Dick Koopmans, the most acknowledged yacht designer from the Netherlands designed all his designs from first hand experience. He has cruised the world himself, and that shows in his excellent seaworthy designs. Spacious, shallow draft, "Annida" combines it all with her hydraulic centerboard keel (1.35/2.20m) and cutter rig, providing lots of cruising possibilities. Very well thought interior layout what makes her perfect for longer sailing passages.
