Shannon Boat Company of Bristol, RI was founded in 1975 by Walter Schultz and David Walters to build strong, comfortable offshore cruising yachts. Over the years Shannon Boat Company built a reputation for quality, comparable to the best including Hinckley in the US and the best in Europe. Many Shannons have circumnavigated and the company offered a wide range of designs. Every Shannon is a semi-custom yacht built for a specific owner and is painstakingly constructed to the highest standards using the finest materials.
Miramar is no different, and in many respects the finest yacht that Shannon was tasked to construct. The yachts owners, both knowledgable sailors, were highly involved in the yachts construction as they fitted Miramar with features, layouts, and materials that would make the yacht not only personally theirs but also provide a striking appeal to guests and other experienced yachtsmen. Miramar’s build was so detailed and extensive that construction was started in 2012 with full commissioning not occurring until 2014. Shannon wanted to make sure that Miramar was the best yacht they had ever built, to be the jewel of the sea and the queen of the boat shows.
The Shannon 52 RDP is a pilot yacht designed for those looking for a modern styled, luxurious, short-handed ocean cruiser that allows them to get out of the weather. The 52 RDP is not a motor-sailor, but a full fledged sailing yacht with many of the benefits found in pilothouse and motor-sailor designs. Miramar is fitted with the Walter Schultz designed ‘Sketch’ rig. This allows the yacht to sail well in a wide range of wind speeds without putting crew outside of the cockpit. Double head stays are fitted with furlers for a full size 135% genoa and yankee. Leisurefurl booms for the mainsail and mizzen. There is also a mizzen staysail. A cable staysail halyard is fitted for the addition of a storm staysail if required. An asymmetrical spinnaker is aboard in an ATN sleeve for easy use off the wind. One of the owners requirements was that the yacht be functional in the ICW which she is thanks for her Sketch rig height under 64′ and shoal draft of 5′ 9″ with the centerboard raised.
