This Shannon 43 cutter "Aurora" was built in Rhode Island by Shannon Boat Company and is the one of the finest blue water cruising yachts available. It is the perfect boat to sail and live aboard anywhere in the world, while maintaining a comfortable lifestyle. The Shannon 43 was designed to expertly combine superb offshore sailing characteristics with good speed and exceptional seaworthiness. It is the most popular model of the Shannon line.
"Aurora" has undergone an extensive refit. The owner has retired from yachting and is motivated to sell.
