This classic tug was built in 1955 by Smith Basin Drydock of Port Everglades, FL as the ST-2199 for the U.S. Army. The tug was sent to England for reserve service, and then came back to Virginia in the 1990s. In 2003 she was sold civilian to an owner in Boston, MA. In 2007, she was acquired by St. James Marine of Beaver Island, MI, who brought the tug to the Great Lakes after a refit.

Wendy Anne is used in the towing, dredging, and transportation trades on Lake Michigan out of Beaver Island, working alongside her fleetmate American Girl.
