Lady Anne is a fine example of a tried and true Trawler built for the Northwest. Undoubtedly one of the most seaworthy and economical vessels in her class. Her most recent voyage was in the summer of 2018, another round trip expedition of the Inside Passage, a mere 2200 miles using an average of only 1.86 gallons per hour. She is definitely set up to cruise! Equipped with paravanes, not only is she capable of dealing with serious conditions, she’s done it, including crossing the Gulf of Alaska several times.
Lady Anne’s floor plan is unique in the world of Willard trawlers. Her floor plan is very similar to that of a Krogen 39, including a walk-in engine room located beneath the Pilot House, walk around bed and head in the bow. The galley is well appointed, double drawer refrigerator, a 5.5 cubic foot freezer and a princess three burner propane cook top oven. The salon is well appointed as well, recliner chair with foot stool and a full size sofa bed. Stay nice and toasty with the the Dickinson Alaskan heater, always nice and dry using NO power. Other heat heat sources include a Wabasto heater in the stateroom in addition to electric heaters.
Lady Anne is powered by a 120 HP Ford Lehman that was replaced in 2005 and only has 2900 hours. Fuel capacity is 310 gallons for a 1000 mile range. Additional tankage is installed in the boat but has never been commissioned. Beneath the salon floor there is very extensive stowage as the only machinery installed is an 8KW Lugger Generator. In addition to the gen, there is shelving installed around the perimeter for storage of spare parts and cruising supply’s. The electrical systems on the boat have been augmented with 400 watts of solar panels, this summer the generator was run only thirty hours on a 350 hour engine run time cruise as the panels kept up with demand very well. She never ran low on batteries or lost the inverter due to low power. Fresh water is supplied by four tanks for a total of 350 gallons, hot water supplied from a Dickinson heater via engine hot water supply or AC power. The Pilot House is one of the finer features on the boat, offering great visibility and comfort for the captain. All controls and instruments are ergonomically placed in front of the securely mounted comfortable helm seat! Ground tackle aboard this Vessel is solid! 600 foot of rode is attached to a Rochna Anchor controlled by a Kinematic Hydraulic Winch. Lady Anne’s hull is SOLID, with no blisters on the entire vessel. Bottom was painted in the spring of 2018. All systems on the boat are in top notch condition and ready to go to Alaska tomorrow!
