Mere words struggle to fully describe this amazing J. Benford, Marine Architect inspired, Harbor Ferry/Trawler named “Annie”.
Annie is unique, so unique
Annie is the epitome of elegant cruising
Annie is a true “head turner”
Annie is a handcrafted meticulously maintained trawler/ yacht
Annie has enjoyed extensive cruises on America’s fresh water inland river system. Nearly every Port o’call has at least one Annie story to tell or a visit to recall.
Captain’s Choice is proud to exclusively offer this cruising yacht and to share the news among so many boating enthusiasts that have been fortunate enough to behold her either near or far off. Most all have been left in awe at her design, construction, layout and performance.
Annie is a cold-molded wood/West system epoxy and Dynel constructed displacement hull trawler. She is 52.5’ LOA, 18’ beam, and drafts 4.5’. Annie is equipped with a deck, sideshell, and internal liner.The liner is Mechanically Fastened to the hull and sideshell and provides for the additional strength, support, and foundation for the vessel.
Annie’s propulsion is from twin Cummins 4BT3.9M diesels inboards with twin disc transmissions. There are two generators, a 15 KW Westerbeke and a 40 KW Westerbeke as well as inverter systems and 4-30k BTU Marine airsystems.
Teak throughout, exceptional well-planned galley, two dedicated staterooms with 2 additional spaces (salon and wheelhouse bunkage), two heads with roomy showers.
Nothing has been spared in bringing Annie to her elegant and enhanced status. She represents her builder/owner’s 16 years of dedication and ingenuity that show in every single inch of a trawler yacht that truly has no comparison.
And.....Just in case you were wondering....there IS a full functioning calliope that is included!!
