Rare Find!! 1980 Shannon 38 Ketch/Cutter!! Not Many of These Around!!

For bluewater cruisers, and those wanting to bluewater cruise, the Shannon brand is often on the short list of highly desirable vessels. This 1980 Shannon 38 ketch (cutter rigged) is fit and ready to go.

The Shannon 38 is a rugged long-range offshore sailing yacht while still being an excellent coastal cruiser. Features have been incorporated into the design and construction of Shannon to create seaworthiness, comfort, and speed in all wind and sea conditions. This catch rig provides some of the most versatility of any modern rig for varied wind and sea conditions.

The interior of this particular Shannon 38 is finished in a warm satin finish teak that provides a homie and comforting feeling when enjoying the cabin.

Starting forward there is a large double V-berth with shelving to port and starboard and drawers below. It has access to the chain locker at the forepeak.

Moving aft, there is a handing locker and storage cabinet to port and a head with teak accents, toilet, sink, and hot and cold water shower with teak great to starboard.

The main salon is spacious and comfortable with a folding table center midship, a double pull-out settee to starboard, and a port side pilot berth. The table is teak with drop leaves and rails to keep items in place when at sea.

Aft on the port side is a hanging locker and storage cabinet followed by the NAV station and a quarter berth.

On the starboard side is the U-shaped galley with a gimbaled three burner propane stove with oven and broiler, and a deep double stainless steel sink.
