Sister ship of the famous "Yankee" by Irving and Electa Johnson (Books "Yankee sails the Nile", "Yankee sails across Europe", National Geographic Magazine). ?Anna Marie? is designed by Sparkman and Stephens and was built in the well known shipyard Porsius in Zaandam / Netherlands in 1975. Since construction the yacht is held by only one owner family with home port in northern Germany. ?Anna Marie? has been sailed for years in all parts of the North- and Baltic Sea, has been maintained and updated continuously and is in good condition. The quality of its corten steel construction as well as the wooden works are exceptionally good. All fittings, materials and equipment are generously dimensioned and built for eternity. With two independent centreboards the boat can be well trimmed under sail and the draught can be reduced to 1.25m. To fall dry in the wadden area and sailing to flat estuaries and harbours is no problem. Being an extremely stable boat ?Anna Marie? can be sailed for many thousand miles more with a crew of 2 to 8 persons easily and secure.
