This custom built motoryacht provides ample space for social gatherings, as well as creature comforts for long-range cruising. With a cruising speed of 16 knots, the sleek Janet Ann is a handsome, well-appointed, three-cabin yacht complete with luxurious accommodations.

The fiberglass aft cockpit includes moveable folding chairs and an integrated swimstep platform that provides an access stairway to the command bridge, the main salon, lazarette, and engine room. Sliding glass doors separate the cockpit from the salon, which includes a comfy, U-shaped sofa to port with floral-patterned upholstery. Opposite the sofa are two lounge chairs with a side table in between and an entertainment center with a Samsung 40” TV and a Sony stereo system with CD, audio cassette, and Blu-Ray DVD players. Forward in the carpeted salon is a dining table with six fabric-covered chairs, and a wood and glass cabinet for display storage.

Forward of the salon and up three steps is the wheelhouse, with an L-shaped dinette settee and table to port and the galley to starboard. The galley features unique, J-shaped, royal-blue countertops—the vibrant color theme that is found on hard surfaces and fabrics throughout the vessel. Galley equipment includes a Schott Ceran four-element glass hob stove top, a Maytag self-clean electric oven, a Panasonic microwave, a McClary refrigerator, a Frigidaire freezer, a Kelvinator dishwasher, and an Indel Webasto icemaker.

The lower helm is located forward of the galley/dinette area, with a raked windshield, a blue helm chair, and two flanking companionway doors for access to the side decks. Helm equipment includes FloScan engine performance indicators, Wesmar bow-thruster controls, a Wagner Hydraulic station, MicroCommander 585 CF engine controls, a Simrad AP28 autopilot, a Ritchie magnetic compass, ICOM IC-M602 VHF, a Sitex depth sounder, a Lowrance LCX-104 GPS chartplotter and fish-finder, and JRC JMA-2254 raster scan radar.

A portside aft stairwell from the salon provides access to the open-air upper command bridge, with duplicated engine operating equipment and navigation electronics. To starboard is a navigator’s workstation area, forward of a triangular table and another L-shaped settee with blue-striped upholstery that matches the two swiveling helm chairs. Aft of the flybridge seating area is the boat deck with a hydraulic crane and chocks for a Boston Whaler tender. A custom-made, curved Bimini covers the seating and command bridge areas.

Powering the Janet Ann through the waves are twin MAND2688 LE 401’s, producing600 hp each, both of which have about 1,200 hours of use since 1999.New zincs were installed in 2021 plus the two Osborne, four-blade props made of bronze.

On the lower deck, the owner’s stateroom located aft features built-in storage cabinetry, a workstation, and an Olympic queen-size island berth, plus a clothes washer and dryer. Opposite to port, the en suite head contains a shower and bathtub. The VIP guest cabin forward also has an island berth, built-in cabinetry, and an entertainment system. Farther aft in the companionway is a shared enclosed head and shower to starboard and a guest cabin to port with four bunk berths.
