About this Shannon Aft cockpit Ketch

English

     The Shannon 50 is the Flagship of the Shannon breed of sailing yachts.   This yacht came with different configurations.  This boat is the aft-cockpit, twin entrance, double headsail rigged, ketch.

     This boat is a serious offshore vessel capable of crossing oceans and doing long voyages, taking whatever the sea offers.   Stoutly built by Walter Schultz and David Walters fame, these boats were built to a semi-custom style to reflect the new owner's requirements.  All models did reflect the common theme of quality and attention to detail.     These boats exude a feeling of nautical history, a traditional comfortable design and a common sense approach to practicality offering good accessibility to systems and a favorable ergonomic, easy living design style.

     Sail Area:  1227 sq. ft.   Beam:  14' 3"   Draft - Centerboard:  Up:  5' 8"   Down: 9' 9"

     Ratios:       Sail Area/ Disp:   31.8      Disp./  Length:  222.85    Ballast/ Disp:    39%

Coming from an earlier generation of sailing yachts, do not be fooled as to the boat's performance.  This Owner has decades of experience, both cruising and racing.  He feels this boat is a powerhouse of performance that easily reaches hull speed.  He would be willing to share his opinions.  Yet, in a heavier sea condition, this boat will offer a smooth, comfortable motion and enable its crew to enjoy the various conditions that the sea delivers.    The deck layout and the interior design offer comfortable spaces for sailing, entertaining and relaxation.  

We hope that you will take advantage and come and inspect this fine, pedigree sailing yacht.
