Owned by Neil Brunton and family, Oor Millie is a recent addition to Dunbar's commercial fleet. She was built in 1958 by Watts of Banff, now Macduff Shipyard but the same family.

An old traditional wooden boat with a 127hp Gardner engine, her dimensions are length 33 foot x 10 foot beam x 5 foot draft, 7.6 ton registered (but gross weight would easily be greater than 10 ton).

Originally named Lustre (Latin for 'light'), she was in Shetland for years with the Lerwick registration LK315, then she went to the Isle of Rassay. Neil purchased her in December 2018 from Donald Mckenzie of Rassay. She is now registered in Leith (LH315) and called Oor Millie after the Bruntons' granddaughter Millie

She was a trawler when bought but Neil is now converting her for potting (creels). Neil and crew are 'getting there', hoping to have her ready for this winter.

Good luck and happy landings!
