Accommodations


ANNIE J is configured with two staterooms: owner’s quarters are forward with enclosed head and shower stall adjacent to the forepeak, a comfortable settee to port and double berth to starboard.

The main saloon is striking and inviting with large windows and an abundance of daylight.  The inside helm station is to starboard, just forward of a semi-circular dinette that would comfortably seat six.   A central stairway (not ladder) leads up to the cockpit and aft helm station. 

Cleverly positioned behind the stairway is the galley (see GALLEY).  Down three steps is the aft stateroom with twin lower berths and single upper berth to starboard.   Storage is abundant with numerous drawers and lockers. A second head compartment is ensuite and also serves as the day head.  

Fit and finish is in Herreshoff yacht style with white tongue & groove paneling and varnished mahogany trim. Soles are a combination of butternut and black walnut with a natural finish. Ceiings are of bright finished cyprus. Ambiance is warm, inviting and traditional and of a quality not seen in today’s production boats.
