The Shannon 38 is a long range, off shore sailing yacht offering performance to provide exciting off shore/coastal cruising. Every possible feature has been incorporated in the design and construction of the Shannon to create a seaworthiness, comfort and speed in all wind and sea conditions. Over the years, Shannon has established a reputation of building the finest yachts in the world.

We purchased Journey in 2014 and have upgraded her for longer offshore passages and off the grid sailing by adding numerous new systems and a new engine. Since then we have sailed her twice from Hilton Head/SC to Bahamas and back with our two children where she has proven to be a very safe and seaworthy vessel. We have done numerous off shore trips to the gulf stream and traveled along the ICW. She has brought a love for sailing to our whole family and we wish to continue this dream on a larger scale that requires a bigger vessel for our size family.
