Ohana – A term founded in Hawaiian culture to express the bond and togetherness of family. A perfect name for a yacht such as this. The Shannon HPS, otherwise known as the High Performance Sailor, is a unique blend between the advantages and simplicities of a power yacht and the romanticism and luxuries of a sailboat. Her twin screws powered by two Yanmar 110 HP diesels offer the advantage of maneuverability and economic cruising under power making her capable of up to 12 knots under power with a range up to 1,500 NM yet with satisfying speeds of up to 10 knots under sail. Ohana is bound by few limits. With her ICW friendly main and mizzen masts and gunkholing shoal draft of a mere 4’ 9”, she’s ideally suited for remote and otherwise restricted destinations for yachts of such size. Perfect for the Bahamas or shallow waters of South Florida, yet capable and equipped for much longer voyages.
Offered for sale by her original owner, she’s been exceptionally well kept and professionally maintained since commissioned. Lightly used, there’s hardly a blemish about her. The hull shines as brilliant as the day she was launched while her machinery with less than 500 hours, and equipment maintained to top-standards, have seen hardly more than day sails and week long cruises to the Florida Keys.
Ohana is tastefully appointed with a Cherry interior with raised panel joinery and solid teak and holly cabin soles built to a standard of quality by which Shannon is renowned. Two spacious cabins and three heads, an enviously sized galley, and an open concept main salon provide the owner and guests with the comforts and luxuries that stretch beyond one’s expectation.
Interior Styling & Features:
The main salon is accessible through one of three companionways. The main companionway leads forward from the cockpit while two additional companionways are located to port and starboard to provide easy access to the side decks. The open concept salon is incredibly bright and full of natural light. Large panoramic windows deliver spectacular views while ensuring unrestricted visibility from the pilothouse helm located to starboard. The windows to port and starboard are tinted to reduce the interior temperature and make for a more enjoyable experience. Three subdued sunlights, two opening Bomar hatches with OceanAir screens and shades, and nine overhead LED stainless steel lights further enhance the interior lighting.
Room for entertaining is bountiful. A large dinette table with leaf insert offers seating for six, or eight with additional seating inboard. The L-shaped settee is raised to ensure wonderful views while dining and provided the added benefit of additional storage with top and drawer access.
To starboard, the beautifully crafted cherry cabinetry includes an entertainment center with smoked Lexan door, additional storage, a pullout liquor rack with bottle storage for 2-cases of wine, and a dedicated double door cabinet with all the components and service items for the water maker system. Forward to port, is a large opening chart table which conceals a 32” flat screen TV complete with DirecTV receiver and integrated stereo system.
The size and luxurious appointment of Ohana’s master stateroom is simply unrivaled. She was built with the comfort and satisfaction of the owner at the forefront of her design. The king size berth is situated in such a way as to ensure your first sensation every morning is a welcomed view of the beautiful landscape beyond the transom of the yacht. Cherry cabinetry throughout the stateroom is abundant with a desirable amount of storage, hanging lockers, and bookshelves.
The best feature of the master stateroom is the walk-through entry leading to the aft porch, complete with full enclosure. You’ll surely enjoy the views as you soak in the morning sun and pleasures of life.
Your guests will enjoy the VIP accommodations and exquisite comfort awaiting them aboard Ohana. The forward queen size berth is flanked by cherry cabinetry with raised panel doors and ample shelving for personal items. Twin louvered hang lockers, a full bank of drawers under the berth, and ensuite vanity are a few of the desirable features of this spectacular cabin that rival the master stateroom of any other yacht.
The luxury and comforts of Ohana are not limited to wonderful views and comfortable accommodations. The galley is enviously sized and open to the living space of the main salon or the smaller dinette adjacent to starboard. Equipped with the finest features and appliances such as Dickinson Mediterranean cookery, massive front-loading refrigeration and freezer boxes as well as a second top-loading double seal freezer box ensures the comforts of land translate to your enjoyment at sea. For the chef, the quality of the appliances, abundant storage, and sizable Granite styled Corian counter top surfaces will be much appreciated. A dedicated pantry, pullout rubbish bin, and large storage lockers for pots and pans are just a few of the desirable features.
Perfect for a quaint breakfast for two or a quick lunch at sea, the lower dinette is both functional and practical while underway. With little effort, the table lowers and can be converted to single berth with a curtain able to be drawn for added privacy. For long passages, this makes for a very comfortable and properly situated sea berth.
