They never belonged to anyone other than the Scottish Office's Marine Laboratory in Torry , Aberdeen. MVM ( Marr Vessel Management ) only supplied the crews for the old Scotia , New Scotia and the Clupea. I'm just back from hospital after an operation but i'll post up photo's I took on both boats in the 1990's next week at some point. I worked as a fishery scientist at the Marine Lab for 9 years and i've done dozens of research trips on the old Scotia and quite a few on the new Scotia before I left.

Davie ( don't worry about the ownership most people thought that Marr's owned them , if you read their site you'd think they did !! , they can wish I suppose lol after all Marr's aint going to spend the £26million that the new Scotia cost to design and build are they lol ).
