WHIM was launched ANNIE ROSE on a spring day in 2005. This 38' jet boat is nimble and beautiful, complete with all the amenities the couple wanted for coastal cruising. Distinctive in all respects, the design came about after working with Chuck Paine and Mark Fitzgerald of C.W. Paine Yacht Design for several years. With them, we developed a stylish, jet cruiser which would be available from us on a semi-custom basis. The primary focus was to deliver a sea-kindly, fast and dry ride; plus a beautifully appointed exterior and interior with ample accommodations that could be fully customized.
The owners came to us after looking over the production and semi-production options currently on the market and not finding what they were looking for. It was clear that to have such a unique boat -- and one that ran superbly -- they would need a custom design-and-build. They found the Mark Fitzgerald design we had been developing to be the boat that answered their needs for performance and loved the fact they could design their own interior.
Appropriately, and as a testament to this boat’s versatility and all out fun (who would want to put this boat away for the winter!), WHIM currently spends the winters in Ocean Reef and looks forward to cruising the Bahamas; and spends summers island hopping from Nantucket to Maine. Built to last beautifully for decades, WHIM will be shown at the Palm Beach Boat Show March 26-29th.
