The Shannon 28 "Jamie" has provided her only owners incredible cruising experiences over the last 36 years. Starting from their home in Alaska, "Jamie" has visited many cruising destinations along the Atlantic and Pacific coats of North and Central America. During this time the owners constantly maintained and upgraded every system on "Jamie".  Now the time has come for the owners of "Jamie" to pass along stewardship of this remarkable pocket world cruiser.  For anyone living on the west coast and especially the Pacific Northwest there will be considerable savings of not having to truck the boat.    


The interior of "jamie" is finished in handcrafted teak in a satin finish.  The sole is solid teak and holly.  The interior is configured in Shannon's "A" layout with an open main bulkhead. 

Starting forward, there is access to the anchor locker.  Next is the double V-berth with open shelves to port and starboard and storage under.  Just aft of the V-berth are settees port and starboard with a centerline drop down, teak table.  The settees slide inboard to form two more berths.  These berths are equipped with lee cloths for secure offshore sleeping.  Outboard of the settees, port and starboard, are two enclosed louver-door lockers and open shelves.  Aft of the port berth is a hanging locker, followed by an enclosed head area.   

The head includes two medicine cabinets, wet hanging locker and hamper.  Plumbing includes a stainless steel sink and shower, both with hot and cold pressure water, a Wilcox-Crittenden marine toilet with holding tank and direct discharge seacock.

Opposite to starboard is the well-appointed galley.  The stainless steel sink is forward, served by hot and cold pressure water with manual fresh pump.  The two-burner propane gas stove with an oven is amidships and the large (6 cu ft) icebox is aft.  There are numerous lockers for storage.  Six bronze opening ports with screens offer good ventilation. Hinged forward cabin hatch.

Behind the companionway ladder is the electrical panel and the engine access door.
