Shannon 43 Ketch Bristol Rose. For the true yachting connoisseur comes a Shannon 43, a sensational and unique opportunity to own a handcrafted, semi-custom piece of American New England heritage. Built in the finest New England tradition in Bristol, Rhode Island, Shannons are as much a part of the New England landscape as Alden, Bristol, Herreshoff and Hinckley. The Shannon 43 was the most popular model, with actor Morgan Freeman amongst the discerning clientele. The bulletproof, state-of-the-art construction technique to a graceful Walt Shulz design with a modern centreboard underwater shape and Shannon�s signature Scutter rig (2 masthead foresails on stemhead and teak bowsprit) produces an exceptionally fast and weatherly, robust offshore yacht of traditional, timeless beauty in a hull renowned for its gentle, sea-kindly motion that keeps crew comfortable and well rested in heavy weather. In every condition and point of sail, she feels responsive yet solid underfoot. With 8�7� centreboard down draft on a close reach in 20 kts she slices through waves at 7.5+ kts with no slamming, the helm smooth and balanced with little tendency to head up and negligible leeway, her flared bow directs the waves and spray away from the cockpit. In 30kts, she makes 8-9 kts, yet in 10 kts apparent she still makes 5.5 kts. Offshore, she will log 150-180 mile days with ease - this one logged a 200 mile day between Galapagos and the Marquesas. The hull is constructed of hand-laid fiberglass with closed-cell foam core, the lead ballast surrounding the centerboard trunk is encapsulated within the hull, with access to the centerboard through the bilge in the main saloon. Bask in the warmth of traditional hand-rubbed cherry and teak and holly sole. Timber joinery is impeccable, and attention to detail is ubiquitous, with comfortable, sumptuous living above and below decks for a couple or small family. The u-shaped galley with plenty of handholds and edges to brace against facilitate easy movement below in a seaway. The L-shaped settee to starboard surrounds a drop-leaf table with lee cloths for both settees for comfortable sea berths. Both master stateroom forward (with full en-suite) and guest double aft to port are amply sized with plenty of stowage in deep shelves, drawers and lockers. A full-sized navigation station to port dedicates space to ship�s command. Yet with centreboard up draft of 4�9�, the Shannon 43 can anchor in close in any anchorage and explore coastlines and inlets where others stand-off. I am very excited to present Bristol Rose, a yacht conceived to cross oceans, yet is as perfectly at home on a weekend cruise or impromptu afternoon sail. ● Variable draft ● Wind generator on mizzen mast ● Monitor wind vane self steering ● Generous house battery bank and water tankage ● 4 burner stove & oven ● Espar heater for high latitude sailing ● Dedicated wet locker aft of day head ● New upholstery ● 4 anchors, 2 on bowsprit, offset for easy handling ● 63' allows clearance for the Intracoastal Waterway bridges ● FULLY IMPORTED into Australia A truly glorious yacht which surpasses global luxury yacht brands like Hallberg Rassy, Malo, Amel, Discovery and Oyster.

Franchini Centre Cockpit Masthead Sloop, Italian designed and engineered for blue water excellence, aft cabin with island bed, rigging 2015, sails 2016, air conditioning, solar - fully loaded... just sail away into the sunset. Franchini is a build not often seen on Australian waters so you may not be familiar with the 45L. As a capable offshore vessel it is hard to find anything comparable to Moonshine at this price point in similar condition or construction. These elements alone warrant cause for further investigation of this well presented Franchini 45L. The Italian craftsmanship is superb and the construction of the vessel is sturdy to say the least. From the hull to the topsides, from the interior layout to the joinery and woodwork everything is well thought out and executed just as well inspiring the confidence to travel far. The current owners have done just this - travelled far and travelled wide, experienced the joy of the open ocean that is the 45L. Be inspired... now perhaps it is time for you to plot the next course, throw the lines and set sail. Moonshine and the deep blue yonder await.
