1985 Shannon 43 located in North Carolina for sale

43' Shannon 43

North Carolina

Description: The Shannon 43 has been described as the ultimate long-distance short-handed passagemaker. Walter Schulz's design features and Shannon's construction are remarkable, and the 43's classic lines have been turning heads for nearly three decades.

Colleen Mae is a fully equipped and beautifully maintained example. Stepping aboard, you'll notice an abundance of cruising gear including a bimini and dodger with full enclosure for the spacious cockpit, air conditioning, and diesel heater. She has a new diesel engine and fuel tanks, and the rest of her systems and gear have been replaced and upgraded regularly. See the equipment list below for details.

The centerboard keel provides excellent stability and upwind performance while drawing less than 5 feet, allowing access to anchorages and harbors where other boats this size must anchor farther out. The ketch rig with twin headstays and club-footed staysail is ideal for short-handed sailing and flexible for a wide range of wind conditions.

This is truly a boat that will carry you over the horizon and return you safely home. She is located on our dock here at Carolina Wind Yachting Center in Washington, NC. Contact us at 252.946.4653 to arrange a visit. View full listing at www.carolinawind.com.

Equipment: Stepping down the companionway, the nav desk and galley are to starboard, with the private aft cabin to port. Just forward of the aft cabin is a head with separate shower stall. Two medicine cabinets and additional storage reside under the sink. Each Shannon 43 is different as the interiors were custom-built to the specifications of the original owners. Colleen Mae has a white fiberglass grooved headliner with removable sections and teak battens. The joinery of the teak interior exhibits the New England tradition of fine craftsmanship.

The main saloon has an entertainment center with stereo and Boston speakers. The L-shaped settee to starboard converts to a double berth, and the straight port settee also pulls out to form a double berth. Both are equipped with leecloths and have storage behind the backrests. The double-leaf dining table has two centerline storage compartments, and there are more storage lockers and shelves outboard of the settees. The interior cushions were new in 2005 and are in good condition.

Forward of the saloon on the starboard side is the forward head, which also has a separate shower stall and additional storage. The V-berth master cabin forward has a custom foam mattress (new 2010) with filler section creating a king-size berth, with shelves outboard and lockers below.
