The Shannon 43 has just about the world’s best cockpit wherein the helmsman has perfect seat with great visibility port and starboard. The Shannon 43 design combines excellent offshore sailing characteristics with good speed in even light air on all points of sail, and provides exceptional seaworthiness.The interior provides sumptuous space with a two stateroom layout for comfortableaccommodations for living aboard full time. The classic cutter rig with in mast furling and roller furling head sails provides the capability to shorten sail or set sail for each wind and sea condition you may find yourself in. With the cutter rig, the smaller headsails easily managed by a solo sailor or a couple. And with the in-mast furling mainsail, it is easy sailing from the safety of the cockpit.
The Shannon 43 is the perfect sailboat for a couple to sail together and live aboard anywhere in the world, while maintaining a comfortable lifestyle. The 43 is manageable underway by one person, but can provide accommodations for crew of family.

The design intent of the Shannon 43 hull was to create a boat that would perform well in the wide range of wind and sea conditions experienced by the offshore cruising sailor. With some 45 of them sailing around out there, we can say that the design works really well.
