A Vision Realized: Efficiency, Sustainability, and Comfort

The Audacious project began with a clear vision: to construct a new vessel that prioritized efficiency, sustainability, crew well-being, and top-quality catches. After three years of meticulous planning and collaboration with Ove Kristensen of Vestværftet ApS (Denmark), this vision became reality.

Irish Innovation at its Finest

Built to Bureau Veritas specifications, the Audacious showcases the best of Irish maritime capabilities. Extensive deck machinery and engine room packages were supplied by trusted Irish companies like EK Marine and Padmos, ensuring the vessel reflects the cutting-edge technology available within Ireland.
