The Shannon 28 offers unique possibilities as the world's best pocket cruising yacht under 30 feet, and "Alona" has lived up to that potential.  "Alona" is as well equipped as any Shannon 28 cutter that has come on the market recently.  The current owner has realized his family's dreams sailing "Alona" to Bermuda and the Bahamas, as well as summer cruising in New England. He is  professional merchant marine seaman, so he has spared no expense to make "Alona" sound and seaworthy.  If you are looking to head any where in the world with confidence in your boat, then you owe it to yourself to look at "Alona".
