Sweeney‘s Cruise Company Loch Lomond have unveiled a stunning new vessel to their fleet.
The vessel named Avocet, after the bird, measures 27 meters long and 7 meters wide. It will be the largest vessel on Loch Lomond, overtaking their current largest vessel, M.V. Astina and will have a capacity of 170-180 passengers. This new boat will be used for Sweeney‘s daily sightseeing cruises, as well as special event cruises.
The boat’s journey began by getting craned onto a container ship in Rotterdam, then its final journey was a sail from Amsterdam, before reaching Dumbarton and arriving in Balloch, then craned in.
