Annie J represents the chance of a lifetime for the discerning sailor to own one of renowned naval architect L. Francis Herreshoff ’s true classics at a fraction of her replacement cost.

Impeccably built by highly regarded Canadian East Coast custom boatbuilders, Covey Island Boatworks, Annie J was built using Covey Island’s time-tested composite wood/epoxy methods.

The concept for Annie J was based upon Walrus, a 1925 motorsailer designed by Herreshoff. The original Wal- rus, also noted as design #19, was built in 1929 by George Lawley & Son Corp. of Massachusetts. Like most Covey Island-built boats, Annie J’s hull is wood/epoxy construction, built with Douglas fir, epoxy and E-glass.

Annie J is true to Herreshoff ’s concept, but was slightly modified with input from the builders and EYE Marine. The result is a boat with an improved accommodation plan and modified keel/ballast and rig.

One of the things that sets Annie J apart is that she is equipped with two helm stations. In stormy weather, you can be inside dry and warm in the pilothouse; when the weather is clear, you can be at the outside helm in the cockpit.

In terms of accommodations, Annie J has an ample master stateroom, complete with shower and head forward, and a double stateroom and head aft. All of the joinery is beautiful mahogany, offset by bead board painted white in the Herreshoff style.

The galley, located midships to port, features plenty of room for stores to starboard. The galley’s granite countertop is trimmed with a stout mahogany fiddle and corner handholds to craft a look that is handsome and practical.

The configuration of the companionways and ladders leading from the pilothouse and belowdecks are complimented by opening deck hatches for guaranteed light and great ventilation throughout the boat. Annie J is also distinguished by its large pilothouse — larger in size than the house built aboard the original Walrus. The resulting space is home to a ship-like helm station and a convertible raised dinette as well.

Annie J is a ketch that offers ideal cruising for two couples. The rig has been kept simple and employs Lewmar, Profurl and Leisure Furl equipment for ease of sail-handling at the push of a button. Harken blocks, a Forespar vang, and New England Ropes keep the running rigging moving smoothly.
