"With low freeboard, a sharp bow, tall rig and sloped transom, the Annie 29 looks ready to take on most any sea with aplomb.

“When these boats were being built in the early 1980s, the owners explained what sort of layout they wanted and Tom Morris was glad to follow those plans, with some recommendations,” Paine said. “Tom enjoyed making interior modifications.”
The V-berth sleeps two and has a privacy curtain. Most boats have a settee and a drop-leaf table that converts to an additional berth. The galley was usually located to starboard near the base of the companionway stairs and featured, a stainless basin sink, two-burner stove and top-loading icebox.
