1986 Shannon 37

Tiverton, Rhode Island, United States


Born as a blue water cruising boat, the Shannon 37 is one of the designs that made Shannon Yachts a formidable semi-custom boat builder. This traditional design by Walter Schultz, has a heavy displacement and long keel. This makes for comfortable offshore sailing, while her multiple sail plan make short-handed voyaging possible.   . Practical Sailor reports that the Shannon 37 compare favorably to other full-bodied cruisers, including the Pacific Seacraft, the Cabo Rico 38, and Tayana 37.
