43' Shannon 1988 Anna Crewe


If you want great sturdy ocean going sailboat with your pocket book in mind, and you know you want a capable boat that can sail far if you desire, well… there is only a handful of high caliber, robustly built, proven sailingyachts out there to choose from. Our blue water boat favorites are always the ones that beautiful, safe, comfortable and capable and those that will hold their value.This Shannon is one of them. The Shannon 43!

One of our all time favorite builders has and will always be Shannon Yachts, an icon of New England Boatbuilding for some forty years. Shannon Yachts are beautiful, no compromise, world voyagers; if you look at the 38, 43, now 47 and theirold flagship, the 50/51 it is easy to see why we all agree they are lovely. Of all the Shannon Yachts, it is the 43 that seems most perfect for a couple or a small family. Indeed they are all as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside.

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. She is big enough to carryeverything you need with amazing capacity for fuel and water and storage for ships stores to venture far. 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.

Our special offering, the Shannon 43 Anna Crewe is a lucky boat with magnificent owners who have maintained her well and used her lightly. They replaced the diesel in 2017 just for you and they have invested in making Anna Crewe a lovely comfy cruiser in Puget Sound. Now she is ready for a new owner to take the helm!
