The Shannon 40 SRD, 48 SRD and 58 SRD (Schulz Reverse Deadrise) utilize Schulz' breakthrough patented hull design to achieve high performance (cruising speeds of 18 knots), outstanding fuel economy, seaworthiness and comfort under power and at anchor. All Shannon yachts are virtually custom construction, as are the new SRD motor yachts.
In celebration of Shannon’s 35th anniversary we are pleased to announce the latest design from Walt Schulz’s drawing board the Shannon 46 and 52 C-series. Walt looked to the past to create an improved Shannon for the future a cuddy cabin 46 and 52. Download the brochure in PDF

Aside from its beauty, the new Shannon 52 RDP design by Walt Schulz combines innovative comfort and proven seaworthiness.The comfort is provided by a new raised deck pilot concept incorporating an interior steering helm station.The seaworthiness is achieved by using the ocean tested Shannon 47/52 hull and blue water center cockpit design.

While sailing on Martha’s Vinyard Sound this summer, friends of Shannon, Mort Fortgang and Ken Babits spotted Shannon 53HPS on her way to Maine and sent us this photograph.
Life is so good on a Shannon!
On the classic restoration front, Walt was awarded “Best Conversion to Original Design Intent” at the 2010 Mystic Seaport Antique and Classic Boat Rendezvous for “Polaris”, his 47’ Pacific Pilot. “Polaris” was built in 1937 by Star Shipyards of British Columbia and used as a pilot boat on the notorious Columbia River, and later as a workboat in Alaska. Polaris is offered for sale at $175,000. Call 401-253-2441 for the full restoration details and photographs.
We have initiated a Fractional Ownership Program for select Shannon models. The program calls for a small number of individuals to jointly own a Shannon, with an experienced yacht management company knowledgeable in international logistics to operate the boat in conjunction with Shannon. The boat will be moved with the seasons to select locations worldwide by a professional captain with crew, with the owners having the option to go on these offshore passages. On arrival each owner (with the option of bareboat or crewed) will have a set number of weeks to use the boat. The management company will handle all the scheduling, and Shannon will be involved with all maintenance and service. At the end of ownership period, the boat will be sold, and with the historically high resale values of Shannons, the fractional owners should get all their original costs back. The three new Shannon models the Shannon 52 Global, Shannon 53 HPS, and Shannon 52 RDP are especially well suited for this program, as are any of the other Shannon models. If you have interest in this fractional ownership program, please contact Bill Ramos cell 401 639 9075 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
