Anna is a center cockpit Norseman 447, hull number 53. She was launched in 1985 at the Ta Shing Shipyard in Taiwan ROC, just two short years after Jan and I were married in Newport Beach California. I've dreamed of owning a strong and capable cruising boat for a long, long time, and many plans have circled about for the last 30 years of how to pull off buying a boat like this, and then taking her on an extended cruise. Dreams can be the most powerful of motivators, and in March 2015 she became ours. Now the fun begins!
