In 2003 we purchased WD44 Atlantis, a beam trawler built in Holland in 1965. She was a working fishing vessel at the time out of Kilmore Quay in Ireland, fishing for scallops. She is 25m (90ft) in length and has a beam of 6.5m (21ft).
We flew to Ireland to look at her and instantly knew we wanted to take on this massive project. This is the story of our journey so far.
