General Description

Kittiwake is a wonderful example of the ever popular Shannon 43. Well known as one of the world's best bluewater cruising yachts, Shannon has built an enthusiastic following, due to her timeless design, quality construction and attention to detail.


Kittiwake is nicely equipped with an easily handled but effective cutter rig and centerboard system all devised by Shannon.


Safety while at sea was a major concern with the designers and thus the cockpit is deep with good backrests and the helm is with the reach of the sheet winches. The interior has numerous handholds for safe maneuvering in a seaway.

All systems are in good working order. Her shallow draft (4'9"with the board up) makes her ideal for cruising the east coast and her mast height of 63' allows clearance for the Intracoastal Waterway bridges.
