Testimonials

In a word "Terrific". 

- Frank Davenport - Seller of Hylas 49

Just wanted to take the opportunity to pass on my deep appreciation for a job well done.  I know Ohana was a tough boat to sell and though I tried to keep her maintained as best I could from a distance, I believe all the attention to detail that you and Stuart brought to bear had much to do with her finding a new owner.  I'm sure the new owner will have many wonderful adventures with her...and yes, it is bittersweet, but I'd rather see her on the water and doing what she was built for!

I did enjoy working with you and your "can do" attitude.  In many ways, it was a good match since I'm the same way.  When you have a job to do, you do whatever it takes to get it done and done right.  As an old CMSGT once told me many, MANY years ago... "Just stay out of my way, boy, and you'll be amazed at the results."

- Mike Miravalle- Seller of Shannon 53 HPS

Josh Mclean bends over backward to satisfy both the buyer and the seller. He went out of his way to resolve issues with his own hands, on his free time, despite a pregnant wife waiting for him at home with a warm cooked meal because the buyer requested it. He is also a competent captain and knowledgeable pertaining yachts, navigation, repairs, financing and much more. You wouldn't regret giving him the opportunity to serve you.

- Pierre Holstein - Seller of Island Packet 31 Charity

Features include automated sail handling, the Leisure Furl in-boom mainsail furling, self-tacking staysail, oversized systems, expansive side decks with direct walk-thru access to the large center cockpit, and excellent walk-thru access to the immense center cockpit visibility from the helm enable this yacht to be very easily managed by a cruising couple.</p> <p>With her shoal draft of 5&rsquo; 8&rdquo; and an intercoastal waterway friendly bridge clearance of 64&rsquo;, SOOLAIMON can be sailed into anchorages and marinas not otherwise available to many yachts over 50&rsquo;. This is the ideal sailing yacht for a couple or family with a desire for limitless cruising without sacrificing the comforts of home.</p> <p>SOOLAIMON is among the most unique yachts in her class, as evidenced by her construction and specific attention to detail. She is easily sailed by one or two individuals, built to be a safe and robust passage maker. Most of the systems were installed from 2007 to 2015 and are of the best engineering and highest quality available. SOOLAIMON is genuinely a masterpiece of form, function, and beauty with an impeccable design. Her interior arrangement and deck layout are ideally suited for liveaboard, extended passage making shorthanded, or potentially suited for VIP chartering.</p> <p>There are few yachts so well designed and built as SOOLAIMON. Hundreds of additional details, large and small, make her very functional with exquisite joinery and system installation. "Elegant" is the word used by guests. Only during an inspection can one truly comprehend and appreciate the total commitment to quality, functionality, and beauty. With SOOLAIMON's shoal draft and low bridge clearance, she is excellent for the Bahamas and Keys as well as intercoastal travel along the US East Coast.</p> [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] E326D850-EFBE-D315-F96CAC1AF7A2344A [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] 1913 [empty string]

This Shannon 43 Ketch is ready to sail today.</p> <p>The Shannon cutter /ketch rig offers two independent headsails to facilitate shorthanded sailing, and the versatile keel/centerboard design provides shoal draft access to many additional anchorages. Aries does well in light winds or driving to windward with the centerboard down in bluewater and higher winds. Aries is very easy to sail with a couple and has a spacious interior arrangement. The design was featured in Ferenc Mate's "The World's Best Sailboats."</p> <p>Shannon Boat Company has a well-earned reputation for building among the world's finest and most beautiful offshore yachts. Aries is an excellent example of what New England artisans can achieve when given the time to do it right. The varnished cherry woodwork with raised panel doors provides a class ambiance. There are a high gloss grooved white headliner and teak and holly sole with white interior trunks.</p> <p>Aries is a two stateroom, two head layout with a generous salon and large U-Shaped galley. The interior is finished with a handsome cherry interior and a beautiful hand-laid teak and holly satin-finished cabin.</p> [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] F6495517-E549-0AE8-3EB8A2132DF6F343 [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] 1897 [empty string]
