1978 Shannon 38 Ketch

Without a doubt, one of the better-known cruising boats, from the 1970's. The Shannon's were designed and built in Bristol, Rhode Island and the 38's are known seaworthy boats, with a comfortable motion and easily handled offshore.

"Endeavour" was in the process of getting some attention both from Shannon and Brewer Yacht Yards. Much has been done but is in need of a new owner to attend to some tasks in getting her seaworthy again.

She is in need of some attention, but a worthwhile yacht.

The boat is laid up ashore, at our yard in Portsmouth, Rhode Island and viewing by appointment.
