D'ANNA

D'ANNA is an evolution of the Beals Island lobster boat, DIANA, which we restored in 2002. On re-launching, that boat was christened DIANA after the wife of her long time owner, Beals Island fisherman, historian and raconteur Avery Kelley. This modified design is named after Avery and Diana's daughter, D'Anna.

Modifications include a slight increase in length to 30' and a beam increase to 8' 6”, the legal trailering limit without permit. At this beam she is proportionately wider than her mother, but still narrow by today's standards, allowing for easier powering above theoretical hull speed. The freeboard has also been raised slightly, and the transom is proportionately wider. The extra size allows a self bailing cockpit. Is spite of her extra size, D'ANNA is slightly lighter than her mother, due to her glued construction. Fourteen knots are available with a 75hp inboard diesel.
