Loch Fyne Cruisers, Tarbert

Does anyone remember "Loch Fyne Cruisers", Tarbert and/or know what happened to them? No special reason for asking, just wondering.

Certainly remember them - bit like lochgoilhead cruisers... went about with fenders permanently rigged. Did they not also have a fleet of Highlander 28's for charter too?

Were the highlanders named after family members?... Stevie-B etc.? We have one in Troon and I'm sure his sibling is in tarbert. If those are they (to coin a phrase) it's been a long time since they came on the public market.

The three were Suzy-B, Sammy-B and Stevie-B, named after their children. I don't know if they had a plan in case the fleet expanded (or the brood). They were run by Linda & Stewart Byron, the last people known to run the Frog as a pleasant pub with decent food. They are currently heading south aboard Yell Sound for the ARC I believe.
