We launched ANNIE ROSE in the fog and mist of an early spring day in April 2005, just as scheduled. After an few additional weeks of refinements and final preparations at Lyman-Morse, she moved on to her summertime homeport of midcoast, Maine. This new 38' jet boat we built for the owners is a real beauty! After talking with Chuck Paine and Mark Fitzgerald of C.W. Paine Yacht Design for several years, we developed a stylish, single jet cruiser which would be available from us on a semi-custom basis. The main focus was on a sea-kindly, fast and dry ride; all this plus a beautifully appointed exterior and interior with ample accommodations for a couple to enjoy. After looking over the production options, it was clear to both the husband and wife that to have such a unique boat -- and one that ran truly 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 style. Taking the best ideas of his previous designs and putting all the pieces together, we created this remarkable and beautiful, fast boat complete with all the amenities the couple wanted for coastal cruising.
