SHANNON COASTER 58: "Bring the waterview with you and get rid of the hired hands"

Walt Schulz's latest design should probably be called a small superyacht – maximum luxury with manageable size. The Shannon
Coaster 58 is a motor yacht with extended liveaboard accommodations, or in Walt's own words "a yacht where you can take your waterfront scenery and lifestyle with you no matter where your travels lead you."

The Shannon 58 Coaster was designed as the answer to the question: what yacht features the spacious and luxurious accommodations commonly found on an 80 foot plus yacht but does not require professional crew and the consequential loss of owner privacy? The problem is: if the owner opts for a smaller yacht, he will sacrifice comfort and livable space. If the owner chooses a larger yacht that will give him more room than a tiny summer cottage, he sacrifices ease of handling and most likely will require full-time captain/crew to assist him.

The new Shannon Coaster 58 is the solution to this paradox.

The Shannon Coaster 58 can be easily handled by an average couple without any crew or guests to help. The twin engine Shannon Coaster 58 will cruise economically at 12 -15 knots/14-18 mph (other speeds available) using the sea-kindly, shoal draft, and fuel-efficient patented SRD Tec Hull. The twin engines coupled with bow and stern thrusters will allow the most difficult docking maneuvers to be effortless. At the same time, the Shannon Coaster 58 has the interior volume (cleverly utilized) equal to most 80 footers. Of course, the Coaster 58 offers the same bullet-proof construction, finely finished joiner-work, sophisticated systems and custom-to-order opportunities that has earned Shannon Boat Company the reputation as one of finest yacht builders anywhere in the world since 1975. The Shannon Coaster 58 is the motor yacht for everyone looking not to compromise on seaworthiness and livability while still enjoying the exhilarating self-satisfaction of not being dependent on someone else to run your boat.
