Vessel Walkthrough

Good Omens offers a three-stateroom, two-head layout that is finished in light oak trimmed with teak. The owner's quarters include a double berth to starboard, with chart storage under and ensuite head with separate stall shower.  In addition, there is a navigation station to port. This large, comfortable cabin offers direct access to the aft cockpit and has multiple drawers and hanging locker.


There are two companionway entrances, one aft directly from the cockpit and one amidships. The owner's cabin passageway leads forward by the first of the two guest cabins and U-shaped galley at the base of the forward companionway.  The midship guest cabin has upper and lower berths, a hanging locker and drawers.


Amidships is the main salon with a settee to port and a generous L-shaped settee to starboard. Lockers and shelves are built in outboard to starboard with additional storage compartments under and behind the settee backrests. The double leaf dining table is mounted on centerline providing dining from both the port and starboard settees. Forward is a private guest stateroom, head and separate stall shower which has been converted to a large locker with multiple shelves. Storage is exceptional throughout and includes many hanging lockers, drawers and storage compartments.


Good Omens’ galley features generous counter space (with new granite surface) and many storage lockers and drawer bank. The U shaped layout minimizes the cook's movements while preparing food at sea.  The galley is adjacent to the forward companionway for extra light and ventilation. A custom pantry locker is built in behind the adjoining companionway steps. The pressure water system has a new ten gallon hot water tank that operates both under power and at dockside.

Hull Construction

Hull construction features the preferred Airex coring providing extra strength and thermal and sound insulation. The deck is also fiberglass and is cored with balsa for strength and insulation. All the underdecks, headliners and hull interior wood coverings are fastened to ribs or battens to provide an air space. This space keeps the Shannon cooler in warm weather and retains heat when cruising in cooler climates.

  • New centerboard pennant and manual winch (2013)
  • Hull repainted (2007)

Main Deck

The Shannon 50's innovative deck design provides a double trunk arrangement with roomy aft cockpit and double companionways. Unlike most double entry sailboats, the Shannon 50's forward companionway entrance is accessed from deck level, not the higher top of the trunk cabin. This reduces the number of steps.  Opposite this entrance is an area between the forward and aft trunk cabins, that is ideal for the liferaft mounting.   By keeping the liferaft off the top of the cabin at deck level, it does not restrict visibility, is protected from heavy seas, and is easy to access. 


Experienced owners and surveyors have often complimented the Shannon 50's spacious aft cockpit  design and features. The cockpit's extra length angled floor at the separate steering station, high backrest, wide winch bases, and conveniently located switches are just a few of the benefits of the cockpit design. There is also plenty of room forward of the helm station for outdoor dining on a large removable table and lounging offshore under the full-width companionway dodger. Forward is a custom bowsprit with double bobstays, twin headstays and 2 bow rollers.
