Brooklin Boat Yard 2007
While a near mirror image of her predecessor Stormy Weather above the waterline, Anna was built 4 feet longer to enhance onboard guest space, particularly in the sleeping areas belowdecks. And whereas Stormy Weather was built as a yawl, Anna was drawn as a sloop, a design change predicated on enhanced performance.
Anna also boasts a modernized hull shape that incorporates a fin keel and spade rudder. Her build process, too, was noteworthy, done at the Brooklin Boat Yard in Maine using cold molded wood epoxy construction as opposed to plank-on-frame.
Anna is the latest of several Sparkman & Stephens designs for this owner, a testament to how the firm helps each client achieve many yachting dreams throughout his lifetime.
