* Stability numbers and formulas are for comparative purposes only. Since the 1998 Sydney/Hobart Race disaster involving over 100 boats of different size with different stability numbers, it was generally concluded that theoretic stability numbers had no impact on actual knockdowns or capsizing of various vessels involved.

With Walt Schulz’s revolutionary patented hull design, the Shannon 53 HPS sails away from conventional cruising sailboats and powers past conventional displacement trawlers. For anyone confronted with the problem of finding the right “next” boat, a closer examination of the Shannon 53 HPS is the solution. The Shannon 53 HPS is proof that since 1975 the ongoing goal at Shannon has been to be the leader in innovation and quality, with unlimited collaboration during every phase of the thoroughly enjoyable design, construction and ownership process.
