The Shannon 43 “Patriot” has been well maintained and updated over the years by only three very knowledgeable owners. The Shannon 43 is the perfect boat for a couple to liveaboard/extended cruising. “Patriot” exemplifies our excellent reputation for the ultimate fast (17 day 22 hour 3,000 miles Transatlantic passage Buzzards Bay to Ireland), comfortable, short- handed long distance ocean cruiser. Of all the fifty two Shannon 43 built to the highest standards by Shannon Boat Company, Bristol, RI, “Patriot has probably the most exquisite interior woodwork, as the original owner was the “Bill Gates of Canada, and he spared for expense in creating his vision of a proper yacht. All the exterior teak on "Patriot" was striped and re-varnished bright by the skilled Shannon crew in July 2019.
