The new Audacious gets her feet wet

Behold, the new AUDACIOUS!

Recently Billy Gatt, David Gatt, Barry Reid and their families gathered in Szececin, Poland to celebrate the 6th Audacious BF83 as she took to the water for the first time.  The vessel measures 28m overall with a 8.6m beam and is powered by a 775hp CAT 3508 engine.  The hull will be delivered to Macduff for final outfitting. The plan is to begin pair trawling in Spring 2018 with partner vessel Faithlie.

Like many of our members, this is a family affair. Billy Gatt began fishing in 1979 as a 3ed generation fisherman. David started in 2011, becoming the 4th generation, and he hopes that his boys come on board as the 5th generation to continue fishing.  Barry Reid, who also captains the Audacious, began fishing commercially in 1994. 

Godspeed Audacious.
