• There has never before been a sailboat like the Shoalsailer. The Shoalsailer provides excellent all-around sailing and, most importantly, windward performance in water less than 3 feet deep.

• While many other monohulls and multihulls claim shoal draft sailing, they all require lowering deep centerboards or daggerboards in order to actually sail in any direction except downwind. The Shoalsailer does not have nor need a centerboard or daggerboards.

• The Shoalsailer has over 29,000 pounds of stability at 58 degrees of heel and remains positive until 112 degrees. In comparison, a catamaran has high initial stability up to 20 degrees of heel but then rapidly falls off to 90 degrees when the vessel becomes inverted. Even when compared to a deep draft monohull of similar size, the chart shows that the Shoalsailer is a very safe and stable boat.

• The Shoalsailer’s 12' 9" beam allows the boat to be berthed in conventional marina slips.

• The Shoalsailer has a cruising speed of 7 knots with its standard 40 HP diesel engine.

• The hull on the Shoalsailer is designed, engineered and constructed to be beached and withstand the rigors of shoal water sailing. The dual rudders swing up and the propeller is protected by the shallow keel/skeg. The lead ballast in the keel was designed to absorb impact from groundings.

• The Shoalsailer has a huge comfortable cockpit and a deck that was designed for ease of movement and relaxation. The trunk cabin features a sun deck lounging.

• The Shoalsailer’s cabin is as spacious as a multihull and offers full 6'-5" headroom. At Shannon, all interiors are custom designed to suit each owner’s specific cruising needs.

• The Shoalsailer is available with a high performance, fractional sloop rig or the Shannon custom “Scutter” rig. More information.....

• The Shoalsailer is built to the exact same highest quality construction standards as the Shannon offshore line of yachts that has earned an international reputation for safety, performance and comfort since 1975.