Forward facing navigation desk with an adjustable pedestal seat. Bank of three drawers inboard with chart locker outboard with raised panel doors. Two shelves outboard for ships manuals and documents. Opening portlight and two overhead stainless-steel ceiling lights. Navigators desk lamp over the desktop. Hinged access to electrical components behind the distribution panels. Overhead drop down locker for additional storage.
Among the best features of Ohana is the pilothouse helm station. From the climate-controlled comfort of the main salon and Stidd 500 six-way adjustable captain’s chair, the helmsmen will appreciate the unrestricted visibility forward, to port and starboard, and for sail trim. Full control of the ships systems is at your fingertips and sensibly configured for ease of operation.
The hull form of the Shannon HPS, also known as the High-Performance Sailor, was envisioned to offer the pleasures of sailing blended with the benefits of a trawler. She’s a unique motorsailor, unlike anything available. A knowledgeable yachtsman with a keen eye for design will notice the purposeful configuration of her under body and systems which ensure efficiency and performance both under power and sail. A fine entry forward with flares in the waist and flatter sections carry the wide 17’ 6” beam aft to produce a waterline that is nearly the entire length of the boat. This ensures not only form stability under sail with minimal heeling motion, but also an astounding amount of interior volume and living space. The shallow draft of only 4’ 9” enables the Shannon High Performance Sailor to reach destinations unheard of for a sailing yacht of this size. Ohana will easily make 9 knots at a 35 to 40-degree wind angle in just 15 knots of wind with less 15 degrees of heeling motion.
True to Shannon quality, the hull is a single-part lamination with stitched biaxial figerglass cloth. Vinylester resin in the outer skins ensure protection against osmosis. The hull’s core is linear Corecell foam set in Core-Bond, a two-part polyester-based adhesive. The deck is cored with cross-linked foam. The hull to deck joint is bonded and mechanically fastend with stainless steel bolts on 8-inch centers with bi-axial laminates backing the internal hull flange. The keel is cast lead encapsulated in the hull.
The Shannon HPS makes maximum utilization of every inch of space both below deck and above. With safety and comfort at the forefront, all areas of the deck are easily traversed with solid stainless-steel railings from stem to stern with side boarding gates to port and starboard mid-ship. The large bulwark is molded to the deck and provides another element of security as you move about the boat underway. The foredeck, an often-underutilized space on many yachts, is spacious and provides the added room for lounging and relaxing both underway or at anchor. Traverse the wide side decks unhindered. The shrouds are inboard, and lines led outboard and neatly back to the cockpit. Walking to the stern of the yacht, there are molded stairwells with railings leading both to the aft porch and upper deck to the spacious cockpit. With just enough teak trim to give the look and feel of a proper yacht, yet not enough to be a hassle, the aesthetics are both pleasing and easy to maintain.
A yacht with a porch. Yes, you read that correctly. The stern porch is quite easily one of the best features of Ohana. This full beam outdoor lounge with full enclosure, overhead LED lighting, a Dickerson propane grill, and stereo speakers integrated into the ships entertainment system provides a welcome on the water retreat. Perfect for a patio set or lounge seating with a private entrance to the master stateroom and a full-size window to offer the owners breathtaking views each morning.
A locking transom gate leads to the large water level swim platform complete with two rod holders, stern windlass with dedicated chain and anchor locker, and two massive lazarettes that span the full beam of the yacht. Two additional lockers are located on the porch.
Cruise the intracoastal waterway or venture offshore, Ohana is capable and comfortable for both. The Selden main and mizzen masts are ICW friendly!
Central to the design of the Shannon HPS is the ability for her to be sailed with simplicity and comfort. She’s an easy boat to handle and can be sailed with virtually the press of a button. Her sail handling systems and cockpit helms are refined and sensible with seating at each helm for two people. Visibility is superb with 360 degree views from the comfort of the raised cockpit. Well above the spray of the sea and well protected by the full beam bimini and dodger recently installed in October 2018.
Seating is borderline excessive, for those who enjoy entertaining there will surely be no complaints. Two separate lounges located to port and starboard offer their own folding tables with cup holders abound and storage below. The seat backs are tall and supportive and there is loads of storage beneath each lounge. The cockpit also has an Isotherm refrigerator with slide out drawer.
Ohana is powered by twin 110HP Yanmar 4JH4-THE turbo diesel engines. With her hull form and design, she is capable of 12 knots with a cruising range of up to 1,500 NM! Very lightly used and with less than 450 hours, she’s been professionally maintained and serviced since new. She is current and up to date on all service with records diligently documenting each service interval.
Mechanical system access is remarkable. The mechanical room is as well organized and smartly configured as the rest of the yacht. The mechanical access to the engine and generator is unrestricted, making regular maintenance hassle free.
