1979 Shannon 28 located in Maryland for sale

28'' Shannon 28


Description: The Shannon 28 is a rare jewel and the ideal two person blue water cruising boat. These classic beauties are boats that are passed along lovingly by owners who are truly sad to part with them.
Shannon hand-built only 55 Shannon 28s, beginning in 1978 until they retired the model in 1986. Cutter rigged with a cutaway forefoot, internally ballasted fixed keel, our offering has tiller steering, a skeg hung rudder and a keel stepped mast. The interior joiner work is impressive and comprised of teak and mahogany throughout. The hull sides and interiors of the cabinetry are all lined in wood. The cabin sole is solid wood with inlaid ribbons, not just marine plywood as you see in most boats. All of these little details are expensive to do, but represent a level of quality not found every day.

The Shannon 28 is a boat suited for a lifetime of sailing- no matter where you sail.

Easy to handle, she has been easily single handed by her current owner since he bought her. Time marches on and he finds, to his great dismay, that he needs to part with her. I’ve known her last two owners as well, dating back to around 1990 or so. All three have truly loved her and felt she was a wonderful little yacht. She has voyaged from Maine to the Caribbean many times over the years & shows no signs of wanting to stop. If you are looking for a beautiful timeless classic she is certainly worthy of your personal inspection. Call to make an appointment to see her today!
