“I asked if she was for sale and the deal was done on a handshake” Ross Warrell

mv (motor vessel) Lady Ann is a beautiful, traditional, wooden, carvel-built Broads boat; lovingly restored by Ross. We believe that she was one of the Tudor Roses sailing out of Oulton Broad's "Little Ships" in the 1960s.

Ross first drove her for Wroxham Launch Hire (Hoveton). At the time she was being used for filming the Broads and this was when she was first stripped out. Mr Starbucks had found her at Belaugh; he fitted her out for hire and ran her himself for river trips. When Wroxham Launch hire withdrew her from service, Ross asked if she was for sale and the deal was done on a handshake!

mv Lady Ann now spends her time on Horsey Mere, during the summer months, amongst the fabulous wildlife. With her beautiful mahogany interior, comfortable seating for 12 and all-weather canopy, she is the perfect boat for wildlife watching and photography. Highly recommended by a returning family of swallows.
