The Shannon 50 was the flagship of the Shannon fleet of offshore sailing yachts.  This is the aft cockpit, dual entry ketch rigged version of the 50, and is a true blue water cruiser capable of taking its crew anywhere they wish to travel, safely, comfortably, and fast.  A classic looking boat with a flag blue hull that is very solidly built.  It does need some TLC to bring the exterior wood back to good condition, and has some water damage to the interior wood as well, but nothing that some care and clean-up won't resolve.   The boat is priced to sell, so call today to get aboard and take a look.....
