Intended as an ocean-going small cruiser with a strong emphasis on speed and sailing ability, the Annie 29 boasts charm, simplicity, and quality craftsmanship. The top priority in her design was comfortable cruising, and comfortable she is: her healthy displacement results in an extremely gentle motion at sea. Her designer, Chuck Paine, conceptualized her as “the ultimate boat for the working man… large enough to become a man’s home, seaworthy enough to handle any ocean, fast enough to offer her owner any port in the world… and no more.”
Features aboard Annie 29 include a spacious forward cabin, laid out with a dresser and hanging locker for storage, opening hatch and ports for ventilation. Hand-crafted to be both charming and elegant, richly varnished mahogany makes up most of the interior. Complete with a two burner kerosene stove and oven, her galley provides a maximum amount of counter space and an exceptional amount of storage space. Annie 29 is a true gem: Everything you need, and nothing more.
