• The Shannon 47/52 is a medium displacement boat built to the strongest construction standards in the industry that provides the necessary water and fuel capacities, and creates an environment where people can sail safely, comfortably, and quickly no matter how long or short the passage.

• The cockpit is the best among mid-size cruisers, with ample room including 6' 7" long seats, giving both a place to lie down and good access to a deep sail locker on the port side of the cockpit.
