Anny was built in 1930 in Denmark by Carstensen and Henriksen of Skagen, originally as a fishing vessel. She fished until 1972, with a period under German control during WWII. In 1972 she was converted to a topsail schooner, following which she worked in Europe and the Caribbean and undertook a world tour. Anny came home to Charlestown in July 2019 to a warm Cornish welcome, after delivery from Germany by the Charlestown Harbour Team. She now runs day trips, cruises and attends maritime festivals around Europe, including Charlestown’s own annual Classic Sail Festival.
