Shannon has long been known to build solid one-piece hulls with no keel bolts. They have been using the best technology of the day to create a very strong and handsome classic yacht.
Over the years they have perfected the keel/centerboard design which allows for the ability to explore and anchor in shallower waters plus have a deep draft for offshore or windward work.
Exceptional sailing performance and a customized interior make the Shannon 43 the foremost yacht for coastal cruising or long-distance passage-making. While offering a traditional look above the waterline, the Shannon 43 exemplifies state-of-the-art design and construction techniques. She is fast on all points of sail, seaworthy, and comfortable. A boat for two-person sailing and liveaboard, with two private staterooms and dual head arrangements, she provides accommodations for owners and guests.

Every Shannon is delivered fully commissioned with an extensive list of standard equipment ready for an extended voyage.The underwater hull design is a keel centerboard design and the rig is an easily handled double headsail cutter.
