The Shannon 43 is a perfect couples’ cruising yacht of hand-built pedigree. She features a large saloon and galley, great accommodation for guests, a versatile sail plan, protected cockpit and centerboard shoal-draft accessibility.
SQUANDO features a two-cabin, two-head layout with abundant storage. She is beautifully finished below in a raised-panel cherry interior with teak sole boards. The joinery work, finish and hardware detail are first class.
Well cared for by her owner, SQUANDO has benefited from many recent upgrades including Axiom series Raymarine electronics, “Black” Awlgrip topsides, Westerbeke generator, recent sail inventory and interior upholstery.
Currently stored indoors, SQUANDO is easy to view in a heated building.
