The Shannon 39 “Four Points” is the epitome of flawless classic cruising sailboat design and best-in-the-world construction. With a proven Walt Schulz hull design, the Shannon 39 is perfect for blue water passage-making and shallow water gunkholing. “Four Points” is the ideal boat for a single-hander or couple to sail and live aboard anywhere in the world. The Shannon 39 is equally well suited for long-distance ocean voyaging or weekend cruising.  Exemplifying Shannon’s no compromise world renowned  construction techniques, the Shannon 39 has composite core (no balsa to rot) hull and deck.  After fulfilling their life-long cruising dreams, the owners of “Four Points” sadly have had to return to real life ashore.
