Brand New Engine - Equipped for World Travel - Extensive and Recent Refit

Buy groceries and go. With a brand new engine and the best equipped Shannon 43' on the market, this is the ultimate vessel for long distance cruising!

Boasting classic looks and uncompromising construction, she has been exceptionally well outfitted for extended passagemaking and purposefully designed for short handed sailing. The Shannon 43 is hallmarked by her kindly sea motion, excellent offshore sailing characteristics, and unquestionable seaworthiness.

Wild Goose exemplifies the finest qualities that constitute the Shannon 43 including the preferred cutter rig, solid rod rigging, a cockpit unrivaled by any boat her in size, and a layout below deck tailored for life underway with accommodations for seven between two staterooms with ensuite facilities. Her design incorporates a sea kindly forward hull section to avoid pounding in a seaway, an internal shoal draft keel configuration with centerboard providing access to many more anchorages, and a fully skegged rudder with protected propeller.

Having owned Wild Goose since 2006, her current owners have taken extraordinary pride in her care and upkeep. She has undergone two major refits in 2012 and again in 2016 with numerous updates in between.  After nearly 20,000 miles under the keel her owners were in the process of preparing to head back to sea when a change of circumstances dictated other plans.  She has been lovingly cared for and is outfitted to sail the world.  The only thing missing is a new captain and crew willing to do so!

Review by Ferenc Mate "The World's Best Sailboats"

“I have always been a fan of honest boats, boats that do one thing remarkably well instead of boats that try to be all things to all people, only to end up as everybody’s nightmare. And my favorite boats are still long-distance cruisers that can sail the seven seas ably and with good speed, built without compromise in construction or design to serve her crew regardless of the weather. Walter Schulz’s Shannon's fit that description to perfection”
