Excerpted from “The World’s Best Sailboats” by Ferenc Mate:
“…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 well regardless of the weather. Walter Schulz’s Shannons fit that description to perfection.”
“people want a boat that is easy to sail and comfortable for long passages….. they want flexible interiors that won’t cost an arm and a leg ……. they want the performance of a racing boat with the storage capacity of a barge. Walter has found the right combination.”
