FISHING...CRUISING...SAILING.....WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR YOU

 

If you have limited mobility or are in a wheelchair and dream of fishing, cruising or sailing, or your present boat is not working for you, we can help you find a pre-owned boat that is suitable to be converted to accessible and adaptive use and that will fit your budget and specific needs. Each transformed boat will provide a warranty, the same custom features built into Shannon's Silver new boat line, docking lessons and a Shannon custom designed marina ramp and boatyard terrain power-assist boat wheelchair to get you to and from your boat safely.

 

Or, if your present boat qualifies for an adaptive or limited mobility conversion, Shannon will provide a free estimate for the work completed at our facility.  Shannon's experience in meeting the special demands of the disabled and converting and re-engineering existing boats is totally unique in the recreational boat industry.

 

All profits from Shannon's boat conversion work will go the Shannon River Foundation.

Appropriate powerboats from 28' to 50' can easily be converted to adaptive powerboats with the right

pre-engineered equipment installed for persons with limited mobility to enjoy for many years to come.
