'Lady Anne', a Beaty 31 for Sale

(Rio Dulce, Guatemala, Central America)

'Lady Anne', a Sparkman & Stevens designed Beaty 31, located in Rio Dulce, Guatemala, Central America.

'Lady Anne' is the prettiest boat in Rio Dulce. The ideal boat for cruising the Cayes in Belize. shallow draft so she can go in and out of the Rio Dulce regardless of the tides and in and around the Cayes and lagoons in Belize, economical 3 cylinder diesel engine, solar panels so no noisy generators to keep the batteries charged, a fridge for the cold beers and a dream to sail.

Built by the Beaty Bros in 1970, based on a Sparkman & Stephens design - the Hinkley 31 - dating back to 1935.

A rare boat with beautiful, classic, lines. This is not a project boat, it is a finished project and ready to go, over US$9,000 invested in her in 2014, US$2,300 in November 2016 and another US$2,000 in 2018 plus US$1,800 in 2020 on new aft hatch, deck, main hatch and cabin top renovations

Sleeps 2 persons in the V berth in the fore cabin, but 2 more bunks could be added in the main cabin if required probably costing about US$500 to do locally.

A word of warning...
This is a 1935 design so the boat is sleeker, lower in the water, much more compact and smaller inside than more modern boats so if you are very tall or very wide this is probably not the boat for you.

Just add a dinghy and a GPS and you are ready to go!

Currently can be seen at Bruno’s Marina in Rio Dulce, Guatemala.
