Nighthawk  is a stunning example of the ever popular Shannon 43. Well known as one of the world's best bluewater cruising yachts, Shannon has built an enthusiastic following, due to her timeless design, quality construction and attention to detail.

Nighthawk is nicely equipped with an easily handled but effective cutter rig and centerboard system all devised by Shannon.

  • 75 hp Yanmar diesel engine with 2400 hours ( new in 2008)
  • Bow thruster
  • Seafrost refrigeration/freezer

Above are bookshelves on each side and louvered cabinets for storage. With the teak bulkheads, teak and holly sole plus high gloss headliner, a wonderful ambiance is created. There are opening ports and hatches for ventilation and four chrome reading lights as well as ceiling lighting.
