Anja was originally constructed as a Dutch MFV in 1961 to a traditional commercial offshore design. Displacement welded steel hull, wheelhouse and decks painted in high quality 2-pack epoxy paint (wheelhouse and decks repainted 2011). Wheel steering to single rudder.
During the last 10 years she has been lovingly converted from a bare hull in to a well appointed offshore cruising boat, with most work completed in 2008. All systems, upholstery, fittings and cabinetry are new and the hull was spray insulated and fully repainted inside and out. In May 2013 the hull has been re-painted, it has been freshly antifouled and new anodes have been fitted ready for the coming season.
