo 2023.
