The Shannon 45 is a perfect solution for owners who require an all-weather motor yacht for extended cruising or weekend jaunts offshore. Though designed in the style of a classic trawler, Suis Soleil actually has a Deep-V planing hull that allows the yacht to reach a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots.

The Shannon 45 achieves a cruising range of 700 miles with twin diesel engines and 750 gallons of fuel.  The planing hull and flared bow keep water and spray off the deck and give the Shannon Voyager 45 the ability to cruise at fast or moderate speeds in any wind or sea condition.

Shannon Yachts are better known as a high end custom builder of sailboats. Her design is a typical trunk cabin cruiser but with a full beam aft sundeck.  This makes the aft cabin larger and the sundeck has more usable room for family and guests. Two couples can cruise in comfort and safety.

The main salon has a classic look with teak and holly sole.  A large chart table is forward, to port.

A settee is also to port with dark green leatherette fabric and a high/low table with two side extensions.  Also to port is a wet bar with a brass sink, ice maker, built-in wine rack and a custom liquor cabinet.

Three steps lead to a companionway with hinged doors and a lifting hatch.  This feature opens up the salon to the sundeck and provides easy access to the flybridge.
