Classic designs have always fascinated me, be it in architecture, clothes, or even boats. The Miss Ann fantail motoryacht is one such boat that sort of takes you to a world of idle contentment just by its design. And its very classic design has got a lot to do with that. But that is what is great about this yacht as a calm yet fun filled experience is what a yacht is expected to offer.
Miss Ann was originally known as Siele and was built in 1926 by John French of Detroit. Here is a bit of history. This vessel actually served in WWII and also as an interim Presidential yacht for year between 1945-1946. Pretty amazing huh! After this glorious period, it wasn’t in action for a while. But in 1952 it got a makeover when E.A. Stevens of Virginia acquired it in 1952. It was then that she was re-christened Miss Ann and has since then been the family yacht and also the Grand Dame at Steven’s resort. But now she is looking for a new owner who will hopefully offer £1.5 million.
Michael Ferris of HMY Yacht Sales who is in charge of the sale said: :“There are few times as a Yacht Broker that one has the opportunity to represent what is clearly a piece of U.S. Maritime History. I consider this a privilege to represent this American Classic. Miss Ann is one of the very few remaining American Classics available and maybe considered as one of America’s first Mega Yachts still in service today!”
