PRELIMINARY INFORMATION SUBJECT TO OWNER'S APPROVAL ADDITIONAL PHOTOS COMING SOON! The Shannon 28 is a rare jewel and the ideal two person blue water cruising boat. These classic beauties are boats that are passed along lovingly by owners who are truly sad to part with them. Shannon Yachts was founded in 1975 by Walter Schultz. Based in Bristol, Rhode Island, he has held true to his initial vision- to build offshore cruising boats to the highest standards possible. To this day Shannon Yachts has done just that, from 24? to 57?, earning an international reputation for their offshore integrity.  All of his designs have been logging millions of offshore miles (mostly by couples) and have been seen in every major harbor around the world. The Shannon 28 was included in Ferenc Mate's compilation of the world's best sailboats for good reason. Comfortable, stable sailing platforms, they are solid enough to easily circumnavigate, nimble enough to day sail, sea kindly classic beauties that turn heads wherever they go. Shannon hand-built only 55 Shannon 28s, beginning in 1978 until they retired the model in 1986. Cutter rigged with a cutaway forefoot, internally ballasted fixed keel, our offering has tiller steering, a skeg hung rudder and a keel stepped mast. The interior joiner work is impressive and comprised of teak and mahogany throughout. The hull sides and interiors of the cabinetry are all lined in wood. The cabin sole is solid wood with inlaid ribbons, not just marine plywood as you see in most boats. All of these little details are expensive to do, but represent a level of quality not found every day.   The Shannon 28 is a boat suited for a lifetime of sailing- no matter where you sail. Easy to handle, she has been easily single handed by her current owner since he bought her. Time marches on and he finds, to his great dismay, that he needs to part with her. I?ve known her last two owners as well, dating back to around 1990 or so. All three have truly loved her and felt she was a wonderful little yacht. She has voyaged from Maine to the Caribbean many times over the years and shows no signs of wanting to stop. If you are looking for a beautiful timeless classic she is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. Call to make an appointment to see her today!
