Macduff Ship Design has received high praise for their Scotia vessel, which was recently constructed for ABP Ayr Harbour.
The commendation on the project was received in February from the port authority.
ABP Port of Ayr pilots said: “We have been doing all sorts of things with her already, pilot duty, mooring assist in adverse weather. The boat handles very well and has very good sea keeping qualities, so far we have had no bother whatsoever we cannot praise her enough.
“The whole project has been a great experience start to finish and a tremendous peace of kit at the end of it.”
