Shannon 28

Our gorgeous and classic Shannon 28 is for sale. She is ready to go! We are sailing her back from the Bahamas this week. She is a wonderful liveaboard and basically sails herself. We sailed her from Maine and sailed around the Bahamian islands for the last four months. She has all the extras and an amazing, comfortable layout. We can deliver her anywhere on the Florida East Coast.

Asking $52,000

Please pm for more pics

Re: Shannon 28

MOre info: pics to come!

This Shannon 28 is ready to go sailing! We left Maine in September and sailed her down the east coast, then cruised the Bahamas for the past 3 months. We just arrived in Florida this week, where we plan to sell her before returning to Maine.

More Info, pics, and videos at:



condition: Ready to Cruise

length overall (LOA): 31

make / manufacturer: Shannon

model name: Shannon 28

propulsion type: sail and inboard diesel (Yanmar)

Our Shannon 28 (Tiny Bubbles II) is a young sailboat, having spent all her years in New England's short seasons. My wife and I will always be pocket cruisers at heart, having spent our first 3 years of marriage cruising across the Pacific in a small sailboat. We are a family of 5 now, and our crew members are not getting any smaller, so it is time to sell our beloved Tiny Bubbles II.

Our Shannon 28 has been maintained to the highest standard. We have prepared her for long range cruising, and we have sailed her along Maine's coast each summer. In September 2017 we began a family adventure, cruising her south through every state on the east coast! She is the perfect boat for such undertakings, with her 4'3" draft and 44' bridge clearance. My wife always says, "When the kids are grown, and it's just the 2 of us again, I want to go back to the Shannon 28."


The Shannon 28 remains one of the favorite classic models of the Shannon line. Every conceivable item, from hull design to the layout of the galley dish locker, was incorporated to produce the finest yacht possible.

The interior of Tiny Bubbles II is finished in handcrafted teak in a satin finish. The sole is teak and holly. The interior is configured in the highly desired Shannon "B" layout with wrap-around main cabin settee.

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. Interior cushions are navy blue Sunbrella fabric, with ripstop nylon covers for protection. 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 additional manual fresh water 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 and a unique folding counter extension to left of sink, knife rack and spice rack. Six bronze opening ports with screens offer good ventilation. Double hinged forward cabin hatch and Bomar overhead hatch both with teak framed screens.
